I picked one heck of a week to take a vacation, as McCain has now become the presumptive nominee and the veepstakes has officially begun, and today I found that we have succeeded in our quest to insert Gov. Palin into the top tier of the veepstakes. Here's a brief rundown of our success in the last few days.
1. Ace of Spades, a MAJOR player in the conservative blogosphere, has posted in favor a Palin nomination and linked our blog.
2. Instapundit has once again mentioned a possible Palin nomination.
3. WeeklyStandard.com has suggested Palin not once, but twice for the VP nomination.
4. And here's the big one: Governor Palin is running THIRD (tied) in RealClearPolitics' "Veepstakes!" Only Condoleeza Rice and J.C. Watts recieved more mentions, and Colin Powell had to settle for a tie with Sarah. Other major contenders left in Palin's dust include Mike Huckabee, Fred Thompson, Rudy Giuliani, Michael Steele, Bobby Jindal, Charlie Crist, and Kay Bailey Hutchison.
I have an extremely busy day tomorrow here at CPAC, but I will see what I can do to keep you abreast of any new developments. Congratulations! We did it!
