So McCain has chosen Sarah Palin as his running mate.

I am beyond disgusted. Not only is she a disgrace to all women, but she also spits in the face of the environment. If McCain really wanted to pick someone who would ensure that Bush's destructive environmental and anti-human rights policies were promoted and continued, he could not have made a better choice.

I am scared.

Now, off to donate even more to Planned Parenthood, Defenders of Wildlife, and the World Wildlife Fund.

yeah - i did find it interesting that on the one hand she won't and doesn't cave to the oil/gas lobby, but on the other hand, she tends to do what they want anyways...

I am not scared. The fact that she is female won't swing any Hillary supporters over to the McCain side of things, and she is more likely to put off the religious right than win them over. Sure, she's the mother of 5 and does walk her talk when it comes to anti-abortion, but many conservatives don't think that a mother of 5 who has a 4 months old special needs baby has any business being in elected office.

I think that Sean is right when he says that McCain made the best pick out of a bad pool of candidates. I don't think she will win over many people who weren't going to vote for him anyway, and I think given the choice, the people on the fence will be turned off.

I sure hope you guys are right. I would hate to see her get her way in the white house with some of her destructive policies. And yes, I agree that most Hillary supporters will not be swayed just because of genetics. After all, I don't think most of them are Condi supporters!
