McCain has picked Alaska governor Sarah Palin as his running mate. I had a feeling he was going to pick a woman but I had no idea it would be the governor of Alaska. To be honest, five minutes ago I didn’t know the governor of Alaska is a woman.
I suppose Palin is qualified in at least one area. One of the main functions of the vice president is to serve as the an object of riducule. (Dan Quayle, Dick Cheney) Just a month ago Palin said that she doesn’t even know what the VP does. Yep. sounds like she’s qualified.
I worry a little that some of those disappointed Hillary supporters will start swooning over the possibility of the “the first woman Vice President”. And I worry about the guys a little bit too. Being a woman myself, I’m probably not the best judge of such things but it seems to me that she’s at least fairly attractive – unusually attractive for someone who’s running for Vice President. Would some guys vote for McCain just because his running mate is nice to look at? Wouldn’t surprise me.
I can only think of two things to say about this developement: 1. Please don’t fall for it! and 2. Let’s start making fun of her now.
