How Obvious Can They Be?!

McCain chose Alaska governor, Sarah Palin as his VP running mate. I hope I'm not the only one that sees the obvious similarities to what went on this past week in Denver. (e.g., picking a woman during the week that the women's suffrage anniversary occurs, and being "historical," and the fact that she is a union member and has "working class" roots) Some of her views really worry me. Things like being anti-abortion, pro-gun, anti-gay rights, and anti-environment (in favor of drilling in ANWR). Talk about a "hail-mary" tactic (or should I say "hail-sarah"). One good thing is that the GOP can't criticize Obama's lack of experience anymore; Palin is much less experienced. She's only been governor for less than two years and before that she was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska (pop. about 9000). Before that she was a council woman and a served as head of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. I sure hope that disappointed Hilary supporters aren't fooled by this move, because, except for her gender, she sure ain't anything like Ms. Clinton.
