SARAH PALIN: A GIANT STEP FOR WOMANKIND

palin.jpg
Sarah Palin’s name was announced as John McCain’s running mate, we sense a deliriously heightened air of political excitement and the feeling that democrats are scrambling to respond to this news carefully. It is HUGELY gratifying to finally have a female candidate, but we do wish she were more moderate – especially socially. Whether she’s the perfect candidate or not, she IS a woman and she represents a long overdue step toward “equality” that American women have been denied for so long. Don’t underestimate this political maneuver- it is a giant step for womankind.

    It’s not a “giant step for womankind,” it’s a political stunt. She’s not the first woman US veep candidate, either, so how is it a giant step?

    Not buying Obama’s flowery speech. McCain will crush Obama come election time. McCain may not be the media rock star darling – but his supporters are definitely out there – they just don’t feel the need to force feed him to everyone.

    What about the rumors that she faked being pregnant to cover up the pregnancy of her 16 year old daughter, who was out of school for months with “mono”?
    And even if that is just a rumor, I am totally unimpressed with her and think it’s not anything near a big step for women.
    She brags about being a hockey mom. We don’t need a hockey mom for President. We someone who has the chops to lead the country…because let’s face it, McCain isn’t a youngster.

    No, Janet.
    This is not a woman’s woman, she’s just another chick that will say and do anything for a man’s approval even at the expense of other women.
    Who needs her representing womenhood in the USA?
    Most women understand why abortion should be legal even if they personally object to abortion.
    The good news is this chick will not be in office.

    will be interesting to watch Rep convention. She was not chosen lightly and is said to be quite impressive once you learn everything about her. Obama is no better qualified. He is just a glorified speaker with no real credentials to his belt, so the race is not over yet.

    Geraldine Ferraro took the giant step 20+ years ago, so the only thing new about this ‘candidate’ is how very under qualified she is.
    After the last 8 years with a dolt and a demon in the White House, we REALLY need someone who is qualified and forward thinking – thats certainly not McSame OR the hockey mom.
    Think about it, HOW SCARY would it be if McCain’s cancer came back again and this beauty queen had to assume presidential responsibilities?? A hockey mom as the leader of the free world????
    While some people his age are still full of life, McCain is a VERY OLD 72; he already seems tired and frail.
    Janet, I am actually very disappointed with your post.

    *It’s interesting to see all the liberal scumbags on here and in the democratic party start to rip a woman apart because she doesn’t believe what they believe. See, in the liberal world, woman’s rights only applies to women that believe exactly what they believe. If they don’t, well, they just aren’t women. I seem to remember there was once a party that believed the same thing. It was the NAZI party. Sure, the libs don’t round up people and kill them, but if they could, they would.
    Palin is the true Feminist. But she didn’t get to where she is by whining like many feminist. She actually went out and did it herself.
    The best thing for the Democrats to do is to ridicule and patronize her for being a Republican Woman who actually thinks for herself.
    The current reaction by the dems is clear evidence that they are EXTREMELY scared of her. Why? Because she clearly identifies with many normal, rational women. She is them. They are her. The only women who don’t are the radical partisan leftist dems who understand the threat she poses. Real women like Sarah Palin.

    This is just how committed the democrats are committed to women and women’s rights.
    They elect a man over a woman and the man (obama) went out of his way to destroy that woman(hitlery).
    Then, the same pair of men who claim they are the party of women go out and bash another woman who was chosen to be the VP of the Republican Party.
    How rich is that?
    Do you think a lot of undecided voters will realize just how disingenuous the Democrats are?
    WE’ll find out in November.

    I think she is as good as any pick for VP would be. Someone said that being a governor gives more credibility and knowledge than being a senator. My main thing is : She has a small baby with Down’s Syndrome plus 4 other kids. How is she going to handle all this, when the DS kid would be a full time job. She is not superwoman,….or is she?

    Janet, are you kidding? You think the nomination of a woman who believes in creationism, is for the NRA, and who is pro-life under all circumstances is a victory for women? Everything about her is scary to me – and being a “soccer mom” does not qualify her to be 1st in line as the President of the US. I don’t believe for one minute that John McCain really wants her as his running mate – it’s only because he’s in deep politcal trouble that he would utilize this gimmick in choosing a partner to bring in the many in his party who don’t like his politics. But to hear you promoting her as good for women – do you think we just want any woman, regardless of their beliefs?! Janet, get a clue!!

