What Scares Me This Halloween

Well, it's Halloween, the day when we enjoy scaring the crap out of ourselves, supposedly anyway. I don't know about the rest of you but right now nothing is more terrifying to me than the chance that Sarah Palin could be elected Vice President. As this article in Slate put it:

This is what the Republican Party has done to us this year: It has placed within reach of the Oval Office a woman who is a religious fanatic and a proud, boastful ignoramus. Those who despise science and learning are not anti-elitist. They are morally and intellectually slothful people who are secretly envious of the educated and the cultured. And those who prate of spiritual warfare and demons are not just "people of faith" but theocratic bullies. On Nov. 4, anyone who cares for the Constitution has a clear duty to repudiate this wickedness and stupidity.
Brrr... Chilling.

Happy Halloween, everybody.

Even if I had whole heartedly loved McCain before (I didn't) his choice of VP would have made me NOT vote for him. The woman is psycho scary.
