Sarah Palin and the McCain / McMILF 2008 Ticket

It’s official.  John McCain’s taste in beautiful women is impeccable.

John McCain has chosen MILF Sarah Palin to share the GOP ticket.


A neo-con, short-term governor of Alaska, who I think appeared in ZZ Top’s “Legs” video in the 80s.  I didn’t think it made sense until I dug in about the voting records of other possible Rep women: the incredibly capable Elizabeth Dole would seem a good, seasoned choice, but being just as old as McCain, might not instill us with much confidence.  Lisa Murkowski, also GOP and Alaskan, has served on committees for energy, parks, education, and foreign relations and is candid about her eagerness to drill for oil, but she’s too moderate on abortion.  Ditto Kay Hutchison on abortion.  Ditto Susan Collins on abortion.  Olympia Snowe reaches across the aisle too much, working with Dems to minimize Bush’s tax cuts, and disagreeing here and there about Iraq.  Elizabeth Joyce is too busy answering hate mail and being courted for her vote.  So that leaves right-wing MILF, Sarah Palin.

I’m not sure when the GOP became the Dukes of Hazzard, but nonetheless, here’s the nutshell read on the schizophrenic nature of this NRA gun-toting beauty queen and VP candidate.

She has been called “Barracuda Sarah” since her high school basketball days, and got through college by taking second place in the Miss Alaska Beauty Pageant, where the “barracuda” ironically won the title of Miss Congeniality.  If only McCain had chosen her a few weeks earlier, both she and Cindy could have competed for the Miss Buffalo Chip title.

The Anchorage Daily News covered her fashion shoot for Vogue last year.  PETA friends will love this:

“At first they had me in a bunch of furs,” she said. “Yeah, I have furs on my wall, but I don’t wear furs (except for in this photo to the right). I had to show them my bunny boots and my North Face clothing.”

She claims to be independent of the influence of big oil, even though her husband works for oil giant, BP.  She says she’s pro-gay, but is staunchly anti-same-sex marriage.  She is a whistleblower on ethics violations of her fellow Republicans (which should keep her busy), even though she is the subject of ethics investigations that make Anchorage sound like Peyton Place:

From Wikipedia:

On July 11, 2008, Governor Palin dismissed Walter Monegan as Commissioner of Public Safety and instead offered him a position as executive director of the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, which he subsequently turned down.[41][42] Monegan alleged shortly after his dismissal that it may have been partly due to his reluctance to fire an Alaska State Trooper, Mike Wooten, who had been involved in a divorce and child custody battle with Palin’s sister, Molly McCann.[43] In 2006, before Palin was governor, Wooten was briefly suspended for ten days for threatening to kill McCann’s (and Palin’s) father, tasering his 11-year-old stepson (at the stepson’s request), and violating game laws. After a union protest, the suspension was reduced to five days.[44]

And when interviewed on CNBC about her ongoing ethics investigation, she said that she was unsure about what a Vice President does every day.[52]

When interviewed in The National Post, she said:

Financial Post: What is it like to be named as a VP prospect?

Ms. Palin: It kind of cracks me up. It is so far out of the realm of possibility and reality.

FP: How so?

Ms. Palin: Because I’m a hockey mom from Alaska. And I have a heck of a lot on my plate up here with a very full and fulfilling job as governor (of Alaska, the fourth least populous state, with about as many people as Austin, TX).

FP: If you were asked would you say no?

Ms. Palin: Again, because it is so far out of that realm of possibilities, I don’t spend time thinking about it, to tell you the truth. And I’m very excited for whomever it is to be tapped soon so that I get to concentrate just on what we’re doing today in Alaska.

Yeah, Sarah, it kind of cracks us up too.

Ladies, don’t be gulled by such obvious, insulting pandering.  Sarah Palin may be  a successful politician and Governor, but she is no Hillary Clinton.  I want a woman in the white house as much as you do, but not just any woman… the right woman.  One thing’s certain: pageants everywhere will be working this to death.

    Don’t you mean you want the “best” woman in the white house, because this one is already as far to the “right” as it gets. And that’s something we don’t need. Let’s hope those women voters on the fence are smarter than the Republicans think. But then there are those idiots like Elizabeth Joyce…

    John, John, John. Why don’t you simply slap the face of every woman you see? I suggest that most women and men who wanted to see Hilary in The White House did not want her there only because she is a woman. That is just a teensy bit shallow. I am guessing that those of us who wanted Hilary for prez think that she has most, if not ALL, of the right…(dare I say it?)politcal views. We already know that she doesn’t break and that she doesn’t take everything “personally”. We also know that she has the endurance and fortitude to persevere. Sarah, you are cute, young and energetic and I love your beautiful state. But even with your membership in the NRA, do you know what to do, who to call and who to trust when terrorists rear their nasty heads and plant a fucking big one in The Heartland? I mean, if it should come down to you…and it very well could. That’s okay; I don’t think that Johnny knows either; he may very well have inherited GW’s iPhone call list. I DO believe that Obama and Biden already have a “to-do” list and have the right names on their speed-dials. One thing that I have learned in my 62 years is that sometimes declining is the best thing for everyone…before you really embarrass yourself or take out an innocent or two.
