In Focus: Sarah Palin

Hogging the spotlight ever since she was formally proclaimed as the Republican Vice-presidential bet opposite Sen. John McCain, Alaska incumbent Governor and former beauty queen Sarah Palin has treaded one issue after another concerning her "almost absent qualification for the job", her being subjected to a state ethics investigation, her controversial stand against giving same-sex partners a court mandated insurance benefit (which she later vetoed following the advice of the state's attorney general but she signed a bill allowing the legislators to call a "special election" which will consider a constitutional amendment banning what the court has just upheld), and finally the mostly irrelevant but much publicized pregnancy of her 17 year-old daughter.

While facing criticism for his choice of picking Palin, McCain has definitely gotten the much needed steam for his campaign. Nevermind the fact that McCain did not actually know her and talked to her but once before he picked her as a running mate, Palin at first appeared as a pristine conservative with enough know-how and a lot of charisma to boost McCain. But as election day nears, skeletons are bound to be dug up and exposed for everyone to see.

As to why this matters much to a Filipino... it's simple. It is because whatever the outcome of the US elections will be, the emerging economic policies from these victors will directly affect our economy. Not to mention that as a former colony of the US from 1898-1946, the Philippines still has a knack for emulating the US rule. And while personally I was also smitten by Palin's seemingly underdog-ish bid for the vice presidential seat,being better informed has opened my eyes that Palin is definitely NOT the better choice. While inexperience is something that is easily remedied, her moralistic stand against equality is something that is inherently hers and cannot be untaught.

So here's more of Governor Palin. Click on provided links for complete articles about the Gov'nr.

(This is solely my opinion on the matter and is not meant to offend staunch Republicans.)Finally on a related note, click here to read Obama's view on the criticisms against the pregnancy of Palin's 17 year old daughter. Lemme just say... Yay Obama.

  1. Kapag nakikita ko si Sarah Palin, naalala ko yung TV Series na Commander in Chief.

  2. whatever it is. I am pro-republican. I hope Mc Cain and palin could nail it. I hate OBAMA.arrrghhh

  3. Go Hillary!!!! Lol.

  4. i am republican too so, i don't care what they says about palin.

  5. Totally respect that. To each his own eh? :)

  6. "her controversial stand against giving same-sex partners a court mandated insurance benefit (which she later vetoed following the advice of the state's attorney general but she signed a bill allowing the legislators to call a "special election" which will consider a constitutional amendment banning what the court has just upheld)"

    Umm...whatever you feel about this issue, please keep in mind that what Sarah Palin was working for here was to take the decision OUT of the hands of a few appointed judges and put it back where it belongs- in the hands of the PEOPLE.

    She understood when she did this that it may very well have gone the same way, but she wanted to give the people the right to vote on it.

    I dont agree with every issue she stands for, but her idea that WE should have the right to choose, not be told what we should choose is something that her detractors are REALLY trying to play down...just keep that in mind when you read their talking points:-)

  7. While it is true that the people should be given the right to choose regarding the issue, the same vote cost them almost 4x more than what the court appointed benefits cost. If the goal of this is simply so that "we are to know what the people want" and not simply overturn the decision, isn't that too costly a price to pay?


    As succinctly said by the Alaskan blog, The Gay Frontier:
    "Of course there will be more discussion as conservative legislators are not going to swallow this pill easily. Although they have said they would abide by the courts decision, I for one don't expect them to do so. They are a nasty bunch that believe they have "God" on their side.

    As for our new Governor? Forget it! Although she is abiding by the court decision, she is not helping us out. She has signed a bill allowing the legislators to call a "special election" which will consider a constitutional amendment banning what the court has just upheld."

    Of course we cannot hope to agree with every politician's stand on every issue, and I am sure that Palin at some point has stood for something that I have felt strongly for, this just isn't one of them.

    As for her qualifications, The View has given an interesting debate about it, and I personally think that she has what it takes to at least learn the ropes fast enough to effectively lead, I just think that in the US of A, there are hundreds of more qualified leaders, with no holier than thou attitude that ARE ready to lead.
