Palin is McCain’s VP pick

Multiple news organizations are citing Republican sources that confirm Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska will be named this afternoon as John McCain’s running mate.

The news broke just as a cramped jet filled with weary participants from the Democratic National Convention landed in Minneapolis. Nearby St. Paul, Minn., is the site of the Republican National Convention starting Monday.

Palin took office as Alaska governor in 2006.

It was a surprise pick for McCain. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge were all considered to be on the vice-presidential “short list.”

It’s safe to say Arkansas Republicans don’t know much about their apparent vice presidential nominee from the Land of the Midnight Sun.
