John McCain just shocked America by choosing our governor and former Wasilla mayor as his Vice Presidential running mate.
All of a sudden, people all over the world are talking about Wasilla. They are even pronouncing it correctly. No more Waseea.
Almost everyone I met today is excited about her candidacy. Most of the people in this area voted for her as governor and still support her. I think she still has an approval rating in the high 80s.
Our home phone started ringing early this morning. Reporters were calling for my wife Grace who is a delegate to the Republican National Convention. She is in New York state visiting relatives before heading for Minneapolis tomorrow for the convention.
I’m not sure how this is going to change our little community. Wasilla is already one of the fastest growing communities in Alaska. I guess we will wait and see.
Until then…GO SARAH.
