Sarah Palin Who?*

Time is running out to keep LAist funded.
It's the FINAL DAY of our June Member Drive and we are behind on our goal to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Plus, your gift's impact will be twice as strong because it will be matched dollar for dollar!

As we were watching The Today Show this morning, trying to wake up, Matt Lauer came on live with a bit of an eye opener: Sen. John McCain, the Republican presumptive nominee for POTUSA, took a little bit of wind out of Democrats' sails this morning with the announcement that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has been picked as his running mate. Now we don't know a lot about the Alaska governor, but we do know that (a) she is 44 years old and a mother of five (b) conservative and (c) a former Miss Alaska runner up. More updates as they come. But what do you think? Shocking? Pandering for women's votes? Smart choice?

* 8 am: We've tried to access McCain's website, but it's a little busy right now.
