Letter to Palin from a Concerned Mother

Dear Sarah,

I'm raising my daughter to be a woman of tolerance, compassion, strength, and moral character. Your latest smear campaign against Senator Obama is simply demoralizing and disgusting. As a woman, you are responsible for the image you choose to project to our youth. Hate, mixed with a proclivity for violence are things I do not wish to for my daughter to witness in a leader. We want change, not school yard bullying. Our country needs a steady hand, not fear and panic. You call yourself a maverick, yet you offer no solutions to the very serious problems our country faces. You had a moment the other day at your rally to cast off intolerance and hate, yet you did not speak out against it. What else would you allow as a leader?
