Questions

So Live Free or Die sent me this article from The Nation outlining the questions Palin should answer if the press ever grows a pair (I am paraphrasing). Anyway, to give you an example of the type of stuff the author asks, here are two of her questions:

1) Forty-seven million Americans lack health insurance. John Goodman, who has advised McCain on healthcare, has proposed redefining them as covered because, he says, anyone can get care at an ER. Do you agree with him?

2) What is the function of the Federal Reserve?

The questions address a range of problems some people may have with her candidacy and they fall into a couple of categories, ranging from questions of experience to questions about her previous policy statements. Anyway, here is my proposal: why don’t some of you come up with some questions that you want her to ask. I will submit a couple too when I get to thinking about it. Anything is fair game. Of course, no one will answer these questions but they will be a useful excercise in demonstrating the span of issues on which she has no stated policy stance or on which her policy stance would require some delicate explanation.

    I like it.

    1) Do homosexuals choose to be gay? If so, how does that affect their claim to equal rights?

    2) What is your take on the relative inefficacy of abstinence only programs? How does empirical data (ever) influence your policy stances?

    nice, trader.

    “Would you still feel as sexy and empowered as you appear to feel if you had to be a gun-toting mother of five in, let’s say, Pakistan/Afghanistan/Iraq? In other words, how would your physical location and upbringing impact your legislation favoring glock fetishes, Mrs. Governor?”
