University of Colorado Sophmore Put Sarah Palin On The VP Map

Adam Brickley, who on his blog profile lists his interests as "politics, Zionism, and 'fighting socialism'," may be largely responsible for getting Sarah Palin on the Republican ticket.

Brickely started a "Draft Sarah Palin for Vice President" blog last year and, according to the Anchorage Daily News, has relentlessly promoted the idea ever since.

The Daily News continues:

Brickley has never been to Alaska or met Palin. But while researching potential vice presidents, he stumbled on Palin and thought she would be a good No. 2 to just about all of the major Republican candidates in the race at the time. …The "Draft Palin" movement picked up momentum in more mainstream media, including a column last summer by Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard.

Others followed, including talk over the past couple weeks from conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

According to Brickley's blog, tonight:

Just so that you all know, I did receive a brief phone call tonight from Todd and Sarah Palin. Thanks to them for being so kind.
