The Woman Who Beat McCain's VP

8/29/2008 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John McCain's VP Governor Sarah Palin hasn't lost the election yet, but she did lose the 1984 Miss Alaska pageant to Maryline Blackburn, coming in second.

According to her website, Maryline "is a singer with a wide spectrum of performing experiences." Maybe she'll perform at the RNC in St. Paul on Monday.

OK, after we all figure out if we'd take her to bed or not, we'll realize that no, we have no idea why she should be put in the VP position and that in fact she's a VERY BAD CHOICE FOR VP. Of all the accomplished, proven and potent women in politics, he picks HER? Woman will not be fooled. Accomplished smart woman across the country will see this as a betrayal of the Republican Party, the idea of the United States and of the office of VP. McCain has the poor judgement.

McCAIN HAS NO INTENTIONS OF CHANGING ANYTHING IN THE ADMINISTRATION. HE'S THEIR PUPPET AND THAT'S BEEN SHOWN BY HOW MCCAIN HAS DROPPED ALL HIS EARLIER OPPOSITION AND IS NOW IN LINE WITH THE BUSH/CHENEY POLICIES.

She's a JOKE! She's bei9ng used as a gimmick My McBush to try to steal some of Barack's momentum.

To the so-called Hilary supporters claiming to support her. You are NOT true liberals or Hilary supporters. Hilary believes in women's rights, Hilary is PRO-CHOICE and Hilary would NEVER have entered a beauty pageant. This beauty queen chick is ANTI-women's rights to choose, anti-feminists. If you are truly a Hilary supporter who is supporting this chick, you are stupid. It's an insult to Hilary to compare her to this chick who doesn't believe in women's rights and is ANTI-feminism. She's a breeder, only. She led a small town, and will not be taken seriously as a politician. Hilary is taken seriously.

Besides, Hilary will be Secretary of State. P.S. Can't wait for the Internet videos of the 1984 pageants to surface.

FIRST OF ALL I DOUBT ANY OF THESE PEOPLE COMENTING ON THIS ARE ACTUALLY FROM ALASKA, LIKE I AM.
BORN AND RAISED, ALWAYS PROUD OF IT.
663,661 that is Alaska population, not seven.
I read your website just about everyday and it definitely makes me think twice. eoline.com also publishes the same stories you guys do.
To attack someone for not winning a beauty pageant is quit ridiculous. I would love to see some pictures of the writers from TMZ. Don’t be jealous that our Governor has done great things for Alaska. She just signed a bill that approved a $1200 economic rebate for every Alaskan, and that’s an additional add on to our annual PFD which is around $2,000.... direct deposits on September 12 bi#$%#$!!!!
What other state do you know that gets free money every September? I'll tell you, not one.
Just look at the votes from the stupid poll you guys posted, YES was up 70%. I’m outraged on this article and I guarantee every Alaskan that comes across this bswill be too.
Unless you want to offend those "seven people" I suggest you recant your article and post a new positive one.
NO BIT****SSNESS TMZ!
p.s. Did you know Alaska is the richest state in the nation, where do you think all the oil comes from?

hey tmz, why make fun of a serious woman, you guys never did show biden before he got his hair plugs?? and she might of lost the beauty pagent, but she was the winner of a mayoral campaign, and a state governors campaign. she has more time in executive duties than obama, and he blew 100,000,000.00 on chicago schools, and the schools are no better off for it. so tmz, again i say stay out of politics, and stick to trashy celebreties, you know, your kind of people.

I do think it is interesting that she also fought for campaign reform. One of the things that makes me give the squint eye to Obama is the fact that he did not receive any party money, which means that he doesn't have to account for where his campaign contributions are coming from, how much or from what special interest group.

I'm not naive enough to believe that political contributions are made altruistically. They are made for one purpose and that purpose is the power to control contracts, government funds and pushing self-serving specialty bills through the political sludge.

Huh?    

How and why does TMZ publish your comment and then deletes it???? There's nothing offensive, graphic or inappropriate language, tame enough to let your preacher read it and then TMZ deletes. JUst curious how their mind works. I'll be surprised if this post makes it on.

Esstee, you hit the nail on the head! Palin is only selected because she looks very young and pretty. She's just the sort of cheap hooker stand-in to make the juvenile boy-males Bush, Cheney and McCain wet their panties. It's partly the old guy vanity, the trophy bitch. McCain has no intention of changing any Cheney/Bush woman-hating, greed at all costs "Israel and Halliburton above all" policies, he doesn't have the character development. The Republicans are led by corporations who use juvenile delinquents as puppets in office. That's why an idiot like Bush and slightly smarter but definite subsurvients like McCain and Palin serve the current Republican ticket so well. McCain and Palin will drown in the debates! Obama and Biden will roast them alive and the whole nation will be reminded what the office of President requires.

You all just can't give people of color a break. It's obvious that Palin didn't stand a chance against Maryline in the Ma Alaska contest but who is the real winner here. Palin is the damn Republican VP Pick and a Governor. So Palin is the overall winner but you idiots are so closed minded.

Some of you are sooooooooo right! (if you'll excuse the term, LOL) How can anyone take seriously a candidate who was beaten in a beauty contest? I mean, this is the Ms. VP beauty pageant isn't it? We of course, must only vote for inexperienced men, not women in this elec...er, I mean pageant! Homely people could never be elected to office. Just look at Abraham Lincoln or how about Woodrow Wilson...now there's a fox! LOL!! Only good looking contestants with charm, personality and vague meaningless speeches have what it takes to win this pageant in November. LOL!!!!
