COMMENTS: Palin’s Personal Politics

The major campaign coverage of the day came from CBS anchor Katie Couric, who filed an extended nine-minute fourth part of her Exclusive profile of Sarah Palin, the Republican Vice-Presidential nominee and Governor of Alaska. Last week Palin discussed the financial crisis and foreign policy with Couric; Monday she double-teamed with John McCain; now she addressed Couric's personal-political questions.

Yes, Palin is a feminist who believes in equal rights for women. Yes, she read newspapers and magazines before she was nominated, "most of them…all of them…any of them that have been in front of me." Yes, the globe is warming but it "kind of does not matter" whether the warming is caused by humans burning fossil fuels. Yes, she is pro-life--and would so counsel incestuously raped pregnant teenagers--but no woman should be incarcerated for having an abortion. Yes, she approves of contraception but would not personally use the morning-after method. Yes, she subscribes to evolution science even as she sees "the hand of God" in Earth's creation. "As for homosexuality, I am not going to judge Americans and the decisions that they make in their adult personal relationships."


Im sure this was not the spin we were given a few weeks ago? Another question, how can this women sway the votes of some of the blind Hilarites who just want to see a women in office, even if it is someone such as this. Apparently she was quoted in a magazine as loving living in Alaska because she could "keep one eye on the reds". Has anyone told her Communism offically "ended" in Russia 15 years ago? At the first sign of trouble, McCain will have a heart attack, and condemn us to a nuclear war with the rest of the world.
