The "Palin juggernaut," as Instapundit.com calls it, simply cannot be stopped. Yesterday, Gov. Palin was mentioned as a possible VP candidate in a news story from the Associated Press. Her potential as a national candidate was explained wonderfully by professor John J. Pitney Jr. , a political scientist at Claremont McKenna College, "The public stereotype of Republican is a wrinkled old guy taking cash under the table. One way for Republicans to break the stereotype is with a female reformer". Our own site was also listed as a web link at the end of the report.
The story was on the the Yahoo! News homepage for most of the day and was picked up by the websites of many media outlets including The New York Times, Fox News, Townhall.com, The Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune, The Detroit Free Press, The Charlotte Observer, and the Anchorage Daily News (where it was the lead story on the homepage for most of the day.)
As a result, we clocked 3,818 pageloads in 24 hours, smashing our previous record of 2,138 (which was set only two weeks ago). We also hit another milestone by recording our 20,000th pageload since launching in February.
The snowball is rolling, folks, and it's only going to get bigger. Thanks to everyone who has lent support to this movement. Without you, we would not be where we are today...realistically looking forward to Sarah Palin's inauguration as the 47th Vice President of the United States!
