Gov. Sarah Palin has alienated most Democrats plus some independents
and a few Republicans. Palin's beliefs in the "End of Days" of the most Evangelical Christians, her rigid stance against abortion, her "drill, baby, drill" her hunting wild animals from a helicopter, her pro-gun policy, and her "continue the war in Eye-raq until we have Democracy" policy have endeared her to like-minded Republicans.
However, there are people who are very tired of hearing Republican policy statements. First, most Democrats are tired of her. Let her skulk back to AK on November 5th. People who believe in a woman's right to choose don't like her opposite stance.
Religious people who do not believe the world is going to end soon but that most of us should continue doing good works do not like Palin much.
Those Americans who wish to let wild animals roam free but for those persons who actually need to hunt to eat or native populations don't like her either. She shoots wolves from helicopters.
Women who value women's rights don't like her. A woman's right to choose abortion is the major issue. Further, a woman's right to equal pay for equal work is necessary.
Men who value women with high intelligence do not value Gov. Palin.
Her support of the Republicans' ideal of staying in "I-Raq" until there is a Democracy there is not one that is admired by strong Democrats.
Finally, "Drill, Baby, Drill" for oil, especially drilling in the
Arctic National Wildlife Refuge:
is the final straw added to her effigy, that we'd like to theoretically "Burn, Baby, Burn" -- the straw woman, not Palin herself.
You have galvanized Democrats, Independents, a few smart Republicans and across the board, people from ages 18-28, to
vote Democratic this coming Tuesday, November 4th, 2008.
Thank you, Sarah Palin, for helping to elect Sen. Barack Obama.
