Sarah Palin: An Embarrassment To Women

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.” — Abraham Lincoln



Sarah Palin has turned out to be a complete embarrassment to women.  And John McCain has disqualified himself from holding the highest office in the land the moment he picked this complete farce of a VP nominee.  With this reckless act he has done more damage to the women’s cause than anybody else in recent history.  We all should feel especially sorry for Republican women.


Sarah, sweetheart, winking at the audience like a cocktail waitress does not make you a serious contender for the vice presidency.  I cannot even imagine a Hillary Clinton, Kay Bailey Hutchison or Olympia Snowe trying to wink themselves to being taken seriously.  We women have come too far and had to fight too hard to have you turn us back in an instant.  What in the world are you thinking?  And you call yourself a feminist?  I think not!  Your extreme and radical views on issue after issue stand opposite to everything most of us believe in.  We want to move forward, not backward!  It’s surprising that you don’t seem to be very interested in the world around you as your answers in your now infamous interviews indicate.  Besides memorized keyword answers, there was nothing usable coming from your mouth when asked on a subject you evidently did not prepare for, or when faced with a follow-up question.  And that includes such softball questions like ‘Which Supreme Court case do you disagree with?’ and ‘Which publications do you read?’  Come on, Sarah, not even the ‘Star’ at the checkout counter?  Sometimes your answers are borderline ridiculous.


As someone with a major in journalism and having been a sportscaster, it is interesting that you seem to have problems putting words in proper order, and between your general gibberish and the ‘you betcha,’ ‘doggone it’ and misplaced ‘also,’ I’m not sure whether this is all just an act to appeal to your favorite guy ‘Joe Six-Pack,’ or whether it is indeed another sign that there’s not much up there between your ears?  But even for people like myself, whose native language is something other than English, it’s actually quite embarrassing to see somebody on the national political stage who looks so doggone uneducated.  Also, it is ‘nuclear,’ not ‘nucular.’  We’ve had to deal with another idiot for eight years who also had problems with pronunciation and embarrassed himself and by extension all of us on a daily basis.  We just don’t want that anymore.  Believe it or not, we want a president and vice president who are just a little smarter than we are.  And you simply don’t fit the bill.  While appealing to a certain fragment of society, you turn off most everybody else, especially women, who, so we were told, you were supposed to attract to your ticket.


Sweetheart, when you accuse Barack Obama of hanging out with terrorists and having radical associates without any truth to either of these claims, why don’t you include your own and John McCain’s questionable and much more important associations?  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, let me help you out with a few suggestions.  When bringing up Rev. Wright, why don’t you mention your own pastor (Muthee) who is a witch doctor and has prayed over you to, among other things, protect you from witchcraft.  When mentioning Bill Ayers, why don’t you mention John McCain’s friendship with G. Gordon Liddy who is a convicted felon and was one of the main operatives during Watergate and made many quite outrageous statements over the years (‘If the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms insists upon a firefight, give them a firefight.  Just remember, they’re wearing flak jackets and you’re better off shooting for the head.’ – G. Gordon Liddy advising Branch Davidians how to defend themselves from ATF agents during a radio show.)  Domestic terrorist sympathizer?  Or how about John McCain sitting on the board of the ‘US Council for World Freedom’ for several years?  An organization which was linked to former Nazi collaborators and ultra-right-wing death squads in Central America, and a meeting place of unsavory characters, extremists, racists and anti-Semites?  Was John hanging out with radicals?


When calling Barack Obama unpatriotic, why don’t you explain your husband’s and your own relationship with the Alaskan Independence Party?  Your husband was a member for seven years and you sent a videotaped message to one of their meetings ‘Keep up the good work!’ as late as six months ago.  The ‘good work’ they are involved in and you apparently approve of is trying to secede from the United States.  Sarah, are you unpatriotic?  What about John McCain’s involvement in the ‘Keating Five’?  I’m sure many older people will remember that scandal very well because they lost a lot of money.


And while you’re at it, please let us know why you think the Iraq war is a task from God?  How do you know?  Has he told you that?  We know that George Bush has a direct line to God, because we read about it in Bob Woodward’s book ‘God told me to invade Iraq’ – George Bush.  So, were you on a conference call with George and God?  And if so, what else did he tell you?  Just checking.

Oh, I forgot:  MAVERICK.

    Gee, I thought I would find some useful information here since you directed me to this blog…. What I am reading is that you find Sarah Palin to be an embarrassment to women because she ummm…winks, pronounces some words differently than you do, and only speaks of her candidate’s positive qualities instead of bringing up his negative points….

    Again, I implore you to try to be unbiased and hold Biden to the same standard.

    The websites above explain my position on Joe Biden. If Sarah Palin had said those things she would have been ripped to shreds-oh wait- she HAS been ripped to shreds!
    I liked Obama from the first time I heard him speak. Even though I disagree with some of his lines of thinking I have had an open mind about him. Because of the color of his skin I worry about him being targeted by racists and radicals. If they were to remove him from the picture we would be left with Biden-and THAT is a scary prospect! I do not feel that Biden is capable of leading this country!!!!!
    Threats rose against Obama as the level of fear rose in regards to Obama. The level of fear rose because of the questions that people had that the biased media refused to answer. My intuition about Obama is that he is a good man who has our best interests at heart, but my logical mind wants to know WHY he has seemingly had so many connections with communist and terrorist? Was he really campaigning for Odinga?? Why would he do such a thing? Why did he stay in a church that preached hate towards our country? People have questions that the media refused to answer.
    Why did the media refuse to answer?
    Because if they ran these stories or even hinted at them they were immediately labeled as being racist! Look what happened when Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a picture of Obama in Muslim garb!
    The people have legitimate questions that should have been addressed. Instead we were shushed with “Let’s talk about the economy”.
    The level of violence had nothing to do with Palin-it had to do with the fires that were fueld on the internet and not put out by the media.

    In the end, disrespect and name-calling are inappropriate.
    I respect Barrack Obama, John McCain, and Sarah Palin. McCain did not win because he looked too much like Bush, acted too much like Bush, and did not inspre passion in people like Obama did.

    There is no need to call Palin a moron.

  6. Message from Andrea to Luciao

    I think I’ve made my case why I think Sarah Palin is an embarrassment to women in this and other posts. After all she was running to be vice president and president, if necessary, and not for the local PTA.

    That’s why a lot of people were scared to death by the prospect of her even being so close to being VP. THANK GOD that didn’t become reality. What a scary thought though, nevertheless.

    Anyway, we just agree to disagree on that. 🙂

    Nice chatting with you.

    sara palin is more like the average american than you are she is a good person who loves our country where as you and obama do not.

  8. @bruce: Thank you for your comment, Bruce.

    As with many things, we just have to agree to disagree on the topic of Sarah Palin. I have made my case in detail in this and other posts why I believe she is a moron, and has certainly no business being in the positions she was in as Governor of Alaska, or running for Vice President. And I might add, the vast majority of the American people agrees with that. Naturally, you have every right to disagree with my reasons. You see, that’s the beauty of living in this country and loving it very much. I would never question her, or your, patriotism/love of this country, as you never know what is in somebody’s heart or mind. I just simply believe that everybody wants the best for America and the American people, even those I disagree with…

    But I do thank you for your comment and hope you may enjoy some of my other postings…

    Have a beautiful day!
