"Just Tell Them...
I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Sarah Palin's Winning Pick (I'm waiting for the apologies, sisters...)
I woke up to the news this morning, that Sarah Palin may have actually named, to the Alaska high court a .... ***get this..... better sit down now*** ....pro-choice judge!
And she is a woman to boot!
Here's the blurb I'd been waiting for:
"Yesterday, Gov Palin picked Anchorage Superior Court Judge Morgan Christen to become only the second female Supreme Court Judge in the history of the State of Alaska. But Judge Christen isn’t just any woman. She is a pro-choice and was even on the board of Planned Parenthood in the 1990s. The other finalist for the job was a more conservative male."
Now don't get me wrong. I am not pushing pro-choice (or pro-life) judges. I am all for GOOD judges. Qualified ones. You know, the kind that know how to read a constitution, and will uphold the law.
I apologize that it has taken me a while to process this exceedingly good news. It's just that ... gasp.... another female political figure that I have come to know, trust and respect is actually ... really and truly ... qualified to be POTUS!!! Not in a litmus-y testy far right or left sort of way. Not in a pearl sporting, highheel wearing, showhorsey June Cleaver-ish sort of way. Nope. Not at all. Sarah Palin has guts!
Deep inside, I always knew it. But now I have proof.
Oh... and I agree with my friends at The New Agenda: Some supposedly "pro-woman" idealogues out there owe Governor Palin an apology. Big time!
Shall I name names?
