McCain/Fox Ticket = Sure Bet

That's right, folks. Sarah Palin, John McCain's running mate, is/was very attractive.

The Alaskan governor was once a beauty queen and is now a self-proclaimed hockey mom. I would totally have a crush on her if she didn't remind me of both Julia Louis-Dreyfus' character in Arrested Development and Michael Palin as Sir Galahad. Now I just laugh when I think about her.

Anyway, what does this VP selection mean for this November's election? Not sure. Maybe it'll determine whether America is more misogynistic or racist.

Here's to you, Sarah Palin.

As hilarious as this is, you're totally fueling the Pat Buchanan "gal" types.

But still...hahaha.

(Really, I'm just jealous. Why can't I be a GILF too?)

I have to say that I'm attracted to Ms. Palin, and not in the way you are suggesting, PB.

In my case, it's an identity thing. I mean, I, too, am in my 40s and have been a hockey mom, even a hockey team mom. I have kids. I have brown hair and wear glasses. I too am about to take a job for which I feel I could be a bit more qualified (assuming she feels this way).

But the more I read about her, the more I see our huge differences: She doesn't believe that global warming has a man-made component, she does believe that children need to learn about creationism, she is against abortion in all cases (I think that's what I read), and, yet, ironically, likes to hunt. Bambi doesn't count. I'm not a PETA person, but I do have trouble with the hunt-for-fun thing.

Hmm. If I'm looking to "identify" with a candidate, this white middle-aged woman may have to go with Mr. Obama. I can't bowl either.
