Now obviously I’m not privy to what Republican Sen. John McCain was thinking when he chose Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, but as I’ve spent the day thinking about this choice, it strikes me as more than a little curious. Putting aside Palin’s thin resume – which makes Democratic nominee Barack Obama look supremely experienced by contrast – there’s the issue of a pending investigation into her role in an attempt to get an Alaska State Trooper fired from his job because he’s Palin’s sister’s ex husband. Throw in Palin’s ties to the Alaska oil industry, and you’ve got one heck of a VP candidate!
Oh hey, and did I mention McCain has only met Palin once? That’s sure to inspire confidence and ensure chemistry for the Republican ticket!
