Fox News has confirmed that Alaska Governor is GOP presidential nominee John McCain’s pick for Vice President!  It looks like we called it, here at the Orange Juice Blog.

“A Republican source confirms that John McCain has chosen Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to be his running mate. Campaign officials, however, remain mum this morning,” according to the Chicago Tribune.

“Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, a self-styled “hockey mom” who has only been governor for a little over a year, is GOP Presidential candidate John McCain’s choice for Vice President,” according to CNBC.

Who is Sarah Palin?  Here is what the Tribune had to say about McCain’s VP nominee:

Palin is the first woman governor of Alaska, elected in 2006. She was also the youngest ever elected at the age of 42. She is the mother of five children, the youngest of whom was born in April and has Down’s Syndrome. She ran on a clean government platform in ’06 to defeat the incumbent Republican Governor Frank Murkowski.

I think this puts the McCain/Palin ticket over the top.
