I kinda like Palin too. But I definitely don't like McCain.
Obama brought me a bit more over to his side last night with his wonderful speech, but no matter how much McCain talks, I don't think he could ever
Even my boyfriend was impressed and he dislikes democrats a lot more than I do.
While Palin is new and fresh though, she does lack experience, but I've heard alot about how she has good executive experience. While I'm not in
line with her stances on the issues, I definitely respect them. She doesn't seem like an irrational person.
For instance, she's against gay marriage and Alaska passed legislation to ban it, but she vetoed legislation that would bar the state from granting
them the same benefits as heterosexual couples. That was pretty cool.
I don't agree with her anti-abortion stance, but she is a member of feminists for life, so it's not like she's just some "women should stay at
home" female either. That's kinda like me.
She seems to have really cleaned up the government up there by getting rid of the ethically challenged officials in her government. What would be
funny is if she winds up kicking out McCain if she finds out how ethically challenge he is.
She does have the investigation into abuse of power going on where she fired the commissioner of public safety for SUPPOSEDLY not firing her sister's
ex husband. People have brought up how he has done some bad things but honestly, none of them had anything to do with his position as a state
trooper. They were all part of his personal life.
Then there's firing the entire board of agriculture because they wouldn't stop the shut down of a dairy plan there. She replaced them all with
people on her side who vetoed the creamery board decision to shut it down.
I don't like that it seems
(notice the emphasis on seems) that she is willing to abuse her power to accomplish personal goals.
Man, oh, man this race is gonna be close and interesting.
Shoot, if I could have it my way, I would want Obama and Palin on the same ticket!! (but unfortunately Obama does need the foreign relations
experience on the ticket and he wouldn't have that with Palin.
