Palin-what a gal!

    • Palin wants to teach creationism in public schools. She hasn't made clear whether she thinks evolution is a fact.
    • Palin doesn't believe that humans contribute to global warming. Speaking about climate change, she said, "I'm not one though who would attribute it to being manmade." 
    • Palin has close ties to Big Oil. Her inauguration was even sponsored by BP. 
    • Palin is extremely anti-choice. She doesn't even support abortion in the case of rape or incest. 
    • Palin opposes comprehensive sex-ed in public schools. She's said she will only support abstinence-only approaches. 
    • As mayor, Palin tried to ban books from the library. Palin asked the library how she might go about banning books because some had inappropriate language in them—shocking the librarian, Mary Ellen Baker. According to Time, "news reports from the time show that Palin had threatened to fire Baker for not giving "full support" to the mayor." 
    • She DID support the Bridge to Nowhere (before she opposed it). Palin claimed that she said "thanks, but no thanks" to the infamous Bridge to Nowhere. But in 2006, Palin supported the project repeatedly, saying that Alaska should take advantage of earmarks "while our congressional delegation is in a strong position to assist."
          • Palin recently said that the war in Iraq is "God's task." She's even admitted she hasn't thought about the war much—just last year she was quoted saying, "I've been so focused on state government, I haven't really focused much on the war in Iraq." 
          • Palin has actively sought the support of the fringe Alaska Independence Party. Six months ago, Palin told members of the group—who advocate for a vote on secession from the union—to "keep up the good work" and "wished the party luck on what she called its 'inspiring convention.'"

Yeah, and this is the woman who is supose to win over the Hillary contingent and the independents, I think she will prove to be one of McCain's biggest mistakes, or so I hope.

According to a waitress quoted in the L.A. Progressive, after Obama beat Hillary, Palin said to dinner companions "So Sambo beat the bitch!”

That woman scares the shit out of me. And it also scares me how much McCain is pandering to the Christian right wing. Um, hello - there's supposed to be separation of church and state in this country!
