Politics - Palin Has Some Explaining To Do

Is it sexist to expect a woman being accused of a whole lot of stuff to make a case of truth for herself? I'm a woman and I don't think so!

Sarah Palin came out of nowhere to become McCain's Vice Presidential choice. Palin didn't exist to many of us and she comes with what appears to be a huge amount of baggage in tow. Palin brings to the ticket views that are to the extreme right, laced with racism and fascism. I think it's important to consider the potential implications of this particular VP nominee. And, we know if McCain is elected and croaks in office, Palin will take over. Do we really want to take a gamble on that?

Here is what I think... If Palin is so competent and has integrity as so claimed by the Republicans, why is she not coming forward to meet with the press? She has nothing to hide - right? It shouldn't be an issue, right?. In fact, Palin, in my estimation, should welcome the opportunity to come forward to clear up her "good" name.

It is not sexist to expect a Vice Presidential candidate to clear up rumor and put to rest any uncertainties about her integrity. Because I will tell you "friends", there appears to be a trail of trash in Palin's wake.

Palin claims baby, Trig is her son not daughter, Bristol's child. How is it possible for any woman to wait and travel for hours after the amniotic fluid breaks - a sure indication the baby is well on it's way to entering the world! Why haven't we seen a picture of the proud Palin taken shortly after the delivery of "her" baby? You know the one - the one taken in the hospital room after the baby is brought to the waiting arms of every mother. The sad part about all of this is that it's being questioned and her story questionable. And, why are people suspicious in the first place? Is it because Bristol is actually working on baby number two? Or, is it because Palin can't practice what she preaches regarding abstinence in her own home? Or, is it because she's a calculating liar that will use whatever means necessary to further her political ambition even if it's at the cost of her own children's welfare?

One of the most disgusting things I've read about Palin recently is that she was overheard in a local Alaskan diner referring to Barak Obama as a "Sambo" and Hillary Clinton as a "bitch". There is no room left in American society to allow for this type of mentality to prevail in Washington.

Now here's another thing to consider. If Palin doesn't meet with Joe Biden in an expected Vice Presidential debate due to some lame excuse from the Republicans, here is what I'm going to do. I'm going to write to all of my representatives (for whatever its worth) and claim foul and cover up. We, the people, have a right to see and understand exactly what Sarah Palin will bring to the table in Washington by answering challenging and straight forward questions. As well as how well she holds up under scrutiny. And, not that it would change my mind about voting for McCain because it wouldn't. It's a matter of principle to putting their money where their mouths are.
