Joining in the collective surprise...

...I feel I must comment on McCain's choice of running mate.

Wow. Didn't see that coming. (Not that I was really paying attention to that side too much.)

It's nice that the McCain camp can't really say anything about Obama not being experienced now. I like that she's a woman with a fascinating life but the fact that she is "a strong defender of traditional family values, with an unquestioned commitment to protect life." negates any possibility that I'd switch my vote to Republican.

If it does anything, McCain's selection of Governor Palin makes me stop and think for a second. Not question my vote for Obama, but think and ponder politics. If he'd picked another middle aged white guy I wouldn't have even batted an eyelash. Now, no matter what, this election is an historic one. I'm glad I get to participate.

Side note: I see Tina Fey doing a lot of impersonations from now until the election.
