Given McCain’s thrashing of the media, I know it must be easy to gush over Sarah Palin right now. But that just won’t do. We turn to the media to deliver us unbiased news. And someone needs to dish on the undeniable facts about Palin.
First, she’s against abortion, even in the case of rape and incest. What ever happened to the biblical phrase: “One man’s liberty is not judged by another man’s conscience”? Second, she doesn’t believe that people have caused global warming. She sued the Bush administration for putting polar bears on the endangered-species list. And here’s a final scary point: She thinks the war in Iraq is a task given to the United States by God.
Straight from the reader’s heart: I praise the media for being courageous enough to not back down at the wag of McCain’s finger. When you’re a VP candidate, you’ve got to expect hard questions—especially when you’ve got extreme views. Claiming foul and anti-feminism should be seen for the sham it is.
This election is about issues, not personality. Let’s focus on the issues and stand behind our media for reporting on what matters.
