Sarah Palin to James Dobson: McCain Will Implement Her Positions


Looks like Palin is in charge of McCain when it comes to his Evangelical base.

Sarah Palin told Focus on the Family's James Dobson that McCain will implement the RNC's socially conservative policies on stem cells, abortion, and same-sex marriage if he is elected:

"Palin told Dr. James Dobson in a radio interview, which aired today, that she believes McCain -- if elected -- will implement the Republican Party platform, which includes positions stem cells, abortion and gay marriage that are more conservative than previous positions McCain has taken. 'I do, from the bottom of my heart,' she told Dobson. 'I am such a strong believer that McCain believes in those strong planks and we do have good conversations about some of the details too, about the different planks and what they represent.' Dobson began the conversation by calling the platform the 'strongest pro-life, pro-family document to come out of a political party.' More conservative than in previous elections, the Republican platform this year advocates for a constitutional amendments to ban abortion and define marriage as between a man and a woman, as well as ban on embryonic stem cell research."

The bottom of Palin's heart must be an ugly place.

Ellen DeGeneres slammed Sarah Palin's stance on a federal marriage amendment on her show yesterday. Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. She'll bend that leftist McCain to the right if it kills him.

    She also said she was "'putting this in God's hands, that the right thing for America will be done at the end of the day on Nov. 4.'"

    And here I thought the election was in the hands of voters, silly me!

  2. So if Obama win's on Nov. 4, I guess it's God's will and she'll rethink all of her right-wing fundamentalist positions, with which God obviously disagrees if he causes Obama to win. Right?

  3. Ellen has a "pair"...Oprah needs to grow some or at least buy some.

  4. I hope Ellen isn't just preaching to the converted.

  5. I fucking love her. She's really growing into her own, isn't she? I remember when people on this site complained that she never used her show as a vehicle to speak about important GLBT issues. She's clearly mastered how to do it on that sort of light-hearted, talk show format and do so very, very effectively. Honestly, if she keeps it up, she could become the best weapon we have against homophobia in the entire country. It's not just pro-gay people who watch her show... she's really changing hearts and minds.

  6. Wow.. Palin is just a complete tool.

    "Yes, Dr. Dobson, whatever you say, Dr. Dobson. I will be your cooperative pawn in the white house until McCain dies and then I will be first Czarina of Christiania!"

    Give me a fricking break, woman doesn't even know what the VP's job is.

    And woo.. go Ellen. ;)

  7. She is incredible! What a beautiful message, so well articulated and incontrovertible!

  8. Darb, that was my thought too. If Obama wins, does she rethink her ugly thoughts?

  9. I can't sleep at night knowing that the repugs just MIGHT pull this one off.

  10. Ever since 9/11 I've always wanted to ask these right wing-nuts, "...exactly whose God are you talking about?"

    The Christian, white, gay-hating God?

    How about Orthodox trilogy of "The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost"? Still gay hating, still white.

    Perhaps it is Abraham? Oh wait, these followers teach tolerance. NEXT!

    Then you have Buddha; does Buddha bless America. Perhaps since wisdom seems to be out the window with the wing nuts, maybe not.

    What about the Muslim god? Did the Allah bless America when he told Mohammad Ata to slam the 737 into the WTC?

    Exactly whose God is blessing America? Other than for some wisdom above the fray, I don't believe I can identify with much of the above.

    I can only associate the narrow mind of the likes of Palin as nothing short of a religious terrorist. I just hope the consensus of the American population are adequately fed up with the rhetoric coming from that base and not keep these morons in power (yet again).

  11. It's crystal (meth) clear that Palin sees HERSELF as President and McCain a mere formality -- like the headwaiter of a restaurant SHE owns.

  12. This is what you call "shoring up your base". However, McCain has lost enough independent voters to make his evangelical strategy a complete loser. With the country drifting left this year, he needed a reformer/centrist on the ticket.

  13. Here's the Dobson / Palin radio interview.

  14. "The bottom of Palin's heart must be an ugly place."

    Truer words were never spoken (or typed). Now is not the time for complacency. Now is also not the time to allow personal prejudice or disappointment to get in the way of caring for and healing the country.

  15. Any gay or lesbian that votes the McCain-Palin ticket are fucking traitors and fuking losers!

  16. As expected, the Log Cabin Republicans' official response ties itself in knots trying to put a positive spin on this.

    They've also remained absolutely silent on Liddy Dole's EXTREMELY homophobic mailers and robocalls.

    I think it's pretty clear now that the LCR has lost what last little bit of credibility they had and what even less usefulness they served.

    By the measure of their own mission statement they are an abject and utter failure as an organization.

  17. Well, I voted early today for Obama, and I just hope everyone else reading this will do the same. If not, this country is going to be a really scary place November 4, I believe. And Ellen...you are the absolute best!

  18. Whoever could imagine a world in which a top TV host could talk so openly about gay/lesbian stuff? Wow.
