So McCain picked Palin for his VP. And immediately afterwards a bunch of scandals surface.
First, she’s under investigation for some corruption. Typical stuff, but here’s some juicy bit from Pharyngula.
” 3. Will you support funding for abstinence-until-marriage education instead of for explicit sex-education programs, school-based clinics, and the distribution of contraceptives in schools?
SP: Yes, the explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support.
Sarah and Todd Palin say their 17-year-old unmarried daughter is pregnant.The couple said in a statement released by John McCain’s presidential campaign that Bristol will keep her baby.”
Can you say oops? Now, what her daughter does is her own business. But the fact that her 17-year old unmarried daughter is pregnant shows how useless her abstinence only education really is. This reflects badly on her ability to do stuff.
Also, ” 11. Are you offended by the phrase “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?
SP: Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I’ll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance.”
So according to her, apparently the United States’ founding fathers were still alive in 1954.
