I figured out that I could just listen to CNN on my computer while I work today. I have to say this is much more entertaining than listening to my pitiful selection of itunes and less annoying than Dave FM online which constantly goes in and out. It is, however, probably not good for my blood pressure.
I'm so infuriated with all these GOP supporters skirting around the real issues and blabbing on and on about how Palin chose to have a down syndrome baby and supports her teenage daughter's choice to have a baby.
I'm sorry but if this was Hillary Clinton or any other DNC woman the evangelicals would be praying for her lost soul. I can hear them now just going on and on about how awful it is that she chose her career over staying at home with not only 5 children but one with special needs!! That poor child! What a horrible mother!! Can you imagine how they would spin the teenage daughter's pregnancy..."see what sex education will get you, premarital sex and a shotgun wedding!!".
Listen, I could care less that her daughter is preggers. Good for her for having a situation that allows her to not only have her baby but to have enough support to care for it. And I obviously have no issue with Palin's choice to keep her child even after knowing about the DS. Again, good for her that she has the means and support to care for a special needs child.
What I do care about is the fact that this woman has NO EXPERIENCE and is truly a 72 year old's heartbeat away from the Presidency should the GOP take the Presidency. I also care about her uber-conservative views, her pro-gun rhetoric, her belief that rape and incest victims should be forced to carry a baby to term and her devout belief that my marriage is an abomination.
As I get older I have found that in general people are not as bright as I'd thought or hoped them to be. Sorry but you know its true and if the last two presidential elections didn't prove it I don't know what will. They just seem to follow blindly without realizing where they are being led.
At this point I am just praying that we can get enough sheep back into our fold to lead this nation out of disaster.
I realize that the majority of my friends are Democrats and that I'm really just preaching to the choir but to know me is to listen to me rant...if you don't like it I'd suggest skipping the next 60 or so days on the blog.
