The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

Palin Watch III

See! Abstinence-only sex-ed really works... some of the time, anyway!

Living proof is offered by Ms. Sarah Palin, who, as we all know, runs a staunchly conservative state and household, and who offers her family up as the pinnacle of religiousity and moral uprightitudiness!

Democrats noted, before and after today's announcement, that Palin took a hard line on a question in 2006 from the conservative Eagle Forum Alaska:

Q: Will you support funding for abstinence-until-marriage education instead of for explicit sex-education programs, school-based clinics, and the distribution of contraceptives in schools?

SP: Yes, the explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support.

As we found out today, religious-based abstinence-only sex-ed really works, except when unmarried teens have sex -- and then it don't work so good.

Ms. Palin's decision to place her unmarried pregnant daughter in the limelight by accepting the VP position on McOld's ticket further emphasizes her firm commitment to her family. "I'm going to make a very difficult situation that much worse for my daughter," Ms. Palin stated. "The whole world will now know that my daughter got knocked-up by a boy named after a popular brand of jeans! And since we still have the right to bear arms, the whole world is now invited to her shotgun weddin'!"

So far, however, the mainstream media is not picking up on the scandals and is certainly not questioning McUnstable's judgment...

The fact that this woman deliberately had an amniocentesis, found out her child has Downs, and then decided to have the child anyway (when 90% of women who find this out decide to abort) makes me fear this woman as either a TrueBeliever (which is very scary) or so politically motivated that she would decide to have a severely retarded child in order to further her political career (which I suspect is the case, and which scares me even more)... Can you spell right-to-life-martyr?

Palin's even worse than I thought!

She was mayor of Wasilla, a town of only 6500... people. Wow. And she has been governor for just over one and a half years! Double wow.

With a resume like that, who needs experience? The repubs are already pointing to the fact that she's been in charge of Alaska's National Guard. Really? How many guards is she in charge of? 10 or 11? And what state emergencies has she mobilized them for?

Alaska wasn't even a state when John McCain was born! It has one area code and has only 626,932 people in the state! The city of Chicago has four times as many people as the entire state of Alaska.

When asked what kind of experience Palin has, McCain prominently mentioned her involvement in the PTA. Holy crap! The woman is a triple threat! Brand new governor of a very unpopulated state, mayor of a town of 6500, and member of the PTA. Look out Washington! Here comes Palin!!!

Whew! I was worried McCain would choose a real right wing nutter who looks presidential (like Mittens Romney). Instead he picked a real right wing nutter, but one who is unknown and who has only two years of experience as governor of one of the least populous states in the nation).

I guess this is his gambit to win over the disaffected Hillary fans. Fortunately, this choice can only weaken Grampa McAngry's criticism of Obama... If McAngry thinks that Obama has insufficient experience, how would whatshername compare? How many times has SHE been to Iraq and Afghanistan? How many times has she ever left the country (or even the state)? How can she be considered ready for being just a heart-beat away from the presidency?

I would be more worried if McSame had chosen Condi Rice -- although she has been entangled in all of Bush's fiascoes, she seems to escaped most of the blame... A quasi-moderate like Ridge would also have been problematic.

I think the dems should go after Palin hard. What a strange choice. Perhaps Palin reminds McOld of his great great great granddaughter from his first marriage?
