The “poor” Polar Bears

A friend of mine forwarded this email to me:


“Friends, compatriots, fellow-lamenters,
 We are writing to you because of the fury and dread we have felt since the announcement of Sarah Palin as the Vice-Presidential candidate for the Republican Party. We believe that this terrible decision has surpassed mere partisanship, and that it is a dangerous farce-on the part of a pandering and rudderless Presidential candidate-that has a real possibility of becoming fact.

Perhaps like us, as American women, you share the fear of what Ms. Palin and her professed beliefs and proven record could lead to for ourselves and for our present or future daughters. To date, she is against sex education,  birth control, the pro-choice platform, environmental protection, alternative energy development, freedom of speech (as mayor she wanted to ban books and  attempted to fire the librarian who stood against her), gun control, the  separation of church and state, and polar bears. To say nothing of her complete lack of real preparation to become the second-most-powerful person on the planet.

We want to clarify that we are not against Sarah Palin as a woman, a mother, or, for that matter, a parent of a pregnant teenager, but solely as a rash, incompetent, and all together devastating choice for Vice President.  Ms. Palin’s political views are in every way a slap in the face to the accomplishments that our mothers and grandmothers and great-grandmothers so  fiercely fought for, and that we’ve so demonstrably benefited from.
First and foremost, Ms. Palin does not represent us. She does not demonstrate or uphold our interests as American women. It is presumed that the inclusion of a woman on the Republican ticket could win over women voters. We want to disagree, publicly.

Therefore, we invite you to reply here mailto:womensaynopalin@gmail.com>   with a short, succinct message about why you, as a woman living in this country, do not support this candidate as second-in-command for our nation. 
 Please include your name (last initial is fine), age, and place of  residence.
 We will post your responses on a blog called “Women Against Sarah  Palin,” which we intend to publicize as widely as possible. Please send us your reply at your earliest convenience-the greater the volume of  responses we receive, the stronger our message will be.
Thank you for your time and action.

 **PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY! If you send this to 20 women in the next hour, you could be blessed with a country that takes your concerns seriously.  Stranger things have happened.”


The thing is I’m not preaching to you to vote Obama or really saying anything against the Republican party by posting this. I am a democrat for the most part (or really possibly communist as my father used to tell me), and I do agree with a lot of the fears that were written above. But what cracks me up is how they were going on and on about the horrible things Palin is against and then they throw in the “polar bears” at the end. I hope I don’t offend any of you animal lovers out there, but really who cares about the polar bears. Yes, I know all about the fear of global warming and the fear of losing the polar bears and on and on. I’m into the whole living “green” thing. I just don’t personally think that is our biggest worry right now. And, really I’ve had a crappy week (things I might post about next week) and I just do find it humorous about the polar bears. So, I’ve been forwarding the email on to my friends and all I write is how pissed I am that Palin is against the polar bears and that is really the only stand I’ll take!  

Oh, yeah… the anti abortion/pro-choice issue, anti gun control, anti church and state being separate, anti birth control, and anti sex education in the schools issues really do freak me out and are things I personally don’t even think the government should be controlling. And yes I’ll be out there voting in November, but really give it up on the polar bears and this whole campaign of women against Palin.
