I couldn't stop laughing about that one.
Ok, funny stuff aside, I don't think she is all that credible as a VP. A VP should be able to stand on their own two legs, handle questions thrown their way, and act in a respectable way. She doesn't cut the mustard at all in any of those fronts.
And CDW, I truly respect your opinion (especially all things Mac), but "She comes across as a very "real" individual"?? Seriously? I think we have had enough of the kind of people we mant to have a beer with. Have we not learned from the past 8 years that for a President (or even VP) we need exceptional, not common?
However, all that being aside, I have two major grievances with her policies: Roe v. Wade and Creationism.Roe v. Wade
: She has actually said she wants to repeal that. I am sorry, but the policy of "life begins at inceptions" is bullocks. If we want a real, clinical viewpoint of pregnancy, a baby in the fetus is nothing more than a parasite. (Yes, I am a father, BTW.) It lives because the mother lives. Besides, what is better, a dead parasite, or an unwanted child? While I don't like ANY answer; I have to put my money on the first one, because the parasite will grow into a person, and that person will have to live the rest of their lives knowing they were unwanted. As much as I love adoption as an alternative, that adoption system is already overloaded, and it doesn't need yet more children to care for.Creationism
: Ok, where do I begin? Since the Religious Right (mind you, I now feel that is separate from true Republicans) wants to classify it as a "science", then it has to adhere to the same standards that other sciences do. Namely, the Scientific Method. Every science has to go through this same process, so why do the proponents of Creationism or Intelligent Design insist it is above that same method? The only "proof" of it is in the Christian Bible, which does not classify itself as a scientific document. Scientists have always held firm to the ideals that Science and Religion can never mix (Science is based off from proof, Religion is based off from faith). Her belief that this ought to be given the same weight as Evolution, or any other Science, is almost laughable.
Those, to me at least, are to major reasons why she would make a lousy VP. And don't get me started about McCain, that man has gone over the deep end.Note:
I voted for McCain for Senator twice. Senator McCain even gave me an American Flag when I received my Eagle Scout award. So it pains me to say that about him, but I must call a spade a spade.
