More Alaskans Show Up To Protest Palin Than To Applaud Her
According to KTUU-TV, "the crowd of demonstrators cheering and chanting at the [anti-Palin] rally numbered more than a thousand at its peak," while only "hundreds of Palin supporters showed up to see the governor at her own farewell rally Saturday morning."
"She's so unbelievably inexperienced and she's a heartbeat away from the presidency," said Sondra Tompkins, who has usually voted Republican but says she will not support John McCain with Palin on the ticket.
Joining a small crowd of people supporting Palin at the protest was a real deep-thinking GOP voter, Evelyn Aslou, who listed her primary qualifications to be president and vice president as being a military Veteran and a Mom, respectively.
"I identify with her as a mom," Aslou said. "Of course McCain, what else can you say, he is a war hero."
Damn. I'm a Veteran and a parent and only wish someone had told my wife and me sooner that we were so qualified to lead the country.
