Apocalypse Now, Palin?

Given that Evangelicals, among whose numbers Sara Palin happily counts herself, believe that it’s perfectly OK to help God along with His plans (and that those who disagree don’t get a vote), Lauren Sandler poses a question that the cowards in the mainstream press have staunchly “overlooked.”

As Palin herself joked on Saturday Night Live, she hasn’t been taking questions. But in those rare attempts to discover what happens under that immovable updo, no one has asked the one I would most like to hear Sarah Palin answer –as she may still hover a melanoma away from holding the most important office on the planet, at one of the most crucial moments in world history. Does Sarah Palin think we are living in the End Times?

Trusting Governor Palin

I can see no good reason why Sarah Palin’s religious upbringing should clash with her performance as vice president.  Many previous candidates have been elected and served without their personal beliefs becoming an issue.  The question, then and now, was whether or not the office-holders would permit their personal issues to affect their adherence to the oath of office.

The presidency is different from any other job in the Federal government, in that there are few real checks and balances regarding matters such as these.  Continue reading

Do A Good Thing, And Send A Message To Sarah

Instead of us all sending around emails about how horrible she is, let’s
all make a donation to Planned Parenthood in Sarah Palin’s name.

And here’s the good part: when you make a donation to PP in her name,
they’ll send her a card telling her that the donation has been made in
her honor.

Here’s the link to the Planned Parenthood website:


You’ll need to fill in the address to let PP know where to send the ‘in Sarah Palin’s honor’ card. I suggest you use the address for the McCain campaign headquarters, which is:

c/o McCain for President
1235 S. Clark Street
1st Floor
Arlington , VA 22202

PS: make sure you use that link above or choose the pulldown of Donate–Honorary or Memorial Donations, not the regular ‘Donate Online’

Drill, Drill, Drill

Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues, is a well-known feminist.  She does not approve of Gov. Palin.

I don’t like raging at women. I am a Feminist and have spent my life trying to build community, help empower women and stop violence against them. It is hard to write about Sarah Palin. This is why the Sarah Palin choice was all the more insidious and cynical. The people who made this choice count on the goodness and solidarity of Feminists.
