Someone or some group (not Planned Parenthood) got the idea of donating money to Planned Parenthood "in honor of Sarah Palin." The idea, which took the form of e-mails asking for donations in Palin's name, took off across the Internet and enough people responded to raise over $1 million for PP.
The christianists wingnuts on the right see Planned Parenthood as the devil's workshop because PP is are supportive of a woman's right to choose with regard to abortion.
Palin responded to this fund-raising effort in her name by calling it "political theater."
She did, however, make a comment that is likely to raise the fundy's hackles: "But on the issue of Planned Parenthood and abortion, at least Planned Parenthood, officials there and, I, we agree on a mission here that we'd like to see fewer and fewer abortions. And I, embracing the culture of life, have perhaps a different approach in how I would like to see that goal reached."
Damn, she has a hard time putting two sentences together!
Actually, I was surprised at the mildness of her statement, but it may fit into the theory of some pundits that she's modifying her strident, nasally nasty approach to gain more support for a presidential run in 2012.
