Friends, compatriots, fellow-lamenters,
We are writing to you because of the fury and dread we have felt since theannouncement of Sarah Palin as the Vice-Presidential candidate for the Republican Party. We believe that this terrible decision has surpassed mere partisanship, and that it is a dangerous farce-on the part of a pandering and rudderless Presidential candidate-that has a real possibility of becoming fact.
Perhaps like us, as American women, you share the fear of what Ms. Palin and her professed beliefs and proven record could lead to for ourselves and forour present or future daughters. To date, she is against sex education, birth control, the pro-choice platform, environmental protection, alternative energy development, freedom of speech (as mayor she wanted to ban books and attempted to fire the librarian who stood against her), gun control, the separation of church and state, and polar bears. To say nothing of her complete lack of real preparation to become the second-most-powerful person on the planet.
We want to clarify that we are not against Sarah Palin as a woman, a mother, or, for that matter, a parent of a pregnant teenager, but solely as a rash incompetent, and all together devastating choice for Vice President. Ms. Palin's political views are in every way a slap in the face to the accomplishments that our mothers and grandmothers and great-grandmothers so fiercely fought for, and that we've so demonstrably benefited from.
First and foremost, Ms. Palin does not represent us. She does not demonstrate or uphold our interests as American women. It is presumed that the inclusion of a woman on the Republican ticket could win over women voters. We want to disagree, publicly.* Therefore, we invite you to reply here < mailto:email@example.com > with a short, succinct message about why you, as a woman living in this country, do not support this candidate as second-in-command for our nation.* Please include your name (last initial is fine), age, and place of residence.We will post your responses on a blog called "Women Against Sarah Palin," which we intend to publicize as widely as possible.
Please send us your reply at your earliest convenience-the greater the volume of responses we receive, the stronger our message will be.
Thank you for your time and action. *VIVA!*

Now that the democrats have won-----they can afford to be more generous and kind MAYBE
After Palin was selected VP --- hundreds of reporters with money in their hands went to Alaska covering north to south to validate the fact she was STUPID and found she had 85% approval which is pretty high for any politician and found she was not STUPID. Hillary was subjected to humiliation of all kinds but she was around DC too long for anyone to be able to sell the idea she was stupid. They called her things like a B#itch or the one with fat-ankles or a white witch.
Those who say PALIN is stupid are brainlessly not informed or misinformed and just want to believe it even though they have to know its not true. .
Women only have 16% representation in DC and the reason being is there is not much support for women by other women. I don't know why that is---but its a fact. Plus what woman would want to go thru what Hillary and Sarah have gone thru just because they are running for office.
It took women 50 years after the blacks got their right to vote so ---I figure another 50 years maybe America will accept a woman and graciously who runs for PREZ or VP ??? MAYBE.
