Sign the petition -- Sarah Palin: Please Resign.

Prominent conservative columnist and former Palin supporter Kathleen Parker called for Sarah Palin to resign from the Republican ticket. Even a conservative columnist and former Palin supporter is saying it: Palin is far from Vice-Presidential material. Can you sign our petition asking her to resign? Full petition statement:

Governor Palin, for the good of the country, please step down as John McCain's running mate.

Don't worry -- we won't spam you -- we'll just keep you updated on our campaign, and let you know about other opportunities to stop John McCain and Sarah Palin. You'll be able to unsubscribe at any time.

Come, come, my conservative friend, wipe the dew off your spectacles, and see that the world is moving."

—Elizabeth Cady Stanton

"And I am especially proud to say in the week we celebrate the anniversary of women's suffrage [that she is] a devoted, a devoted wife and mother of five."
—John McCain introducing Sarah Palin

"If this doesn't resonate with every woman in America, I'll eat my hat."
—Alaska delegate Bill Noll on Sarah Palin

Dear Bill, get ready to eat your hat. —The Eds.

Corrections - Eds.

Dear readers,

Because we are disgusted and disheartened by the smear-campaigns, exaggerations, and outright lies that are so prevalent in our political landscape, we want to clarify two facts that we got wrong.

In our initial letter, sent out on Wednesday night, we stated that Governor Palin fired the librarian in Wasilla. In fact, while she did send the librarian a termination letter, after great public dissent (i.e. community organizing), she retracted it.

Secondly, Ms. Palin is not anti-birth control. She is a member of FFI, Feminists for Life, an anti-abortion, pro-birth control organization.

We apologize.

Unfortunately, during her speech at the Republican Convention last week, Ms. Palin read from a script that contained many egregious falsehoods about her opponent's record, intentions, and policies. We hope that she too (or her scriptwriters at any rate) might have the integrity to come forward and admit their errors.

But we won't hold our breath.
