McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin

First impressions count, and Alaska Gov. Sara Palin made a stunning first impression introducing herself as Republican John McCain’s choice for a vice presidential running mate yesterday. The McCain-Palin ticket should have Democratic counterparts Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. Joe Biden feeling unsettled, even if they can’t admit it. If they aren’t worried, they should be.
As to all this talk about her qualifications and judgement all one has to do is compare what Obama has spent doing, and whom he's associated with, for the last 20 years and what Palin has spent her time and with whom she's been associating during the same period of time. Case closed

John McCain's choice of Sarah Palin shows how little he knows about women. In an attempt to woo the women vote, his selection shows how out of touch his platform and candidacy is with the issues that matter to women in this election.

Sarah Palin is anti-choice. Just like McCain, she opposes a woman’s right to choose. Sarah Palin has also stated her opposition to abortion even in cases of rape or incest.

Sarah Palin is a creationist. U.S. teenagers are trailing behind their peers from many industrialized countries in math and science. To truly compete in a global economy, we need leadership that will improve the quality of U.S. education. Yet Sarah Palin has supported creationism, believing it should be taught alongside evolution in the state's public classrooms.

Sarah Palin opposes gay-marriage. Sarah Palin took office less than two years ago in Alaska, and by then the state was one of the first in the U.S. to pass a constitutional ban on gay marriage. But Sarah Palin has stated that she supported the 1998 constitutional amendment.

Sarah Palin is pro-drilling. Even though John McCain has opposed opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling in the past, his choice of Sarah Palin as VP shows how untrustworthy he is on protecting ANWR in the future. Sarah Palin has implored McCain to change his position against drilling in the Arctic, repeatedly pushing policies that benefit Big Oil and could make us even more dependent on foreign oil.

Sarah Palin is anti-environment. She's responsible for approving a $400,000 state-funded propaganda campaign to justify Alaska's barbaric wolf slaughter from the skies, and sued the federal government over the addition of polar bears to the Endangered Species list, arguing the designation would slow gas and oil development in the state.

Sarah Palin is embroiled in scandal. She's currently under ethics investigation for abuse of power in Alaska: in late July, Alaska's state legislature voted to hire an independent investigator to find out whether she tried to have a state official fire her ex-brother-in-law from his job as a state trooper. She has also refused to call for the resignation of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens despite his indictment for allegedly hiding gifts received from an oil firm.

Sounds like more of the same broken politics we've seen in the last eight years.
