Veep Veep!!

Ok, I haven't mused over political stuff in awhile, but I thought I would mention that McCain has mentioned he is putting together a list of potential candidates for Vice President. This selection process has my interest, because there are so many schools of thought on who and why McCain should select. What does he need? I certainly don't feel that he needs to draw in moderates or jaded democrats --- he has those by the bucketfull. But what about the rest of us? I like to think he is going to pick someone ultraconservative to make peace with those of us who were championing nearly ANYONE else but McCain during the last year. I loved Duncan Hunter, Tom Tancredo, and I adored Fred Thompson. I was a bit indignant after Fred dropped out - I refused to take my "I'm with Fred" sticker down for several weeks. Anyway, even though there were plenty of wonderful candidates in the last year running for the republican nomination, there is one particular individual who was not running who I have my eyeballs on. Sarah Palin, the Governor of Alaska. This lady is one kickass conservative who is photogenic to boot.

Anyway, I'm not sure who John McCain is going to select as his running mate - but he definitely has my interest at the moment.


  1. Oh Fred...we hardly knew ye. So with you on this was painful when he dropped out. Sigh...

    And I'm liking your suggestion of Sarah Palin as McCain's running mate. Great idea! Now let's see if we can convince John of this. As if I hold his ear or anything.

  2. Ladies, you will love Sarah Palin. She won my heart when she let the Govenor's Chef go when she took office and saved Alaska over $40,000. She said she wanted to be the one cooking for her family. No one will ever call her an elitist.

    Check out the "Draft Sarah Palin for Vice President" web site at as it has a lot of good links and blogs.

    I also encourage you to watch her on YouTube where 22 govenors filmed a greeting to the troops. Other govenors droned on. Not Sarah -- she sparkled. I believe she is the only govenor who also has a child in the military. Her 18 year old son recently joined the army and will eventually be deployed to Iraq.

    I am an independent who leans toward the right, but I don't want to see two white guys in the White House. No more same old, same old.

    Hey John! BREAK THE MOLD -- Choose Sarah Palin for VP.
