John McCain announced that he was running for president to confront the "transcendent challenge" of the 21st century, "radical Islamic extremism," contrasting it with "stability, tolerance and democracy." But the values of his handpicked running mate, Sarah Palin, more resemble those of Muslim fundamentalists than they do those of the Founding Fathers. On censorship, the teaching of creationism in schools, reproductive rights, attributing government policy to God's will and climate change, Palin agrees with Hamas and Saudi Arabia rather than supporting tolerance and democratic precepts. What is the difference between Palin and a Muslim fundamentalist? Lipstick.

Topic; Sprint's advertizing in Salon.com
Please read this vile hit piece which you have paid for so you understand why I will never do business with Sprint. http://www.salon.com/opinion/feature/2008/09/09/palin_fundamentalist/
I will be spreading the connection between Sprint and Salon's filth as long as you continue to advertize on their slime filled pages.
Newsweek has already debunked those lies. Sarah Palin never asked anyone to censor books from a library. Nor did she espouse teaching creationism in schools. These are LIES.
Liberal desperation is ceaselessly hilarious!
“Any such reminders in public life will be viewed as imposing religious beliefs when in fact, they just exist, and its the persons conscience that is making him feel uncomfortable.”
I think you’ve correctly identified the base cause of the left’s “outrage” at religion (well, at least against Christianity), really...
I’ve seen this very thing in my own children (at its most basic level). I’ll ask them to do something (help wash dishes, change the laundry, etc...). I won’t nag, but after a while if they haven’t done what I’ve asked, I will ask them again. Sometimes I get - “Gosh, I’m SO sorry... I just FORGOT! Quit trying to make me feel guilty, MOM!!!” and I will explain to them I’m using the same words (and tone of voice) as I used the first time when I asked, the only difference is that now your conscience is telling you I shouldn’t have to keep asking - you KNOW in your heart you should have done it the first time.
I think this is EXACTLY why people don’t want to be reminded that there are others who live a certain moral code. It is their own actions, and some basic fundamental understanding at play that makes them feel as if they are being “hounded” even when no-one is talking to them in particular. As you said — it’s their conscience — not anything anyone is doing TO them.
“Not only does Palin not believe global warming is “man-made,” she favors massive new drilling to spew more carbon into the atmosphere.”
You’ve posted another lesson from offspring concerning our spiritual relationship with God.
My children have taught me more about the fallen sinner’s rebellion to God than anything else in my life ever has.
Is it any wonder that the Left, and Satan, are anti-children and anti-family?
They are such a great personal growth tool and a blessing from God.

A VERY good idea. We should hit all of their major advertisers.
Obama’s fight the smears site should be retitled fight WITH smears...
“What’s the difference between Palin and Muslim fundamentalists? Lipstick”
Wow. The author proves that Palin is actually no different than a fundamentalist muslim. Except that sane people know there is a world of difference. Too bad there were no sane editors at Salon to smack some sense into this dipstick and keep him from making a fool of himself.
That is SO true... I’ve learned a lot myself - and it’s made me look back and examine so many things in my own life, and not just from my own childhood either! LOL
Ahhh... this hit piece says it all.... the liberal elitists are really, really out of touch with the “Great American Fly-over”. Like I have said before, hitting rock bottom isn’t enough for you guys, you just keep digging. It is obvious that either Lefties didn’t learn from McGovern... and/or they have stopped teaching that part of history in those lalala classrooms at those lalala universities....
it's more about your role as a "child of God" that you get the training in when you become a parent
Liberals only criticize moslem fundamentalists in order to condemn Fundamentalist Protestants. Other than that they're a cherished part of the family of the "oppressed."
Oh, right. Supposed to get it implemented via the 9 robed unelected "imposers" instead. It's all about retaining the right to kill babies. KILL, KILL, KILL. Leftism is a mental retardation. These posters should change the name from Salon to Colon.
What’s the difference between the Liberal Press in America and the Josef Goebbel’s Nazi Propaganda dept.? The swastika!
I think the burkas Palin wears, as a fundamentalist muslim, are much nicer than those worn by the other fundamentalist muslim women. They need to follow her lead. So does Juan Cole.
Here on FR, there are a few people who are anti Palin for the very reasons mentioned. Never mind most of the points are bogus and the librarian one is not as it is being represented.
