She has apparently inspired many in this nation. She has "energized the evangelicals." She has gained the support of more men than women. She has inspired me to be pissed off. She cites examples, such as her strong stance against the "bridge to nowhere," in order to show us how unselfish she is. What she doesn't cite is the fact that she supported it before she was Governor, and then once she "flip flopped," Alaska kept the money. She supports "abstinence only" education with no regard for the scientific studies that prove that "abstinence only" education does not lead to decreased rates of teen pregnancy. By the way, "the other kind of sex education" is effective in reducing teen pregnancy and STDs (which leads to less pregnancy, thus fewer abortions). She believes in "smaller government"-- the kind of government that should not interfere in our lives. But she thinks that the government should interfere in a woman's right to choose, or a school's right to choose to educate kids about condoms. She says she cares about the environment. But, she thinks we should be drilling more- with no mention of conserving, or creating more technology (which would create more jobs) that would help us use less energy. She thinks that Americans should be afraid of religious fundamentalists who are "fulfilling God's will" by plotting against Americans. I agree, of course. But I am actually just as scared that SHE thinks it's God's will is to help Alaska build a pipeline or invade Iraq. I think that God would be more inclined to support the people suffering from the genocide in Darfur-- oh wait, but there is no oil there, so maybe God doesn't care?? I doubt it. And, who makes Palin the authority on what God wants?