    Janet, Clearly you have not thought through your Palin post. Do you sincerely believe your own words? McCain thinks women will vote for Palin just because she is a woman, and he is desperately trying to get the Hillary votes. McCain has miscalculated educated and thoughtful women and the Hillary voters. Women will not vote gender, but vote for the candidate that best represents their views on issues that affect women, their families, and their country.

    I don’t think women will vote for McCain on the basis that he chose a woman.
    More likely they will vote for that ticket because she brings executive experience, she’s tough and she’s bright.
    She explained her history in the introduction speech so easily and freely. She disclosed more about herself in 15 minutes than Barry Obama has in 2 years. He’s terrified that we’ll find out what his socialist agenda really is and he’ll be laughed out of the election.
    What a refreshing change to hear someone who loves her country instead of someone who hates his.

    I think he totally picked Palin to try to show the women of the world that he is sensitive to women’s issues. I do think that baby is not hers, but her teenage daughter’s kid.
    If anyone thinks Obama is not a Muslim, think again. He will deny it to the end, but he is a Muslim. Have you ever heard of any Christian with the middle name of “Hussein”. Yes he is a Muslim, and anyone who votes for him apparently could care less about 9-11…..(an unspeakable act carried out by Islam/Muslims). Go to any Muslim country and say you are a Christian and see how long before you lose your head. Yet Muslims come here and we bow and scrape to them.
    Folks, top secret things are going on behind the scenes that would astound us if the truth came out. Such as, a few months ago, Barack Hussein Obama suddenly received $25,000,000 and refused to tell where it came from. It came from Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries/ duh. They are financing him with hopes that he wins so he can spread Muslim religion of hate in the USA and take us over. You think this is far-fetched, just wait and see if Hussein wins.

    No Janet, having a female candidate who is not qualified for the position is not a good step for women or the country – it’s a terrible thing.
    She’s also no boon to motherhood. After all what woman who actually cares for the well being of her unborn child would choose to take an 8 hour flight to return home to have her child when she had already been leaking amniotic fluid for hours? Even more distressing is her insistence at passing a hospital well equipped to handle a pre-term baby, especially one already known to have down’s syndrome, in order to deliver at a lesser equipped facility?

    I am shocked that this profanely named by the media PUMA (party unity my ass)women would think that supporting Hillary means that you must now take any woman offered. That’s the cult of the woman not the choice of a wonderfully qualified candidate who fights for abortion rights and decent Supreme Court Justicekolls and health care. Sarah Palin cares for none of those things. Recently she asked someone what the Vice President of the country did! Colleagues in Alaska say that it was a steep learning curve for her to be governor and that they can’t imagine anything further. McCain met Palin once and was until last week going to choose Leiberman as his running mate. Cries of evangelicals drove him to Palin, who is still reeling from her home state scandal. Don’t be foooled by this gimmick. We’re not casting a sit com, here. And having her run falls into the Dan Quayle category, not an historic move, Janet.

    Choosing her is an insult to ALL women, except those who are ideologically aligned with her – and they can have her. She stands for nothing progressive; she has no platform that will in any way distinguish her; she is nothing more than a token; in fact, if one were to take a somewhat cynical perspective (who me?) she no more represents women than any male candidate would. And why would any political party WANT a female candidate to represent women? I predict she will fail miserably in attaining any goals the party has for her.

Wake up people, They’ve sold you a bill of goods that if you are anti war you’re un-American.

    Palin is an insult to both Women and Feminism… Her Phyllis Schaffley / Anita Bryant Mentality is utterly Barbaric.. She has no real political experience except for being a Mayor and now Governor for a year and a half……
    She is into Pro-Life and has a child with Down’s Syndrome.. She should be the good Christian Wife she claims to be and stay at home and tend to her Disabled Child… Not getting into the political arena..
    What good Christian Woman can advocate Pro-Life and then KILL Animals for fun? She obviously need to get her Priorities in order..
    One cannot compare her to Women like Barbara Boxer or Hillary Clinton because she is so clueless as a Human Being not to mention as a WOMAN!!!
    McCain should have asked for Paris Hilton to be on the ticket.. Paris is not the sharpest knife in the drawer but Palin makes her look like a a Harvard Graduate..

