Palindrone

More on the psychosis front. Forget the “uterine activity”, mother and daugther, forget the sexism fightback. It’s hard to dig out from front line comment but it’s in there somewhere.

Is everybody happy with this then?

Creationism

“It is hard to tell whether Palin herself is a creationist or not and, frankly, that’s far less important than the policy positions she holds in the matter. (Though, of course, having a Vice President who is deluded about basic aspects of reality would not be exactly reassuring).”

“Palin said during her 2006 gubernatorial campaign that if she were elected, she would not push the state Board of Education to add creation-based alternatives to the state’s required curriculum, or look for creationism advocates when she appointed board members.”

Global warming
“Q What is your take on global warming and how is it affecting our country?

Palin A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location. I’m not one though who would attribute it to being man-made.”
