Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney are kindred spirits. They both come from the extreme GOP right wing, put Big Oil over alternative energy, misrepresent science, use their positions to punish those who disagree with them and oppose solutions to global warming. Voters who recognize Cheney's mistakes should not logically want Palin to have four more years to repeat them.

Beauty is only skin deep, and our problems are too serious. McCain could have picked a GOP woman who was more qualified and moderate but instead he chose right-wing appeasement and political expediency over what was best for our country.
