The NRCC Wants to Know What I Think About Sarah Palin
This morning I received an email from the National Republican Congressional Committee (the NRCC). The email asks for my opinion of Gov. Palin. So, on a lark, I clicked on the link. The website asks visitors to "Tell us why Sarah Palin was a great pick for Vice-President". Here's my answer:
Great pick? You must be joking. Gov. Palin is completely unqualified to be Vice President. I cannot possibly think of supporting someone who is interested in banning books, who does not believe in the separation of church and state and who believes that the earth is less than 7,000 years old, who does not believe that global warming is a man made threat, who believes that the "end of days" are nearly upon us and would allow biblical prophecy to influence her judgment, who would not give a woman the right to choose, even in the case of rape or incest, who cannot even acknowledge that she repeats lies even after the fallacy of her statements is demonstrated, who uses her public position to enact private vendettas and then puts roadblocks in the way of the legal process examining her actions. No, you won't hear me saying that Sarah Palin is a great pick for Vice President.
Gov. Palin's selection demonstrates how poor a President Sen. McCain would make; if this is an example of his judgment, then I certainly hope that we never need to rely upon his judgment for any important decisions.
I'll be voting for Sen. Obama in November. If you care about our country, I hope you will, too.
I suspect that isn't want the National Republican Congressional Committee wanted to hear. But they did ask...