    Wait a minute–you think spreading that pathetic and disproved rumor is going to convert people to McCain, a 72 year-old-cancer survivor who admits he doesn’t know much about the economy, thinks “rich” people are those with $5 million and doesn’t care if we stay in Iraq—for 100 years–who picks someone he has met once for VP even though she isn’t informed or ready to take over as commander in chief? Come on, if that’s all you can say to recommend McCain, I feel sorry for you.
    The governor of Louisiana converted to Catholicism but is Indian by birth. Does that make him a Hindu forever?
    That’s not even Obama’s case. Don’t forget the church going white Kansas grandparents of Obama or the attendance with Hillary at prayer breakfasts or babtism and prayer.
    People who cite 9-11 as a reason for everything (like Rudy’s to make him president although his failure to equip the firemen resulted in many deaths) are the worst kind of self-servers. It does an injustice to people who died to use it to speak out against a presidential candidate.

    “If anyone thinks Obama is not a Muslim, think again. He will deny it to the end, but he is a Muslim. Have you ever heard of any Christian with the middle name of “Hussein”. Yes he is a Muslim, and anyone who votes for him apparently could care less about 9-11…”
    Wait a minute–you think spreading that pathetic and disproved rumor is going to convert people to McCain, a 72 year-old-cancer survivor who admits he doesn’t know much about the economy, thinks “rich” people are those with $5 million and doesn’t care if we stay in Iraq—for 100 years–who picks someone he has met once for VP even though she isn’t informed or ready to take over as commander in chief? Come on, if that’s all you can say to recommend McCain, I feel sorry for you.
    The governor of Louisiana converted to Catholicism but is Indian by birth. Does that make him a Hindu forever?
    That’s not even Obama’s case. Don’t forget the church going white Kansas grandparents of Obama or the attendance with Hillary at prayer breakfasts or babtism and prayer.
    People who cite 9-11 as a reason for everything (like Rudy’s to make him president although his failure to equip the firemen resulted in many deaths) are the worst kind of self-servers. It does an injustice to people who died to use it to speak out against a presidential candidate.
    Janet, you should stick to Hollywood gossip. I am not impressed with your political analysis or lack thereof.

    No, being a woman does not a caregiver make. Ask many husbands and sons and daughters about that.
    And what does she care about> Palin cares about teaching creationism in schools, preventing a woman’s right to choose, ignoring the possibility of equal pay for equal work–just go down the list that McCain offers. A couple of months ago she didn’t even know what a VP does (according to an interview with her) and now she thinks she can be one? McCain was set to pick Leiberman until last week, when social conervatives said they wanted her to shore up the base. Are women that stupid? I know some ex beautfy queens who are much more qualified than she is to run (take Diane Sawyer) and don’t think that they know foreign affairs because Alaska is close to Russia, as Cindy McCain (our expert) said.
    This is not a sit com people. If you vote for Sarah Palin because she’s a woman–well, take your medicine later. I’m ashamed that women could be manipulated that way.

    Funny how some of the moron demoncrats will quickly label a VP unqualified because she lacks experience yet support a Democratic nominee for President who has even less experience and is running on an empty tag line of HOPE.
    That’s why Palin is such a great strategic pick. She clearly focuses the issue of inexperience back onto Obama. All she is is a reflector of what’s wrong with Obama. In the end, people will see that McCain is the choice for someone that has experience because they will see Obama and his campaign as hypocrites to even dare label a VP as inexperienced.
    And why did Obama pick Biden as his VP? Because Obama has no EXPERIENCE AT ALL and Biden gives Obama gravitas.
    I know I will be voting for McCain now because he has a VP pick that is better prepared to be president than BaCrack Hussein oSHAMa

