When All Else Fails Change the Subject

In Plain’s speech today she spoke about abortion. Of course, she was talking to people who were like minded, so it came as no surprise to hear the chorus of approval. However, this speech comes the day after she was found guilty of abuse of power, violating ethics laws in Alaska, so why not change the subject instead of taking responsibility for her actions? It is so much easier for Palin to attack Obama for his position on abortion.

At this stage of the presidential campaign with an announcement like that, badly behind in the polls, time running out, and an ailing economy, both at home and abroad, turning the debate to abortion is laughable. There are not very many left who are undecided and those who are undecided are the independents who will be far more concerned with the economy than with any other issue. Clearly, this speech was more to entertain than an attempt at humility, which badly needed coming from Palin and the McCain campaign. Carry on, Sarah, we can hear the fat lady warming up and the song she will be singing will not be for the McCain Palin ticket.

  1. I think you’re right..although my first thought was ‘and so it begins’. If she somehow ends up in the White House, there is no way she isn’t going to try and push her pro-life agenda. This is not an ‘open’ kind of gal. She has her beliefs and the hell with anyone who doesn’t share them. This abuse of power issue is just an example of what’s to come if she isn’t sent home….

  2. I have heard that they are not too keen on her in Alaska right now ans there is talk of impeachment, with the abuse of power case. I think she is a very dangerous woman. But then AI think the religious right has gotten a toe hold on this country and they are very brazen right now. Unless you want a Taliban type of government, we need to push back on these people.

  3. Palin, we just have to tune out her rant du jour. She is uneithcal, unqualified and a professional hate-monger.

  5. Sarah Palin is very irresponsible. She had a baby when she knew early on in the pregnancy that it would have Down’s Syndrome–which burdens it to a lifetime of trouble dealing with education, medical and social problems. Also, she preached abstenance with her daughter (which rarely works), and didn’t back it up with sex education that would help her to know just what would make her pregnant. I don’t know if she and the father are married now or not–and why did it take so long? Why didn’t McCain realize Sarah Palin was a timebomb before requesting her as his running mate?

  6. I’d like to see someone (who knows statistics) ask her about the many many teen moms who love their little dolls for awhile, then resent losing their “fun years” and behave accordingly. Ask her about the unwanted babies who are abused, neglected, given to grandparents with limited resources or energy to raise them. The effects of
    teen motherhood on levels of education, the resulting welfare, dead-end jobs, etc. And do the dads always step up to the plate? Will they? Can they? Within my own extended
    family, I see the sad sad and very far reaching effects of teen
    parenthood.

  7. Ms. Palin is a moron. She labels Obama a “radical” when in fact, she and McCain are the radicals wanting to do away with a Constitutionally protected right. Not only that, by wanting his daughters to be informed about women’s health issues, he shows that he deeply cares about the welfare about them, unlike the Palins. Keep on blabbing, you guys are desperate, and Ms. Palin ought to be impeached for all the dirty business she’s gotten away with so far in Alaska. All this does to serve Obama’s ability to stay on point and continue to give the Republican Party the drubbing it deserves. With luck, we won’t see another Republican president for at least another sixteen years.
