You are the most dangerous people in society... and there are people like you on both sides of the spectrum. In your case, not an original thought in your head... just regurgitation of CNN and MSNBC mantra, with no desire to even confirm your story... and then trying to foist it on people who have a brain. Look what happened to Olbermann and Matthews for trying to pull off this garbage. By the way... I am a Jew and I am pro-choice.
Your moronic note:
1. "She is against Polar bears"
In her own words:
"Alaska has engaged in research and worked closely with the federal government to protect them. This includes enacting a ban on most hunting -- only Alaska Native subsistence families can hunt polar bears -- and taking habitat protection measures such as set-asides around known denning areas to prevent bear harassment. We are also participating in international efforts aimed at conserving polar bears worldwide."
2. She is against sex education and birth control"
In her own words: "I support sex education based on both abstinence and the teaching about contraception methods such as the use of condoms." She does not support some "explicit sex-ed programs for early grades, unlike Obama who supported the bill to include Kindegarten students in the sex education teaching. He denied he voted for it, until it was confirmed, and then he had to admit it.
3. As mayor she wanted to ban books and attempted to fire the librarian who stood against her
Obviously you are regurgitating an e-mail that has been circulating about the books "she banned." If you had bother to check with Snopes you would have found that not only is the e-mail false, no books were ever banned, and some of the books listed in the e-mail of this 1996 "event" had not even been published or printed yet.
I could go on... but anyone who you let read this (I'm sure no one will see it!) would get the idea.
The slap in the face to women is by you... to dismiss a woman who is principled, strong, and has accomplished much in a short time for her constituents (80% plus popularity in Alaska), just because you disagree with her on some issues... to denegrade her... makes you a part of what holds women back. Like the NOW Organization who dissed her... it's not about being "all you can be"... it was always about being a liberal.
Your candidade for President is so weak that her short career makes his look bad. A community organizer with crooked connections, who Bill Clinton said "uses the politics of a Chicago street thug," a state senator who's decisiveness led him to vote "present" more times than he would care to admit, and 140 plus days in the Senate before he ran for President... pathetic. How could you even compare this elitist empty suit extreme left wing candidate with a man like John McCain who has not only given his life to public service, but reached across the aisle many times to actually accomplish things? Something your candidate never did with his non waivering no compromise 100% liberal voting record?
As far as decision making... Obama, bypassing Hillary and her 18,000,000 votes, in favor of a hack like Biden, who yesterday admitted Hillary would have made a better candidate for VP, shows what kind of decision making he is capable of.
Back to Sarah. Her accomplishments and nomination are exactly what "our mothers and grandmothers and great-grandmothers so fiercely fought for." And remember, I don't agree with her on several key issues, but I respect a person who has a clear record of acting on their beliefs.
And don't worry. Roe vs. Wade won't be overturned. You'll still get to abort your Down Syndrome baby.