    To the dipschits who think a VP can do anything about abortion…a VP or a PResident can’t. So her views on abortion mean nothing.
    Say that they put up judges who overturn Roe V Wade. Does abortion become illegal? NO, it doesn’t.
    What happens is that the issue goes back to the state legislatures for them to decided. That’s right. Each 50 states, not 58 states according to barack, would decide if Abortion should be legal in their state. Before Roe V Wade, ~70% of the states allowed abortion. Even in California is was legal. And you know who made it legal? None other than Ronald Reagan. I know, many of you brain dead idiots are shocked to learn this. YEs, Reagan was against abortion but he understood it was a state’s right and he knew the people of califronia wanted it. He did not think it was a Federal issue and didn’t want the federal government involved in it. He was and still is right about it. It’s a state’s issue and it should be resolved at the state level. Not by 8 unelected judges who are not suppose to create legislation.
    It saddens me that so many people today are ignorant about history and how our government works.

    Yesterday was John McCain’s 72nd birthday. If elected, he’d be the oldest president ever inaugurated. And after months of slamming Barack Obama for “inexperience,” here’s who John McCain has chosen to be one heartbeat away from the presidency: a right-wing religious conservative with no foreign policy experience, who until recently was mayor of a town of 9,000 people.
    Huh?
    Who is Sarah Palin? Here’s some basic background:
    She was elected Alaska’s governor a little over a year and a half ago. Her previous office was mayor of Wasilla, a small town outside Anchorage.1
    Palin is strongly anti-choice, opposing abortion even in the case of rape or incest.2
    She supported right-wing extremist Pat Buchanan for president in 2000. 3
    Palin thinks creationism should be taught in public schools.4
    She’s doesn’t think humans are the cause of climate change.5
    She’s solidly in line with John McCain’s “Big Oil first” energy policy. She’s pushed hard for more oil drilling and says renewables won’t be ready for years. She also sued the Bush administration for listing polar bears as an endangered species

There isn’t very many things more corrupt than a chicago politician. Socialism has been proven not to work over and over again but people still insist on it. Makes no sense. They just change the words around. Like calling themselves progressives. Its the same nazi bs no matter how you look at it. I love rugged individualism, limited government, decreased taxes, rights for the individual NOT the group. Mrs Palin has shown she is a proponent to all of these things.

    sounds like someone needs to go back to high school and take a government class (I’m guessing you think the country is and should be run on so-called “Christian” values in whichever bible translation you choose to read too). Who do you think nominates the Supreme Court justices? These are life long positions so any damage done (i.e., the religious mandate they plan to enact) will outlast the administration and set the country back generations. What a lovely a back-water this country will become under a McCain-Palin administration – first state sponsored fundamentalist Christian religion taught in public schools starting with creationism and then what? shall we bring back the flat earth society too?

    She’s a liar who is pretending her grandson is her own baby. She wants to outlaw not only abortion but birth control. I guess that’s why her daughter carried the baby to term while she was out of school for 8 months with “mononeucliosis.” Palin is an unqualified right-wing “Christian” fascist. Janet if you think this is progress, I suggest you stop reading USWeekly and start reading some newspapers.

    Excellent point and the ridiculous and outrageous comments here prove your point. Our schools have been on the downslide since 1966. Our educational system and media have been taken over by the far left which has been propagandizing young people since then. I am 62 years old and have watched in horror as the communists have reached their goals. If anyone is interested please research “Communist Goals 1963″ and you will see what so many of us have watched happen to our wonderful country the last 40 years. This is based on a book by a former FBI specialist in communism under J. Edgar Hoover. It was originally published in 1958 as a text to explain communism to high school students. Most high school students today do not have the reading or comprehension skills to understand the book.

It requires that we not establish a state religion such as the Church of England or the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. It was the left wing Supreme Court that CHANGED THE CONSTITUTION FROM THE BENCH when ONE ATHEIST, Madalyn Murray, and her communist lawyer sued the city of Baltimore. This is why the presidential election is so important. The next president will likely appoint several justices to the Supreme Court. We must get the court back to the kind of strict constructionists that they should be so that uneducated, ranting left wing loons like yourself can be stopped from taking rights away from everyone who does not agree with your lunacy.

