Palin for Veep Update

Thomas Cheplik over at the American Spectator has climbed on the Sarah Palin for Vice President bandwagon. He writes:

Mrs. Palin is one of conservatism's own, and would be the first female vice president. She's young being only 44 (two years behind Senator Obama), she is widely known to despise government corruption. She defeated a horribly entrenched and corrupt Republican political machine in Alaska. She has a son in the U.S. military. She's strongly pro-life, belonging, in fact, to Feminists for Life. Gov. Palin could become the Republican Party's Segolene Royal, the French Socialist Party's glamorous leader known for her heels and political bite. She is the perfect antidote to Sen. Obama's cheap thrills, and would help rejuvenate conservatism.
Can't disagree with that. Read the whole thing here.

David Freddeso over at the Corner agrees. [here]

Bill Shaw, over at Writemarsh, chimes in.
I'd like to take this opportunity to formally throw my support behind Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska to be named John McCain's running mate for the fall election. Why Sarah Palin?-She's a hunter and an NRA member, for starters. She's attractive, and oh, yeah...if McCain picks her, we get to mess up the democrat's argument that they are going to make history when (heh) they win! We get to make history first, if and when we elect McCain for President and Palin for Vice President. How sweet it would be to be the first to have a Republican woman elected to the only office that is literally a heartbeat away from being president!

Here's an earlier post of mine on Sarah.

Here's a link to the "Draft Sarah Palin for Vice Presisdent website".

Fred Barnes is impressed, too. Read it here.

Patrick Ruffini agrees here. He points out that Sarah singlehandedly killed the "Bridge to Nowhere" over determined opposition from entrenched interests.

She has Don Surber's endorsement here. He likes her porkbusting credentials [here].
