Sarah Palin's Top 9

I can't believe i didn't see this yesterday while writing about Palin but it is a must read. To pique your interest, below are Sarah Palin's 9 most disturbing beliefs, via the AlterNet. For explanations on each, see the article. Because despite her being gorgeous, hunting moose, and having a child with special needs there are real issues to consider in this election, ones that she has very scary stances on...

1. Despite problems at home, Sarah Palin does not believe in giving teenagers information about sex.
2. Sarah Palin believes the U.S. Army is on a mission from God. (no, for real...)
3. Sarah Palin believes in punishing rape victims. (not just blaming, but punishing...)
4. Who's really not in favor of clean water? Sarah Palin.
5. Sarah Palin calls herself a reformer, but on earmarks and the "Bridge to Nowhere," she is a hypocrite.
6. Sarah Palin believes creationism should be taught in schools. (this is still one of the craziest to me...)
7. Sarah Palin supports offshore drilling everywhere, even if it doesn't solve our energy problems. (what aboutz teh polar bearz?! oh yea, she took them off the endangered species list...)
8. Sarah Palin loves oil and nuclear power.
9. Sarah Palin doesn't think much of community activism; she'd much rather play insider political games.

Any others that ya'll can think of?

Honestly there's nothing wrong with nuclear power. Nuclear Power is really god damned safe, the only problem is storage of waste. Compared to the issues with fossil fuels... yeah.

But yeah, pretty much everything else about her is god damned terrible. She's the death of a very old man away from being president if they win, and her previous job experience was leaving a town of 9,000 20 million in debt.

Although she doesn't have the guts to go through with it...

What is this about rape victims? That is a new one to me... How socially conservative can one person possibly be? I just don't understand how any person has these views, let alone a woman...
But all we can do to keep her out is to go full force on Nov. 4

Re the bridge to nowhere, Sarah Palin is lieing. Period. She supported Stevens, ran his 527, and then when it was apparent the bridge wasn't going to be funded she acted like she said "no thanks" .. but accepted the $$ anyway toward other state projects.

Gotta agree that nuclear power is something we should be looking into. The rewards far outweigh the risks.

Most everything else she says is fuckin' nuts though, especially 1-4 and 6, but especially 3. Did I mention 3 is fucking nuts? Number 3. What the fuck, Palin.

As for 7, I honestly don't care if we drill offshore, but there simply isn't enough oil to warrant spending that kind of money. From a purely logical standpoint, it's just plain stupid.

I should note though, that we need a more in-depth analysis of her economic, domestic and foreign policies. Those are the most important things to me, and from what I've been able to find about her positions, she doesn't have much of a clue. I mean, right now she seems like a stereotypical party-line voting Republican. There's really nothing that's differentiated her from the masses. God help us if her and McCain go to the White House.
