Palin VP: The reaction

OK, so how’s everybody liking Sarah Palin as John McCain’s running mate? A quick rundown:

  • You gotta know Wonkette’s loving the choice of the woman they dubbed the “GILF” when she was elected in 2006.
  • David Keene of the American Conservative Union: “The selection of Governor Palin is great news for conservatives, for the party and for the country. Her dedication to principle, her courage both before and after her election as Governor of Alaska and her personal qualities make her a perfect choice for Vice President. I predict any conservatives who have been lukewarm thus far in their support of the McCain candidacy will work their hearts out between now and November for the McCain – Palin ticket.”
  • Matt Lewis: “If you had to imagine a ticket that could possibly defeat Obama, you couldn’t have scripted it any better than this.”
  • Founding Bloggers notes, “It took the AP two paragraphs to attack her,” with this quote: “She has more experience catching fish than dealing with foreign policy or national affairs.” To which FB responds: “It’s too bad she wasn’t a community organizer.”
  • U.S. News has some biographical facts: Starting point guard on a state championship basketball team, journalism major, runner-up Miss Alaska, refers to her husband as “First Dude.”

Assuming she’s got no major skeletons in her closet, Palin looks like a winner.
