It looks official. John MCCain has chosen Alaska Governor Sarah Palin with 1.5 years of leadership experience as governor.

Wikipedia reports that she got a degree in journalism, then had a job as a sports reporter at an anchorage TV station. She served four years on the Wasilla city council. She went on to run for and become mayor of Wasilla (population 5,470) Alaska.

Her husband is a commercial fisherman and and a "world class snow machine racer.

Update: Info on Todd Palin, Alaska's First Man, Husband of Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin Interview: What does the VP do?

 

Here's the beginning of a profile on her. Help build it by adding your comments.

44 years old pro-life Catholic, lifetime NRA member

Governor since 2007, former mayor of

Charged with abuse of her power for firing the public safety commissioner because he refused to fire the man her sister was in a nasty divorce with. I'm guessing that the McCain camp will use this in her favor, arguing that even if it were true, she was protecting her sister from an abusive man.

One report suggests

"Attorney General Colberg said his office's review began after State Senator Hollis French was quoted in The Wall Street Journal about two weeks ago saying the governor could be impeached as a result of the probe. That raised questions about how impartial the Legislature's investigation was going to be, according to the governor's office. Colberg told KTUU it isn't witness tampering. The only problem is that if the worst case scenario happens, it will appear as if a potential defendant, the Palin Administration, was prepping potential witnesses.

Opinion: Sarah Palin could have saved herself a lot of grief if she had simply told us why she canned Walt Monegan last month instead of serving up some New Age Oprah-style drivel about "new energy" and "new direction". There seems to be a disturbing aura of New Age influence within the Palin Administration.

The tough part is trying to sort out how much smoke and how much fire there is to this mess. Personally, I don't get a sense that the Palin Administration is corrupt; instead, I think they're ignorant, naive, and parochial. Andrew Halcro has been reasonably fair about his pursuit of the problem"

Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
