I, like many have been following the rumors, on top of rumors floating around the internet and media last night and this morning speculating who will be McCain’s pick… (I really need some sleep so I apologize if this is a little hard to read! LOL)
It would appear that Romney is OUT. Likewise, Pawlenty has said he is NOT McCain’s pick…
Who’s creating all the buzz this morning? Alaska Governor Sarah Heath “Barracuda” Palin, that’s who! And, if this turn out to be an accurate “guess”, then this election might already be over.
As it is McCain has effectively pushed the news of Obama’s acceptance speech off the radar less than 12 hours after he finished it! A masterful stroke of political genius by McCain’s campaign. As for the rumors? The media is going NUTS trying to figure this out. They have tried to crack McCain’s campaign, but have been unsuccessful thus far… I can’t even imagine the stress Obama’s strategists are going through at the moment – months of planning could be dashed within a matter of hours.
After spending quite some time last night reading about Governor Palin, I cannot express how happy I will be if indeed McCain has chosen her. I was incredibly impressed. For a quick review of Gov. Palin’s bio and such, please see the following profile on Wikipedia: Sarah Heath Palin.
Here’s what I wrote a little while ago on one of my favorite Conservative Message Boards about her:
An 80-90% approval rating??? How much better can you get? Fighting against corruption in her OWN PARTY – right on! A beautiful woman, a loving mother. A woman who knows how to work hard (was a commercial fisherman with her husband in ALASKA no less!!!), can hunt, fish and last, but definitely not least is a VERY intelligent, strong, take no bull, CONSERVATIVE woman!
I’m all for Palin! Praying and hoping here that McCain has chosen her!
(I wonder if they’ll play Barracuda at the convention if it’s her? That was the nickname her teammates gave her back in HS on their championship Basketball team! LOL Sounds like someone you’d LOVE to have in your corner!)
MORE TO COME VERY SOON!!!
PS — More and more reports are coming in that seem to confirm this pick for McCain… Of course, nothing is for sure until she steps out on that stage!
