SACROSANCT…(adj: “especially or superlatively sacred or inviolable“) WHY ??
I don’t get it. What is sacrosanct about Sarah Palin?
Call me dense but how can the Republicans get away with declaring “hands off” Palin? What makes her any different from all the other politicos running for office?
Here is a woman who could (heaven forbid!) become the actual President of the United States, and yet the press is being asked to treat her with kid gloves. We need, and deserve, a thorough look into all the aspects of her life ... not just the white-wash that is being presented.
You’d better believe that the merest hint of wrong-doing by Obama or Biden would be fair game for the opposition and the same needs to go for Palin.
Ever since Bush was re-elected I’ve lost faith with my fellow voters. How could we (in 2004) possibly choose to continue the preceding 4 years ... but we did, and look where we are now???
It’s pretty obvious that I am not a sophisticated political maven. I am just an ordinary, run-of-the-mill voter (who has been voting for over 55 years) and I intend to make my small voice heard on election day. I pray that there will be many debates between the candidates before that day comes.
I also pray that my fellow voters have matured enough to be able to put aside petty prejudices about race, color and gender. The rest of the world is watching closely ... the least we can do is to insist that the press scrutinize our candidates just as closely.
