Gov. Palin Is It!!! (Scroll for Updates)

McCain is a genius.
It's not official. But CNBC is reporting it and The Swamp. Update!!!: IT'S OFFICIAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She is perfect. Welcome aboard Hilllary supporters and PUMA'S!

Let's look at her:

Sarah Palin is both the youngest and the first female governor in Alaska’s relatively brief history as a state. She’s also the most popular governor in America, with an approval rating that has bounced around 90 percent.
This is due partly to her
personal qualities. When she was leading her underdog Wasilla high school basketball team to the state championship in 1982, her teammates called her “Sarah Barracuda” because of her fierce competitiveness. Two years later, when she won the “Miss Wasilla” beauty pageant, she was also voted “Miss Congeniality” by the other contestants.
Sarah Barracuda and Miss Congeniality — interesting nicknames for an interesting woman. Fire and nice. A happily married mother of five who is still drop dead gorgeous. And smart to boot.

But it’s mostly because she’s been a crackerjack governor, a strong fiscal conservative and a ferocious fighter of corruption, especially in her own party that she enjoys such high marks from her constituency.
And she is unashamedly pro-life stating that “every innocent life has wonderful potential.” This played out in a real-life drama for Palin and her husband when in April of this year
she delivered her 5th child who has Down Syndrome. She said this of her newborn son, Trig:

“I’m looking at him right now, and I see perfection. Yeah, he has an extra chromosome. I keep thinking, in our world, what is normal and what is perfect?”

She would be a decided asset and most certainly excite the base: an independent Republican governor, a woman, a fiscal conservative, a defender of life against the creeping culture of death and a fresh face in national politics.
*Also, she is a life long member of the NRA and loves to hunt and fish with her family. I love it! Her oldest son is in the military!

I can't express how happy I am about this.

*doing the happy dance!*
Update: CHECK OUT THE HILLARY CLINTON FORUM! They are pumped up about Palin!!! Yes!

*Update: She brought her whole family and baby!!!!!!! I am so excited I can hardly stand it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Update: I am watching Palin now. She brought her whole family and even the baby!! I love her!! It's her and her husband's 20th anniversary today. Let's see. Husband is member of the steelworkers union. Oldest son is in the army ready to be deployed to Iraq. Parents were teachers. She was a hockey Mom. She was reformer and stood up to special interests, oil companies, and the good ole' boy network. She is helping lead America into energy independence. Signed major ethics reforms. Appointed both Republicans and Democrats to positions in her administration. She said "no" to the "bridge to nowhere." Explains the heroism and leadership of McCain in a wonderful concise way. OMG, she is thanking Hillary Clinton. "Let's shatter the glass ceiling for good." LOVE IT!

Beautiful, smart, articulate, and passionate.
I think I see why McCain picked her.

Excuse me while I go write a check to McCain/Palin
