Wrong woman, wrong message
LA Times / Gloria Steinem
09-Sep-2008 (3 comments)

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."


Right on, Gloria!

Here is a an excellent clear-headed analysis by Gloria Steinem cutting through the Republican propaganda machine's white noise and silly gushing of slavish main stream media.



Liberal women for Palin

by Anonymous on

Here is some of Liberal feminist commenting on Sarah and they actually like her:
Another liberal feminist, Rebecca Johnson, writes why she likes Palin. Here is an excerpt from her article in Telegraph:
I had been impressed with her when I interviewed her - not for her politics (I'm one of those east coast liberals she doesn't care about) but for the other things that people across the country are responding to right now:her warmth, her work ethic, her "can-do" attitude.

Life hands them difficulties -a Down's syndrome baby, a 17-year-old daughter pregnant before her life as an adult has even begun, a much-needed job on the oil and gas commission that comes with too many strings - and she is not flummoxed or depressed or angry or self-pitying. She endures.

Again another one here:

Camille Paglia is well respected feminist and she may be changing her vote from Obama to Palin. She has written a great article and I hope you will find time to read it. Here is a short excerpt:
"It is certainly premature to predict how the Palin saga will go. I may not agree a jot with her about basic principles, but I have immensely enjoyed Palin's boffo performances at her debut and at the Republican convention, where she astonishingly dealt with multiple technical malfunctions without missing a beat. A feminism that cannot admire the bravura under high pressure of the first woman governor of a frontier state isn't worth a warm bucket of spit."

Nothing against Palin as a mother or a woman... just simply that she is not the right person for this job.  As I've said before, it's an insult to me AS a woman that they think they can buy my vote with such a pathetic ruse.
