Ladies and gentlemen, The Governor is in the house.
Sarah Palin, Alaska's governor but John McCain's new vice presidential partner, has arrived in St. Paul for the abbreviated Republican National Convention where the selection of the relatively unknown 44-year-old mother of five has energized thousands of Republicans gathered for the GOP's first nomination of a female national candidate since its founding in 1854.
Palin has no public events penciled in for today. But the presidential nominee's wife and sons are scheduled to have breakfast with the delegation of the possibly about-to-be storm-battered state of Louisiana. And wouldn't that be a swell time to bring along a surprise guest for a formal introduction?
