Sarah Palin

with one comment

I have a lot of thoughts on the issue of Sarah Palin being picked by McCain as his running mate.  The one thing that does scream out at me is that this is a sad attempt to rope in what people are calling the “angry Hillary supporters.”  I think this is just a cheap ploy to gain votes among the female constituents, but I am truly offended by this act.  Sarah Palin is very anti-Choice, anti-gay rights, and anti-anything that speaks of people who are not just like her having any kind of freedoms and rights, and by McCain appointing her (because she’s basically a carbon copy of his beliefs) I’m offended that he would think I would be stupid enough not to do my own research on this woman and come to my own conclusions as opposed to voting for someone simply because he had a female running mate.  I would also hope that the rest of the nation can see the ploy for what it is: a trompe d’oeil, an illusion at bringing women closer to “breaking through the 18 million cracks” when in truth it’s the beginning steps necessary to replace the glass with a newer, stronger pane.

  1. Wow, amazing what a poor choice this is!

    I thought McCain had more intelligence than to pick Palin.
    Frankly, I am embarrassed for the GOP.
    I mean, is that the best they can come up with?
    What happened to the great right-wing think tanks?

    It’s like McCain torpedoed his own ship.
    Here’s a 72 year-old fellow who chooses a gal with no
    foreign policy experience, and she is one heart-beat away from
    being THE person that would have to go toe to toe with the
    likes of Putin, Ahmadinejad, Kim Il Sung.
    She is essentially a PTA lady from a town of 9000.

    Well, at least it ensures the GOP will carry Alaska.
    Oh, wait, that’s already a red state.
