Whose War On Women?

I remember the day that Sarah Palin was chosen by John McCain to be his running mate. Up until that day I barely even knew who she was.

When the announcement was first made all the Obot blogs fell silent for over an hour as they awaited their official talking points. Then Bill Burton of the Obama campaign made a statement calling Sarah a “former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy” and the tone for the rest of the fall campaign was set.

Even though the Obama campaign eventually walked it back and said some semi-nice things about Sarah, all the Obot blogs and OFA trolls kept echoing Burton. It’s been a misogyny fest ever since.

I guess I should point out that it wasn’t the GOP that behaved like the He-Man Woman Haters Club towards Hillary in the Spring of 2008 either. It was the Obama campaign and his followers.

    I still remember Palin Day. Someone mentioned that the nominee was announced and I went to Drudge to read about it. The first picture of Sarah I saw was a woman in a rain slicker holding a fish.

    The only problem I had with Palin was when the surprise announcement came out about Bristol. This was very similar to the secrets about Jack Ryan and Alan Keyes that came out when they dared to oppose Obama.

      That was an amazing speech at the RNC convention.

        Yes it was ! I knew who Sarah was, only because one of my friends who knows lives in Arizona ; used to live in Alaska , and knew who she was and liked her . We checked her out online when she she made McCain’s list of possible picks . We really liked her , but we agreed that the possibility of John McCain choosing her was slim to none . When he did , I was ecstatic ! I remember what I said at the time , “Obama , You have been SERVED ! ” You betcha !

    I guess this is the only way Hill can get back at the ‘Bots. She can’t complain about how they treated her and expect to retain any Dem party loyalty (which she isn’t going to get anyway) but can make public that they wanted her to replicate the disgusting behavior that was perpetrated against her. I guess it is better than nothing.

    I predicted John McCain would pick Sarah Palin in a discussion at Talk Looney in early June. (I was laughed at big time.) I knew a group of prominent women, including Carly Fiorina, had gone to him and asked him to choose a woman. I knew there were some wealthy Hillary supporters in the group. I knew he would choose a governor. I knew he would choose someone high energy to counteract the meme he was too old. I knew he would prefer someone who could be part of his “maverick” shtick. She was the only possible choice. The crime was not using all of the things he chose her for in the campaign.

      Typical Republican problem is not committing. It was a bold idea to pick Palin. It had good political calculus. She was one of only 2 sitting female Republican governors. She had over 80% approval. She was young, attractive and personable.

      The problem came when there with the backlash by an Obama sympathetic media. There was Nicolle Wallace deciding that the best way to present Palin was to book her with the jackals who wanted to tear her apart. McCain was useless, probably because he really wanted to run with Joe Lieberman.

      Palin respected McCain and when his people asked her not to take the fight to Obama, she scaled back. By the end, the campaign was almost embarrassed to have Palin on the ticket even though she was the ones crowds came to see.

      Well the Old Republican men weren’t happy about Sarah either. After all she took an opportunity to be VP away from a Republican man! It just so sucks when people like Palin don’t limit themselves to further the sexist entitlements old guys know they deserve! Most of them probably still think they lost the election because of Palin they don’t realize many of us voted for Palin in 2008.

    • leslie says:

      I remember! I hadn’t heard of her before you mentioned her name. I thought it was a wicked bad choice and loved it!

    Yes, the kitchen is done!!! The house is finished! Final inspections tomorrow and we can become normal (sorta) human beings again!! Thanks for the encouragement.
    So here this….if you could combine Sarah Palin for style and Mitt Romney for good ideas….you’d have a great Republican candidate for president.

    • 49erDweet says:

      I could be talked into a Palin-Cruz ticket, but only if they were turned loose and allowed to be themselves. Any attempts at throttling or controlling their messages would backfire. And there would be strenuous attempts to do just that.

    • angienc says:

      I wish you many years of joy cooking your new kitchen!

      • driguana says:

        Thanks…I love to cook and have really missed it…plus I have a large garden and have had to give away a lot of the things growing there to the neighbors….not that they mind!!!

    • leslie says:

      Congratulations!!. After going through this all summer last year, I certainly know what a relief and joy it is. Many, many years of cooking happiness.

    • swanspirit says:

      I want pics of your culinary adventures!!!! Congrats I have kitchen envy!

    According to twitter Obama is now claiming that he “didn’t make the call” on Bergdahl.

    How long before he claims he read about it in the paper?

    • 1539days says:

      Well, then security must be really shitty at Gitmo because 5 terrorists managed to escape and make their way to Qatar.

      • lyn says:

        LOL. Yeah, right.

      • Constance says:

        Oh! so it is actually the Republicans fault! Of course. We should have known…and Bush, don’t forget Bush!

      • Lulu says:

        I think that was illegal. They better be typing up a back dated signing statement to that effect. I don’t think SoD has the authority to turn loose terrorists from Gitmo. And if so why didn’t they say so before this all turned to shit. Hagel is on record saying he supported the Prezzy’s decision if I recall. This looks like “Mikey did it!”

        • lyn says:

          Lean forward, Chucky.

          • Lulu says:

            And Obama DOES NOT regret HIS decision. What about that one? I know (pretending I am a highly touted PR professional and foreign policy expert in the WH). Obama was drunk when he said it. And he was, er, uh, protecting Chuckie. From the vicious DiFi. That will do until we think of something else to blow up their ass tomorrow. Let’s party!

    • Constance says:

      Maybe he has an evil twin…that would explain a lot.

      There are two social welfare systems that Americans are happy to pay for: one is the military, the other is the prison system. Both warp American society and American politics.

      American friends of mine who’ve lived abroad for extended periods are always shocked when they return by how militaristic their native society is, from cadets parading at high school games on upwards and outwards. They forget, then they remember.

      • votermom says:

        It is true that a lot of other countries view and treat their military with contempt.
        One of the values that make America exceptional is that we honor our military and are grateful for their service.

      • 1539days says:

        They neglect to mention that when they fly back to the US, the other country’s airport likely has police with automatic weapons at the gates.

      I feel a little sorry for Bergdahl after reading about his dad. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2014/06/09/obamas_bergdahl_fiasco_122906-2.html
      I do not feel sorry for people in the town that believed one of the town “kooks” without verifying anything. The town should be mad at Obama and Mr Bergdahl and not the people who informed them they were suckered.

      • swanspirit says:

        People often join the military seeking “structure ” . Many benefit greatly from it , some cannot function without it , for others it doesn’t help them .

    Iowahawk’s on a roll wrt Hillary’s “dead broke” statement:

    Like many of you, lean times have often forced me to take temp work giving $200k speeches to corporations.

    #HillaryIsSoPoor she has 3 limos and a Gulfstream V up on blocks in front of her 30-room trailer.

    #HillaryIsSoPoor all of her political offices have been hand-me-downs.
