Is This The Face Of McCain's Running Mate?

(OFFICIAL: Fox News get official confirmation from Senator McCain's staff that it IS Governor Sarah Palin!)

Scottish comedian and late night host, Craig Ferguson, is what we call back home, a top man.

And the Great State of Alaska decided to recognise his efforts to be naturalised a year ago, when Governor Sarah Palin made him an honourary citizen of her State.

Look at her closely below.

"She's like...HELL-O-O"

(Loved the little making of the cross annointing gesture, too)

Did we just see Senator John McCain's running mate, as Vice-President? I, for one, hope so.

INTERESTING DEVELOPMENTS: Did this Gulfstream private jet, going from Anchorage, AK to Hook Field Municipal Airport, near Dayton, OH (scene of tomorrow's Republican VP announcement) carry Governor Palin? Track the flight via Flight Aware. (Via Carlos Echevarria)

UPDATE 9:18 AM EST: Both CNN and NBC confirm, according to their sources, that Govenor Tim Pawlenty is OUT of contention. NBC confirm it's not ex-Governor Mitt Romney either. Palin now looks a certainty. You want a game changer? You got it.

UPDATE: Heh. I wish she were another Maggie.

VIA Internet Ronin: The image of the day. Mother Palin.

  • I posted on Althouse how much Palin puts the jujitsu on many of Obama's memes. Age, experience, took on Big Oil, no really airs about here, the gender that couldn't even get vetted by Obama...Hell, can McCain be her running mate?

    Still, it seems like a pipe dream...we'll probably get some Slick-A-Tron like Romney who I wouldn't want to sell me a used car, much less anything related to the Republic...

    Have a nice holiday, my friend!

  • A charming clip for all involved...

    Any Republican hoping to win the next election should hope it's not Romney, though.

    Romney's essential unelectability won't go away, but being VP will make his nomination unstoppable.

  • I agree that Romney gives off a very slick vibe (similar to Joe Biden, curiously), but he's extremely competent.

    Where are you going for your long vac, Ron? Any plans?

    I'll miss you, enjoy my darling! :)

  • Funds have created a weak Labor Day holiday for me, alas, and Saturday as Michigan Football begins I will be land locked! ( I live very close to the largest football arena in America! 100,000+ drunks descend on top of my living space 7 Saturdays a year!)

    In a few weeks, I may be off to NYC for a restaurant opening of a friend plus some toney party out in Westchester... and yourself?

    PS thanks for all the delight you give in case I hadn't said that in awhile!

  • McCain is seemingly gathering most of his primary opponents in Dayton for the announcement. I just heard that Pawlenty said he won't be in Dayton, Ohio, but will be making his regular radio address today.

    That might mean that Pawlenty is out, but even that's not definite.

    I called for Palin's name to be chosen back in February, and again last month - in my repost - and I'm hoping she is McCain's choice.

    She is a true Republican maverick. So who better to run with the original Republican maverick?

    Romney is a very accomplished man and would not be hard to support. But he is not popular with the Republican base. But ... we'll see.

  • Wow. Called that one, didn't 'cha.

  • Ron -- aww, man, that sucks. I'll get back to you, more intimately, later though. :)

    Benning -- let me check out your post! I think it's linked to it, below the comments section. :)

    Chuck B -- YAY, thanks so much! Hugs!

  • Fox said that? Cool Beans! I'm gonna make a decent banner this time!

  • Yow! The pipe dream has come true! Incredible! Good timing on that post, Vic!

  • I like the "naughty librarian vibe" line. I recall things similar to that being said about Laura Bush not too long ago.

    I'm excited about Palin!

  • And so it was her after all.

    I wonder what she was thinking on that flight, as her life moved from the vital but small confines of Alaskan politics to the very largest stage of them all?

  • Love the Mother Palin image. Very nice!

    By Blogger benning, at Fri Aug 29, 02:14:00 pm GMT-4  

  • Congrats on the pick, Victoria! I never thought he'd do it and am very impressed that he did. Win or lose, I hope Palin turns out to have been a giant plus for McCain's campaign.
