McCain's creationist running mate

The Minnesota Independent has a fairly damning summary of Sarah Palin. The worst part is she seems to favor teaching creationism along side evolution:

The volatile issue of teaching creation science in public schools popped up in the Alaska governor’s race this week when Republican Sarah Palin said she thinks creationism should be taught alongside evolution in the state’s public classrooms.

Palin was answering a question from the moderator near the conclusion of Wednesday night’s televised debate on KAKM Channel 7 when she said, ‘Teach both. You know, don’t be afraid of information. Healthy debate is so important, and it’s so valuable in our schools. I am a proponent of teaching both.’

She later clarified to say “…she would not push the state Board of Education to add such creation-based alternatives to the state’s required curriculum.”

She’s pro-life, pro-drilling-in-ANWR and she “invokes God in every decision she makes”.

I’m glad McCain chose a woman and I’m not going to condemn her myself until I learn more. But so far it does not look good.

One thought on “McCain's creationist running mate

  1. fishdweeb says:

    She was the mayor of a smallish alaska town. (see wallis)
    Her husband works for BP (see big oil)
    She is a former Pagaent winner (see ‘hot’)
    She holds a BA in Journalism (see Idaho….)

    She has what economic experience?
    She has what foreign policy experience?

    McCain is 72….and in questionable health.

    This has to fall in the WTF catagory for any honest republican.
    I am also waiting to learn more…..but what I just read on a couple web sites is not impressive….

    Do they think that she will capture the feminist vote? or the Hillary vote?
    pretty big gamble in my opinion.
