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.

Early Bird Special


Dear Readers,

With many states—Ohio, Florida, and New Mexico, among them—now open for early voting, it has been predicted that more than one-third of American voters will cast their vote before Election Day this year. We can't help but be envious, as our state does not have such a policy. But in light of the states that do—crucial swing states included—we'd like to invite you to write us letters about your experience casting your early vote for president in 2008.

What was it like?
What were your feelings leaving your voting booth? Empowerment, hope, fear?
How was voting this year different than when you last voted, in 2004 or at any other time?
How did seeing Sarah Palin's name in the booth affect you?

We can't help but be interested, and we are sure that our many of our readers are too.

Lyra & Quinn

P.S. And for those of you voting November 4th, like us, we hope you'll send us your stories so that we can post them too.
