Slate Indexes Palin’s Book

Sarah Palin’s new book does not contain an index. So Christopher Beam, writing at Slate made one for her! Not that you were planning to read the book anyway, but this will save you the trouble.

If for some reason you want to know more about the book, have a look at the review in The New York Times. For example:

Elsewhere in this volume she talks about creationism, saying she “didn’t believe in the theory that human beings — thinking, loving beings — originated from fish that sprouted legs and crawled out of the sea” or from “monkeys who eventually swung down from the trees.” In everything that happens to her, from meeting Todd to her selection by Mr. McCain for the Republican ticket, she sees the hand of God: “My life is in His hands. I encourage readers to do what I did many years ago, invite Him in to take over.”

Personally, I tend to see her extraordinary success, out of all proportion to her abilities, as further evidence that there is no God. Po-TAY-to, Po-TAH-to.

    Sarah is evidence that if there is a designer, that designer can’t do intelligence.

    Typical Palin-eze:

    “If God had not intended for us to eat animals, how come He made them out of meat?”

    If God had not intended for us to eat Sarah Palin, how come He made her out of meat?

    (I’m hoping Palin’s comment was intended to be humorous, but with a creationist it’s hard to tell humour from stupidity.)

    Sarah Palin is what America’s young girls need as an example to follow. The radical militant feminist man-haters are poor examples of a female role model. America’s real women need Sarah Palin. She is the traditional Biblical female role model this country needs and deserves. God Bless America and God Bless Sarah Palin.

    Despite an annoying tendency to drop the names of lots of writers and philosophers gratuitously — in the course of this book she quotes or alludes to Pascal, Plato, Aristotle, Thomas Paine, Pearl S. Buck, Mark Twain and Melville

    Ah, the classic name-drop. Makes you wonder if Palin actually read all those people, and if she did, did she understand any of them?

    When young girls like Carrie Prejean call Palin their hero, we can only imagine how wonderful they’ll turn out.

    Scientists argue over wether Darwin was right or not
    http://www.christianpost.com/article/20091116/darwin-was-wrong-scientists-argue/index.html

    It’s not really arguing “over wether (sic) Darwin was right or not” if nobody at that creationist church event was actually taking the position that Darwin was right.

    Re AL

    How about Ms. Palins’ daughter who had a child by a man to whom she was not married. Quite typical of born-again hypocrisy.

    “Sarah Palin is what America’s young girls need as an example to follow. The radical militant feminist man-haters are poor examples of a female role model. America’s real women need Sarah Palin.”

    That’s a joke, right? Because, first of all, I know plenty of women who are great examples for women to follow and aren’t at all “radical militant feminist man-haters” as you say. And, second, I see her as a perfect example of what not to follow. I am a real woman, and what I need to see are women who are good at their jobs. Women who are CLEARLY educated (I know she must be educated, but it’s not CLEAR). Women who can think for themselves instead of putting every decision good or bad on God. Women who understand and believe in SCIENCE…something based on evidence rather than something that they WANT to believe. Women who believe in equal rights for all. As AL pointed out, if my daughter turns out to be an ignorant hate-monger like Carrie Parjean, I might have to kill myself (joking…I think…). Now, if your statement was a joke, then point taken!
