Palin is making my head hurt.

Mrs. Underdog and I had a long discussion about Sarah Palin last night. The overbearing, over coverage of this lady is making my head hurt. A few of the thoughts that we chewed on last night:
  1. Palin is running for political office, not a church post. What difference does that make?
  2. Its great that she decided to have Trig, but what about now parenting Trig? Isn't that equally as important?
  3. Why are Christians (even prominent pastors) so divided in their opinion about Palin?
  4. Is is better to not vote than to vote against your conscience?
  5. I bet that the Bible character Deborah has never received so much attention.
  6. Deborah did a pretty good job as far as I can tell.
  7. I wonder what Palin's husband thinks about her aspirations?
  8. Her inexperience in Washington is a positive, not a negative, attribute.
  9. God was not surprised by Palin's nomination.
  10. If everyone adopted the "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all" rule, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, and the political conventions would completely disappear.

Any form of government run by foolish, self-centered individuals will gradually become a platform for those least qualified to govern. Our fledgling democracy has reached that point in a record amount of time.
