The Eclectic One

…Because labels are a poor substitute for thinking

Sarah Palin’s positions

Posted by Bill Nance on September 2, 2008

Abortion: Against for any reason except the LIFE of the mother…so permanent infertility, rape or incest are “just silly excuses.”

Sex Education: Abstinence only. One would think the fact that your own daughter became pregnant by accident as a result of this “education” would change your mind on this nonsense which has been condemned by every scientific group in the country; Unless you’re Sarah Palin.


  • Wants creationism taught in public school biology courses.
  • is “skeptical” about global warming. Funny that she’s skeptical about this but accepts the literal genesis story of creation as unquestioned fact. -Scratch that, it’s not funny at all
  • Wants to ban ALL Embryonic Stem-Cell research, including privately funded research.

Church and State:

  • On pipelines:”I think God’s will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built, so pray for that.”
  • On Iraq: “Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also, for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending [U.S. soldiers] out on a task that is from God. That’s what we have to make sure that we’re praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God’s plan.” (emphasis added)

National Defense: None

International Affairs: None

Economics: None

Relations with the Senate (the job of the Vice President) None

Ethics: She’s under investigation in Alaska for firing her State Police Chief for not dismissing a state trooper who was in a custody dispute with Palin’s sister. Figure it out for yourself.

So here we have a person who has been a Governor of a tiny state for 18 months, who before that was a local politician in a town of less than 6,000 year-round residents, who has questionable ties to a radical right-wing political party and is currently under investigation for ethics violations.

Sound like Vice Presidential material to you? The few political positions she HAS taken are just icing on the cake.

Sarah Palin isn’t a candidate, she’s a lunatic.
