Many of us want to know who Sarah Palin is, and have spent the day looking for information. Okay, I saw the images of her with the rifle and know she’s a life-long member of the NRA. I know she’s pro-life, has five children, including one with Downs Syndrome. All of this is information they released with the announcement. But what’s the real deal? Before today, how many of us had heard her name before? It seems really odd that someone that is known by so few would be selected for the vice president position. Whoever is vice president comes president of the senate and casts the tie-breaking votes. The person also step in and becomes commander-in-chief if something happens to the president. With that in mind, consider that Palin is the governor of a state that has a population about equal to the city of Memphis.
I just happened to come across a blog by an Alaskan resident who has decided to share the inside story. He offers some insight to help us answer the question, “Who is Sarah Palin?” Check out the article, “‘What is McCain Thinking? One Alaskan’s Perspective,” posted by akmuckraker.
