Yes the Vagina owner's society has certianly got their panties in a bunch. Here is the statment from NOW on Senator Palin, never mind all the sexism thrown her way.Not Every Woman Supports Women's RightsAugust 29, 2008Statement of NOW PAC Chair Kim Gandy on the Selection of Sarah Palin as John McCain's Vice Presidential PickSen. John McCain's choice of Alaska governor Sarah Palin as his running mate is a cynical effort to appeal to disappointed Hillary Clinton voters and get them to vote, ultimately, against their own self-interest. Gov. Palin may be the second woman vice-presidential candidate on a major party ticket, but she is not the right woman. Sadly, she is a woman who opposes women's rights, just like John McCain.The fact that Palin is a mother of five who has a 4-month-old baby, a woman who is juggling work and family responsibilities, will speak to many women. But will Palin speak FOR women? Based on her record and her stated positions, the answer is clearly No.In a gubernatorial debate, Palin stated emphatically that her opposition to abortion was so great, so total, that even if her teenage daughter was impregnated by a rapist, she would "choose life" -- meaning apparently that she would not permit her daughter to have an abortion.Palin also had to withdraw her appointment of a top public safety commissioner who had been reprimanded for sexual harassment, although Palin had been warned about his background through letters by the sexual harassment complainant.What McCain does not understand is that women supported Hillary Clinton not just because she was a woman, but because she was a champion on their issues. They will surely not find Sarah Palin to be an advocate for women.Sen. Joe Biden is the VP candidate who appeals to women, with his authorship and championing of landmark domestic violence legislation, support for pay equity, and advocacy for women around the world.Finally, as the chair of NOW's Political Action Committee, I am frequently asked whether NOW supports women candidates just because they are women. This gives me an opportunity to once again answer that question with an emphatic 'No.' We recognize the importance of having women's rights supporters at every level but, like Sarah Palin, not every woman supports women's rights.###For Immediate ReleaseContact: Mai Shiozaki, 202-628-8669, ext. 116; cell 202-641-1906
In listening to Obama's acceptance speech at "Mile High Acropolis", and the coorination of the "Saviour and Messiah" of the modern age, I witness a level of political gullibility I have never seen before. The long laundry list of political giveaways to "buy" his presidency, and nobody blinked at the price tag. Milk and Honey for everyone is the rally cry, because in their mind any political re-alignment without Bush would be the land of milk and honey.But those are not the "promises", I am concerned about, it was his "Change" as applied to "doing things differently" in Washington. Having a mor "civil tone", and not participating in the "politics of personal destruction". Obama was supposed to be the golden child of change, staying aboue the fray in his Ivory tower.However the reality is that politics is a nasty, dirty business. Something Obama wanted to change, something his supporters wanted changed. They wanted to claim the "moral high ground" of being "about the issues" and not about political minutia.That has not happened. His supporters are worse than ever with their sexist responses and hypotheticals of McCain dying. Sure the VP from Alaska is a woman, but the Obama followers calling her a "five time baby popper" and worse is not the "moral high ground", I expect in this "enlightened crowd".There is more discussion all of a sudden about "experience", of the VP nomination. How can this be, when confronted with the "experience issue" before the nomination, the MSM and the Obama-nuts just ignore the fact the Presidential cnadidate has only worked 143 days in National Office, and has ZERO executive experience. In acuality, the GOP VP pick is more experienced than the DNC Presidential pick.However the DailyKos, MoveOn, HuffingtonPost, and this blog let lefties go unchallanged in their misinformation campaign.Look long before slinging mud, as your guy has much if not more "corruption", "bad judgements", and lack of experience than the VP for the GOP.This group of Obama supporters would howl with outrage when Michelle Obama made her stupid statment of the first time being proud of being an American, but this same group in supreme hypocriscy and delusion, misrepresents the record of Palin, and I have seen a level of sexism that is undeniable and justified by the Obama supporters.If even one post from a GOP supporter talked about Obam's limitations in anyway however it is termed racism, and even the MSM is making unfounded statments that if Obama is not elected, it means that America is Still a racist country.The land of milk and honey supported by this level of delusion is not a place I want America to become, and the left needs to get ahold of itself. There is a mountian of women getting very disenfranchised by the Obama campaign every time Palin is attacked in a sexist and dishonest manner.Continue down this path please, because in doing so you wil guarantee a McCain victory.
