Friends, compatriots, fellow-lamenters,
>> >> We are writing to you because of the fury and dread we
>> have felt since the announcement of Sarah Palin as the
>> Vice-Presidential candidate for the Republican Party. We
>> believe that this terrible decision has surpassed mere
>> partisanship, and that it is a dangerous farce on the part
>> of a pandering and rudderless Presidential candidate that
>> has a real possibility of becoming fact.
>> Perhaps like us, as American women, you share the fear
>> of what Ms. Palin and her professed beliefs and proven
>> record could lead to for ourselves and for our present or
>> future daughters. To date, she is against sex education,
> ;> birth control, the pro-choice platform, environmental
>> protection, alternative energy development, freedom of
>> speech (as mayor she wanted to ban books and attempted to
>> fire the librarian who stood against her), gun control, the
>> separation of church and state, and polar bears. To say
>> nothing of her complete lack of real preparation to become
>> the second-most-powerful person on the planet.
>> We want to clarify that we are not against Sarah Palin
>> as a woman, a mother, or, for that matter, a parent of a
>> pregnant teenager, but solely as a rash, incompetent, and
>> all together devastating choice for Vice President. Ms.
>> Palin's political views are in every way a slap in the
>> face to the accomplishments that our mothers and
>> grandmothers and great-grandmothers so> fiercely fought
>> for, and that we've so demonst rably benefited from.
>> *First and foremost, Ms. Palin does not represent us.
>> She does not demonstrate or uphold our interests as American
>> women. It is presumed that the inclusion of a woman on the
>> Republican ticket could win over women voters. We want to
>> disagree, publicly.*
>> *Therefore, we invite you to reply here <
> with a short, succinct
>> message about why you, as a woman living in this country, do
>> not support this candidate as second-in- command for our
>> nation.*
>> Please include your name (last initial is fine), age,
>> and place of residence.
>> We will post your responses on a blog called "Women Against Sarah Palin,"
> which we intend to publicize
>> as widely as possible. Please send us your reply at your
>> earliest convenience. The greater the volume of responses
>> we receive, the stronger our message will be.

>> >> >> Thank you for your time and action.
>> *VIVA!*

>> >> >> Sincerely,
>> >> >> Quinn Latimer and Lyra Kilston
>> New York, NY
