Sarah Palin's high value

I’m getting ready to hear Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin, John McCain, Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin, John McCain this weekend at the Values Voter Summit.

That’s if the summit is anything like the Republican National Convention. Last year, John McCain came in last of the six Republican candidates in the summit’s straw poll. He received just 81 votes of the 5,776 cast.

The Family Research Council will host the summit for conservative voters with "shared values," and issues like abortion and gay marriage are bound to be common themes.

The New York Times’ story out of last year’s Values Voter Summit was that Christian conservatives were divided over which Republican candidate to support.

Mitt Romney won 28 percent of the votes, with Mike Huckabee trailing him close behind. The Washington Times writes about how Palin rises as the new conservative leader while others like Romney and Huckabee fade to the background.

How's this for Sarah Palin having "high value?"

The irony in all of this is that within less than 24 hours of McCain naming Palin, the likes of James Dobson (the self appointed Pope of neoconservatives) are praising Palin based solely upon the fact that she is an evangelical and choose not to have an abortion. That's it. Dobson knew as much as I did about Palin when he got on Fox news to tell the world that despite his former commitment to not vote for McCain if he became the Republican nominee, that he was now on board the Straight Talk Express. I personally don't care who Dobson votes for, nor why, but let's face it, Evangelicals like Dobson jumping on the Palin and McCain bandwagon without knowing ANYTHING about her, shows a complete lack of discernment, judgment and a naive willingness to be wooed back into the Republican fold with Rovian tactics. It's like McCain threw them a hunk of red meat, and Evangelicals like a pack of Pavlovian dogs salivated and jump right back on the bandwagon that put George W. Bush in the White House twice. You can think what you want about Barrack Obama, but he is by far the most normal, family oriented candidate with the most normal and wholesome family in this race. I don't care if it was a billion years ago, the way in which McCain dumped his former, handicapped wife to bag a rich beer heiress is more indicative of his character than his sitting in a prison cell in Vietnam for 5 years. Evangelicals have once again proven themselves to be a naive, easily duped constituency, ready to pull the level for someone who just 8 years ago called them "agents of intolerance". I'd say I was surprised, but what I am is disappointed.

Leroy--What's ironic is that you're critical of other peoples intelligence when you havn't learned how to use a computer yet--You only need to post once. And if you're not worried about who someone is voting for why did you write four inches of copy to tell us about it. It's apparent why you're spending so much time worrying about McCain/Palin because there's not really much you can say about Obama/Biden other than he a good,"wholesome" family man(by the way so am I, does that make me qualified?) Oh yea, I guess I'm not qualified since I was never a slick talking community organizer like Obama was(whatever that is), and Biden is the self admitted wrong nomination for his party's VP-- He says Hillary is.(I love that). Leroy, seems that you are just as intolerant of evangelicals(of which I'm not, evangelical that is) as you say they are of liberals.

I think that when you vote in this election, if you don't particularly care for McCain/Palin consider it lesser of two evils, because God Help Us if Obama wins. Pray about it. I strongly believe that Obama is trying to hide his Muslim faith. In his book Audacity of Hope he admits that he learned to be "detached" from religion and that he attended a Muslim school. He also said he does not believe the verse in Romans that says it is wrong to be gay. So, if he doesn't believe that, what parts of the Bible does he believe?

Donna--I think you're onto something there--Obama seems to have alot to hide, but the media won't call him out for fear of being branded racist.In an interview the other day with George Stephanopolous he slipped and used the words "my Muslim faith" and went onto correct hisself and said he neant to say "my Christian faith". I think the guy is an absolute poser and phony as a three dollar bill.

Did you actually watch the interview with Stephanopolous? He actually was thanking McCain for not branding him a Muslim and perpetrating that lie. It is very clear from the interview. You are on Christianity Today's website which has FREQUENTLY said that Obama is not a muslim. Disagree with policy, your right, but don't make stuff up or believe stuff against overwhelming evidence.

Whether you want to vote for Obama or not, he is our brother in Christ as is John McCain. This does not qualify either of them to be president. George Bush is also our brother in Christ and look at what he has done to this country. McCain does not respect evangelicals (check his record) and will do the same with your support that George Bush has done. The republicans use our values to get votes and then what? Nothing. The rate of abortions has increased under Bush's watch. Please consider working with the dems to decrease the number of abortions, to improve our environment, to give tax cuts to the middle class, to keep jobs in America, and to improve our schools. I am voting for Obama in the fall. Check out his policies on his website and/ or websites from other Christians that support him. You may be surprised.

Haha--who could make this stuff up. Obama is a perpetual sound bite.No one has to brand him a muslim, he keeps doing it himself. It's also kind of tough to respect evangelicals these days as there are many of them making such fools of themselves. If anyone thinks Obama will give you any kind of lasting tax cut... that's never been his strong point...Why should anyone believe him now?
