If I hear one more person say...

..."if you're against Sarah Palin you're sexist, against all women, blah blah blah", I swear to God I will jump out of a window. I'm against her because of her EXTREME right wing views. I could care less that she's a working mother, blah blah blah. She is against gay rights and ALL abortions. She belongs to a church that believes non-Bush supporters are going to hell (I'll post a youtube link later). I'm against her because I think she is unqualified to be Vice President. I think she was a poor choice. McCain should have picked a different woman if he so desperately wanted one on his ticket. There were plenty out there. There were even some who just might have convinced me to vote for them.

I'm glad her daughter seems to have support regarding her pregnancy. I think it's sad that a teen is having a baby, but Bristol is lucky to have a family who is backing her. Unfortunately, many teen mothers do NOT have that support, and I wish these pro-lifers making the Palin family into heroes would understand that.

My vote goes to Obama/Biden. Nothing is going to change that, and calling me anti-woman or anti-family values (insert big roll eyes here) will only convince me more that I'm making the right choice.

Yes, yes, and so much more WORD.

It's the same parade of garbage in yet another election season, just from another direction, and that is indeed insulting and sad--as well as grating to watch people buy into it.

Was it also interesting to hear Palin say, "I'm glad [Bristol] has chosen to keep the baby." --Um, were it up to Palin, her little Bristol would have no choice. What a putz and a hypocrite.

I'm an Independent, proudly middle-of-the-way. But Palin's spew sends me swan diving into the far left pool with a smile on my face and a song in my heart. Scary woman--and it shows some certain desperation on McCain's part. I wasn't close to voting for him, anyway, but indeed, he could have done much, much better.

S'mores, anyone? :^D

*brings graham crackers and chocolate* Wheeeeeee!


She was so vicious last night. She's being called Palin the Pit Bull. Stupid nickname, if you ask me. People will call her a bitch. :p

Well, hell, that ticks me off, too. Pitties are nice dogs! It''s the asshole people who abuse and misbreed/mistrain them that turn them vicious.

--But of course, that says a lot, too.

So very much on the right side is black and white. If we pick Palin, we'll get the Hillary votes (they want a woman! Let's give them what they want!); if you are pro-choice, you are for abortion; if you are against Palin, you are sexist.

There's so much more to all of these issues, and that black-and-white - which is some completely unrealistic - just doesn't do it for me.

I'm not happy with Obama's ideas about raising taxes. At the same time, working for government - I want bigger government (it means job security for me), I want more money in my pay check (more taxes means they might pay govt workers more).

If this is what the Republicans are going to offer - someone who wants smaller govt, is against rights for the people, and tries to paint the world black-and-white (and instill fear in people), then I want no part of that.

Obama ain't perfect, that's for sure, but he is better than the alternative. And I believe he is a smart man capable of choosing good staff WHEN he is elected. He doesn't need "executive" experience. That comes with the job, and from the people he surrounds himself with!

I *hate* picking someone because the other person is worse. *sigh*

I've voted in 4 Presidential elections, and I haven't voted in a candidate yet. Maybe this year...

Anyone who flames you is a moron living in NANA land, it's funny that if the Democrat VP had a 17 pregnant 17 year old daughter we would hear nothing but how she is a whore and how her parents are awful human beings.

One good thing to remember is this crap will only play well in sates that were already going Red, not in places where common sense might have a chance ;)