The whole gist of your pathetic post is that liberals believe what they believe and anyone who doesn’t agree, well, they just don’t count. Look in the mirror before you post, why don’tcha?
    And then there’s this priceless gem…
    “…It’s interesting to see all the liberal scumbags on here and in the democratic party start to rip a woman apart because she doesn’t believe what they believe. See, in the liberal world, woman’s rights only applies to women that believe exactly what they believe. If they don’t, well, they just aren’t women.
    There are no liberal woman who believe womnen’s rights only belong to a few select women. They believe that ALL women should have equal rights. You might want to learn something about the subject before you go shooting off your stupid mouth. Makes you look less like a jackass.

    PAGING JERRY SPRINGEER
    PAGING JERRY SPRINGER!
    “Okay. John McCain chose Sarah Palin without vetting her. That was his rash, impulsive decision. But, it’s time to untangle the Sarah Palin story — and it’s becoming clear that the only person who can really do it is Jerry Springer.
    Let’s review: Sarah is one of those fundamentalist types who like her new partner, John McCain, supports abstinence education. Yet, Sarah’s 17 year old daughter is five months pregnant. That story came out to put an end to rumors that Sarah herself is actually the grandmother of her fifth child:
    The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said on Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.
    Either way, like her daughter, Sarah may have gone down that pre-marital sex path herself.
    Then, we have Sarah’s sister and her ex-husband. That divorce seems like one for the ages. It’s resulted in an investigation of the Governor for possible abuse of power. The details of the divorce have been showing up in articles — it’s very ugly. And, there are a lot of offspring in that clan:
    “Wooten was counseled by my husband to join Molly in acting civilly and with maturity during their divorce — for the sake of the nine kids they and Wooten’s girlfriend have between them all — and who are adversely affected by their circumstances. Wooten evidently took umbrage with the advice and that day told Molly she’d better ‘put a leash on your sister’ or he’d ‘bring Sarah Palin down.’”
    There’s even an in-law squabble. Sarah’s mother-in-law (who “still hasn’t decided which way she’ll vote”) dissed her to the NY Daily News:
    “I’m not sure what she brings to the ticket other than she’s a woman and a conservative. Well, she’s a better speaker than McCain,” Faye Palin said with a laugh.
    And, then, there’s Todd, the “First Dude.” Note how many times his name pops up in the scandal stories. Seriously, Todd is at the center of all of this.
    Like it or not, you have to admit, this is tailor made for Jerry Springer. Let Jerry do the digging the McCain campaign didn’t do.”

    Who cares what they say, they are NOT going to convince the American people to vote for McSame when they know they he will continue the same policies as bush.
    McSame = more wars, more taxes (for the Middle class and none for the rich), more budget deficits, more increases in gas prices, more division, etc.
    And let’s not forget McSame will bring the draft back for his 100 years in Iraq.
    Again Kelley, and you true bloggers, don’t worry about the pro-Palin comments. Most of them of the “anonymous” ones are really the same people being paid $6.25/hour.

    Marianne,
    The difference between you and Bristol Palin is that you would abort (kill) the baby. Conservatives believe in the value and sanctity of human life. I’m sure her baby will be well loved and cared for. Maybe that is what has been missing in your life. Perhaps you never had the unconditional love of your parents. That would explain your hateful attitude. It is very difficult to raise a good child nowadays when there are so many slutty girls like you out there setting a bad example. Unfortunately your kind outnumber the good girls. What a shame.

    Your president Bush would rather kill our young men and women in a fake war and that’s ok?! I love you pro life conservatives that are ok with Bush sending our young men and women to war after he lied about weapons of mass destruction and he’s not impeached for lying?! But thank God he didn’t get a blow job! Now that’s a crime. Sex bad, murder good?!
    You don’t have a problem that over 600,000 innocent Iraqi civilians have been killed since this war started. I believe that’s more Iraqis killed than when Sadam was in power…and he was called satan? Bush also used that as a reason to start this war, that Sadam was a murderer. But hey, after all ALL muslims are terrorist right? And since Obama has a middle eastern name…well there it is. Evil doer. Oh, and now this administration and McCain wants to go to war with Iran. Do we want to kill off an entire generation?! And where is the money going to come from to pay for this war?! Oh you dumb bigot republican sheeples. Fox news has really done it’s job.

