Sarah Barracuda in the House

CORRECTION: I may have spoken too soon about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's credentials:

Palin was a star at a young age in Alaska -- a member of the Wasilla basketball team that won the state championship (her aggressive style won her the nickname "Sarah Barracuda") in 1982 and Miss Wasilla two years later.

This is a sexist post. Why would you defame someone in this way?

Gov. Palin made history today and has more accomplishments than Obama.

This is exactly what the press did to Hillary...

via wiki:

"Governor Murkowski appointed Palin Ethics Commissioner of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission,[10] where she served from 2003 to 2004 until resigning in protest over what she called the “lack of ethics” of fellow Alaskan Republican leaders, who ignored her whistleblowing complaints of legal violations and conflicts of interest.[11][3] After she resigned, she exposed the state Republican Party’s chairman, Randy Ruedrich, one of her fellow Oil & Gas commissioners, who was accused of doing work for the party on public time, and supplying a lobbyist with a sensitive e-mail.[12] Palin filed formal complaints against both Ruedrich and former Alaska Attorney General Gregg Renkes, who both resigned; Ruedrich paid a record $12,000 fine.[3]"

According to wiki:

1.) Palin called herself as "pro-life as any candidate can be.

2.) Opposes same-sex marriage.

3.) She has supported the teaching of (un)intelligent design in public schools.

I really think she has accomplished quite a bit as a state governor, but I would have to question whether or not I would want her being a heartbeat away from the presidency. She appears to be the "wet dream" of every religious freak in the country. I have no doubt that her bulldog tenaciousness would greatly serve her when she decides to write discrimination into the constitution. The woman is dangerous! So, anyone that defames her in anyway gets my applause.

I am a former Hillary support now backing Obama. How can we expect "change" in Washington if we the people do not change the same old divisive tactic, sexism and age prejudice smears. Let's remember, 65% of the Democratic party leaders are John McCain age or older. This includes. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. I have been a long time fan of your blog. However,if you continue with kind of disrespect for McCain and Gov. Palin, I will stop viewing your blog as I have many others. Equality means fairness for all! Regardless, if you share those people values or not. You cannot stand for what Obama believe in, continue this kind of insult and disrespect! Let's not forget, Gov. Palin has more executive experience as the number two, than Obama does as the number one.
