Why I think Sarah Palin is the Antichrist
Under that updo, I'm pretty sure you'll find horns, or at least 666 tatooed onto the back of her head.
This woman scares the estrogen out of me. Last night's interview with Charlie Gibson was chilling. A McCain/Palin presidency will most certainly keep us on an upward war trajectory. Her talk about Georgia joining NATO and a possible war against Russia coupled with her lack of understanding of the Bush Doctrine of preemptive attack is alarming, to say the least. If it walks like a hawk and quacks like a hawk, it's a hawk. And if you put liptstick on a pitbull, it's still a pitbull. (Excuse my intentional mixing of animal metaphors.)
My son is 11 years old. Will he be drafted in 7 years?
And Palin is no friend of women. This morning I read a little article on the back page of the Los Angeles Times about women being charged for rape kits in Wasilla during the four years Palin was mayor. This was a unique occurrence in Alaska, one that prompted the legislators to actually pass a law so that women would not have to be victimized a second time by paying $300 to $1,200 for the rape exam kit. (This was after the police department refused to stop charging, citing economics.) Palin was in charge. She could have taken this issue on and done the right thing, but she didn't.
This leads me to conclude that Wasilla is a backward town, with a backward mayor. Surely she isn't sophisticated enough to be the second in command of the most powerful nation on earth. To punish the victim a second time is abhorrent beyond words. How many rapes went unreported because the women couldn't afford to pay for the exam? What message was she sending to the women of the town? I'm not making this up, people.
Now, Sarah is a religious woman and so am I. She doesn't have a special channel to the Big Guy. Those of us who don't consider ourselves religious extremists deserve the right to be heard. So, God, if you're listening, and I know you are, please, I pray, save us from this Slim Pickens in drag riding bareback on the bomb.
(I can write this because we still have our right to free speech under the First Amendment to the Constitution. If Palin/McCain take office, we may not.)
One final note to those of you who think the office of the Vice President doesn't matter, according to Kids Discover magazine, the latest issue on the Presidency told me that 9 of our Vice Presidents have had to take over for the sitting President. According to my rudimentary math skills, that's almost a quarter of all Presidents.
