She is on record as: very strongly opposing abortion; against "explicit sex-ed programs" in schools, backing abstinence-only education; opposing same-sex marriage; supporting capital punishment; supporting teaching creationism in public schools; supporting the right to bear arms, including handguns; promoting oil and natural gas resource development in Alaska, including in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR); opposing federal listing of the polar bear as an endangered species; opposing the designation of the Cook Inlet beluga whale as an endangered species; supporting 'predator control' initiatives such as the aerial hunting of wolves; and unlike John McCain, she apparently does not believe that climate change is largely human-caused, though as a believer in creationism she is hardly keen on rational, scientific concepts like evidence and investigative testing and questioning!!

Republican US Presidential Candidate John McCain's running mate Sarah Palin, who has described herself as a pitbull wearing lipstick, is certainly a social conservative! She is a million miles away from progressive and green politics - and even worse has views consistent with being an enemy of reason!