    Yeah, as she sends her son to Iraq, a WAR OF CHOICE to do what? Kill people. How many innocent men, women and children have died in Iraq, not to mention our own sons and daughters in a country that didn’t attack us and posed no threat and had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11. So much for your sanctity of human life.

    What kind of a family are the Palin’s anyway?
    What kind of a wacko woman boards a plane while she’s in labor?
    What kind of a mother leaves a newborn Down Syndrome baby to campaign all over the country?
    What kind of a mother decides to run for VP of the US if she’s just given birth to a baby who needs her and if she’s just found out her unwed teenage daughter is going to have a baby?
    There is a lot about this woman that needs to be PROBED. In a country where the right wing makes “family values” their stock in trade, their cause, their reason to rule, the state of THEIR families need to be exposed.

    11:25 you are right. America is fast becomming Mc Religions and cultures – which is why McCain represents REAL America. I am sick of giving away our country and our values. I do not approve of every culture & religion showing up here and not adapting to our ways. Whining that they don’t want Christmas celebrated or taking prayer out of schools and how it imposes on their so called rights.. The whole country is going to hell because even now we are foolish enough to allow a traditional Muslim to run for Presidency. It is not racism. It is about preserving OUR country. BHO is getting funding overseas – gee I wonder by whom? I don’t want foreigners taking over America – that is a change I don’t believe in. When in Rome – or get the hell out.

    What does 9/11 have to do with anything? Iraq didn’t attack us, but we went to war with them anyway. As to who did attack us and killed three thousand on our soil, Osmama Bin Laden, Republican President G.W. Bush said on 3/13/02…
    “I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.” “I am truly not that concerned about him.”
    Look it up, that’s a fact. You can even see him say on YouTube. Explain that Republicans, why doesn’t the all mighty Bush care about who attacked us? We’re waiting…..

    “I don’t want foreigners taking over America – ”
    Naive comment of the week, following Janet’s statement about this “breakthrough” by Palin.
    Thanks to all the borrowing the past eight years in order to finance our wars, we owe millions (make that trillions) and who do we owe it to? The Chinese. They bankroll us, pure and simple, and if they ever want us to pay up–well, let’s hope we never reach that day because we don’t have it. We don’t challenge their misuse of human rights because they’re our bank. Why do you think we were at the Olympics when some protested?
    Have you ever looked at our products lately to see that foreigners have taken them over? Where are our goods manufactured? Want to buy an American car? Most people don’t if they can find one. With NFTA, most of our products are made somewhere else. Steadily, steadily, we are a debtor rather than a lender nation and it’s to foreigners. No wonder they want to come over here and spend their money: the dollar is worth so little.
    And don’t the Saudis get special treatment? Bush certainly has provided it.
    We have sold ourselves down to the river to foreigners under the Republicans and now you don’t want a Democrat in the White House? Get real, get informed. When someone wants to win, the other guy is labeled a “foreigner” but believe me, these red blooded cowboys have let us be taken over. We need someone to bring our country back and it’s not four more years of the same party.

    the gop convention was full of white ppl and a few token blacks they are probably the ones in your HR dept at work kept around to fire other minorities so it doesn’t look racially motivated. lol and just because you don’t vote for barack doesn’t make you racist. but we all know this election has its roots in american racism that is about to be exposed.
    God help us. sarah palin is not equipped to lick baracks boots she has zero foreign policy experience she is not pro american she was trying to separate alaska from america and she certainly has typical white trash values I don’t mind having a white as president but I certainly don’t want a non polished white trash in high political office.

    McCain proved HE is the change candidate by nominating Palin as his VP choice. I actually met Gov. Palin this last May at the gas pipeline meetings held in Anchorage, Alaska. Palin gave the kickoff speech and was well versed in the meeting agenda. Also, she was very poised, gracious and was the consummate professional in answering the numerous State of Alaka politicians questions. I think she’ll “hit it out of the park” at tonight’s convention speech and she’ll bring this presidential race to a whole new level. Go McCain / Palin and “Yea USA!”

