Getting to know her!

I saw this at Mike's America and wanted to share it with everyone!

Who is Sarah Palin?

The story in pictures...


Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, left, and her husband Todd Palin hold their baby boy Trig in Anchorage, Alaska Wednesday, April 23, 2008. Palin's fifth child was born with Down syndrome, a genetic abnormality that impedes physical, intellectual and language development. "We knew through early testing he would face special challenges, and we feel privileged that God would entrust us with this gift and allow us unspeakable joy as he entered our lives" Sarah Palin said.

Today, Senator McCain made an exciting decision in choosing Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to join him on his ticket as the Vice Presidential candidate. Governor Palin is a proven reformer who is a wise steward of taxpayer dollars and champion for accountability in government. Governor Palin's success is due to her dedication to principle and her roll-up-your-sleeves work ethic and serves as a wonderful example of the spirit of America. By selecting a working mother with a track record of getting things done, Senator McCain has once again demonstrated his commitment to reforming Washington.

I applaud Senator McCain for selecting Governor Palin. This decision is yet another example of why the American people can trust him to make wise decisions and to confidently lead this country.


Sarah Palin campaigning for Governor. She won on a reform platform despite fierce opposition including some within her own party.


Governor Palin has firsthand experience in the quest for America's energy indepencence. Her husband Todd works on Alaska's North Slope helping to bring American energy to America's consumers. Like most Alaskans, she supports drilling for new energy in ANWR and offshore.


As Commander in Chief of Alaska's National Guard she's played an active roll in supporting our troops both at home and in vists overseas. Her oldest son will deploy to Iraq on September 11th 2008.


This is no pushover. She knows the business end of a gun and how to shoot it (video). Her nickname on the state campionship women's basketball team was "Barracuda." She is a hunter, pilot and lifetime member of the NRA. Joe Biden won't push THIS woman around in debates.

What a great way to show others what you've learned about her. I've been reading everything I can get a hold of about her. I've seen some great interviews on cable as well.I'm lovin' it! It's so nice to be energized once again about this election. I'm so proud of the RNC for respecting the plight of many southerners impacted by Gustav.

I wish she were running for President instead of McCain. I have not noticed that the career politicians with all the "experience" have done anything right for all their time in grade. I have decided to vote for her, instead of blowing off my vote on a Bob Barr protest ballot.

One of my friends is from Alaska and she said Mrs. palin was a really great governer!! I hope mccain wins so she can be VP!

The few conservatives around me here are positively thirilled with McCain's choice of Palin, and the little political talk I heard over the weekend indicated that some Democrats will abandon Obama for that ticket as well, thanks to her being a lifelong NRA member too.

I'm with the hermit in wishing SHE were running instead of McCain. Bad Republican that I am, I just can't seem to like him...

Great information. I think she is going to be a GREAT Vice President. I know the MSM will have a field day with the news that her 17 year old daughter is pregnant. The good news is she is marrying the father and having the baby. Unlike Obama, Palin thinks her daughter will not be "punished" with a child!!!

Thanks for the great pics and commentary.
