God Bless America

I don't know if any of you have had time to watch the interviews with Charles Gibson and Sarah Palin, but I am so, so scared. By the way, the interviews are on YouTube if you haven't seen them. I think these articles in the NYT's best summed up my feelings:

The New York Times Piece: Gov. Palin's Worldview

The New York Times Piece: She's Not Ready

Please help convince other Americans to save us from this stupidity. I fear our complete demise in world respect happening after watching these interviews. "You can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska" is no way to give an answer about international policy. "Not blinking at all" when making a decision to invade a foreign country? Are you kidding me? You better blink 1,000,000 times before starting a war. This woman is Bush in another form. I also loved "We need to give women more options" by undoing Roe vs. Wade. How exactly does that give us more options???

Oh yeah, and John McCain, Internet dunce. He "doesn't have a need for the Internet". In the 21st century you want to be a leader and don't care about technology? Sorry. Not to mention, you picked a woman like Palin to be the runner-up to the Presidency? What does this say about your judgement? Who else will you end up appointing when you're in office?

As you know, I usually don't get so involved in politics like this, but I just can't quite believe this. This is the Republican's answer to change? Ha. I want a woman in office as bad as any other woman out there, but to wave this kind of chance so irresponsibly in our faces is just awful. I hate the Republicans even more for playing this card. I hope other Americans see through this too, it seems the rest of the world can. I want to come back to the U.S. sometime soon. But I don't know if I can bring myself back if they are in office.

I'm interested in your reactions as well.
