Maybe McCain got the idea of picking Palin from this

Maybe Senator John McCain got the idea of picking Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska as his running mate from this video. It's pretty funny.

And, it turns out that way back when she competed in the Miss Alaska beauty pageant after being selected as Miss Wasilla. She also won the Miss Congeniality award in Wasilla. Apparently she hasn't always been congenial since then; her Alaska political opponents call her Sarah Barracuda. She can probably go one on one with Barack Obama on a basketball court, she hunts, she fishes and she's married to a part Eskimo who's a union member and a champion snowmobile racer. Oh, one other thing, she returned to work three days after having their fifth kid. The Democrats will be making a big mistake if they underestimate this woman, especially since their presidential candidate isn't a lot more experienced than she is.

This 2006 newspaper article gives her whole history.

Thanks for the links to the article and the video. The article was very informative.

The video made me laugh. I thought it funny that the guy called her a "naughty librarian"; while I consider her to be a female Clark Kent. As soon as I saw her, I told my husband that she puts her hair up and her glasses on so that people stayed focused on her abilities.
