McCain picks Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska for his running mate, and turns 72 years old today.
When elected governor, Miss Wasilla / Sarah, the former Alaskan beauty queen, was crowned America's Hottest Governor or GILF (Governor I'd Like to...). McCain is following a proud tradition of old rich white men turning to hot young women (Sarah is only 44) in their twilight years for a bit of excitement. If only Anna Nicole Smith were still with us she would also have made a fine running mate (we miss you).
Is he trying to win over Hillary's supporters, mostly pro-choice voters, with another woman, who happens to be pro-life? Personally, I can't wait to see Joe Biden crush Sarah Palin in the vice-presidential debates; I hope feeling don't get hurt. I think the best case scenario would be for McCain to lose the election and allow Sarah Governess-of-the-Hotness to go back and finish the rest of her term in Alaska.

That being said, the Obama-Biden ticket has problems of its very own...
