What Was I Saying About Names?

John McCain has chosen Sarah Palin to be his Vice Presidential running-mate. (If you just said, "who?", then join the crowd). I haven't looked up any of her qualifications, so I can't pontificate on whether or not she is a worthy choice. But I did find out that she is the mother of 5 children - Track, Trig, Bristol, Willow, and Piper. Hopefully she has more political sense than baby-naming sense.

Her youngest child, Trig, is just four months old! Can you imagine running around the country campaigning for the presidency with a four-month old on your hip? I have nothing against working mothers, but I certainly wouldn't want to be in her shoes. Or her kids' shoes, because then my name would be something like Bristol.

...and Trig has Down syndrome. Busy! Fortunately, the VP job isn't very hard job. :)
