This note was sent by a friend of mine who has a friend living in Alaska:
As for Sarah Palin, she is in no way qualified to be either VP or President, and I won't be voting for her. She has spunk and energy. She has taken on the crooks in Alaska 's Republican party, and she has moved the gas line forward. But she is very pro-life and not at all supportive of many of the hard won issues for women. She would take Bush's stands on issues like abortions and birth control and move them even farther to the right. And her religious views make her very prone to the type of black and white thinking that has gotten us into so much trouble for the last eight years. She does not understand or appreciate nuanced views very well, and she is not very culturally sensitive. Further, she is not nearly as bright, well educated, or wise about the larger world as either Obama or Biden.