    Real women can do ANY the following and still be REAL women:
    1) Have children
    2) Have careers
    3) Shoot guns
    4) Camp, hunt and fish
    5) Dress in pants, skirts, dresses and longjohns
    6) Support pro-life AND/OR pro-choice
    7) Cut the lawn, take out the garbage
    8) Fix a car, fix a computer
    9) Negotiate, multi-task, communicate
    10) and disagree with OTHER women.
    This may come as a surprise to MANY of you, but other countries have been voting in both women and people of different skin colours into high ranking government positions for quite a while now. Perhaps it is finally time the US caught up.

    Palin: wrong woman, wrong message
    Sarah Palin shares nothing but a chromosome with Hillary Clinton. She is Phyllis Schlafly, only younger.
    By Gloria Steinem
    September 4, 2008
    Here’s the good news: Women have become so politically powerful that even the anti-feminist right wing — the folks with a headlock on the Republican Party — are trying to appease the gender gap with a first-ever female vice president. We owe this to women — and to many men too — who have picketed, gone on hunger strikes or confronted violence at the polls so women can vote. We owe it to Shirley Chisholm, who first took the “white-male-only” sign off the White House, and to Hillary Rodham Clinton, who hung in there through ridicule and misogyny to win 18 million votes.
    But here is even better news: It won’t work. This isn’t the first time a boss has picked an unqualified woman just because she agrees with him and opposes everything most other women want and need. Feminism has never been about getting a job for one woman. It’s about making life more fair for women everywhere. It’s not about a piece of the existing pie; there are too many of us for that. It’s about baking a new pie.
    Selecting Sarah Palin, who was touted all summer by Rush Limbaugh, is no way to attract most women, including die-hard Clinton supporters. Palin shares nothing but a chromosome with Clinton. Her down-home, divisive and deceptive speech did nothing to cosmeticize a Republican convention that has more than twice as many male delegates as female, a presidential candidate who is owned and operated by the right wing and a platform that opposes pretty much everything Clinton’s candidacy stood for — and that Barack Obama’s still does. To vote in protest for McCain/Palin would be like saying, “Somebody stole my shoes, so I’ll amputate my legs.”
    This is not to beat up on Palin. I defend her right to be wrong, even on issues that matter most to me. I regret that people say she can’t do the job because she has children in need of care, especially if they wouldn’t say the same about a father. I get no pleasure from imagining her in the spotlight on national and foreign policy issues about which she has zero background, with one month to learn to compete with Sen. Joe Biden’s 37 years’ experience.
    Palin has been honest about what she doesn’t know. When asked last month about the vice presidency, she said, “I still can’t answer that question until someone answers for me: What is it exactly that the VP does every day?” When asked about Iraq, she said, “I haven’t really focused much on the war in Iraq.”
    She was elected governor largely because the incumbent was unpopular, and she’s won over Alaskans mostly by using unprecedented oil wealth to give a $1,200 rebate to every resident. Now she is being praised by McCain’s campaign as a tax cutter, despite the fact that Alaska has no state income or sales tax. Perhaps McCain has opposed affirmative action for so long that he doesn’t know it’s about inviting more people to meet standards, not lowering them. Or perhaps McCain is following the Bush administration habit, as in the Justice Department, of putting a job candidate’s views on “God, guns and gays” ahead of competence. The difference is that McCain is filling a job one 72-year-old heartbeat away from the presidency.
    So let’s be clear: The culprit is John McCain. He may have chosen Palin out of change-envy, or a belief that women can’t tell the difference between form and content, but the main motive was to please right-wing ideologues; the same ones who nixed anyone who is now or ever has been a supporter of reproductive freedom. If that were not the case, McCain could have chosen a woman who knows what a vice president does and who has thought about Iraq; someone like Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison or Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine. McCain could have taken a baby step away from right-wing patriarchs who determine his actions, right down to opposing the Violence Against Women Act.
    Palin’s value to those patriarchs is clear: She opposes just about every issue that women support by a majority or plurality. She believes that creationism should be taught in public schools but disbelieves global warming; she opposes gun control but supports government control of women’s wombs; she opposes stem cell research but approves “abstinence-only” programs, which increase unwanted births, sexually transmitted diseases and abortions; she tried to use taxpayers’ millions for a state program to shoot wolves from the air but didn’t spend enough money to fix a state school system with the lowest high-school graduation rate in the nation; she runs with a candidate who opposes the Fair Pay Act but supports $500 million in subsidies for a natural gas pipeline across Alaska; she supports drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve, though even McCain has opted for the lesser evil of offshore drilling. She is Phyllis Schlafly, only younger.
    I don’t doubt her sincerity. As a lifetime member of the National Rifle Assn., she doesn’t just support killing animals from helicopters, she does it herself. She doesn’t just talk about increasing the use of fossil fuels but puts a coal-burning power plant in her own small town. She doesn’t just echo McCain’s pledge to criminalize abortion by overturning Roe vs. Wade, she says that if one of her daughters were impregnated by rape or incest, she should bear the child. She not only opposes reproductive freedom as a human right but implies that it dictates abortion, without saying that it also protects the right to have a child.
    So far, the major new McCain supporter that Palin has attracted is James Dobson of Focus on the Family. Of course, for Dobson, “women are merely waiting for their husbands to assume leadership,” so he may be voting for Palin’s husband.
    Being a hope-a-holic, however, I can see two long-term bipartisan gains from this contest.
    Republicans may learn they can’t appeal to right-wing patriarchs and most women at the same time. A loss in November could cause the centrist majority of Republicans to take back their party, which was the first to support the Equal Rights Amendment and should be the last to want to invite government into the wombs of women.
    And American women, who suffer more because of having two full-time jobs than from any other single injustice, finally have support on a national stage from male leaders who know that women can’t be equal outside the home until men are equal in it. Barack Obama and Joe Biden are campaigning on their belief that men should be, can be and want to be at home for their children.
    This could be huge.

