Another LTTE Who is Sarah Palin?
This weekly newspaper limited me to 300 words. Please feel free to use any of these thoughts in your own LTTE.


Who is Sarah Palin? Her nomination came like a sniper shot from nowhere, and Republican assurance that their private due diligence constitutes investigation is laughable. The vetting process is crucial when the primary candidate is 72 years old. Their cavalier attitude may be emblematic of another bums rush for the Whitehouse as conceived by Karl Rove.

Aside from the age and gender differences, I see few moderating distinctions between the Bush administration and this republican proposal. We know that Mc Cain voted with Bush 90% of the time during the past eight years, an indication of his presidency, but what if Palin outlives him?

President Palin would oppose abortion even in the case of rape or incest, believes that creationism should be taught in schools, does not believe humans affect global warming, actually sued the Bush administration for calling Polar Bears an endangered species, supported right-wing extremist Pat Buchanan for president in 2000, believes in a Big Oil First energy policy, supports the war, and she even received praise from Rush Limbaugh. This is not change.

Its odd when a candidate touts their religiosity on a platform of change. Frankly, I dont think anything new has come from religion since the Bronze Age. Change is not accepted within the evangelical realm unless it is to change someone else back to a 3000 year old sense of morality. A world where scientific inquiry was met with torture, where most sexual sins were punished by death, and when children were sold into slavery. A horrific return to the superstitious world where human sacrifice is rationalized into an expression of love for the purpose of placating an angry God is recidivism. It is not change.

Will the Alaskan Governors foreign policy simply be big oils wish list? It was. And, this is change?
