So Sarah Palin is going to be McCain’s running mate. Whoopideedoo.
It has always bugged me that governors are put on a pedestal when it comes to running for President. Yes, they have “executive experience”. But as far as I can tell, Senators get a fair amount of experience in government as well.
Today I heard John McCain highlight all of Palin’s “executive experience” and he included her time on the PTA. Give me a break. By that standard, I am already building my Vice-Presidential résumé. When I am Chelsea Clinton’s running mate in 2028 she can tout that I was Governor of Connecticut & Rhode Island, Archbishop of Boston, shift manager at an Arby’s franchise and President of Boston Opera Collaborative.
The video below has Tom thinking that he has a shot in 2028 as well.
Listen closely for a Whalers reference.
