Vice President Sarah Palin: I like this lady already

From her Wiki entry, we learn that Gov. Sarah Palin:

  • was a 1984 runner-up in the Miss Alaska pageant
  • Was the point guard and captain for the Wasilla High School Warriors, in Wasilla, Alaska. Palin led Wasilla Warriors to the Alaska small-school basketball championship in 1982, playing the championship game with a stress fracture in her ankle and hitting a critical free throw in the last seconds.
  • She received a scholarship to attend the University of Idaho, where she received a journalism degree. 
  • She briefly worked as a sports reporter at an Anchorage television station

So she’s a former almost-beauty queen; I’ve observed the runner-up is usually the best selection at pageants (winners are apple polishers, which the runners-up are too proud to do everything it takes to win, or too pretty for jealous female judges to validate). 

She wasn’t simply an athlete in high school. She was a super-bad, play-through-pain leader on a state championship basketball team. 

She attended University of Idaho, which means a McCain win will let the entire nation get “Vandalized!”

And she’s a former sports reporter! I was already pretty likely to choose McCain. But by adding Palin to the ticket, Maverick just earned my undying loyalty and respect.

I was going to hold my nose and pull the lever for him; now, I’m in love.
