Oh Boy.

Things just got very interesting.

I'm not sure how I feel about this.

I think Dr. Mad Scientist summed it up well (we've been discussing this update all morning via email) when he said:

"Crap, I'm going to feel dirty if I vote Republican... "

All politics aside, I am awfully fucking proud of a Mat-Valley girl (Wasilla is right next to Palmer) making good. Even if she sports a mean head of Jersey-Girl hair and is an ex-beauty queen. Ha ha!

Stay tuned, you know I'll have a bigger more in-depth blog post about this--ha ha!

Sometimes, getting dirty is the only way to get a tough job done.

I have no problems with that ticket.

Hockey moms unite!

I saw that online right before I went on your website, and I figured you'd be happy!

I've been registered to vote for 16 years now, and have yet to vote Republican.

I have to say that the choice certainly pushed me into the "undecided" group that I was on the edge of. I'll have to see what she's all about!

Proud that a Mat-Valley girl is a meat puppet? The republicans selected her so that they'd win Clinton votes. They've been talking about this FOREVER. Before the primaries. Someone asked me about her in Atlanta because they heard the republicans were thinking about her. And why? To win Clinton votes.

Huckabee in an article I read was quoted saying that if women didn't feel there was a place for them with the democrats, well, there now is a place for them with the replublicans. Riiight, with a woman who is being hailed for her anti-abortion stands!

It's a ruse, ladies. It's a ruse.

I thought of you immediately!! Love Dr. Mad Scientist's comment.

There's just no way ever I'd vote for him though, even with a woman on the ticket.

Well alrightie then, that is an interesting turn of events. I usually stay the hell out of political commentaries. Just so you know ;)

One of the first things I thought was "Wonder what Bezzie's going to say about this?" If all Alaska girls are are thrifty, witty and wise as you, perhaps she should have the #1 job. I'm a little tired of politics lately, but I am looking forward to the next 67 days of your commentary!

Palin is a pro-lifer which is a big step in the right direction for me. I need to learn more about her before deciding whether to vote McCain or a third party. I'm a registered Republican. I haven't felt dirty yet, haha.

You know, it makes me want to vote for McCain now. I'm not ready to toss Hilary to the sidelines yet, but I am mulling over Palin's credentials.

I was just coming over to ask you how you felt about this new "turn of events" :). I'd love to see your take, because I'm an Independent, and I'm still pretty undecided ;).

This decision left me with a big "huh?" and I also ran to see what your reaction was!

It's been so long since I read blogs, I'll need weeks to catch up. I missed you!

Actual politics aside, no matter what kind of a candidate she will make, this was a stroke of genius by the McCain campaign.

Cut the Obama convention dazzle off before it got any momentum. This just turned into an interesting election. From a "passion play" point of view.

Don't keep us in suspense too long. I can't wait to hear what you have to say.

but, if those were a man's credentials, would he have been picked?

I don't think that women just vote for a woman without looking at their positions.

WOW.... wow.... yeah, things did just get interesting.

Four years ago, I'd have gone with that ticket... but now it's too little too late. I'd be interested to see the rest of your opinions.

OH... and I really resent the implication that you can just plunk another woman in the race to pick up "Clinton's votes." because seriously... all the people (men and women) who voted for her in the primary did so *only* because she was a woman???? I don't think so.

Ooooh, ALASKA!

Perhaps her choice was meant to offset the fact that a lot of people are going to vote for Oboner because he's half black. Now some of the ones who just wanted to see a woman--any woman--in the White House will get the chance to vote for a woman. Any woman.

Well, not just any woman. An ALASKAN!

If she had a club foot, I'd be in paradise...