    Has it occurred to you in the midst of Hollywood gossip (Sharon Osbourne to play Sarah Palin’s mother?)that this woman could be president this term? Ooh, let’s forget about the fact that she’s a woman when she doesn’t know Fannie Mae from Freddie Mac. Does being a woman mean she’s immune from questioning about what she does know and has done? Oooh, the big bad press is going to hurt Sarah. She can’t stand the scrutiny given to other candidates (the right of the people to know) because she’s a woman?
    Funny, that to me is sexism. Listen (not look and be distracted) to a tape of her speaking on national and foreign affairs in front of her church audience without a script. She is aggressively stupid because she doesn’t know that she doesn’t know things or what she doesn’t know. Therefore she thinks she knows everything. She makes W look like a Rhodes scholar. (oh, was that a man hating comment?)
    We’re electing McCain, a 73-77 president who has beaten the odds already by surviving his POW status and three bouts of melanoma. Are you comfortable for her to take the helm?
    I love this country and I want a leader, not the flavor of the week in the glasses of the week.
    When national politics gets beyond treating the election as if we were voting for student council president or prom queen, maybe we’ll solve our terrible problems.
    No Sarah Palin for President. Remember you heard the warning here first.

    For God’s sake, take down her picture. When I googled to get on your site, that’s the first thing I saw. She’s a divisive influence in this country. While making well over 100,000 she has the nerve to label “Joe Six-Pack” and say she speaks for him. Let Joe Six Pack self-identify. Can you imagine the flack if Obama said he was the “Joe Sixpack” candidate–the charges of elitism?
    We have McCain who promised us he’d pick an experienced, wise and informed person to be his VP, esp. because he’s a POW with a shorter life span predicted and suffers from melanoma, let alone that he’s 72 and would be 77 when his term finishes.
    His pick of Palin, with her phony “you betcha” and other folksy language she never used in any Alaskan debates shows poor judgment.

    I love this country too and Obama is the worst disaster this country has EVER seen. Voting for him is the BIGGEST mistake anyone could make. Hilary Clinton backing Obama–the wife of a lying, woman chasing ex-pres–GIVE ME A BREAK!!
    For those of you who think abstinence programs will increase sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted births and abortions–how stupid can you be?
    Since when does knowing the difference between Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have anything to do with being a woman? Idiots.
    Now wonder this country has issues. Stupid people like those who vote for Obama.
