    This subset of the list gives me pause. But I am never in a position to pick candidates due to policy.

    The stories of how she dealt with people in Alaska makes her seem more like a Bush-type autocrat as we learn more about her. This is a matter of approach, not policy, and her approach to dealing with colleagues is one I never want to see in the white-house again.

    I am still undecided between the two candidates. Initially, after the VP picks, I was intrigued, and admittedly swung a bit in favor of McCain-Palin (irrationally, I admit). But now, I believe Palin was actually a detrimental choice for VP.

    My main reason for not wanting her as VP, is due to her executive style. She seems like she would be a young, female, Alaskan version of Dick Cheney. Though the extreme social conservatism is a turn off as well.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    What do you expect? You haven't presented a strong argument. If you believe she's a 'moron' for her view on a particular issue, explain why her view is 'moronic'.

    Ehh, good question, I am unsure, what I am am sure about is that the use and distribution of marijuana should be decriminalized, in a MAJOR way.

    No, but someone who agrees with her on all of her points is.

    I should point out that a significant fraction of the US population thinks that all the points you posted (thank you) are pretty good ideas. Palin has garnered quite a bit of support for the Republican ticket among the red-staters.

    They have a different perspective than you do. That doesn't make them morons.

    It should bother her, as much as it bothers anyone with an ounce of rationality when the basis for someone's argument relies exclusively on ad hominem attacks, bolded bullet points, and an overabundance of exclamation points and capital letters.
    I don't wanna!
