When I heard the news about John McCain's Vice Presidential choice today, I really wanted to do a backflip-he hit a Grand Slam. She's pro-life, has five children, and she came to power as Governor of Alaska on a platform of tough ethics reform proposals. Her political career went into overdrive when she-a Republican appointee to the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission-led an ethics investigation into the activities of the State Republican Chairman, who was said to have had ties too close to the oil industry to serve on the Commission.

That investigation forced Alaska GOP Chair Randy Reudrich to resign from that body, and it made Sarah Palin a party outsider. She became a respected moral compass in the State's politics-and won the Republican nomination for Governor.

Sarah Palin certainly fits John McCain's image as the maverick who is unafraid to challenge party authority or orthodoxy, but her strong pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and low-tax credentials make her a darling for conservatives, and many of those seem energized today:

"Sarah Palin is a pleasant surprise for those of us who had hoped that Senator McCain would pick a principled and authentic conservative pro-life leader," former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said.
We know that Sarah Palin is the real deal, and that is why so many of us are thrilled with this choice. As John McCain said this morning, here is a woman who, because of her interest in and her concern for her community, went from being the PTA president, to being a small-town mayor, to running for Lieutenant Governor, to becoming Governor of Alaska. Now the mother of five children will, with the help of God, become the Vice President of the United States.

In the weeks ahead, many will ask if she is experienced enough and they will decry her lack of time in office-the same people who would make a Daley Machine politician and one-term Senator with no significant legislative accomplishments our 44th President. While Barack Obama was compiling the most liberal voting record in the Senate, Sarah Palin was leading a crusade for ethics in government in her home State, and she knows that protecting the life of the unborn isn't above her pay grade.

It will be asked in the days ahead if Sarah Palin can serve as President of the United States.

Let us paraphrase our opponent: YES SHE CAN!

Now I know your smokin' wacky tobaccie! Gov. Pallin is pure pander! Pander to woman (who aren't going to buy it) and pander to the right-wing bubba crowd (who are becoming less and less important).
As the race goes into the home strecth Gov. Pallin's lack of, re4ally anything substantial ( substantial outside of the Alaska bubble), is going ot be made abundtly clear.
McCain threw away everything he had; but that's Ok because from the start he was all you had.

David, I couldn't agree with you more with regard to Sarah Palin's accomplishments. She represents exactly what is needed throughout the nation.

I myself, am currently running for office in an effort to unseat a 34 year incumbent - our current Tennessee House Speaker. My primary message is that concerned citizens such as Sarah Palin must step up and challenge those elected representatives who are self-serving and will not stand against those who seek to destroy our freedoms.

The most critical aspect of the next administration will be the Supreme Court appointees. The damage done to the foundation of this nation, as you well know, is a direct result of renegade judges.

I believe John McCain and Sarah Palin are an unbeatable team!
