Here’s what Michael has to say:
Life member of the NRA…serously pro-gun…an honest to goodness conservative
I actually love this idea. I’m not really a big fan of playing one-upmanship with the Democrats, but running a smart, tough, conservative and qualified woman with Sen. MacAttack seems like a pretty good idea to me. She has all the appeal of Bobby Jindal, without having to steal a great governor from a state that really needs him right now.
Of course, we’d be stealing a great governor from Alaska, but I’m sure they’d be alright up there in the frozen wastelands. Check out Sarah Palin’s track record:
- Life Member of the National Rifle Association
- Currently suing the federal government for listing the polar bears as threatened
- Has a low tolerance for corruption and bullcrap, apparently
Honestly, McCain’s running mate will go a long, long way toward helping conservatives feel better (or worse) about their choices coming up this fall. We’ve all been hoping for a while that he picks a good VP, someone who we hope can revitalize the party around strong conservative fiscal and foreign policy. Sarah Palin could actually be a pretty solid choice to fill that role; she’s got the conservative street cred, and I won’t lie that I wouldn’t enjoy telling off my Democrat friends because we were running a woman.
