Entry for September 16, 2008

Lập trường của bà Sarah Palin có vẻ rất bảo thủ, sùng đạo quá mức, và ít thông tin. Thế nhưng mặc nhưng bê bối gần đây, cũng như lập trường rất bảo thủ Thiên chúa giáo của bà, có vẻ như Sarah Palin lại đang mang lại lợi thế cho John McCain.

Theo the New Republic (một tờ tạp chí thân đảng Dân chủ).

The Case Against Palin"

On Iraq

"Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also, for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending [American soldiers] out on a task that is from God. That's what we have to make sure that we're praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God's plan."

--June 8, 2008, Wasilla Assembly of God Church

On creationism:

"Growing up with being so privileged and blessed to be given a lot of information on, on both sides of the subject--creationism and evolution. It's been a healthy foundation for me. But don't be afraid of information and let kids debate both sides."

--October 25, 2006, gubernatorial debate

On global warming:

"A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location. I'm not one, though, who would attribute it to being man-made."
--August 29, 2008, Newsmax

On energy:

"I think God's will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built, so pray for that."
--June 8, 2008, Wasilla Assembly of God Church

On library books she doesn't like:

"What would your response be if I asked you to remove some books from the collection?"
--October 1996 conversation with librarian Mary Ellen Emmons, Anchorage Daily News

On being governor:

"I will unambiguously, steadfastly, and doggedly guard the interests of this great state, as a mother naturally guards her own. Like a Southeast Eagle and her eaglets, or, more appropriately here in the Carlson, like a Nanook defending her cub."
--December 4, 2006, Inaugural address

On the prospect of becoming a candidate for vice president:

"It kind of cracks me up. It is so far out of the realm of possibility and reality."
--August 14, 2008, Financial Post


  1. Vào lại blog của anh Linh, thấy dạo này ít có comment hơn trước. Không biết là vì anh viết nhiều hơn, ít người đọc hơn, mọi người ít đọc hơn, đọc mà ít comment hơn, hay là vì tôi chưa xem kỹ nhỉ.

    Như entry này về Sarah Palin chẳng hạn?

  2. Chắc vì entry dạo này chủ yếu như các note, không bàn nhiều về cái gì, ví dụ bài này chỉ copy từ báo Mỹ.
    Tề Phi giờ đang dạy học ở Singapore phải không?
