Skip to comments.Alaskan Bryn Mawr Graduate Trashes Sarah.
Posted on 09/07/2008 3:38:13 AM PDT by BluH2o
This is an email I received from a good friend in New York City. She is a Bryn Mawr graduate, and is a physician currently engaged in cancer research at Columbia University. This is an email she received from a Bryn Mawr classmate of hers who lives in Alaska.
Because you, like me, may never have heard of Sarah Palin until today, you may find this an interesting perspective from an Alaskan resident.
Begin forwarded message:
Subject: just in from Bonnie's classmate
Dear classmates -
As an Alaskan, I am writing to give all of you some information on Sarah Palin, Senator McCain's choice for VP. As an Alaska voter, I know more than most of you about her and, frankly, I am horrified that he picked her.
The most accurate description of her is red neck. Her husband works in the oil fields of Prudhoe Bay and races snow mobiles. She is a life time member of the NRA and has worked tirelessly to allow indiscriminate hunting of wildlife in Alaska, particularly wolves and bears. She has spent millions of Alaska state dollars on aerial hunting of these predators from helicopters and airplanes, dollars that should have been spent, for example, on Alaska's failing school system.We have the lowest rate of high school graduation in the country.
Not all of you may think aerial predator hunting is so bad, but how anyone (other than Alaska wolf-haters, of which there are many, most without teeth), could think this use of funds is appropriate is beyond me.
If you want to know more about the aerial hunting travesty, let me know and I will send some links to informative web sites.
She has been a strong supporter of increased use of fossil fuels, yet the McCain campaign has the nerve to say she has "green" policies. The only thing green about Sarah Palin is her lack of experience.
She has consistently supported drilling in ANWR, use of coal-burning power plants (as I write this, a new coal plant is being built in her home town of Wasilla), strip mining, and almost anything else that will unnecessarily exploit the diminishing resources of Alaska and destroy its environment.
Prior to her one year as governor of Alaska, she was mayor of Wasilla, a small red neck town outside Anchorage.
The average maximum education level of parents of junior high school kids in Wasilla is 10th grade.
Unfortunately, I have to go to Wasilla every week to get groceries and other supplies, so I have continual contact with the people who put Palin in office in the first place.
I know what I'm talking about.
These people don't have a concept of the world around them or of the serious issues facing the US. Furthermore, they don't care. So long as they can go out and hunt their moose every fall, kill wolves and bears and drive their snow mobiles and ATVs through every corner of the wilderness, they're happy. I wish I were exaggerating.
Sarah Palin is currently involved in a political corruption scandal.
She fired an individual in law enforcement here because she didn't like how he treated one of her relatives during a divorce. The man's performance and ability weren't considered; it was a totally personal firing and is currently under investigation.
While the issue isn't close to the scandal of Ted Steven's corruption, it shows that Palin isn't "squeaky clean" and causes me to think there may be more issues that could come to light. Clearly McCain doesn't care.
When you line Palin up with Biden, the comparison would be laughable if it weren't so serious. Sarah Palin knows nothing of economics (admittedly a weak area for McCain), or of international affairs, knows nothing of national government, Social Security, unemployment, health care systems - you name it.
The idea of her meeting with heads of foreign governments around the world truly frightens me.
In an increasingly dangerous world, with the economy in shambles in the US, Sarah Palin is uniquely UNqualified to be vice president.
John McCain is not a young man. Should something happen to him such that the vice president had to step in, it would destroy our country and possibly the world to have someone as inexperienced and inappropriate as Sarah Palin.
The choice of Palin is a cheap shot by McCain to try to get Hillary supporters to vote for him.
when McCain introduced her today, Palin had the nerve to compare herself with Hillary and Geraldine Ferraro.
Sarah Palin, you are no Hillary Clinton.
To those of you who, like me, supported Hillary and were upset that she did not get the nomination, please don't think that Sarah Palin is a worthy substitute.
If you supported Hillary, regardless of what you think the media and the Democratic party may have done to undermine her campaign, the person to support now is Obama, not Sarah Palin.
To those of you who are independent or undecided, don't let the choice of Palin sway you in favor of McCain. Choosing her shows how unqualified McCain is to be president.
To those of you who are conservative, I guess you have no choice for president. But please try to see how the poor choice of Palin tells us a great deal about McCain's judgment.
