Palin was the best choice for McCain, I don’t think he’ll regret it. That photo is from video footage from when she visited troops in Iraq not too long ago, that would make the carbine she is posing with a M4, not that it really matters…
Hell she’s not SUPPOSED to have the brass ones, but it seems that she has a pair at the ready, and uses them often.
I said that if mccain picked Palin for veep, I would cast my vote for that duo, so they have my vote.
The problem with that picture is that it is actually not a functioning M-4. It is a training weapon that fires nothing more than a laser beam. If you look at the video, you’ll see two cables that fall from the hand guards. One is compressed air that simulates the kick when the simulator is fired and the other is a data cable. This system is used to train soldiers, but it does not fire anything. Not saying she isn’t into guns, just want to put the truth out about this “gun” before someone slimes her over it.
