Our Girl

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin

This is no pushover. She knows the business end of a gun and how to shoot it (video). Her nickname on the state campionship women's basketball team was "Barracuda." She is a hunter, pilot and lifetime member of the NRA.

Palin studied journalism and political science at the University of Idaho and graduated in 1987. She eloped with her high school boyfriend, Todd Palin, in 1988 to save money on an expensive wedding. She helped out in her husband’s family commercial fishing business and appeared occasionally as a television sportscaster.

Palin won a seat on the Wasilla City Council in 1992 as a new face and a new voice, and by opposing tax increases. Four years later she was elected mayor at 32 by knocking off a three-term incumbent. At the end of her second term, party leaders encouraged her to enter the 2002 race for the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor. Against veteran legislators with far more experience, Palin finished second by fewer than 2,000 votes, making a name for herself in statewide politics. She was elected Alaska’s youngest and first woman governor in 2006.

McCain for all his egomaniacle tendancies played this one PERFECT. Like a Karl Rove plot until this morning no one was sure who the pick would be, and whether or not he was going to screw the base of his party.

Well he did good on both points, and added insult to injury to the Obamma campaigns scorning women voters by blowing off the Hidabeast. Add to that the masterfull stealing of any bumb Obamma might have gotten from the Messia Convention instead they are now franticly searching for the means to attack this woman without further splitting of the Democrat Base.

I tip my hat to the ole blow hard for masterfull play.
