Chain e mail against Sarah Palin

Well we had the letter from Wasilla. Now we have the chain e mail from “two creative and eloquent young women”.

Two very elegant and creative women here

Two very elegant and creative women here

Not quite in the same league as the former and I only hope they are not speaking in the third person at the beginning:

Two creative and eloquent young women have created a blog of protest against  McCain’s cynical selection of Sarah Palin as his runningmate. Their impassioned plea certainly resonated with me as I hope it will with  you.  Please read below.

First and foremost, Ms. Palin does not represent us. She does not demonstrate or uphold our interests as American women. It is presumed that the inclusion of a woman on the Republican ticket could win over women voters. We want to disagree, publicly.

We want to clarify that we are not against Sarah Palin as a woman, a mother, or, for that matter, a parent of a pregnant teenager, but solely as a rash, incompetent, and all together devastating choice for Vice President. Ms. Palin’s political views are in every way a slap in the face to the accomplishments that our mothers and grandmothers and great-grandmothers so fiercely fought for, and that we’ve so demonstrably benefited from.

We are writing to you because of the fury and dread we have felt since the announcement of Sarah Palin as the Vice-Presidential candidate for the Republican Party. We believe that this terrible decision has surpassed mere partisanship, and that it is a dangerous farce in the part of a pandering and rudderless Presidential candidate that has a real possibility of becoming fact.

Perhaps like us, as American women, you share the fear of what Ms. Palin and her professed beliefs and proven record could lead to for ourselves and for our present or future daughters. To date, she is against sex education, birth control, the pro-choice platform, environmental protection, alternative energy development, freedom of speech (as mayor she attempted to ban books and fired the librarian who refused), gun control, the separation of church and state, and polar bears. To say nothing of her complete lack of experience.

Therefore, we invite you to reply here>; with a short, succinct message about why you, as a woman living in this country, do not support this candidate as second-in-command for our nation.

Please include your name (last initial is fine), age, and20place of residence.

We will post your responses on a blog called ‘Women Against Sarah Palin,’ which we intend to publicize as widely as possible. Please send us your reply at your earliest convenience the greater the volume of responses we receive, the stronger our message will be.

Thank you for your time and action.

Yours sincerely

Quinn Latimer and Lyra Kilston

I guess the Unitarians are coming out against Sarah Palin. One only hopes that creative and elegant writers will be used on the blog. The chain mail reference hardly inspires confidence. Not only that but people underestimate McCain at their peril. If he can distance himself enough from George W. Bush he will win. Also attacking Palin for lack of experience cannot work on Palin when the comparison is made between Obama and McCain. Other wise it will be the pot calling the kettle black.

My earlier prediction is that Obama needs to be ahead because in the closing weeks he will loose ground. If that analysis holds, short of a health scare or a big slip up, McCain will win if he is leading in late October. Democrats are going to have to do more then hope – they really are going to have to act to win back the White House.
