First and foremost, Ms. Palin does not represent us. She
does not demonstrate or uphold our interests as American women.
It is presumed that the inclusion of a woman on the Republican
ticket could win over women voters. We want to disagree, publicly.
And this would be the women representing the left wing of the dems? Or the very liberal NOW?
Or the very small percentage of the electorate that identifies themselves as part of the extreme left Code Pink types?
To date, she is against sex education, birth control, the pro-
Choice platform, environmental protection, alternative energy development,
freedom of speech (as mayor she wanted to ban books and

Polar bears? That bitch!!!
Where do you silly people come up with this stuff?
One thing I've noticed about libs/progressives: you guys don't get out much. You are so busy talking to each other and reinforcing each other's viewpoints, you rarely allow yourself to hear the other side of an issue.
Expand your horizons a bit. Open your minds. Visit a board other than Ak2 (or kos or the DU or Huff) to see what else is going on in the real world.
Read the comments section at the end of an article at the Washington Post, for example. People are not falling in line with your way of thinking.
There's a reason McCain has broken out into a lead in the polls, and its growing...
