Why I must say no to Sarah Palin

I just sent this to Women Against Sarah Palin:

If it was imperative for McCain to choose a woman as his running mate, there are certainly many more qualified Republican women available.  I knew enough already about Palin’s record in Alaska when the announcement was made to know that she is a extremely bad choice for Vice President.  As I learn more about her, that feeling just gets reinforced.  Learning that rape victims were charged for the evidence kits needed to prosecute their attackers while she was mayor of Wasilla enrages me.  Because the Alaskan legislature had to take action to outlaw this travesty of justice, I cannot believe that she was unaware of this policy while she was mayor.  For McCain to assert that she is his best choice sends two messages, the first that justice is contingent on your ability to pay for it, and the second is that his own judgment is seriously lacking.

    Please sign the PBS petition against Ms. Palin at: http:www.pbs.org/now/polls/poll-435.html
    This poll asks if you think Palin is ready to be VP. Currently the “yes” vote is winning. As thinking women, we MUST stop her!
