"She is popular with GOP conservatives because she is a deeply religious Christian, is a hunter who supports gun rights, and has a strong antiabortion record.... opposes stem cell research, physician-assisted suicide, and state health benefits for same-sex partners."
Go ahead and vote for her then, Clintonistas!
Oh, and this is for the conservatives who love her:
"A year after graduating from college, she eloped with Todd Palin, her high school sweetheart, and was married in a civil ceremony."
EXCUSE ME? A "CIVIL" ceremony?!
This DEEPLY RELIGIOUS WOMAN was married in a CIVIL ceremony?
And she wants to DENY HEALTH BENEFITS to gay people?!?
"McCain surprises with VP pick; Palin, first woman on a GOP ticket, is hailed as a reformer, but readiness at issue" by Michael Kranish, Globe Staff | August 30, 2008
DAYTON, Ohio - In picking a little-known, 44-year-old, first term governor with scant foreign policy experience, McCain immediately faced questions about whether she would be qualified to occupy the Oval Office if something happened to McCain, who turned 72 yesterday.
More than just that question, too. Did you see my link at top, readers?
Aides said he made his decision based on his gut.
Oh, no, those are the worst kind! That's a BUSH CHARACTERISTIC!!!!
The Obama campaign immediately cast the choice of Palin as a mistake by McCain and a boon for the Democratic ticket, asserting that "McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency."
Obama, himself, later softened the reaction, telling reporters in Pennsylvania that he had called to congratulate Palin and calling her "a compelling person" whose selection was "one more indicator of this country moving forward."
Translation: You CAN VOTE FOR HER, feminists and Hillary women.
This statement by Obama confirms that AmeriKan politics is nothing but shit fooleys!!!!
McCain hopes the selection of Palin will limit any boost in support for Obama after four days of McCain-bashing at the Democratic National Convention this week.
McCain-bashing? When, AmeriKan MSM?
In addition to trying to attract disaffected Clinton supporters, the McCain campaign hopes that Palin will also energize the Republican Party's base. She is popular with GOP conservatives because she is a deeply religious Christian, is a hunter who supports gun rights, and has a strong antiabortion record.
Here is more from the MSM on Ms. Palin:
"A valentine to evangelical base; Mother of 5 plays well with conservatives" by Joseph Williams, Globe Staff | August 30, 2008
DENVER - According to an October 2006 profile in the Anchorage Daily News, Palin opposes stem cell research, physician-assisted suicide, and state health benefits for same-sex partners.
And check out this SKEWED BIOGRAPHY the Globe provides.
Read McCain's Judgment in Question After VP Pick first.
When I say obfuscation and distortion, I mean it!
Raised in a religious household, her faith apparently emerged at a young age: a photo of her from a high school yearbook on the Wasilla High website carries a Biblical caption: "He is the light and the light is the life. SH" While in high school she headed her high school's Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Please remember how faithful she is, 'kay?
In college, Palin competed in the Miss Wasilla beauty pageant in 1984 while working toward the communications degree she received at the University of Idaho in 1987. She won her hometown's competition and was named Miss Congeniality in the statewide event.
Why nothing about the topless photos?
After graduating from college, Palin began working in communications for various business and development concerns such as the Alaska Miners Association and the Alaska Development Council, according to her official governor's campaign biography.
A year after graduating from college, she eloped with Todd Palin, her high school sweetheart, and was married in a civil ceremony.
Nothing about the pot-smoking, huh?
DENVER - The surprise announcement, made after a frenzy of misguided speculation by cable television, blogs, and newspapers, seemed to have been engineered by the McCain campaign to draw as much attention to the selection process as the choice itself.
She is an obvious bridge to women voters, including the many Democrats who supported Hillary Clinton in the primaries.
Well, that analysis is a real piece of shit, isn't it?
And that's the Globe's Washington bureau chief?
