Palin & Hillary are opposites
September 6, 2008
McCain picks Palin! Why on earth would he pick someone so unqualified and put her one heartbeat away from the presidency?
She is a former beauty queen. She sued the Bush administration for listing polar bears as an endangered species. She doesn’t think humans are responsible for global warming. She wants to teach creationism as part of the science curriculum. She opposes abortion, even in the case of incest or rape. She served one term as mayor of an Alaskan city of fewer than 7,000 people and is in her second year as governor of Alaska. She does not own a passport and has never been out of the country, and she is under investigation for dismissing state employees for partisan reasons.
Did McCain choose her because he thinks disaffected Hillary supporters will now vote for her because she is a woman? Wrong! Palin is opposed to everything Hillary stands for. Did he choose her to secure the evangelical and right-wing vote? Perhaps. The right wing of the Republican Party is jubilant at her choice. It is a puzzlement!
