Ok, I just got finished watching the RNC and Governor Sarah Palin accept her party's nomination as the Vice President.
I am angry.
First, let me say I do not consider myself a democrat nor republican. I have given both parties a fair and balanced look. Tonight, my decision has been made crystal clear.
I am endorsing and voting for the Obama/Biden ticket.
But, first let's get back to why I am angry. I am so offended by Palin's negative comments of Obama being a former community organizer. (Here is the entire transcript of her speech.)
She boasts of first being involved with the local PTA-what does she think that is?
As an employee of a faith-based inner-city community organization/ministry, I am highly offended of her insinuations that community work is not a noble or respectable work. It further solidifies for me that the GOP is not for all people, but only a few. The work millions of Americans are doing in communities, especially those communities where "the least of these..." reside, is honorable, worthy, sacrficial, and deserves respect.
Shame on you, Sarah Palin!
I admire a man who desires the office of the presidency recognizes the value of community. In my opinion, that is putting "country first."
