There is a quite a buzz about John McCain’s selection as a running mate in the next presidential election. When Hilary dropped out of the race and let Barack Obama take the Democratic nomination, everyone assumed women were out of the race, at least this time around. It was not to be.

Within hours of Obama’s stirring acceptance speech, the Republicans (who generally oppose the Democrats, of course) dropped a bomb. John McCain would have a woman as his vice presidential candidate.

Sarah Palin

In the world of politics, it doesn’t get much more real that Sarah Palin. She’s the pick for the Republican vice president and before you tune out completely with the thought of politics, hear what this woman brings to the table.

Sarah Palin was a beauty queen. She earned a bit of money back in her heyday to pay for some college. With her updo and funky glasses, she’s still a very attractive woman.

Sarah Palin shoots guns. A regular tough girl, Sarah Palin knows how to shoot and does it well. She can even handle an M-16.

Sarah Palin did drugs. Ms. Palin readily admits that she smoked marijuana. Of course, when she did it, she was doing it legally. She lived in Alaska and pot was once legal there.

Sarah Palin has five children. Her oldest is almost twenty and her youngest is only four months of age. Not only is he still a baby, he was born with Downs Syndrome. This is a disability that would make some mothers abort the pregnancy, but not Mrs. Palin – she is an avid supporter of all births and is against abortion.

Sarah Palin’s going to be a grandmother. If you read about her children above, you’ll notice that they are all teenagers or children. That means her teenage daughter, aged seventeen, is going to make the possible future-vice president a grandmother. (No, she’s not married – yet.)

Sarah Palin beat a corrupt system to become governor of Alaska and has cleared out as much corruption in the government as she can find. She’s also a member of the PTA at her children’s schools.

The Future of America?

There are strong reactions to Palin. Some are eager to see her on the ticket and suddenly much more interested in the campaigns and election. After all, this is a woman who could be almost any mother today. Her daughter is pregnant as a teenager, her son will likely need special care his whole life, yet she plows ahead with her family behind her for support quietly doing what needs to be done.

Others are more skeptical of Palin. She might not be the best candidate for the job, and many suspect she was chosen to try and woo over Hillary supporters (as if they couldn’t tell one woman from another.) This group is especially nervous as Senator McCain is already 72 years of age to Palin’s 44. Should McCain not be able to stay president during his term (if he wins, of course), Palin would take over becoming the first woman president.

Only one thing is certain – this election just got a whole lot more interesting.

Sorry to double post, but I just visited the link KrazyWolfy posted and it very nearly reduced me to tears. Palin supports killing mother bears with cubs. That is cruel beyond comparison. She likes the idea of chasing wolves and bears to exhaustion from helicopters and then killing them. In this article, you call her a regular tough girl, and it seems to be you are praising her for her experience with guns. Her support in barbaric sports just as this sickens me. I want to throw up.

Sarah Palin? Lots of people think she's a feminist. She's anti-abortion. And yet, she seems to love the sport of going out and bashing baby seals to death.

My opinion on that is I don't see much difference between abortion and seal-clubbing except that foetuses are lumps of cells that feel no paini and baby seals are possibly the cutest anumals on Earth, endangered, and can feel a lot of pain. Isn't seal-clubbing seal abortion? (Animals are people too. And I'm pro-choice all the way. Anti-abortion? Then don't have one.)

Sarah Palin wants to legalise guns. She likes shooting moose. She thought Africa was a country, rather than a continent. I lothe and detest her. I cannot stress how much more faith I have in America now that they voted in Barak Obama. It was the right choice.

All in all, Sarah Palin: Amynetta says oh hell no. (Meant to be said in the voice of the violence against women ad, but unless you live in Australia you wouldn't know. lol.)

If I were old enough to vote, I wouldn't vote for chromosomes--I'd vote for issues. Her views are clearly anti-science (anti-stem cells, procreationism, etc.) BTW, check out this link from Defenders of Wildlife. http://www.defendersactionfund.org/newsr oom/sarah_palin.html

I'm not American, but if she becomes vice pres. (or pres.)...grrrr...

McCain's only trying to get Hillary supporters to support him. Case closed.

thank you for clarifying that, evily_sweet. We were burning to know wether or not you were a monkey. (lol)

_lithia_

p.s.-i don't know who i would vote for.... but i don't think people should vote for someone based on their color or sex. people need to make informed decisions about the candidates themselves, not what they look like.

To young?? Wtf, she's a little older or younger than Obama and has way more experience.

It's not sexist. She's not sexist. You people are blindsighted to the fact that Clinton also pretty much told people to vote for her because she's a woman. It Palin sexist, I'm a monkey... which I'm not.

I love Palin. She's a great woman who's actually lived in real America. If I was old enough to vote, I'd vote for McCain. Considering I don't like Obama. But next time around, I'll be able to vote. ^-^

McCain should win.

She's so sexist! I hate that she suggests that all women should vote for her b/c she's a woman. That's sexist b/c it's wrong to believe that all women would ote for a woman. :/

i agree with you silent wolf about ehr dughter marying the baby's dad beign teh right thing. in a eprfect world sure great but thsi world is far from that.

Other than that i support her 100% i lsitend to aprt of ehr acpetance speecha dn she was very open and straightforward and easyto understand. she dsunt talk down to make people feel smart nor dus she use big words to make herself look smarter. she sounds very inteligent. I admire her raisng a familly while being involved in politics. that can be dificult especially with sch a large familly. 5 kids anda grandbaby on the way. I supported hilary over obama but if hillary was still in the race i think i would be suporting sara palin over hillary.

I'm a democrat personally, and really I have nothing against Palin - she's a hardworking mother. But I don't understand why McCain chose her, a governor in a state somewhat cut off from the U.S., as vice president when he said that Obama had no experience.

Honestly, if McCain were to win and then die, I wouldn't want her as our president.

I don't like her. Sure I'm not American. So what? I can have an opinion.

Handling guns is suddenly a 'tough girl' thing and it's okay? No. Not cool.

It's so obvious McCain did that just to get Hillary voters. I think it's a bit sexist he thinks that women are suddenly going to be that stupid and vote for him. *rolls eyes*
