Gov. Palin in a Nutshell

I'll add cites to this tomorrow:

Gov. Palin is an evangelical christian (read: doesn't believe in evolution), has never been to Washington, has been a governor for only 2 years and who recently described herself as "just an average hockey mom."

Palin is purported to help McCain because she's weaker on environmental protection than he is (which evidently appeases the republican party?!?!?!?!). In fact, she has *strongly* advocated drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Ralph Reed, the former head of the Christian Coalition, said of Palin “It is almost impossible to exaggerate how important that is to the conservative faith community.”

Palin holds a lifetime membership with the National Rifle Association, is a former Miss Alaska pageant contestant, advocated an Alaska death penalty law, and believes marriage is "between a man and a woman."

McCain described her as the candidate who would best “best help me shake up Washington.’’

Other than the fact that Palin has a vagina, I don't see anything about her that could make anything in Washington any different than it already is.

Yes, I supported Hillary Clinton to the end and yes, part of the reason I did it was because she's a woman. But Palin ain't much of a sister as far as I'm concerned, so she'll be going it without any support from me.
