Dear John McCain,
Do you really think we're dumb enough to vote for someone because their plumbing matches ours?
Not that I was voting for you anyhow, but, no love.
1, Sigh. I know, I know. There are folks who will do just f'ing that.

One person I know wrote a long post yesterday about how torn she was, now.
Sometimes I think I keep her on my friends list for the entertainment and education value even more than because their would be so much drama if I dropped her.

It's rediculous because she has zero experience. She was mayor of a small town, and now only governor for what, a year I think? If he died or became incapacitated we'd have a small-town mayor running the country just so he can "get the female vote".

Tokenism. You're doing it right.
I think the thing that makes me maddest at her (other than the anti-choice, anti-science, and anti-environmental stances) is the fact that she said that she would use the VP office to support Alaska and Alaskan issues. Hello? *National* office? Representing fifty states, not one?

Eh. As someone who disagrees with much of Palin's politics but still quite admires her, lemme say that it's not her plumbing that's a big deal to me. (I was never that taken with Hillary, for example.) She was a hockey mom, for crying out loud! And now she's a governor with an 80% approval rating. It's up there with Obama's story of black kid with single mom makes good, except that I resonate more with hers because I
female and not black. If I were black, I'd probably resonate more with Obama's story.
Also, she appears to have the courage of her convictions (at least re abortion), which impresses me way more than your typical right-winger "protect the family!"-adulterer (McCain, I'm looking at you! But also too many other politicians to name!), even if I don't agree with her.
