John McCain to Sarah Palin: I Choose You!

John McCain to Sarah Palin: I Choose You!

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate at a campaign rally on Friday in Dayton, Ohio.

Governor Palin is a tough executive who has demonstrated during her time in office that she is ready to be president,” the McCain campaign said Friday. “Governor Palin has the record of reform and bipartisanship that others can only speak of. Her experience in shaking up the status quo is exactly what is needed in Washington today.”

This move will sure pick up a few of the Hillary Clinton voters!

Little known facts: Palin came in second place at the Miss Alaska pageant in 1984. The 44-year-old Idaho-native also is the mother of five children.

    So McCain counters by choosing someone under investigation by their own state for abuse of power? Thanks Republicans.

    For those hillary supportes who are angry towards Obama, shame on you! Obama has done nothing but compete with Hillary Clinton just as Clinton did the same. And After hearing both Clintons speeches, I cannot believe you guys are still so anngry that you won’t even listen to the person you supported. This is exactly what Mccain wants to do by picking her. He hopes that it will further divide us and that women will go to him instead of Obama. I think HIllary supporters are a lot smarter than that. Prove me right, please..

    I’m extremely surprised she’s allowing herself to be used in the way she’s being used. When will it be learned that women are not a block vote? Also, the foreign policy deficency McCain has consistantly leveled on Obama apparently is a non issue in Palin’s case.

    This is gonna be good.

    To: to tia: “first (of) all the use of the word “chick” is both derogatory and demeaning.” Well, I hope Palin doesn’t object to McCain calling her a c*nt like he did his own wife. This pick is so desperate and dumb it’s staggering. So women are going to vote for this corpse just b/c his VP pick is a woman? Please! This makes George Bush’s choice of Dan Quayle look frickin brilliant!

    Ok, when I first found out who McCain chose as his running mate, I asked myself, “Who is Sarah Palin?” It is obvious that McCain has chosen her to try and entice Hillary supporters to go all republican. Now as a woman, I would flove to see another woman as president, even Vp. But that does mean I vote for any woman that comes along. Hell No!!! I am sorry McCain, but you must come better than that. What if the old far, whoops, I mean McCain has a heart attack or something? Is she really going to be able to assume the responsibility of Prez. ( that is if McCain wins the election)? And isn’t she being investigated by Alaskan authorities?

    I’m sorry but any Hillary supporter who votes for McCain because of this you do your candidate a grave disservice. You supposedly voted for Hillary because you valued her experience and her principles. Palin is lacking in both those departments. She is against the minimum wage, against a woman’s right to choose, and against equal pay for equal work for women. That in no way represents Hillary voters and you should know better. Palin is no Hillary Clinton.

    Awesome! Experience and talent! Plus, she didn’t have to marry into her ‘accomplishments’, the way Hillary did.

    # 15 Sarah @ 08/29/2008 at 2:40 pm Actually, she has more experience than Obama. This was a very smart pick for McCain. She’s very smart and would make a great Vice President. God bless her and her family, especially her son who’s heading off to Iraq to serve. Semper Fi!


    Explain her experience apart from being a Mayor of town of 9000, a Gov (Bush was Gov also so………..). I won’t ever diminish her accomplishments, but please don’t lets pretend she’s got a political resume under her belt that make Obama look as if his are nothing when we know that’s in no size shape or form the case. You insult a helluva lot of people who deserve your respect for their service to our country via their time in the senate, congress, state and local when you choose to suggest that the person who they support lacks what it takes just because you’re rooting for someone else. I don’t and won’t ever not honor McCain’s sacrifices just because I have every reason to believe he isn’t right for the job he seeks,.

    God not only bless her son but Biden’s too who’s also heading off Oct 3 to serve as well as McCain’s sons.

    Wow, thats the best McCain can do?
    A former beauty queen. with almost no government experience to speak of.

    She went into office December 2007–people that was eight months ago. and now this old as dirt man thinks that by putting in a barbie doll hes goona fool hilary clinton voters to vote for her.
    He must really think Hilary clinton voters are total idiots that will vote for naything with a skirt.

    What a moronic move on his part. I can see it now.. his poor wife going into jealous tantrums..after all.. did she not once steal her hubby away from his former wife in her youthful days.

    This lady whover she is is nothing more than a token pawn…
    Ladies voters are much smarter than Mcain gives them credit for.

    We dont vote based on sexism we vote on experience and Hilary had plenty of it.. This women has nothing..
    Why not pick condoleeza Rice?

    amanda Says:

    I love the people who say she has more experience.18months as Govenor and before that mayor of a town with 8000 people. yes she is way more experienced. And if you vote for McCAin just because he chose a woman and you are still pissed about Hilary then you deserve to have your right to choice taken away…and believe they will take away your rights to choose. smart.

    Palin is going to kick some butt. She is one tough cookie. She hates corruption. McCain made a good choice. This is real change. Palin was Mayor and she is now the Governor of Alaska. She has more executive experience than Obama. McCain did something Obama didn’t have the guts to do.

    AC Says:

    She is a hottie. Have you seen her legs. She is better looking then all of them, including their wives. Democrats have the little man complex. I am rich and approve of his selection. Poor people unite and vote democrats again. There is a reason why you are poor and the middle class.

    ATHENA Says:

    So just because she is female you are going to vote for her? That’s ridiculous I DID NOT vote for Hillary because she was a female I voted for her because of the things she stood for. Governor Palin is just being used by HER OWN party which I find kind of funny and sadly (even though I am a woman) there are going to be woman that will vote for her just because she is in fact a female. If McCain wanted to he could easily kick her off after the election. You Hillary supporters are deciding to vote for this woman and have you forgotten the glorious and triumphant speeches in support of Obama given by her and her husband???? You have got to be kidding me!

    lily Says:

    Good choice. Obama made a mistake by not choosing Hillary as VP. I am very disappointed with Hillary for supporting Obama.She knows that Obama is very inexprienced and yet she choice the party than the good of the country. Go McCain.

    Davey Says:


    she hates corruption? Umm but she’s being investigated for abusing her power. How does that work?

    As a Hilary supporter, I was going to sit out come November, but now I might just vote. Palin is going to break that glass ceiling.

    mccain’s choice is one smart woman…she spoke with intelligance and class…no lies, honest truth…there is sooooooooo much back and forth lying in politicians…lots of promises they cannot possibly achieve.some don’t even tell HOW they will solve all the things they promise….they bash each other then claim to support those they bashed…crazy, mixed up society…

    Davey Says:

    I expected more. You’ll vote for McCain because he chose a woman VP. The issues don’t matter. The fact that she’s pro-life doesn’t matter. The fact that she doesn’t believe in the same things as H. Clinton doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is that she’s a woman. Wow. Let’s vote on issues not gender.

    # 39 too dumb for words @ 08/29/2008 at 3:21 pm

    Here here well said. Why not pick Rice? This choice reeks of a strategist who thinks people are too dumb to vote for what is right, sexism, racism, any other isms you want to make.

    Someone in another thread even made the argurment that one of her accomplishment is that she also chose to have a disabled child. Do you see the irony?

    Give me a break “barbie” girl is toast. What experience? Wait until the DEM sink the General HC on her?
