Virginia Republicans Praise Palin

Anita Kumar

Virginia Republicans respond to Sen. John McCain's pick of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his vice president:

U.S. Rep. Thelma Drake, Virginia campaign honorary statewide co-chairwoman:
"Alaska Governor Sarah Palin represents an exciting and historic pick that changes the dynamic of this presidential race. During her tenure as Alaska's top executive, Palin has established a reputation as a reformer who achieves results. A mother of five, including one son who will be deployed to Iraq in September, Governor Palin is well-respected as a leading fiscal conservative. American women everywhere will respond well to her inspiring story and her willingness to shake up the status quo. The selection of Governor Sarah Palin as John McCain's running-mate underscores the point that this fall Republicans will run as the true party of reform."

Del. Christopher Saxman, Virginia campaign co-chairman:
"Governor Sarah Palin is an excellent choice for Vice President. Like John McCain, she is a maverick who has a strong record of accomplishment and the reputation to reach out to Republicans and Democrats to achieve real results. By choosing Sarah Palin, John McCain has sent strong message to Washington that a shake up in the status quo is imminent. Both John McCain and Sarah Palin understand the needs of Virginia's families when it comes to lower taxes, energy independence and national security. John McCain and Sarah Palin do not need any on-the-job training. They are ready to lead from day one."

Former Attorney General Jerry Kilgore, Virginia campaign co-chairman:
"With his selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, John McCain has demonstrated that this will indeed be a historic election. Governor Palin has a proven record as a reformer who gets results and will feel at home within a McCain administration. As a working mother of five and an experienced executive, Palin has a great story that will connect with working families. Virginians can feel confident that a McCain-Palin ticket will bring to the White House the experience and leadership necessary to address our nation's most pressing problems."

Shouldn't this be titled "McCain Campaign Officials Praise Palin"? I mean, yes, they *are* Republicans, but it's not like this is a spontaneous response from ordinary Republicans -- these people are all campaign co-chairs, and it would be shocking if they did anything *but* praise Palin. "Campaign officials in Virginia praise the campaign's actions" isn't news.

This is the change we need! Someone to roll up their sleeves and clean house! I love everything about her! Yes, I see pros and cons, but I think she's just perfect for us! And everyone else does too. The Dems/media are in a PANIC. Dig all you want...she's the answer for our country.

You go girl!