While the political posturing inherent in the choice of Palin is obvious, the more serious issue is the fact that the VP is, literally, a heartbeat away from the presidency. Sarah Palin is totally and unequivocally unqualified to be vice president, let alone president.
I know this is a lengthy and emotional email, but the stakes are high. I thought it might help for all of you, regardless of political affiliation, to know something about Palin from someone who has to live with her administration in Alaska on a daily basis.
Read the e-mail.The poor unfortunate person suffers from Kool-aid poisoning.
Yehaw, lets lynch us some rednecks.
This must be one of the 20% that doesn’t approve of Gov. Sarah Palin in Alaska.
WOW, Nice!! Always good to have a well reasoned unbiased opinion of an individual. /sarc
Sounds like she hit all the talking points, rumors, and liberal panic-buttons. Nice slam on “rednecks”. And those poor wolf with no teeth! They must not have universal health coverage.
Thanks for the chuckle.
this is from a doctor who supposedly has love and tolerance for her fellow man?
It seems as if this “Jackie S.” is profoundly uncomfortable living among the inbred redneck yahoos of Alaska and pines every so keenly for the Philadelphia Main Line.
This whole diatribe is elitist nonsense and if you substitute “West Virginia” for “Alaska”, you can see exactly what I am talking about.
I got an e-mail from my cousins roomate best friend back when she was in college and it says that this thread is the ghey.
And this garbage belongs on DU not Free Republic.
I resent those remarks!
The original e-mail was sent to a fellow Bryn Mawr graduate who is a physician currently engaged in cancer research at Columbia University. This is an email she received from a Bryn Mawr classmate of hers who lives in Alaska.
Jackie S. needs to get over herself.
McCain chose Palin to rally his base, which wasn’t very enthused. Many Republicans were going to hold their nose and vote for him simply because “Obama’s worse” and I believe that a considerable number weren’t going to vote the Republican ticket at all.
Any Hillary! voters he attracts because of his pick are an added bonus.
My point precisely when I responded to the e-mail, only I mentioned her 80% approval rating in Alaska as governor ... highest of any governor in the U.S.. Also mentioned the fact that Bryn Mawr was an incubator for liberals.
Get a grip people. This is no more real than any other internet chain letter.
All this says is that the Alaskans live fuller, richer lives than us Pennsylvanians...
They cling to God, guns AND SNOWMOBILES :-)
Snowmobiles, otherwise known as snow machines in Alaska.
That bitch is MARRIED! AND I'M NOT!
".. works "
AND SHE GOT A WORKING HUSBAND, NOT HAVING TO SUPPORT A 'WRITER' OR AN 'ARTISTS'!
"...in the oil fields of Prudhoe Bay"
(Jackie S's thoughts) "HE'S RUGGED, HAS A TOOL BELT AND ISN'T A NEW YORK CAN'T HANG A PICTURE METROSEXUAL HAND BAG COLLECTOR! THAT BITCH, BITCH BITCH...I HATE HER!"
" She is a life time member of the NRA...particularly wolves and bears
No doubt Jackie S has to call one of those services where the guy comes in the little truck to find the chipmunk in your house.
"The average maximum(Is it average, maximum or mean average? No wonder cancer resurch goes nowhere.)
.. education level of parents of junior high school kids in Wasilla is 10th grade.
How did those ignorant rednecks, build those houses, plumb and wire them, build the pipelines, run the petro plants, fly float planes, race customized snowmobiles, track grizzlies in the woods? There must be a secret squad of Alan Alda metro's and lesbian construction workers that set everything up.
"Unfortunately, I have to go to Wasilla every week to get groceries and other supplies, so I have continual contact with
theTHOSE TYPES OF people.
So Jackie S is dependent for food and everything else on...on....dumb rednecks? So how dumb and pathetic is she?
I could go on.
Oh yes - we all know that ‘indiscriminate hunting’ is the first and last goal of the NRA and hunters. It’s simply another lib whining that ‘guns are scary’ with nice furry animals to frame the picture.
What a crock. Hunters want healthy game and poaching endangers the health of any herd through sheer attrition or an imbalance in male/female, young/old etc.
Another lib who cannot comprehend that others have different views than her own and therefore are threatening.
Jackie “S”....wow, I am SURE this is real! Let’s throw that sarah out on her tush! ROTFLMBO!!
They really do think Americans are stupid, don’t they?
