Alison, just so you know, I was kidding about the makeover thing, that's why I put the smiley face after big hair.
Of course her looks and how she dresses aren't important but what she stands for and what she believes, is. And, were she a Democrat and had Obama chosen her for his running mate, I still wouldn't support her. Cross my heart and hope to die if I'm telling a lie.
I haven't read the Alaska Daily News, but I have read enough about her to know how to spell her name and figure out that what she stands for won’t get her my vote. She’s opposed to a woman’s right to choose, even in cases of incest or rape, she supports drilling in ANWR, and wants creationism taught in public schools. She doesn’t believe global climate change is a real issue, and for heavens sake she even opposed having polar bears put on the endangered species list so it wouldn’t interfere with big oil’s interests, and she kills animals for sport. How cruel!
According to her own words, she has no idea what a VP is supposed to do and has never shown any interest in or knowledge of foreign policy or international affairs:
"In an interview with Alaska Business Monthly shortly after she took office in 2007, Palin was asked about the upcoming surge. She said she hadn't thought about it. "I've been so focused on state government, I haven't really focused much on the war in Iraq,"
She may be good for Alaska, though that remains to be seen since she’s only served something like a year and a half as Governor, but to my way of thinking she just isn’t qualified either by experience or interest to be a heartbeat away from the Presidency.
