You go Girl! - Quote for today.

The women of America aren’t finished yet… We can shatter that glass ceiling once and for all!”. Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin and the presumptive republican veep nominee on Friday August 29th, 2008.

On the Iraq war: "I've been so focused on state government, I haven't really focused much on the war in Iraq" on the 1st of March 07.

"Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also, for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending out U.S. soldiers on a task that is from God. That's what we have to make sure that we're praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God's plan."

On a $30 billion national gas pipeline project that she wanted built in the state of Alaska. "I think God's will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built, so pray for that"

If this is the way we are planning on breaking that glass ceiling, it is indeed pathetic.

From Gail Collins of the Times...

Whether you liked her or not, Hillary Clinton convinced the nation that women could be qualified to both run the country and be commander in chief. That was an enormous breakthrough, and Palin’s nomination feels, in comparison, like a step back. If she’s only on the ticket to try to get disaffected Clinton supporters to cross over, it’s a bad choice.

Wasn't sure which way you were headed with this post until that last line...I agree, she really is a pathetic choice of VP.
