McBush Picks Sarah Palin for VP

Yes, it's for real! McBush has picked a corrupt Alaska Governor with virtually no executive experience and no foreign policy experience at all. Oh yes, and she's also virulently anti-choice, anti-queer, anti-environment, anti-middle class, anti-fiscal sanity, and all around radical right!

Woo-hoo for Rethuglicans!

"Mr. Palin has worked for nearly 20 years as a production operator in the oil fields on Alaska’s North Slope, and he also is a lifelong commercial fisherman in Bristol Bay."

She's literally married to the oil industry.

McCain just pulled a Mondale, but with a less qualified running mate.

PUMAtrolls are delirious with joy, proving exactly what we thought: they're not Democrats at all.

I agree she is a cynical choice, but she has been pretty good on gay issues.

Her back was up against the wall when she extended benefits to same-sex couples. This is from her Wikipedia page:

She opposes same-sex marriage.[19] Palin complied with an Alaskan state Supreme Court order and signed an implementation of same-sex benefits into law stating that legal options to avoid doing so had run out.[48][49] She supported a non-binding referendum for a constitutional amendment to deny benefits to homosexual couples.[50] Alaska was one of the first U.S. states to pass a constitutional ban on gay marriage, in 1998, along with Hawaii.[51] Palin has stated that she supported the 1998 constitutional amendment.[19]
