Sarah Palin for VP? Read more REAL facts regarding the depth of her SHALLOWNESS!

Sarah Palin is VP choice - Get Mad.
August 29, 2008 by Emily

"I’m sure you’ve all heard the news that Sarah Palin is McCain’s VP choice. While this doesn’t make any sense to me and I am anticipating it backfiring on him (1.5 years as governor? You call that experience?), it’s still maddening, as she is anti-choice, anti-environment, anti-gay, and anti-everything that we work for. Here’s a fantastic petition on Care2 that sums it up nicely:

No Way, No How, No Sarah Palin!

John McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin shows how little he knows about women. In an attempt to woo the women vote, his selection shows how out of touch his platform and candidacy is with the issues that matter to women in this election.

Sarah Palin is anti-choice. Just like McCain, she opposes a woman’s right to choose. Sarah Palin has also stated her opposition to abortion even in cases of rape or incest.

Sarah Palin is a creationist. U.S. teenagers are trailing behind their peers from many industrialized countries in math and science. To truly compete in a global economy, we need leadership that will improve the quality of U.S. education. Yet Sarah Palin has supported creationism should be taught alongside evolution in the state’s public classrooms.

Sarah Palin opposes gay-marriage. Sarah Palin took office less than two years ago in Alaska, and by then the state was one of the first in the U.S. to pass a constitutional ban on gay marriage. But Sarah Palin has stated that she supported the 1998 constitutional amendment.

Sarah Palin is pro-drilling. Even though John McCain has opposed opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling in the past, his choice of Sarah Palin as VP shows how untrustworthy he is on protecting ANWR in the future. Sarah Palin has implored McCain to change his position against drilling in the Arctic, repeatedly pushing policies that benefit Big Oil and could make us even more dependent on foreign oil.

Sarah Palin is anti-environment. She’s responsible for approving a $400,000 state-funded propaganda campaign to justify Alaska’s barbaric wolf slaughter from the skies, and sued the federal government over the addition of polar bears to the Endangered Species list, arguing the designation would slow gas and oil development in the state. [addition by Emily - her husband is an oil tycoon! Now don't tell me that doesn't affect her desire for more and more drilling!]

Sarah Palin is embroiled in scandal. She’s currently under ethics investigation for abuse of power in Alaska: in late July, Alaska’s state legislature voted to hire an independent investigator to find out whether she tried to have a state official fire her ex-brother-in-law from his job as a state trooper. She has also refused to call for the resignation of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens despite his indictment for allegedly hiding gifts received from an oil firm.

Sounds like more of the same broken politics we’ve seen in the last eight years.

Sign this petition to send your “Dear John” message: Sarah Palin is the wrong choice for women for all the right reasons."

Thanks for making me MAD AS HELL:

It's a scary thing to see her potentially one breath away from the presidency, which she would be--McCain being the oldest president in US history. Ought to go over well with the neanderthals, but not those of us alive with a brain.

And on foreign policy, just wait to see her in a debate with Biden... that should be a kick. He can tear her to shreds.

Hi Leonardo--Wickedly funny picture!

She is a DaDO. (Disorganized and Ditzed Out.) Insult to thinking people everywhere.

That pic is GREAT!

She is terrifying as VP choice. As anything.

Yo tengo miedo.

Hi Leonardo--I left this link on cany's blog and I hope you won't mind if I leave it here too. Palin has a lot to answer for in her lack of concern for environmental issues. This is Obama's blog site for environmental issues:

The picture is fabulous, Leonardo. Artists and blogging go well together. ;-)

There's a whole bunch not to like about this woman, but what gets under my skin is her brutal attitude toward Alaskan wildlife. She doesn't give a hoot about the dying polar bear population, and, as mentioned in your piece, she favors the aerial slaughter of wolves and bears. What they do is, they fly low and chase these terrified animals for miles through the snow until they're exhausted and then pick them off. They've slaughtered entire wolf packs, pups and all.

When you learn more about her, the idea of Palin in power is truly scary. Check this out: Sarah Palin: Dominionist Stalking Horse. This is the nasty, evil version of Christianity, where it's okay to be openly dishonest with your fellow human beings and, of course, as Dominionism explains her nonchalance toward other life forms. I don't want someone like that a heartbeat away from the presidency.
