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.

Already voted!

October 6 was the first day for early voting in Indiana. I took the day off from work to drive to Danville and cast my vote for Obama/Biden. There was just a small line in quiet, Republican Hendricks County, IN, but the lines have since grown. I still have fears of votes being lost or not counted. As a mother and grandmother, the idea of a McCain/Palin victory is more than I can bear. I volunteered to be a poll worker on Election Day and am being as vigilant as possible, during this most important election of my lifetime.

I went to vote early here in the middle of the morning, the line was already 1 and a 1/2 hours long! In the afternoon it was over 2 hours long! We are PASSIONATE about this race here in Georgia and we are standing in line for hours, weeks before voting day, to get our vote in. The goal? To "Turn Georgia Blue!"
-Cole, Georgia

While I did not vote in a booth early, I did however send in my absentee ballot the same day I got it. With any election, I feared my vote might get misplaced or lost all together but it's the risk I'm willing to take to make sure it counts on time. I voted in the 2004 Presidential election in a booth and when I left, the attendees were talking about how they thought they lost a few votes with a malfunction. I'll never forget that. I was devastated. I barely noticed Palin's name or any other Republican name for that matter. After a long struggle of giving up my dream of a Hillary ticket, I was so excited to be placing my vote for Obama/Biden!!
