Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits

Everyone is obsessed with Sarah Palin

Has it really been only five days since John McCain announced Alaska governor Sarah Palin as his running mate?

What have we learned about this heretofore relatively anonymous woman?

1. She doesn’t want women to have abortion as a choice. She wants all women to have babies every time they get pregnant.
2. She’s against the gays marrying.
3. She likes guns.
4. She thinks hunting the endangered bears is just fine. (In fact, she denies they are endangered).
5. She’s all for drilling the shit out of Alaska to get oil.
6. Her husband works for the oil industry.
7. She thinks banning books is okay.
8. Her 17-year-old is knocked up and marrying the kid who got her that way.
9. She may have gotten her sister’s ex-husband fired from his job as a state trooper.
10. She names her children for subjects in school. (Well, one of them is more an elective).
11. Her own mother-in-law may not vote for her.
12. The View‘s Elisabeth Hasselbeck endorses her. (Though she probably wouldn’t if Palin were a BLACK woman with five kids, a pregnant teen-age daughter, and a house full of guns.)

Are GOP folks charmed by this Backwoods Barbie?

Your thoughts?

  1. Palin’s Alaska’s first female Governor and its youngest Governor. She was elected by first defeating the incumbent Republican governor in the Republican primary, then a former Democratic Alaskan Governor in the general election.

    During her tenure as Governor Palin’s she managed a successful push for an ethics bill, crippling pork-barrel projects supported by fellow Republicans.

    She is strongly pro-life and belongs to Feminists for Life of America, the largest and most visible pro-life feminist organization in America. Palin and Feminists for Life of America believe in “systematically eliminating the root causes that drive women to abortion — primarily lack of practical resources and support — through holistic, woman-centered solutions.” Gov. Palin recently gave birth to her fifth child — who she knew would have Down syndrome.

    Palin opposes same-sex marriage but used her very first veto as Governor of Alaska on legislation that would have barred the state from granting benefits to gay state employees and their partners. In effect, her veto granted State of Alaska benefits to same-sex couples.

    She believes in increasing domestic oil and natural gas drilling, but in April 2007, she announced plans to create a new sub-cabinet, to address climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions within Alaska. In 2003, as Ethics Commissioner on the state’s Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, she risked her political career by resigning her position in protest of ethical misconduct within the state’s Republican leadership as well as then-Gov. Frank Murkowski’s acceptance of that corruptio

  2. “Feminists for Life” – that’s rich.

    Anyone who wants to reverse an animal’s status as endangered gets a big thumbs down in my book. She could be a direct descendent of Jesus Christ Himself and I’d still do everything I could to keep her from getting elected. Anyone – and I mean ANYONE – who wants to reverse the polar bear’s standing as an endangered animal is saying to me, “All I care about is money, and I will stop at nothing to get it.”

    Oh, that, and I think she’s a stupid bitch.

  3. Many studies show that the NUMBER ONE reason for infertility and reproductive problems such as triggers of genetic inborn errors of metabolism (such as Down’s)are due to environmental degretation (polluted waters, Bis-phenol A (#’s 3,6, and 7 on plastics, etc.) If Palin wanted to be the true hero as a “Feminist for Life” she would pursue issues that affect womyn’s reproductive health such as NOT drilling for oil. Nevermind the RIGHT TO CHOOSE. Rather she’s keeping up with the status quo of the poisonous GOP.
    Number 12 is rich and very ironic Gina…..why aren’t more people taking on this line of reasoning? Probably because systemic & logical thinking were one of the textbooks Palin and GOP croonies have banned or will ban if they are elected.

  4. Kevin Croitz on said:

    Why are the people who are supposedly for life, so often against love, the value of all life, and the well being of our biosphere which is a lifeform in it self? This is the party of people who dont want you to mrry for love, who want you to beleive as they beleive, who dont beleive in seperation of church in state, who want to keep children uninformed and insulated from the world, and among other dispicable beliefs want to tell you when you can die. Thats why I’m voting inpedendent if I even bother to vote. Kevin

  5. It is also the party which throughout its history has claimed to be about less government and less government involvement in the personal lives of American citizens.
