Sarah Palin and John "Shoot From The Hip" McCain
How dare the Republicans try to place such an unqualified irresponsible ideologue as Sarah Palin one heartbeat away from the presidency? For years, her husband belonged to Alaska's American Independent Party (AIP), a political party which advocates that Alaska secede from the United States and form its own separate country. Does that sound patriotic to you? Only by the standards of Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and the rest of their herd. Sarah Palin's daughter, Bristol, is a living Poster Girl for the fact that Sarah's narrow "Abstinence Only" policy does not work. Yet, Sarah and her right-wing cohorts would impose "Abstinence Only" on all American women by appointing Supreme Court Justices who would abolish all freedom of reproductive choice. Putting Sarah Palin on the ticket is a calculated effort by John McCain to appeal to his right wing base. With McCain, it's "Put the Base First" -- Not the Country. John "Shoot From The Hip" McCain has just shot himself in the foot.
