McCain should pick Sarah Palin, governor of Alaska for VP

This post was published on Aug 25, 2008 

There is talk that Sen. John McCain will take more air out of the Democrat Convention by announcing his VP on Thursday. Good plan. Now, make it Sarah Palin and he will get some of Hillary’s disenfranchised voters. Palin has it all, good looks right out of central casting, intelligent speaker, family values and governor of Alaska.

She has positive energy and wit. She will be able to out debate Biden and show that the Republicans trust a women for high office.


Drill here, drill now!

  1. Despite the Dems and the allied main stream media’s desperation to see Romney as McCain’s Veep, Mitt is clearly out, with (1) Obama doubling down on the class warfare theme (McCain’s 7 houses) and (2) McCain doubling down with ads showing the hypocrisy of Biden attacking Obama in the primaries — Romney did way more than that contra McCain.

    This leaves only Govs Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. Pro-abortion Ridge and Dem-Lieberman were never real considerations, despite relentless media goading. Pawlenty’s lackluster TV performances, coupled with Palin pizzazz, the primacy of oil drilling and the ticked off women/Hillary voters, does now portend a McCain/Palin checkmate on the Dems. This is so albeit the Dems and liberal media dare not mention Palin’s name, that is, everyone but…..

    And if there’s any question as to Palin being uniquely positioned and able to more than nullify Biden in debate, see the excellent discussion at

    Team McCain, well done!!!

  2. VEEP Debates Q&A

    QUESTION: How will Sarah Palin do in a debate with Joe Biden?

    ANSWER: How many men watching will be aware that Biden is in the room?

  3. Alaska magazine named 44-year-old Palin “America’s Hottest Governor.”

    Quote: “OMG Sarah Palin continues to be the hottest governor ever.” –

    McCain and Sarah Palin would be the winning ticket.

  4. I have been on the fence leaning towards using the write in vote option come November. However, if McCain pick Palin for VP, I will vote the McCain-Palin Ticket.

    I watched several interviews with Palin on YouTube. She is an amazing person who gives straight answers and makes solid eye contact. Speaking of eyes, she has the spark of enthusiasm in hers.

    Sarah Palin knew at 9 weeks gestation that her 5th child had down syndrome. There was never a question for her or her husband. She carried and gave birth to her beautiful baby boy. That’s real Pro-Life in action.

    Palin is from common roots. Her parents are teachers, her husband a commercial fisherman, her son a U.S. Army foot soldier, and she is a lifelong member of the NRA. That appeals to the average, hard working American.

    She stood up to the party elite and Sen. Stephens over his earmark for the “bridge to nowhere”. She will bring that strength and integrity to the ticket as VP.

    There are millions of disaffected Cinton followers, mostly women, who are looking for an option. Palin will draw millions of those voters. And she is really Catholic, as opposed to Biden’s pro-choice catholic stand. She will draw Catholics looking for a viable option.

    Palin represents the future of Republicans and conservatives. She wears that mantle well.

    Sadly, McCain sounds a lot like Claude Raines in Casablanca “Round up the usual suspects”.

    Hopefully McCain will look beyond the usual suspects and make the smart choise – Sarah Palin.

  5. This just in from Universal Weather… a charter jet has completed a round trip from Ohio to Alaska, with Sarah Palin and her family on board.

    Palin’s Vegas odds at VP have just shot up.

  6. Byline: Nat Hentoff, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

    Amid the speculation regarding John McCain’s choice to complete his presidential ticket, I offer my unsolicited suggestion for his vice president: the first woman – and youngest – governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, who is an unstereotypical and effective Republican.

    During her first year in office, as reported by the Associated Press on May 10, she “distanced herself from the old guard, powerful members of the state GOP (and) stood up to the oil interests that hold great power in Alaska, and with bipartisan support in the statehouse, she won a tax increase on the oil companies’ profits.” Last December, this mother of four …

  8. I’ve been waiting for McCain to make a bold move and throw some serious excitement into this race and by picking Sarah Palin he will do just that. I think she would make an excellent choice. To those who say she has no experience….neither does Obama. At least Palin has executive experience. Obama himself said a few short years ago that he didn’t have th experience to run on a national ticket.

  9. As an independent, the Palin pick only proves one thing. Neither Obama nor McCain have the credentials to be president and their VP picks justify that. McCain is old, out of touch, and hasn’t been a “maverick” since the 90’s (during the Clinton years) and Obama is young, smart and inexperienced. By themselves, they don’t do much for their arguments to be president but with their respective picks they offset the arguments against them, somewhat.
    Palin is clearly a shot at the disenfranchised Hillary voters and a lame one at that. Only two years as governor and an ex beauty pageant contestant…C’mon! Now the republicans look like the democrats but with a much better looking VP (in appearance only.)
    I have to say, the Obama/Biden ticket looks better and better all the time.

  10. B. Real.

    You can’t fool us. You know McCain picked a perfect candidate. Sarah Palin is more qualified than Obama to be president, and wait till she gets four years of experience as VP.

  11. What relevance do her looks have on her ability to govern?!!! After everything that was said about Hillary, I’m exhausted just thinking about the pundits comments regarding Palin. Not to mention, what is this debate on qualifications? How is she more/less qualified than the other candidates? These comments make no sense and have no real basis or validity. It’s one thing to be enthusiastic about your candidate and another to make biased statements as though they were somehow fact based. You can’t compare their experience. It is of a completely different nature.

  12. Sarah Palin’s experience is much more involved than a Jr. Senator’s 150 days of fact free liberal buzz word drivel at the Senate.

    Now, the results are in from Zogby. McCain/Palin erased any minor bump gained by the $100 million DNC convention. The latest nationwide survey, begun Friday afternoon after the McCain announcement of Palin as running mate and completed mid-afternoon today, shows McCain/Palin at 47%, compared to 45% support for Obama/Biden.

  13. Still think Palin was a good pick?

    My opinion is she was the weak link. In any other country people with college education are more likely to vote for right wing parties because they are higher earners who want to pay less taxes. They can’t be taken for granted though and this pick was doing that.

  14. Richard,
    I think that the rants against Palin are not making a dent. Now we know that the ATF suspect arson is the cause of Palin’s church fire causing $1 million in damage and had put the lives of several people at risk. Do you think those were college educated, open minded arsonists?

  15. Good looks? You think looks are important for someone who is a heartbeat away from the presidency? How about academic achievement, foreign policy experience, the ability to understand and articulate complex ideas, and ordinary intellectual capacity. Palin has none of these abilities and never will. Her fan-base isn’t large enough to win a local election, much a national election. Anybody who doesn’t know the difference between Coach John Wooden and John Wooden-Legs, and who thinks that mankind walked alongside living dinosaurs isn’t qualified to be a hall monitor, much less President of the United States.
