John McCain has chosen Alaska’s governor as his running mate.

We learn this from the woman who is checking us in for our cruise, who – although professing to dislike the governor – is nearly giddy with excitement.

Apparently this news is as unexpected by most Alaskans as it is to us. (Actually, I thought our Governor was supposed to be the nominee and I suspect he is having a very, very bad day.) I only know who the governor of Alaska is because the one newspaper I have read since arriving here had a story about a scandal involving her firing her ex-brother-in-law . . . a story that ran next to a piece on Senator Stevens’ troubles. Is the nation really ready for Alaskan-style politics?

On the other hand, she sounds a lot more interesting than McCain.
