And You Picked Her Because . . . ?

The Peach may now state with some certainty that by selecting Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, John McCain has officially gone off his McNut. Don't get The Peach wrong, there really is nothing bad about Palin. She just doesn't register.

But that isn't the least of it. As recently as the first week of August 2008 Palin has been under investigation for abusing her power. Even though Palin has denied the allegations, the fact of the matter is she is still under investigation. Why would any presidential candidate want to burden themselves with this? Is this how McCain proves to people that he is a "maverick?" By tapping a person who is attached to some form of corruption?

The Palin supporters are quick to point out that the gov maintains an 80% approval rating in their state. But, let's face it. We're talking about Alaska where there are 114 single men for every 100 single women (the highest ratio in the country). And that's in the summertime when troupes of strippers are shipped in for entertainment. Hell, Alaskans would approve of Pamela Sue Anderson as governor if they had the chance!

Update on McCain VP selection

According to reports out of Cincinnati, a plane carrying Sarah Palin has landed in Middletown, Ohio. John McCain is expected to announce her as his running mate sometime today.

McCain picks VP?
