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.

    Why? Because Hillary voters are all stupid pawns that will only vote for a woman, even if that woman goes against every single belief they hold dear? I don’t think so. Most liberal women will never vote for an anti-choice woman.

    Sarah Palin is an impressive woman. A great wife, mother, business woman, citizen government worker, mayor and governor. She is fantastic on the single biggest domestic issue facing America, oil.

    She is a reformer like McCain, works across party lines, hates government waste with a vengenance (when she became Governor she had them sell the governments private jet because she thought it was excessive and that she would fly commercial).

    She gave great deference to Hillary & Ferraro but added that with her being VP, women plan on shattering the glass ceiling once and for all.

    GO SARAH….McCain/Palin 08!!!

    McCain has a better chance to win with this VP. She is a woman with beauty, brain,charisma and integrity.

    So democrats argument is that the VP of one ticket has to have more foreign affairs experience then the the Presidential nominee of the other ticket also she has more executive experience then Obama and Biden combined and congresses approve rating is at 12% do we really believe electing two senators both with the sink of Washington will change anything there.

    Sorry but I just made up my mind. I wouldn’t vote for this woman EVER! She is Alaska’s worst nightmare. Her stance on protecting the environmenat in Alaska is horrible, can you imagine what she’ll do to this country? She think it’s ok to slaugher wolves and bears so her hunting buddies have more elk and moose to kill. McCain, I admire you and think you are a great person. BUT you’ve just lost a vote.

    Will vote republican for the first time, with picking Palin McCain proves that he is willing to shake up Washington and that the American people have someone who is not going to do what is safe but what needs to be done which is what we need now more then ever.

    what the hell are you saying any choice as long as it is a woman is good? The hell for the real issues of policies and causes and changes.

    In other word, this choice is just good enough. Is that what you are saying?

    You are an idiot…

    By the way I am a female.

    #56 stop pretending you were ever a Hillary supporter. What you are is a racist, sexist and an idiot.

    Obama said “new, fresh, change” yeah, right, he picked a oldest politician in Washington. Give me a break.

    ANNe Says:

    Can’t stop laughing all democrats have been talking about is that Palin has no foreign policy experience, I see, that was so important to democrats that they pick a community organizer who is a first term senator and for most of is time in the senate he has been running for the Presidency of the United States, how much more desperate can democrats get.

    I really wonder about some of you. What are you saying is McCain is synonimous with change in Washington. McCain and change…LOL.

    please ….

    Keeneko Says:

    There is no way that this inept-GOP-puppet with a ****** will reel in any Clinton supporters. This is an insult to women of any party. Women are not easily swayed because a woman is on the Presidential Ballot.

    What a joke, and what a DESPERATE move from McCain.

    I laughed when people called Joe Biden inexperienced and now this is just priceless. Gov. of Alaska? As one of the most traveled through states, I’m sure a hell of lot more people have been to DE than Alaska.

    Hell, Delaware may be small, but we’ve got more people than Alaska does!!!

    Have you heard her kids names? She’s insane, under investigation, and admitted to smoking pot!!

    It’s sad McCain picked her b/c he wants Hillary’s voters.

    He’s stupid and while most Americans will see right through his desperate ploys, I have to admit there are a lot of stupid people here too. Like those of you who are voting for McCain just b/c he picked a female VP.

    Sarah Palin was a mayor first but is the current governor of Alaska.. which means she has exec experience.. I think her speech was very credible and yes they are trying to get in some Hillary voters.. well they got me!

    Davey Says:

    That’s exactly what I don’t get. How is Palin change? Just because she’s a woman? I thought we were looking for change in how the country was run not genders in the white house. Silly me for actually caring about the issues and not publicity stunts. November when I vote I will vote purely on what ground we can break and not whether I think they can do good for the country.

    I remember something I heard during a Jackie Robinson documentary. How while it was important for him to be the first black player it was even more important for him to be a great baseball player. If he failed he would set back any progress they had made. When we get a woman in the white house it should be because she’s worked to get there not as a stunt to pick up votes.

    why isn’t it mentioned that she is being investigated in Alaska for firing someone because of domestic relationship issues

    this choice is lmao!
    mccain + old age + desperation + dementia + cloudy irresponsible decision making concerning future of all americans + one heart beat away = PRESIDENT PALIN.

    if you are in a city right now
    beware of large falling elephants.

    I was wondering the same thing. Not to mention said someone she fired was her state trooper ex brother in law.

    LOL Says:

    LMAO! I am laughing my ass off. LOL. She’s a beauty queen. If oldCain was so confident, why did he have to go for a gimmick?

    The “so-called” Hilary supporters…YOU’RE NOT. It’s an insult to Hilary to compare her to this woman. Hilary is PRO women’s rights. This beauty queen is ANTI women’s rights. Hilary has something to say. She doesn’t. Hilary was offered the #2 slot–she said “no thanks” and chose the “Secretary of State” position instead.

    What a joke. I hope women aren’t stupid to vote for this chick simply because she’s a woman. She’s a misogynist.

    Obama’s “change’” is only in his words not action. McCain shows his “change” in action. Go McCain/Palin 2008.

    Here’s The Deal @ 08/29/2008 at 2:37 pm This move will sure pick up a few of the Hillary Clinton voters!

    You bet. Which is EXACTLY why he picked her.
    And I’m one of the Hillary voters who will be voting McCain. If Obama wanted “change,” he should have left the old school political set in his ways senator Biden off his ticket. Practice what you preach Obama, then may be others will listen to you. Big mistake not choosing Hillary & come November you will know how big.

    If Obama loses the election, it is because he makes the mistake of VP candidate.
