My head has been on the verge of exploding - I’ve had a very nasty headache for three days - ever since Palin became big news. I’m so incensed over this pick I can hardly breathe.
I'd take Advil -- Double Strength.
They are absolutely shameless and what they’re doing with Palin is one of their oldest tricks. It’s like when they whip out Ann Coulter to proclaim that women should lose the right to vote. It’s like the black Republican lawyer I once worked with who had a coffee table book of Reagan pictures on his desk.
The Apostate seems to get crazier by the day.
Palin is an instrument of a very male, very patriarchal, very anti-woman Christian God. She will advance his agenda over the bodies and souls of women.
If she isn’t a tool, she is evil. Either way, she isn’t anything feminists should find inspiring, no matter how slick she is (and she isn’t that slick).
I wouldn't call Palin evil. Well, maybe a bit naughty ...
Think of this VP pick as of a woman marrying a rich man and gaining the power of money through her marriage. It’s not real power and it’s not hers, not ultimately, and it means nothing for every woman for whom riches-through-marriage is not an option.
How cute. Sarah Palin over the years stood against corrupt Republicans, defeated other resourceful politicians, got voted in as governor of a state, earned supreme approval ratings, and was thus picked by McCain.
But, please, think of it as a woman marrying a rich guy.
