McCain picks his running mate. His hot, smart running mate!

This morning, Republican Presidential candidate John McCain gave himself a 72nd birthday present and selected first-term Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (say "PAY-lin") as his vice-presidential running mate. I think that was a good choice because she is a reformer, pro-small government, a solid conservative, and a former beauty queen(!) who has been a force to be reckoned with in Alaskan politics since she was elected Governer in 2006. She does lack international experience, but I think she will be a great contrast to career politician Joe Biden, Barack Obama's pick for VP.

This is going to be an interesting couple of months. Just 66 days 'til election day.

I find it completely ironic that Palin touts the (delusional) abstinence-until-married "sex-ed", yet her teenage daughter is knocked up (with no husband, mind you)...

Doesn't exactly work, does it Sarah??

Yeah, I disagree with abstinence-only sex-ed. It's a nice thought, but totally unrealistic. But it's not her fault that her daughter screwed up. All the sex-ed in the world doesn't keep teenagers from doing stupid things. Believe you me!

@ Matt... I just don't get how any intelligent grown-up, Repub or Dem, can think its realistic. And true, she can't monitor daughter 24-7. But informed, get-as-much-info-about-stuff sex-ed is more realistic then the abstinence stuff. Knowledge is power, ya know?
