Is Sarah Palin Really America's Hottest Governor?


With John McCain’s pick of Sarah Palin as his running mate, much focus will be paid to her physical attractiveness. Alaska Magazine named her America’s Sexiest Governor, but Esquire called Baltimore's Martin O'Malley "the best young mayor in America" even before he ran for state office. I am going to show some Maryland pride and insist that our own Governor Muscle Shirt not get neglected. Let's compare the two:

GovernorMartin O’Malley
Maryland (D)
Sarah Palin
Alaska (R)

Age
45
44

Children
Grace, Tara, William, and Jack

Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper and Trig (not pictured)

Notable
Avocation

Irish Folk-Rock Band Leader

High School Basketball Star (#22)

Vice
Presidential
Hopes

Dashed when Hillary Clinton failed to get nominated.
Dependent on a 72-year-old maverick war hero.


McCain has clearly gone for the game-changing Hail Mary pass with his pick. Palin is an unknown quantity of Quayle-esque proportions. Only time will tell if it is a gambit that will succeed. In the meantime, O'Malley is waiting in the wings to march into the breech if needed.

We were all shocked when we heard about this this morning.

"Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper and Trig"?!? What - they chose random nouns for their kids' names? "Track"? "Trig"?!? Does he have a cousin, Al Gebra?

elizabeth,
I would love to hear a real Alaskan reaction to our next Veep.

2fs,
Best joke about the names I saw asked if she was naming kids or sled-dogs.

Ya, even Alaskans think the names of her kids are a little out there. People in Juneau are a little ticked at her because she doesn't live here and stay in the governor's mansion. I mean we are the state capitol and we are also very insecure about it. There is a big movement to move the capitol somewhere more accessible (meaning Anchorage). So when she decided not to live here, Juneauites freaked a little. But she was here with her new son at the high school football game last weekend, so it was nice to see her in town.
I really like her. I feel she's ethical and really wants to do the best for Alaskans. She agrees that Alaska should not be the lower 48's National Park and should be allowed to develop our resources. I don't know how she'd be as a VP, but she's a great Governor!
