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. Hows that for executive experience ? She couldnt 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 didnt 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 didnt 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 Alaskas 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?
