Palin? You gotta be hosing me...

Karen Thurman, chair of the FL Dems:

Dear Friends,

John McCain rolled the dice with his VP pick today - in an attempt to woo women voters.

But we cannot gamble with women's lives.

Don't let your friends, family and co-workers be fooled: Alaskan Sarah Palin is a dangerous right-winger who lacks the judgment to lead.

In 2000, Palin endorsed Pat Buchanan for President. Yes, that Pat Buchanan.

In 2006, Palin ran for Alaska Governor on a message of change - and then turned out to be just another corrupt Alaska politician who's now under investigation in her own state.

She's no Hillary Clinton. She's Dan Quayle in a dress.

Women voters who care about equal rights, choice, family and other issues, will not see a partner in Palin.

Help us fight for these issues by electing Democrats up and down the ticket. Click here to donate today:

She is lockstep with Bush and McCain on issues important to women. Every one of them. That's scary.

The corrupt trio of Ted Stevens, Don Young, and Lisa Murkowski all raised campaign money for Palin.

John McCain claimed that Barack Obama lacked experience. Then he picked a VP who has just 20 months at the helm of a state with a population smaller than the city of Jacksonville, and zero foreign policy experience. Palin would be a heartbeat away from the presidency.

Barack Obama is ready to lead. Last night he showed us what the next American President will look like. He and Joe Biden will deliver change we need.

She is worse than Quayle. She is a female Bush. She is a right-wing extremist who thinks abortion should be illegal in ALL circumstances. She doesn't believe in evoluton. She is corrupt.

No one can convince me that she would have been picked if she had been a man. How insulting. Women will vote for her just because she is a woman? HRC didn't run on being a woman--she was a competent and effective leader. If she had Palin's "qualifications", she would have been laughed off the national stage.

This was a hail mary pass by a desperate candidate. He made this decision out of panic--and it shows how he would make decisions as president.

If you haven't been moved to the Obama camp by now, look again.

  1. What an idiot!

    I've heard more about his age now than ever before. I guess he's given up on attacking Obama as being unready, since she has the least experience of any pick in history.

    with a scandal to boot. Nice job, sparky.
