Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was picked by John McCain as his VP running mate.  I suggested back on the 19th that she would be his pick.  Cool to be right.  I think that Palin is a good choice for several reasons:

  • She is a true conservative both fiscally and socially.  She is pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment, pro-choice on education, pro-free market, and pro-drilling along with the other alternatives on energy.
  • Not only is she pro-life, she has put those beliefs into practice.  When her unborn fifth child was diagnosed with Downs Syndrome, abortion wasn’t an option – even though 80% of those babies are victims of abortion.
  • She has executive experience: both running a city and running a state.
  • She has a record of fighting corruption in government.
  • She is a good pick to balance McCain on domestic issues.
  • While I don’t want to play identity politics – the fact that she is young and a woman is great not only in balancing the ticket, but it also helps break beyond the GOP stereotype of being a party for old white men (which is blatantly false anyway, but this proves it).
  • She’s not an eastern elitist – being a University of Idaho graduate and outdoors person will connect with people.
  • She’s a mother of five can relate with mothers.  Her oldest son volunteered for the Army and is likely being sent to Iraq.
Her first speech as the Vice Presidential candidate:

  1. I didn’t realize Idaho was the Vandals.

    Have you caught how modern feminists are coming out against her? NOW already made a statement that I’ve read. “McCain picked a woman, but she’s not in favor of women’s rights.” Crazy.

    She’s a classic feminist – equality, not sameness. She just doesn’t hate men, so they hate her.

  5. @Kansas Bob – I don’t see how Obama could possibly come at her on expereince. Is she ready to be President right at this very moment? I think she could rise to the occassion. She has some learning to do no doubt. I see a mentor-mentee relationship going, as what you have on the Democrat ticket. The only difference is that GOP mentee isn’t at the top of the ticket. Also she’s got more executive experience than them all combined.

    @KT Cat – You are welcome – MSNBC has it uninterrupted and it is better quality, but not able to embed their videos here yet.

    @Casey – mine too.

  9. Her speech was quite impressive. I was equally impressed by McCain’s Booktalk today on CSPAN about his book on character (it was a re-run I believe from the Spring). Even though I don’t see myself voting for him in November, I respect McCain just a little bit more for his personal ethics and integrity.
