A Groundbreaking Presidential Election (But Not For The Reasons You Think)

With the delegates at the Republican National Convention officially making John McCain and Sarah Palin their nominees for president and vice-president, we are guaranteed that, no matter who is elected, it will be a groundbreaking first.

Nah, not the minority/woman stuff. That’s been talked to death, and even if it hasn’t been, it’s a little heavy for this site.

What I’m talking about is that, for the first time ever, the president or vice-president will not be from the continental forty-eight states.  In Barack Obama, we may have our first Hawaiian president, and in Sarah Palin, we may have our first Alaskan vice-president.

To celebrate this groundbreaking moment, here are a couple of songs.

In honor of Barack Obama and the great state of Hawaii, the ever-cool Ventures with “Hawaii Five-O”:

(I think it would have been awesome if he had walked out to this song when giving his convention speech.  It’s ideas like that which are why I should make several million dollars a year as a political consultant.)

In honor of Sarah Palin and the great state of Alaska, the also eternally cool Johnny Horton with “North to Alaska”:

Johnny Horton of course also did “When It’s Springtime in Alaska (It’s Forty Below),” but that song’s kind of a downer.

(I couldn’t bring myself to use this video.  Alex, I expect you at a minimum to click the link.)

Congratulations to the proud citizens of our 49th and 50th states!  Here are more songs related to Alaska and Hawaii.

    How do guns as big as steers fire shells as big as trees? I never figured that out. Either big-ass steers or very small trees.
