Senator McCain has picked 44-year-old Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska, as his running mate.
UPDATE: Watching the Palin introduction. The young, attractive Palin looks like her running mate's daughter. :-) She does need a voice coach though. That high pitch is...disturbing.
The governor's eldest is in the Army. With McCain's sons being in the military also, one wonders which cudgel the anti-warriors will use now that the "Chickenhawk" weapon is off of the table.
Bravo to McCain for so quickly wresting attention away from his opponent.
UPDATE: Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY):
Certainly the choice of Palin puts to rest any argument about inexperience on the Democratic team and while Palin is a fine person, her lack of experience makes the thought of her assuming the presidency troubling.Tee hee! Oh, the Democrats are scared. And anyone who has never been the head of an organization (a group of people) existing to met an objective is inexperienced in the executive arena. That makes Senator Biden the most inexperienced person of the four.
UPDATE: The Obama Campaign stepping on its...tongue again:
Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency.How dare the McCain Campaign pick one of those Bitter Clingers!

UPDATE: Neither Palin nor McCain are lawyers. Hmmm.
