On TV, on Fox, they are saying what they know is that Romney, Huckabee, and Pawlenty are out. [CORRECTED TEXT: I'd written "is up" for some strange reason.] Ah so, it's going to be a woman. I'm hearing this for the first time at 8:37 Central Time. I will reveal that, instantly, a chill ran through my body when I heard that, and I have broken a sob or two as I write this.She doesn't normally get this emotional about issues. So maybe the choice of Palin (if it is Palin) will be an effective one.
I have more thoughts on other Althouse comments from that same post, but I wanted to get this out there.
Edit: It is Palin! Althouse adds:
9:37: "MCCAIN PICKS SARAH PALIN." On the screen. Tears! Chills!!!!This could be a historically brilliant move. Or of course a blunder if enough people don't vote for McCain because a woman is on the ticket.
