I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

McCain Veep Announcement Tomorrow ?

by @ 7:27 pm on July 27, 2008. Filed under 2008 Election, 2008 Republican Veepstakes, John McCain, Politics

This is either informed speculation, or a wild-assed guess:

Take this for what it’s worth–and it may not be much–but a source well-connected in Minnesota politics (and in a position to know) is pretty sure Tim Pawlenty has pulled out of one or two events scheduled there for tomorrow. Assuming that’s right, I guess it could mean any number of things: 1.) There was some random, non-veepstakes-related conflict that forced the change of schedule. 2.) McCain or his vetters intend to meet with Pawlenty tomorrow, possibly somewhere outside Minnesota. 3.) McCain intends to announce his veep pick tomorrow and has asked several short-listers to clear their schedules. 4.) McCain intends to announce Pawlenty as his running mate tomorrow.

We shall see…..

    Desperately seeking Sarah
    Americans need a little Palin Power

    Sarah Palin the current Governor of Alaska is John McCain’s ultimate choice for VP. I do believe a woman is next in line for the presidency. All Conservatives like her. She is popular in Alaska. Hillary supporters would relish her. She would solidify a 12 or possibly 16 year Republican executive.

    John McCain’s boring campaign is wearing thin. I need a little Palin Power to get me interested again. They would say ‘but she is only a half term Governor!’ And your point is?

    That’s all I have to say about that!”

    Pawlenty is a bad pick for the following reasons:

    1) He doesn’t put Minnesota in play.

    2) Pawlenty’s not conservative and more importantly, he doesn’t excite conseratives.

    3) Pawlenty doesn’t bring much to the table issue wise.
