Wow, if this blogger can get enough people together maybe we WILL see a Palin/Cheney ticket in 2012.
Seriously, why is it that some of these people equate "criticism - misogyny?" And people who should know better? Did anyone else see Carly Fiorina (McCain's economic advisor) complain about Tina Fey's portrayal of Sarah Palin as "sexist?" This from someone who broke through a glass ceiling herself? Here are quotes if you didn't see it:
"it portrayed the Alaska governor as lacking in substance."
"sexist in the sense that just because Sarah Palin has different views than Hillary Clinton does not mean that she lacks substance."
Hillary got her fair share in that skit as well.
But what I find troubling is that now the "sexism police" are trying to tell us it's fine to say a male politician is lacking in substance, but if you suggest that of a female, it is "sexist."
Sorry folks, I'm female, I've broken through a glass ceiling myself, and one thing I've learned is that once you rise above a certain level, you need a thick skin. If you're female or black, someone will jump in that. If you're a white guy, they'll find SOMETHING to jump on, it just can't be construed as sexism or racism. Like with Bush one thing is his inablility to string a coherent sentence together.
Oh and the epitaph, McCain has now muzzled Fiorina after she blurted out that in her opinion neither McCain nor Palin (or for that matter Obama or Biden) could run a major corporation. This is the same gal who was forced out as CEO of Hewlett-Packard after its value dropped by about half during her five years there.
