The Jaker

Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Sarah Palin
Well, I think McCain made a very shrewd political choice. A suburban, telegenic, executive, working mom, with the ability to fire up the conservative base.

Obama chose the person he felt would best help him govern once in office, but McCain, clearly concerned about November and not what happens afterward, chose the person that gives him a better chance to win, in the process putting someone who 2 years ago was an oil company regulator and former mayor of a town of 7,000 a heartbeat away from running the free world.

One fun fact, here's what Palin said earlier this year about the vice presidency:
Palin replied: “[A]s for that V.P. talk all the time, I’ll tell you, I
still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it
exactly that the V.P. does every day? I’m used to being very productive and
working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that V.P .slot
would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things
that we’re trying to accomplish up here for the rest of the U.S., before I can
even start addressing that question.”
