There's something about Palin

Man alive! This women has stirred things up. Personally, I don't care about her pregnant daughter or her new born. Those are her parenting issues that don't involve me. What I do care about are her politics. Which are terrifying to me, and in no way make McCain a friendlier candidate.
Palin is pro-life, and with aging court justices, this incoming administration will doubtlessly have an opportunity to get control of the court and over turn Roe vs Wade. Then 17 year olds (like Bristol) won't get a choice. I hope the gov't is ready to pick up the bill for all these kids having kids. Lots of them will be kicked out of their homes and forced to rely on the state for medical, and without proper prenatal care I'm sure the complications will be plentiful as well as birth defects. They thought they had a welfare problem now, just wait.
The up side of Ms. Palin is that it should finally make republicans look at their "Family Values" Palin has so many contradictions for her party. She is a working women in a party that just about crucified Hillary for her "stay home and bake cookies" comment, Her 17 year old daughter is pregnant while Palin preaches abstinence, She is also a mother of 5 include a down syndrome 5 month old who she will not be spend much time with if she becomes VP. All she needs now is one of her kids to come out of the closet, though that didn't seem to help much with the Cheney's.
I don't really have a problem with any of these things, but I'm a democrat and a liberal one at that. I'm hoping they lose, but that the republican constituents eyes are opened a bit to the feminist agenda.
