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.

As a 59-year-old female resident of Golden, Colorado, I am outraged that ANY political party would present a candidate with the deficiencies that Sarah Palin exhibits with the expectation that women would vote for her. It was an irresponsible and dangerous choice to offer our country in a time of political and economic crisis.
-Diane V., 59, Golden, CO

I cannot support a candidate for Vice President who has such a narrow view of a democratic society. She doesn't represent those of us who know our own minds and believe that morals cannot be legislated. I became a woman during the era when it was common to deny women information about contraception and termination of pregnancy. It leads to catastrophic results.
-Teresa J., 60, Loveland, CO

As a mother whose only child is in the military, I am horrified at the possibility of our next president being a person with Palin’s background (or lack thereof). Her beliefs and attitude are truly polarizing, egocentric, and cater to religious extremism. My son and his friends are also scared of her… The leader of our country should be an intelligent, thoughtful, and cautious person who can look at all sides of an issue, listen to people expert in each area, and gather reams of information before making decisions that put our young people at risk of death or maiming for life. I have heard more than I can stand about Sarah’s glasses and shoes and how cute she is. These people obviously do not have children in war… How can we put this person in charge of all the brave men and women who fight for our country? This would be disaster for the country with serious consequences for the world.
-Judy W., 58, Glenwood Springs, CO

The USA is going to have to work hard to rebuild our credibility around the world. If Sarah Palin is our VP, her lack of experience in foreign policy (and her obvious lack of respect and regard for members of other nations) will only take us further down the Bush/Cheney road of arrogance and intolerance. And her ignorance of the threat of global warming is not only terrifying, it is downright dangerous. It's like the Dewar quote, "Minds are like parachutes; they only work when they're open." How can Sarah Palin properly represent a nation as diverse as ours if she believes that we should be censured, deprived, and molded into one neat sound bite?
-Jade M., 35, southwest Colorado

I am definitely against Sarah Palin. I am a middle-class mother and I do not think Sarah Palin has the intelligence, experience, or compassion to lead our country.
-Mimi S., 48, Fort Collins, CO

In the wake of her perceived-by-some win during the recent debate, I must say how empty and slogan-filled I thought it was. She was clearly well-trained, apparently came across to many as articulate and passionate, but had nothing of substance to say that someone hadn't told her to say. I also find her mocking, derisive undertone regarding Obama and Democrats downright offensive. The thought of her possibly being so close to the presidency is appalling to me.
-Robyn J., Denver, CO

Sarah Palin is definitely unqualified to serve as Vice President, and potentially, as President of the United States. John McCain has insulted all Americans by believing that we are going to be impressed by, and elect, a person that reminds us of our next door neighbor. We are a country of intelligent thinkers who will not be fooled by this farce. Shame on McCain for giving us so little credit.
-Teresa B., Gunnison, CO
