If you’re the sort of person who watches a speech and becomes excited by a particular candidate without knowing much about that person or their service, except that they just said exactly what you wanted to hear…
…and if you’re the sort of person who found themselves excited by Sarah Palin, I ask of you two things.
If you haven’t read it yet, here’s an even-handed letter written by a Wasilla native (who attended Wasilla city council meetings consistently for years and who has voted for Sarah in the past) about what having Palin in office in America’s least densely populated state was actually like: Budget surplus turned into huge debt, staffs composed only of those completely beholden to her and her whims so horrible decisions go unvetted and unchallenged, doesn’t believe in Global Warming, doesn’t believe in regulation, does believe in bailing out companies that act irresponsibly (ahem, Fannie and Freddie)…
And don’t forget, McCain is not in good health nor is he young. Palin is next in line.
If you vote for McCain/Palin…you are voting for this person as President by proxy:
So I ask one last thing of you in case you’re thinking of voting for McCain/Palin. I think you know what it is.
