Perhaps Palin's scheduled speech should be one of resignation?
Lets take a look at the latest revelations about Palin.
Earmark Reductions - The much touted reduction in earmarks that position Palin as a hard line reformer were in fact a reduction of just $5 per person in Alaska. They asked for $300 per person in earmarks and Palin reduced it to $295.
Fact: Other states average $34 per person in earmarks, so Alaska is a huge abuser of this system and the slim reduction clearly does not demonstrate one who wants to change the system.
Sex Education - Both McCain and Palin are supporters of reduced funding for Sex Education. While she is a staunch supporter for the anti-abortion cause, she clearly has not demonstrated the knowledge that Sex Education helps the occurrence of unwanted teen pregnancies.
Fact: Her own daughter's teen pregnancy should be clue enough to her of the need to properly educate teens on more than abstinence and the bible. Not too mention the highly controversial rumor over her last child.
Abuse of Office - Only two years into her term as Alaskan governor and she is already under investigation for the firing of a state public safety commissioner.
Fact: While Palin hasn't been directly involved with the firing, it seems that members of her staff had a part in the firing.
Palin the Reformer - Palin accepted at least $4,500 in contributions in a fund raising scheme for her failed bid for Lieutenent governor. Palin also hired a lobbyist while mayor to secure the town of just 5000 with at least 14 earmarks worth $27 million over a 3 yr period.
Fact: This is the same fund raising scheme that has led to indictments of Sen. Ted Stevens, and the FBI is still investigating.
This has all come out in just the week since Palin was introduced to the general public. What other skeletons lie in that dark closet? We are asking the Vice President to be capable and reputable, especially given the advanced age and questionable health of McCain. Is it wise to nominate someone for Vice President that just got her passport 1 1/2 yrs ago?
Palin is neither experienced, worldly, able to handle her own family, trustworthy, or a reformer. They picked a pretty face to go along with McCain's aging mug.
