Sarah Palin's got the gay Republican vote sewn up

Check out McCain running-mate Sarah Palin's husband, Todd. He's a commercial fisherman who works in the oil industry on Alaska's North Slope in the off-season, and he's a world champion snowmobile racer. This race just heated up.

UPDATE: Check out Sarah Palin - diva for gay Republicans? from GayPatriot; It's a good day for gay Republicans from Andrew Sullivan; I've hopped the fence from Cake or Death; Oh. My. Gawd. from Right Side of the Rainbow

UPDATE: Todd Palin is a native Inuit. From Ace of Spades:
Her husband, Todd, is a Native Yup'ik Eskimo.[5] Outside the fishing season, Todd works for BP at an oil field on Alaska's North Slope[6] and is a champion snowmobiler, winning the 2000-mile "Iron Dog" race four times.[5] The two eloped shortly after Palin graduated from college; when they learned they needed witnesses for the civil ceremony, they recruited two residents from the old-age home down the street.[5] The Palin family lives in Wasilla, about 40 miles (64 km) north of Anchorage.[7]
