Rachel Maddow calls it for what is is..
I believe that the McCain/Palin ticket is one of the most dangerous choices of my lifetime, and should this country chose those candidates the fall-out may be so great, the destruction so vast in so many areas that America may never recover. But what is equally disturbing is the impact that duo would have on the rest of the world. Unfortunately, this is not a joke. In my lifetime I have seen the clownish, the inept, the bizarre be elected to the presidency with regularity.

Sarah Palin does not believe in evolution. I take this as a metaphor. In her world and the world of Fundamentalists nothing changes or gets better or evolves. She does not believe in global warming. The melting of the arctic, the storms that are destroying our cities, the pollution and rise of cancers, are all part of God's plan. She is fighting to take the polar bears off the endangered species list. The earth, in Palin's view, is here to be taken and plundered. The wolves and the bears are here to be shot and plundered. The oil is here to be taken and plundered. Iraq is here to be taken and plundered. As she said herself of the Iraqi war, "It was a task from God."

Sarah Palin does not believe in abortion. She does not believe women who are raped and incested and ripped open against their will should have a right to determine whether they have their rapist's baby or not.

She obviously does not believe in sex education or birth control. I imagine her daughter was practicing abstinence and we know how many babies that makes.

Sarah Palin does not much believe in thinking. From what I gather she has tried to ban books from the library, has a tendency to dispense with people who think independently. She cannot tolerate an environment of ambiguity and difference. This is a woman who could and might very well be the next president of the United States. She would govern one of the most diverse populations on the earth.I write to my sisters. I write because I believe we hold this election in our hands. This vote is a vote that will determine the future not just of the U.S., but of the planet. It will determine whether we create policies to save the earth or make it forever uninhabitable for humans. It will determine whether we move towards dialogue and diplomacy in the world or whether we escalate violence through invasion, undermining and attack. It will determine whether we go for oil, strip mining, coal burning or invest our money in alternatives that will free us from dependency and destruction. It will determine if money gets spent on education and healthcare or whether we build more and more methods of killing. It will determine whether America is a free open tolerant society or a closed place of fear, fundamentalism and aggression.

Can't spell Palin without 'pain'.


`the addition of Sarah Palin to the Republican ticket just confirms that McCain intends to continue the failed policies of George W. Bush. The similarities between Bush and Palin are striking -- Bush champions drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, so does Palin. George Bush thinks he's on a mission from God in the Iraq war, Palin believes the war is a "Task from God". George Bush doesn't think global warming is caused by Man, neither does Sarah Palin. George Bush has consistently pushed for abstinence-only education programs, just like Sarah Palin. After his term is over, George Bush will have left the country with hundreds of billions of dollars more debt than we had when he was elected. When her term as mayor of Wasilla was over, Sarah Palin had left her previously debt-free town of 6000 with $20 million in debt. Bush's speechwriter even wrote Palin's RNC address. America can't afford four more years of Bush and Palin's failed policies.`
