Palin was born in Idaho and raised in Alaska. In 1984, she was the runner-up in the Miss Alaska pageant, receiving a scholarship that allowed her to attend the University of Idaho, where she received a degree in journalism. After working as a sports reporter at an Anchorage television station, Palin served two terms on the Wasilla, Alaska, City Council from 1992 to 1996, was elected mayor of Wasilla (population 5,470 in 2000) in 1996, and ran unsuccessfully for Lieutenant Governor in 2002.
Palin was elected Governor of Alaska in 2006 on the theme of governmental reform, defeating incumbent governor Frank Murkowski in the Republican primary and former Democratic Alaskan governor Tony Knowles in the general election.
So her political experience consists of being a city council member for 4 years, a mayor of a small Alaska town for 10 and then 2 years in her current position as Governor.
Remember the obsession Republicans have with Obama's inexperience? Sure you do. That is one of their biggest gripes about Obama before moving on to other things like flag pins.
Well, today is John McCain's birthday. Happy #72, Johnny!
72 years. Hmmmm. So if John McCain were not able to fulfill his duties as President for some reason, guess who moves in to the White House?
Yep, former city councilwoman/mayor/1 term governor and Vogue cover girl, Sarah Palin.
Can it be that the GOP is really this stupid?
Or so friggin' hypocritical?
