I can no longer sit by and stomach the ignorant, stupid, air-headed comments and support that many women are giving to Sarah Palin, ending their “positions” with a gush and “we have a woman! YAY!”
You are telling the world that most of America’s female votes can be bought by merely putting a talking vagina on the ticket. That talking vagina can take the most anti-woman stand but it matters not to you.
Don’t you find it ironic that this woman opposes a woman’s reproductive rights, yet she (and her daughter) are exercising the same CHOICE that they don’t want you to have? Sarah Palin believes that an 11 year old girl, raped and impregnated by her uncle, should be FORCED to carry the fetus to term. You see nothing wrong with this philosophy that she would try to force on you and your daughters? Sarah Palin (and many like her) aren’t pro-life, they’re pro-BIRTH. They don’t give a rat’s ass about the life AFTER birth. Doesn’t it stick in your craw that a woman whose teenage daughter is pregnant would SLASH FUNDING for pregnant teens that need a place to live?
You blather stupidly about how she’s home spending time with her son before he ships out to Iraq but WHY is he shipping out to Iraq? Because of the dishonesty and lies of the administration that SHE SUPPORTS! And, on top of it, the war in Iraq is GOD’S WILL, according to her. “…our leaders, our national leaders, are sending U.S. soldiers out on a task that is from God.”
You are okay with the fact that she thinks God wants a $30 million gas pipeline built? “I think God’s will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built, so pray for that,”
Six months ago, Palin told members of the Alaskan Independence Party — who advocate for a vote on secession from the union — to “keep up the good work” and wished the party luck on what she called its “…inspiring convention.” You’re okay with that?
You’re fine with this woman representing the women of America, even though she believes that the founding fathers wrote the Pledge of Allegiance? In 2006, when asked by the Eagle Forum Alaska if she found the phrase “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance offensive, Palin replied, “Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me.” But the words “Under God” didn’t appear in the Pledge until 1954. The Pledge itself wasn’t written until 1892. — Huffington Post
It’s just duckie with you that, on a promise to slash taxes and, by doing so, she left the town she was mayor of $20 million in debt after her administration there? Or that she did not correct McCain’s claim that she sold a taxpayer purchased jet on eBay “for a profit,” even though she sold it to a private company for a half-million dollar LOSS? The acceptance of more than $25 million in “earmark” funding for the “Bridge to Nowhere,” even though the bridge wasn’t built but the money was kept — and THEN she tells you (because you’re clearly stupid enough to believe it) that she told Congress “Thanks but no thanks on that Bridge to Nowhere?”
You don’t see anything wrong with a woman who claims to be a champion for the environment, yet considers global warming to be “fiction,” wears animal fur, uses it to decorate her home, supports drilling for oil in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge, opposes putting the Polar Bear on the endangered species list AND tried to bully a law through the legislature that would lift the ban on shooting wildlife from the air?
And you lesbians, especially — what the hell is wrong with you? You support her because she’s a woman but you are only thinking with your estrogen and not your brain. If you vote for this woman, you vote for at least four more years of anti-gay government. And, with three Supreme Court judges nearing retirement, what, exactly, do you think that the Republican machine will install to fuck up the next two or three generations on the Supreme Court, based on your vote for someone’s gender rather than their politics?
Take a look at your partner (if you have one) and ask yourself “Does this woman represent government that will work to protect what we have together, or does she represent government that would continue to deny our rights?”
Vote for a woman because you agree with and support her politics. DON’T vote for a woman because she’s a woman. You set women back a hundred years in doing so.
