Palin for Planned Parenthood

A friend sent me this funny email:
We may have thought we wanted a woman on a national political ticket,
but the joke has really been on us, hasn't it? Are you as sick to your stomach
as I am at the thought of Sarah Palin as Vice President of the United States ?

Since Palin gave her speech accepting the Republican nomination for the
Vice Presidency, Barack Obama's campaign has raised over $10 million dollars.
Some of you may already be supporting the Obama campaign financially;
others of you may still be a little honked off over the primaries. None of you,
however, can be happy with Palin's selection, especially on her positions on
women's issues. So, if you feel you can't support the Obama campaign financially,
may I suggest the following fiendishly brilliant alternative?

Make a donation to Planned Parenthood -- in Sarah Palin's name.
A Planned Parenthood donation is tax deductible, where a political donation isn't.
And here's the good part: when you make a donation to PP in her name,
they'll send her a card telling her that the donation has been made in her honor!
Here's the link: (
go to Donate, then Honorary Gifts.)


You'll need to fill in the address to let PP know where to send the 'in Sarah Palin's
honor' card. I suggest you use the address for the McCain campaign headquarters,
which is:

McCain for President
1235 S. Clark Street, 1st Floor
Arlington , VA 22202

Oh wow, what a great idea! Why didn't I think of that?!

"I'm truly offended by Palin,'' said Republican Philinia Lehr, 37, of Largo, a full-time mother with a nursing degree who voted for George Bush in 2004. Like Palin, she has five children and she doesn't buy that the Alaska governor can adequately balance her family and the vice presidency.

"You're somebody's mom and what are you going to do, say, 'Excuse me, country, hold on?' … She's preaching that she's this mom of the year and taking that poor little baby all over everywhere. And, you know, what she's doing to her 17-year-old daughter is just appalling.'' Lehr said she's bothered by the way Palin's pregnant daughter has been brought into the national spotlight.
