The word is out that John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate as part of god's plan. Holy mackerel.
WASHINGTON - Sarah Palin said Sen. John McCain chose her to be his running mate in 2008 because of "God's plan," according to a top political strategist in the campaign. In an interview with the CBS newsmagazine "60 Minutes," Steve Schmidt described Palin as "very calm" after McCain met with her at his Arizona ranch just before putting her on the Republican ticket. McCain had planned to name Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., as his vice presidential choice until word leaked, sparking what Schmidt called political blowback over picking the 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee. Schmidt said he asked Palin about her serenity in the face of becoming "one of the most famous people in the world." He quoted her as saying, "It's God's plan."
