In Flyover Country: VEEPstakes ends with Palin as the pick!
Excerpted from this post at In Flyover Country
We In Flyover Country months ago were the first to report Alaska Gov.
Sarah Palin as a viable, sure-fire pick, and have come to believe that
this is the best choice Team McCain could have made. She's the entire
package wrapped up in one - she's a fresh face (a runner-up 1984 Miss
Alaska to boot!) and a true reformer. In just a short time, she has
done more as governor than others can in a lifetime. She is rock
solid on the socially conservative issues, but fiscal conservatives
will also love the fact that she has thus far saved $5 billion in the
state of Alaska, even humbly selling the state's jet. When she was
mayor, she cut her own pay. Increasingly known for being a corrupt
state, Palin went in as a reformer and has cleaned house.
