The More We Learn About Sarah Palin…

The scarier she becomes. Forget for a second her extreme lack of experience and instead focus on her positions and her history. Sarah Palin is a “wingnut” - an extreme far right wing politician who will appeal to no one but the Pat Robertson wing of the Republican party when her positions and her history become more well known.

Sarah Palin Facts

+ The car wash that Palin and her husband ran was shut down last year due to failing to comply with state regulations. How’s that for “executive experience” ? She couldn’t even run a car wash without it getting shut down.

+ She has belonged to an extremist church for most of her life whose pastor said in 2004 that anyone who criticizes George W. Bush will be sent to hell.

+ Palin was for “the bridge to nowhere” before she was against it. She lied about this in her VP acceptance speech last Friday. Will she lie about it again tonight?

+ She is anti-choice even in cases of incest & rape.

+ As mayor of the small town of Wasilla, Alaska; Palin asked a librarian about how she could go about having books at the library burned. When the librarian didn’t co-operate she threatened to have her fired. An early example of Palin willingness to abuse her power. Troopergate is a current example of that Dick Cheny-esque abuse of power mentality that Sarah Palin has.

+ Sarah Palin didn’t get a passport until 2007. An actual GOP talking point is that she has “foreign policy experience” because Alaska is the state closest to Russia. I suppose by that logic she also has “space experience” because Alaska’s Mount McKinley is the highest point in America.

+ Sarah Palin sought many millions of dollars worth of earmarks as Mayor of the small town of Wasilla, Alaska and as Governor of Alaska. John McCain himself objected to some of those earmarks. Is this the kind of “reform” that McCain is talking about?

2. No one ever compares her with other Governors
We haven't even compared her records against other Governors
I mean Arnold has almost 36 million more people to govern!
Perry has almost 26 million more....
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_by_pop ...

She has the population density of 1.2 people per square mile!
D.C. has 9,644.1 per square mile!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_by_pop ...

1 person every mile, hell I could handle that!!

4. What is the difference between seeking an abortion and intentionally engaging in deliberate conduct
Edited on Wed Sep-03-08 11:16 AM by Stop Cornyn
which is highly threatening to a fetus's viability?

Why is one "murder" in Sarah's eyes and the other OK in her eyes?

5. I think she is an awful person...
opportunistic, deceitful, corrupt, crazy, and definitely not up for mother of the year. Her daughter is suffering because mommy wants to pretend to be a real statesman! Disgusting :puke:
