    Thanks to the friend who passed along this constructive opportunity to let Sarah know we’re thinking of her, and to do some good as well!  I plan to chip in, and i hope you do too.

    The smallest donation is $5: The cost: priceless.

    Make a donation to Planned Parenthood in Sarah Palin’s name.
    When you make a donation to PP (secure site) in her name, they’ll send her a card stating the donation was made in her honor.

    Here’s the link to Planned Parenthood’s website:

    Open ‘Donate’. Click ‘Honorary or Memorial Donations’.
    Fill in your info and donation, then scroll down to ‘I would like to
    give to’ -

    fill in ‘Sarah Palin’ and use the McCain campaign headquarters address:

    1235 S. Clark Street
    1st Floor
    Arlington, VA 22202

    Please consider forwarding this to others, and urge them to do the same.

    Greatest idea EVER.
    I stumbled this.
    I e-mail chained this

    I am sending $50, but $5 at a time. To get even more bang for my buck.

    HATE PALIN. Wrote a post on it- and BOY I am not alone!!!!

    Did you consider that Sarah Palin could use this to counter attacks on her by saying she has donated x thousands of dollars to PP - I’m assuming from this that it would all be in her name and her tax deduction?

    Frank Paynter 09.24.08 at 7:22

    The donor of record is the person who gives the money. This satisfies the tax porpoises and the school of barracuda, swimming with which they are often found. The assignment of the donation in honor or in memory merely indicates to the recipient (PP) that the donor wishes to acknowledge the person memorialized (which in turn triggers a process at Planned Parenthood to let Sarah know that we’re thinking of her).

    Love the concept!!!! Did you see her interview with Katie Couric? It scared the hell outta me!!!!!!!!!

    My contention is that being a mother is a full-time job at the best of times if one does it right. And as the mother of a pregnant teen and a special needs child, she needs to get out of politics and go home and take care of her five kids. Yeah, that sounds old-fashioned but I’m one of those people who put her kids first and it worked. Sarah Palin is a joke and I don’t want the joke to be on us. McCain’s handlers really dropped the ball on this. I hope Joe Biden makes mincemeat of her in the debate.

    Frank Paynter 09.28.08 at 3:42

    Me too, Kay! I’m concerned she’s going to capitalize on her “special needs baby” by fronting for programs that support families raising Down syndrome children and others with “special needs.” In the eyes of many, this gives her a pass on her responsibility for her own family; and, it and ingratiates her with large segments of the population: from women who are conflicted about stay-at-home-motherhood versus paid childcare and career to people with a concern for the kids who may not look any deeper than what they hear about Palin’s good intentions.

    Yes, she scares me. What’s more, the fact that so many Republicans will vote with their party rather than ask themselves what will happen if she has to step up to the Presidency REALLY scares me.

    I’m 51 years old, and don’t know what all these younger women in the home and garden blogs (where I typically blog each day) are thinking, supporting who my 33 year old daughter refers to as “a man in a skirt.” What about the right to our own bodies, I try and tell them. They close their ears. I am appalled that this woman might get one pointy-toed high heel into the White House. Glad to find some people who still have good sense somewhere. I’m new, by the way.

    Frank Paynter 09.28.08 at 7:53

    Hi Brenda,
    I clicked through to your blog and I loved the pictures. It’s nice that you’re sharing these rich, colorful facets of your life. I’m not sure I get the “man in a skirt” bit. Seems mighty insulting to men. Sarah Palin’s naked ambition is so obvious that it’s embarrassing. I want to say, “Lady, put some clothes on.” Hopefully people will use good judgment when they are alone with their consciences in the voting booth. Unfortunately, there seem to be a lot of people who want to be fooled by people like Ms. Palin.

    Muhamid 10.07.08 at 5:36

    I am assuming that you are all ignorant to the quality of life that individuals with Down syndrome can have when they are loved and supported. Your stupid little idea to mock Sarah for having a child with Down syndrome is bigotry and hateful to all people with Down syndrome and their families. Of course, someone thinks this is cute, so I am sending 100 to the KKK in honor of Barack Obama and I think I will make a donation to some skin head domestic terrorist group on his behalf. Now that make sense doesn’t it? No it doesn’t that would be as stupid as you folks are here.

    Linda 10.09.08 at 9:14

    Yes, because making a statement about personal freedoms is exactly the same as making a stand for racism.


    autodidact 10.09.08 at 4:20

    Dear Muhamid,
    Sarah Palin, along with her child, isn’t being mocked because of Down’s syndrome or because of “special needs” people. The point is that Mrs. Palin has put this fact forward in support of her qualifications for vice president (and, implicitly, for president). It’s analogous to a small-town (male) mayor claiming “I just spent 18 months in the hospital, and that makes me qualified to be vice president.”

    I already am a member of Planned Parenthood, and I plan on donating a set amount every week in Sarah Palin’s name until the election.

    The next president will likely appoint three Supreme Court judges. The appointment of only one anti-choice justice will end Roe v. Wade. There are many reasons for voting agains the McCain-Palin ticket, but I think preserving a woman’s right to choice is the most important one.

    Donating money to Planned Parenthood and the Obama campaign is wonderful, but please consider donating also to other pro-choice causes, like the effort in California to defeat Proposition 4, which would require parental notification for minors getting abortions. This is an attack on the right of all women to choose.

    Also, please consider donating your time to work on the Obama campaign or the no on Proposition 4 campaign. Spending even a couple of hours calling voters could make a difference.

    Thank you.

    Sara Palin is wonderful. It is a shame YOUR mothers did not have an abortion and rid you of this earth. The world would be better and smarter without you, not to mention smell better.

    Frank Paynter 10.16.08 at 5:11

    Well yes, Sarah Palin is the nicest thing in high heels and pantyhose, and her first dude is quite the snow machine rider too! (I’ll bet he’d look swell in lederhosen with one of those little alpine hats!) I think it is wonderful of them to choose to have all those children and take such an active part in their rich and rewarding young lives!

    But somewhere along the line Sarah Palin got confused. She was led to believe that her understanding of god’s will for all mankind should trump other people’s understanding. She believes in teaching young, unmarried people that abstinence is the only birth control choice for them. Late at night, after the dance, behind the steamed up windows of dad’s SUV, it’s been demonstrated that condoms, diaphragms and spermicides work better than the intention to abstain. Supporting Planned Parenthood supports making information about our choices available to as many people as possible, no matter what bizarre, superstitious, right-wing, sick, fucking christian cult seeks to dominate their consciousness and deprive them of their right to choice and their right to privacy regarding that choice.

    But I think you hit the nail on the head about the world smelling better. Won’t somebody rid me of this earth? I’ve bathed and showered and nothing seems to help.

    Dear Frank,
    Great post! Am so grateful you’re out there talking sense. And, of course, the very mention of Sarah Palin and the hate mongering by her supporters begin. It seems she just brings that dark side right out of them (re: R.E.).
    Personally, I have known you through Cyber-air for years now and I think you smell divine.
    Just my 2 cents.
    From your one true “groupie,”

    R. E. 10.27.08 at 3:44

    Go up liberals. I understand morals and the pursuit of success is an unknown concept to you but some of us love this country. If ya want a hand out go see your parents. Get away from my tax dollars. I feel like 12,000 quarterly is F*%#ing enough. I’m small fish in the business world and have to pay almost 50,000 yearly to keep ya’ll afloat.

    Sarah Palin is a wonderful person. Why the hate. ? Must be hard to live with all that inside. I would say I’ll pray for you but you would not understand. I ll bet ya 1000 to a 1 that i get slammed because I said pray, ohhh nooo, Yes I accept that we have a supremebeing. Deal with it bitches.

    Frank Paynter 10.27.08 at 5:06

    What is this “supre me being” of which you speak? Sounds kinda egotistical to me.

    R. E. 10.28.08 at 10:23

    Franky, I am not your daddy. Look it up. You can do it. I know you guys don’t do much on your own but this is not an entitlement. C mon Frank do something on your own. You may feel a sense of accomplishment.

    “I would say I’ll pray for you but you would not understand. I ll bet ya 1000 to a 1 that i get slammed because I said pray, ohhh nooo, Yes I accept that we have a supremebeing. Deal with it bitches.”

    No doubt I get a kick out of the leebrul high-minded high thinkin, but, and no offense, I mostly come here for the comedy.

    R. E. 10.29.08 at 1:26

    I agree Charles…….It is nothing BUT comedy. There are the haves and the have nots. It is amazing that in a country where you can achieve great success we have people that want to just get a food card and free rent and just get by, but what is not comical is they want US to pay for it. If they get their clown in it will be even more comical/scarey how a community worker/non experienced senator deals with Iran ( over tea of course ) , N Korea, China , Russia and all the other terrorist ( friends ) he has, his words. The good news is we lived through Johnson and Carter. We can make it 4 yrs . I will just lay people off and raise fees. I’ll make mine. It’s all up to them. When they are all in the unemployment line they can talk about how great Obama is.
