Wow, what a pick!

|
I have to tip my hat to McCain for getting Sarah Palin on board. After seeing her interview a few times on TV last month, I didn't think she was interested, and I'd wager that she'll provide a real boost -- not that it'll matter (I think Obama's a lock). A Palin in 2012 ticket would be a real hoot!

A desperate act from a desperate candidate. As much and I, and McCain, don't like Mr. Mormon, I think he would have been a stronger choice. Once the dust settles and she is picked apart, I think he may regret the choice.

I think I saw an article saying is under under investigation for corruption. Need to verify...

I think it's a GREAT pick! As a conservative and, until recently, a GOP activist, I've been unhappy with McCain as the GOP nominee. Picking Palin (who I've been aware of for some time) is something that will finally have me proudly vote for McCain. I can't say many other potential VPs would have had a similar effect. McCain has found a way to energize the GOP base. It's a Hail Mary play that might just work.

I don't think Palin will be easy to 'pick apart' nor is there anything to the legislative investigation against her (that was just a ploy by lefties who resent her work trying to clean-up their cronyism).

We'll see in about 10 weeks.

I agree that it is a great pick, and also a desperate one. Romney would have been a safer choice that would lead to inevitable defeat. Here, McCain has a chance, but it's Obama's race to lose. The fact that Obama chose to play defense in his convention speech makes me think that he's savvy enough to avoid major errors.
Buy your battle rifles now, while you still can!

I'll very likely be voting GOP for the first time since '88.

I've seen that sentiment expressed all over the 'net by frustrated Libertarians and Constitution Party types.

The GOP VP has a stronger libertarian record than the Libertarian presidential candidate. If I've gotta suffer through a couple years of McCain to get to President Paling, well, so be it.

Interesting pick, if a bit hypocritical...
