Palin Supports What?? (Wednesday, September 17, 2008)

So this morning, I heard a spot on the radio, discussing all the benefits of stem cell research, and then (to my shock) saying how McCain and Palin support this research and will increase funding for it.

On the one hand, I believe that McCain supports stem cell research... he's got lots of scary ideas, but this isn't one of them. Unfortunately, I'm not sure that he checked with his running mate on the issue, as Sarah Palin has repeatedly stated that she opposes stem cell research.

The linked article also describes, among other things, her position on abortion, which is quite clear — she opposes it categorically, but her attempt at seeming reasonable is disturbing, because it doesn't make any sense from a constitutional perspective. Of course, one doesn't really expect a hockey mom to have a complete grasp of complex constitutional law issues. One would expect 72 year-old McCain to have made a better choice for a running mate, though. There's being a maverick, and then there's just taking stupid risks.
