McCain's VP

Miss Alaska Loser

8/29/2008 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Before she was named McCain's Vice Presidential nominee today, no one except for the seven people who live in Alaska ever heard of Gov. Sarah Palin -- or that she came in second place at the 1984 Miss Alaska pageant.

Sarah Palin
Palin did win Miss Wasilla and the coveted Miss Congeniality award. So who cares what her
economic plan is?


V.P. Nominee was once Miss Wasilla, Alaska

Anyone who goes to work everyday is insane to vote for Obama who will tax it to no end to pay for everyone else's entitlements.

Her husband, Todd, is a Native Yup'ik Eskimo.[5] Outside the fishing season, Todd works for BP at an oil field on the North Slope[6] and is a champion snowmobiler, winning the 2000-mile "Iron Dog" race four times.[5] The two eloped shortly after Palin graduated college; when they learned they needed witnesses for the civil ceremony, they recruited two residents from the old-age home down the street.[5] The Palin family lives in Wasilla, about 40 miles (64 km) north of Anchorage

But her husband work's for BP oil let's see how the gas prices do now.

Yeah, because women will vote for women, no matter who it is. As long as there are boobs involved, it doesn't matter if it's Hillary or Ann Coulter. Insulting.

I'm happy McCain chose another Washington outsider as his VP choice. I don't care how young she is... She still has more executive experience than Obama. I would even be happy if she took only 1/3rd of the Hillary supporters. Obama is a nobody and will stay that way. Many people are comfortable in front of crowds and can read teleprompters.... But do they have a solid character like Obama? I don't think so. I look forward to anyone pointing out a single stance that Obama has voiced (other than change)... that he hasn't "Changed".

Good Luck!

OBAMA IS TOAST...BURNT TOAST!!!!!!!!!

Palin is a STRONG woman with a proven record of reform. She's taken on the establishment and won. She has more executive experience than Obama and Biden put together. Her approval rating in Alaska is 80% Those who know her, LOVE her.

She is also a loving mother of a child with Downs Syndrom. Obama would've MURDERED her child if he had the chance!

Obama Hussein is an anti-capitalist MARXIST who, along with his ugly, Amazonian wife, HATE America!

All you libs at TMZ get used to another 8 years of Republican power!!!!!

on experience................

Obama has been a senator for 2 years and he wants to run the country?
enough experience-you decide for yourself
he has picked Biden, an older more experienced VP to make up for his lack of experience

Palin has 2 years experience as Governor-running a state-
only going to be VP-she isn't running for president
she adds youth to McCain's experience
if anything should happen to McCain in the years after he's elected-if he is-her experience will be suitable for governing the country and more indeed than Obama has right now and he's asking the nation to trust that he's ready to run the country

the most brilliant economists, scientists, strategists, advisers etc. in the country-possibly in the world will be at the disposal of whoever wins the presidency -so a lot of who might do best depends on the brilliant team that they call on for help-even if they aren't in political positions-like Bill Gates or Warren Buffet-brilliant minds in all areas

we should all be proud and support whoever wins office
nothing the rest of the world would like more than to see us fighting amongst ourselves!!

DON'T BE A PART OF THAT!

Another beauty contestant who gains employment because of it and now she feels she can show the world how to run a country as she raises 5 kids. Please honey, the superwoman theory is already out the window, we've tried it, it does not work and can not really be realistically done , those who say it can need to ask your children how they felt why you were playing superwoman and they were being raised by someone else. Not impressed and to the people who want to vote for her just because she's a woman, I pity the fool.

guess who    


I'm not into affirmative action picks, but Palin is smart, articulate, and competent in her own right, regardless of whether she has a uterus. And in this case, McCain picking a woman--a bright conservative who happens to be female--was necessary.

Stupid decision. If he's trying to attract Hillary voters, he's not going to do it with a pro-life candidate. And if he's trying to attract women voters in general, 99% of them are going to be turned off by the fact this woman thought so highly of herself to put on a swimsuit and parade around a stage like a piece of meat in order to win a beauty pagaent. McCain has now graduated to the level of Desperate Old Man.
