Dear Sarah Palin,

I suppose you and I actually do have something in common. We both have sons we consider gifts from God. But unfortunately that’s where the similarities end since you believe your son is a “blessing from God”, but my son is one of God's mistakes which requires a little prayer to fix. Share

Just as outrageous, she's apparently as bad for women as she is for the gay community. It's now been revealed that in 2000, a new Alaskan state law had to be passed that banned rape victims from being charged for the medical forensic aftermath. Why? Because one town, Wasilla, was charging these women. The mayor from 1996 to 2002? Sarah Palin. This is not gossip or speculation, it's a direct statement from then-Governor Tony Knowles.

Mind you, in 1994, the Violence Aganst Women Act was passed, from which states were only entitled to claim monies if they footed the bill for EVERY rape kit. So for at least 4 years of her tenure as mayor, and a prior two as city councilmember, Sarah Palin was leaving the entire state of Alaska in violation of federal law, for her 'fiscally conservative' views. How fitting that the VAWA was penned by none other than Joe Biden.

Oh yes, I know all about this rape kit atrocity. But it seems everyone I talk to can't get past the cool glasses she wears long enough to learn a little more about this woman.

She is going to knock women"s rights back to the stone ages, insure our gay and lesbian citizens are kept to 2nd class citizen status, and legislate as much of her whacked-out religious beliefs into our lives as she can.

My god, I am frightened by how quickly this nation has dummied itself down. We are going to get what we deserve if we vote this McCain/Palin team into office.

You are so right that we'll get what we deserve if McCain/Palin win the election. That looks so much more possible than I ever imagined it would be.

Your son is a blessing, I know. Each of my children is, too. If we could realize every child is a blessing, how different our world would be.

Look at this quote:

The only way we eliminate war is to love our children more than we hate our enemies.
