After losing the 1984 Miss Alaska pageant to Maryline Blackburn (shown above) Sarah Palin has gone on to be the first woman picked by the GOP to be Vice President. Just think if she had actually won the crown, how much better her resume would have been.
There are many Republican women who are more qualified: Christine Whitman, Kay Baily Hutchison, that Snowe chick - Olympia, Carly Fiorina (if you want a real executive), hell even Condi Rice. Unfortunately, these ladies are not as photogenic, they have a problem with being intelligent and damn it they talk back. In Palin, John McSame has in essence picked a "trophy" VP candidate to go after the Hillraiser crowd. Condescending much?
Who knew McSame was this desperate to control a news cycle. As Sarah Palin is considered one of the hottest female politicians, I'm sure somewhere Paris Hilton is giving the thumbs up.
