Be Afraid. Be Very, Very Afraid.

I am terrified, and horrified with the remarkable turn the public and media took when McCain announced Palin as his running mate. All of a sudden people are echoing words of the Feminist Movement-- excuuuuse me? Palin. Feminist. Same sentence? Same breath? I don't think so.

It's very hard for me to believe, and heart breaking, that there are millions of women voters who would vote for McCain simply because he chose a woman as his VP candidate. That there are thousands of Hillary-supporters who are now switching over to the other side. Now, i don't know how much of this is the media and how much of it is true-- I'm sure it's a little bit of both-- but can we PLEASE make one thing clear? Sarah Palin is in no way qualified to be in the white House and she is by NO MEANS doing ANYTHING for women or society. If she is elected she will literally turn back the clock and undo everything our mothers and grandmothers fought so fucking hard for.

-She is against abortion- even if you were raped or your creepy uncle fucked you and you got pregnant.

-She is against sex education in schools.

-She is against birth control.

Not to mention she also does not believe in the separation of church and state, or environmental protection. She doesn't even believe that global warming is man-made. And of course, she has no idea what the "Bush Doctrine" is.

Anyway... not to depress everyone too much so early on in the week, thought I'd end this on a laugh...
