As the chosen one claims to make history, :

(CNN) — Sen. John McCain announced Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his vice presidential candidate Friday, calling her “the running mate who can best help me shake up Washington.”

“She’s exactly who this country needs to help me fight the same old Washington politics of me first and country second,” the presumptive Republican nominee said at a Dayton, Ohio, rally of about 15,000 supporters, who welcomed the surprise pick of the relatively unknown politician with cheers and flags.

Obama is just another liberal politician. He believes that his cherished liberal notions and recycled 60’s era policies can “change the world”. By having their convention in Denver, the democrats believed that they could reach out to the western states. Instead Obama picks a member of the East Coast Liberal Elite to do the actual governing be his running mate.

Gov. Palin’s selection shows that John McCain cares about the west and women voters. especially the voters Obama dumped on in his race to defeat Hillary.

It did not take long for the MSM/liberal elite to go on the warpath:

  1. “Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency.”
  2. Sen. Chuck Schumer says:
    “After the great success of the Democratic convention, the choice of Sarah Palin is surely a Hail Mary pass.”
  3. McCain’s VP Wants Creationism Taught in School

But before anyone gets carried away:

  1. “Geraldine Ferraro says that many women feel disaffected by the way Hillary Clinton got treated by the Democratic Party and the media — and they will appreciate an opportunity to support a historic ticket”
  2. “On the Democrat message boards and blogs I have heard a lot of people saying they can’t wait until she has to debate Biden. They might want to be careful what they wish for. In my column at Townhall today I write about some examples of Biden’s bad foreign policy judgment. Biden also has a horrible habit of exaggerating and boasting.”(h/t: Michelle Malkin)

After a year of the MSM sucking up to Obama, this is change we can believe in.
