    I have a sister who is really smart and capable.  She is successful in business despite (or perhaps because of) her lack of a fancy degree.  She is also generous to a fault and deeply compassionate.  She is quite a bit younger than I and, although we were raised in the same house, she is conservative.

    A couple of nights ago she mentioned that she kind of liked Palin.  I almost jumped through the phone!  This intelligent, successful, compassionate woman was telling me she that she admired that vapid, ruthless opportunist, and I just couldn't let it go.  When I probed deeper, I found that she was woefully uninformed.  She had no idea about the Gibson or Couric interviews or any of the racist or secessionist things.  When I told her some of the stuff she was genuinely surprised.  She doesn't mean to be uninformed; she's just really busy.  I sent her a bunch of links to videos of Palin being her embarrassing self.  It may not change her mind but at least she will know what a crazy b***h she is voting for.
