Sarah Palin Cannot BE ELECTED!

From a reader/commenter in today's StarTribune...

I'm not sure I've been so appalled by four words in my life. Recently Sarah Palin accused Senator Obama of "palling around with terrorists". Palling around with terrorists. Spend a few moments with that image in your mind. That is a vivid, evocative, and deeply concerning statement that is utterly incorrect and reflect more upon Sarah Palin's reckless, dangerous, and deeply disturbing character and personality. These are the kind of word bombs that, if lobbed at the wrong person, can ignite if not a word war, an all-out world war. Can you imagine this woman spouting reckless comments on the world stage about Ahmadinejad, Hamas, Putin or God knows who else? If elected, this woman would become an official representative of the United States and step onto the world stage with her careless, impetuous, ignorant word bombs with absolutely no regard for the consequences. It is her unthinking boldness and her smug ignorance that, if elected, have the grave potential to careen this country toward total collapse. Please, please, please send this to ten of your friends and encourage them to send it to ten of their friends and so on. We need a voter turnout against this woman that is so strong, so passionate and so determined to ensure Sarah Palin is not one tenuous heart beat from the Presidency. Regarding Senator Obama "palling around" with William Ayers who was a leader in a radical and violent anti-Vietnam group from the 60s: The facts are a $200 contribution by Ayers to an Obama re-election fund, and their joint membership on the Woods Fund Board, an anti-poverty funding program. Ayers is now a distinguished professor of education at the University of Illinois and a former aide to Mayor Richard M. Daley. A statement from the Obama campaign pretty much sums it up: "Senator Obama strongly condemns the violent actions of the Weathermen group, as he does all acts of violence. But he was an eight-year-old child when Ayers and the Weathermen were active, and any attempt to connect Obama with events of almost forty years ago is ridiculous." Ridiculous, yes, but also dangerous, reckless, misleading and spoken by an inexperienced, careless woman who has no regard for facts or decorum. = = = = = =
