Sarah Palin for VP!!!

Okay! I am going to be really honest. When I learned of the announcement that Sarah Palin would be John McCain's VP, I wanted to cry! I thought that Republicans had lost any chance we once had at keeping the presidency. However, after a bit of research, I must admit that I am quite impressed with her. First, she is the mom of five (Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper, and baby Trig). Her oldest son, Track, is in the military and will soon go to Iraq. Her youngest son, Trig, who is four months old, has downs (you should read the reports of her response to suggestions that she should abort). Second, she has been the governor of Alaska since December 2006, and she was previously the mayor of her hometown. (So yes, she does have more executive experience than Obama and Biden combined.) Third, she is a true conservative (anti-abortion, right to bear arms). Fourth, she has a plan for our oil crisis (dig in Alaska). Fifth, she is not scared to go against the grain (the press calls her a maverick, but I think she just has common sense - something that is missing in DC). Lastly, she is a former beauty queen and is known as the "hottest governor"! Honestly, there are countless points I could make about why she is an ideal choice; however, I do encourage you do to your own research and let me know what you think!
