This is good news. According to Fox News and CNN, Sen John McCain selected Sarah Palin as his running mate. Let’s take a look at what she brings:
- NRA Life memeber
- Fiscal conservative
- Pro oil exploration
- Pro life
- Actually made changes to clean up corruption
A lot of the things we want in a candidate.
The Weekly Standard says:
“a politician of eye-popping integrity”“She made three other promises: to end corruption in state government, cut spending, and provide accountability. She’s now redeeming those promises.”“Palin’s tough spending cuts drew criticism from Republican legislators whose pet projects were vetoed. But her popularity doesn’t appear threatened. ‘It’s not just that she’s pretty and young,’ says Dittman. ‘She’s really smart. And there’s no guile. She says her favorite meal is moose stew or mooseburgers. It wouldn’t shock people if that were true.'”
I think this shores up some of McCain’s weak points, especially with the right wing.
