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.

An Ohio Woman Says NO—"Praying that she doesn't get in"

As a 60-year-old woman, I would like to say that Sarah Palin does not represent anything that I find sacred or good in women. She incites people to become violent (as in her speeches against Obama) and her speeches do not bring great expectations for a future for our country but only fear—fear of a black man becoming President.

I live in a small town in Ohio, near Youngstown, where many of our companies have either gone out of business or sent overseas. I do not hear any ideas from Palin about what John McCain will do for us, only cruel remarks from a person who professes to be a mother. Where is her caring about what happens to us? I believe John McCain made the biggest mistake of his life by choosing her. He should have chosen someone who cares about the country and not about how much camera time she can get.

Praying that she doesn't get in,
-A. Ryan, 60, Ohio
