John McCain is getting on a bit. In fact he's about 250 years old. Certain disaffected Hillary Clinton supporters/nutbags are gagging for a woman to vote for. So, is anyone surprised that all of a sudden the Republican has picked a much younger, female running mate?

Sen. John McCain has picked Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate, a senior McCain campaign official told CNN on Friday.

Palin, 44, who's in her first term as governor, is a pioneering figure in Alaska, the first woman and the youngest person to hold the state's top political job.

She catapulted to the post with a strong reputation as a political outsider, forged during her stint in local politics. She was mayor and a council member of the small town of Wasilla and was chairman of the state Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, which regulates Alaska's oil and gas resources, in 2003 and 2004.

Who knew Alaska still even existed? And here's a word I bet you've never heard before,

“Palin is becoming a star in the conservative movement, a fiscal conservative in a state that is looking like a boondoggle for pork barrel spending,” ”

I'll give you a clue. It's not "fiscal" or "conservative"
