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.

Video: Your Letters Live! October 30th

Dear Readers,

We are excited to announce that on Thursday, October 30th, from 1 to 9 pm EST, a live webathon (internet streamed video) will be broadcast that features American women reading your letters.

As part of the website Real Women Respond to Palin, dozens of women will read from the hundreds of thousands of letters you have sent in over the past two months, which eloquently and convincingly argue why Sarah Palin does not represent you, and is an unprepared and dangerously divisive candidate.

As some of you may know, your letters on this website have received national and international attention, with articles running in the Washington Post, the New York Observer, the Huffington Post, and abroad in London's Guardian, Paris's Le Monde, ZDF Television in Germany, and the Go Africa television broadcast in 16 African countries.

The world has been very interested in what American women have had to say about Sarah Palin, and your voices are one of the places they turn to.

Please tune in tomorrow either on this website, or on Real Women Respond to Palin, to watch your letters and sentiments expressed on video. The webathon has been produced by Kathryn Velvel Jones, an American woman who received our initial email, and quickly decided that she had to do something to advance our cause. Thank you, Kathryn!

And thank all of you for sounding the alarm that has rung around the world!

-Lyra & Quinn
