"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."

Palin Condemns Racism, Obama Remains Mum on Sexism

KATALUSIS covers it.

"“Bill McAllister, a spokesman for Gov. Sarah Palin, said Thursday that none of the 10 employees worked in the governor’s office and that to his knowledge no one in the office had received any of the messages, which, he said, Ms. Palin condemns.

‘“They violate state policy — at least that’s the prima facie view of things,’ Mr. McAllister said in a telephone interview. ‘They’re not state business, and obviously they are offensive, and clearly she doesn’t support that. And she does not support racism, and she does not support attacks on the president-elect.’”

Compare the condemnation of the above racist activity by Gov. Palin to the complete lack of response from President-elect Obama to the photo of Jon Favreau widely circulated on the Internet showing Obama’s chief speechwriter and his buddy sexually molesting a cardboard cutout of the newly named secretary of state Hillary Clinton.""

This is one of the primary reasons I like Sarah Palin. I don't agree with her on every issue. But, she is clear and concise. I know what she says, and she says what she means. I never get the feeling I am being lied to, or pandered to. And I don't think she is "campaigning for 2012" every time she utters a word.

Keep it up Sarah. By 2012, we are going to need a straight talker.

    If she would distance herself from Bush's parting gift to women and other vulnerable people via the "conscience" order, I'd be on cloud 9!
