   McCain woos Miley during his VP vetting process
Memo Reveals Miley Cyrus As Original McCain VP Pick

ST. PAUL, Minn. (CAP) – CAP News has learned that Republican nominee John McCain settled on 44-year-old Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his vice presidential choice only after aides reluctantly informed him that his first choice for running mate – teen star Miley Cyrus – was constitutionally ineligble for the job.

“He wanted a female and someone very, very, very young,” a Republican strategist sighed. “I think he’s courting the youth vote. And the women vote. Actually, I don’t know what he’s thinking these days. He gets easily tired, you know.”

McCain was reportedly most concerned that Democratic nominee Barack Obama was ahead in polls in Montana and thought someone named after the state would help him win Montana’s three electoral votes.

He was then informed that Hannah Montana is not the real name of the Disney actress.

Unable to lure the Hillary Clinton vote with a Cyrus selection – and after being told that is would be “awkward” to pick one of the stars from Sex And The City while Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman were “kind of big Barack fans” – McCain chose the completely unknown Palin.
