Palin has also said that she supports the teaching of creationism (or "intelligent design"). As far as I can see, a vote for her is a vote that brings the world of Margaret Atwood's Gilead one step closer.

Ya. She's not a leader, she's a dictator. Unfortunately that will appeal to a lot of little dictators out there.

Creationism in the classroom and Social Darwinism at large. Some will say that's heaven on earth.

She cut 62 percent of the special ed budget in Alaska! What an advocate!

What scares me about Palin is that she does appeal to a certain female demographics - and if Obama's team underestimates her, it will be a mistake.

I couldn't agree more with all the comments here. It's more than a little scary.

I just read that Katherine Hall Jamieson from the Annenberg Public Policy Center has found out that Palin actually increased funding for special needs kids--a change in how the state classified items in its budget from one year to the next is what made it appear she'd cut the funding.
