That candidate is Barack Obama and here is what Sarah Palin’s record on animal rights looks like.

A reader from The Daily Dish hits this perfectly about Rich Lowry’s orgasm over at the NRO:

I thought Palin’s performance at the debate was downright embarrassing and on top of that I have to read this clown’s blog, stating more or less that Palin gave him an erection? Little starbursts my ass.  Here’s what I thought when Palin “dropped” that first wink at us: “Did she just wink at us like she was America’s cocktail waitress?” Rich Lowry is on the verge of slapping Sarah Palin on the ass and asking her for another of those fantastic whiskey sours.

Our very own Yamaan40 will be on Sirius Radio today at 5PM talking with Joe Salzone.  Tune in to Indy Talk Radio (I believe it’s channel 110) to hear him on a show called “The Blog Bunker”.

If we let this fool get one heart beat away from the Presidency then we risk intellectual devolution and the downfall of our country.  Instead of teaching math & science we will be debating burning bushes and walking on water. 

Just to put things into perspective: China has more honor students than the US has students.

Do you think that the Chinese, or India, spend a whole lot of time debating or teaching whether Abraham begat his only son?  No, me neither.

Instead of leading in medical and technical research, Palin would have us put our fate in the hands of Jesus.  Local school boards should stick to legally compliant math and science doctrines and reject creationism as nothing more than literature. 

This sounds harsh, but the next Jonas Salk could be livng in a town where the likes of Palin preside on a school board that have decided that teaching science is the devil’s work, when, in fact, it is the other way round.

Time:

COURIC: Should creationism be allowed to be taught anywhere in public schools?

Gov. PALIN: Don’t have a problem at all with kids debating all sides of theories, all sides of ideas that they ever–kids do it today, whether it’s on paper in a curriculum or not. Curriculums also are best left to the local school districts, instead of big brother, federal government, telling a district what they can and can’t teach.

Watching this CNN video makes Palin’s false assertion of visiting the one vantage point that a person can see Russia less important than the reality that Palin seems to have largely abandoned these people. I guess it puts into perspective the bullshit that was the Cold War, and is Putin’s alleged global menace towards us, when Reagan, and now Palin, couldn’t give a toss about these people despite their front-line proximity to Russia.

I would have been quite impressed if palin had visited Little Diomede, but she hasn’t, and she won’t. Instead she will take credit for the endurance that the people of this island go through on a daily basis. No doubt they could sniff through her “Joe-six-Pack” nonsense. The rugged lifestyle that the people of Little Diomede live on a daily basis, makes Palin’s airplane-wolf-shooting, dog sledding, moose hunting, look like luxury.

Palin, rather than shore up her foreign relations experience, merely confirms that she is disinterested in the plight of poor Americans no matter how dangerous or precarious their living conditions are.

Doesn’t get much funnier than this!  Apparently Sarah Palin has never seen Russia from Alaska ?  So what does that say about her Foreign Policy experience? 

Apparently no Governor has ever visited Little Diomede, which is the area of Alaska from which you can see Russia.  There are no roads to this part of Alaska, the only way to get there is by helicopter and it’s population is 150, there are no hospitals, and the poverty rate is above 40%.  The only person who has visited this small area of Alaska is Senator Ted Stevens.  Check out this link to read more.

Why aren’t Alaskan’s being heard in the Main Stream Media?  I saw very little coverage of the “Alaska Women Reject Palin Rally” , which turned out to be one of the largest Rallies in Alaskan history with about 1500 people showing up.  Alaskans rallied again yesterday, this time to hold Sarah Palin Accountable and almost 2000 people turned out. I would love to see more news coverage of this.  Videos courtesy of the Mudflats and you tube.

Hop on over to Adventures in AK for more pictures from this Rally.
