The Palin thing

Science-fiction editor Kathryn Cramer has been posting to her blog about Sarah Palin, along with half the country.  She posted an aggregate of investigative articles from the Alaska Daily News which seems to demonstrate the kind of image management and responsibility dodging of which Palin is capable.

You may want to post this to dark_christian if you're a member. The more information we get, the better.

I'm aware of the group but not a member. I could take a peak at it, but feel free to post if you're a member.

Actually I am, that's why I mentioned it. They are incredibly worthwhile as a community, and the resources are amazing.

Done, actually... Now let's see if it makes it through moderation - they moderate pretty well everyone...

I was wondering how that worked there. I saw that some sort of moderation was used. Is it just on a per-post basis, or are people generally unable to post without having the ability activated for them?

I swear I think at this point nothing she does surprised me. I really, really, really hope that America wises up and gets a clue this election.

Obama seems to be handling himself really well, so I think he has a good chance. I'm sad that we're still trapped in the binary political system that's developed, but at least there is some hope there. Many people have been commenting on the comical cartoon-level evil that's come from people like Palin, and hopefully a substantial portion of the population will recognize that.

There is, however, a part of me that wonders if this society is in need of a major breakdown in order to reform into something better. This isn't something I think of as an ideal for all the suffering it would involve, but it's the sort of thing I consider from a functionalist perspective. I don't agree with a lot of what functionalist sociologists say, but I do think cultures and societies can be viewed, to a degree, as organisms that go through stages of development, and I wonder what direction ours is headed.

McCain scares the crap out of me. I wouldn't vote for him if my life depended on it. He may have walked the walk and talked the talk, once, but that was around 50 years ago. Now he's dancing to the tune of "Me and My Shadow" to Bush's fiddle.

I'm also disturbed by the fact that McCain is 72, he's had cancer and other health issues, the average male lifespan in the United Stats is 75, and he'd have to live past 76 in order to make through a single term. This leaves a substantial opening for Sarah Palin to become the first female president, and that would be an atrocity. I'd like a real woman in office, thanks.

Same here. I know a lot of elderly are semi-rooting for McCain and all, but I don't think they realize the consequences of who would step into his place if he kicks the bucket before his term ends.

::chuckles:: Palin has all the qualifications of a real woman but she sure as hell doesn't ACT like she's got her common sense screwed on correctly!
