I don’t have too much time right now… but it appears that Sen. McCain has selected Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to be his running mate.
This, in particular, caught my eye:
Governor Palin is a tough executive who has demonstrated during her time in office that she is ready to be president.
I guess this means that 10 years of Mayorship of a very small town (Wasilla, AK: Pop: ~5,500) and 2 years as governor trumps 7 years in a (large) state Senate and 4 years in the US Senate.
Although, there was this bit, too:
As the head of Alaska’s National Guard and as the mother of a soldier herself, Governor Palin understands what it takes to lead our nation
Which, I guess outweighs being essentially raised by a veteran…
