Hypocrisy, now, from the Republican presidential candidate. Thought we only got that from the Bush Administration!

McCain has touted his experience over Obama’s supposed inexperience since it was clear Obama was a force to be reckoned.

So now he picks Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin as his VP choice. No Washington experience….not much experience at all, frankly. Hell, she won’t even live in the capital, Juneau. Governor of a state that’s under investigation, I guess she looks better than her predecessor.

Gee, that’s just the kind of comparison I’d want to see for my VP choice: The previous governor was very corrupt.

Oh – she’s been a Mayor. Mayor of a town with less than 6,000 people (Wasilla, pop. 5,470). Think Polson (5,046) or Lewistown (5,945).

Palin will be one heartbeat away from the Presidency, and McCain will be 77 in 2012.

Sara Palin will appeal to all, it seems: She looks like an Oprah audience member, she’s the right gender for 51% of the U.S. population and she’s a former beauty queen. Something for everyone, I guess.

Guess we won’t be hearing much about experience anymore.

It was news when Obama’s daughter turned 10 back on July 4th, in Butte – but it seems Republican Presidential candidate John McCain is trying to deflect any stories about his 72nd birthday by announcing Governor Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential pick.

Now, why would Republicans try and ignore their chosen one’s birthday? Shouldn’t they be grabbing up all that feel-good press? Seems cruel to me. You’d think there’d be a big old (no pun intended) cake…with 72 candles…and silly hats and a birthday song. Right?

Maybe it’s something they’re gonna do behind closed doors.

BWAM and several local groups including the Missoula Institute for Sustainable Transportation (MIST), Mountain Bike Missoula, and Missoula in Motion have come together to plan a family-friendly festival in celebration of non-motorized transportation.

The event starts at noon, at Caras Park, and goes until 8 p.m. A great kick-off to what is going to be a fabulous Labor Day weekend.

There will be a local contingent of food and beverage vendors, live music, local bike and walk organization exhibits, the Safety Team, and a variety of performers that together will provide an all-day fun-time festival atmosphere.

There are, in fact, looking for additional talented folks that might be able to add to the entertainment. If you can help out, shoot an email over to Erin at
