Other than smarts, what's Hillary got that Sarah ain't?
This is most of a comment that I put up elsewhere, in response to my someone who objected to my comparing Sarah Palin with a "hooker" re: her winking, smiling and mugging for the camera during her recent "debate" with Joe Biden. He wanted to know if I would have been AS insulting, in a sexist way, if McCain had picked a man--obviously he has no idea about the esteem in which I hold that steaming dung heap, JohnnyPOW. "...you think that's improper? tough shit. If McCain had picked a man as vacuuos, vapid and vainglorious as the ImPalinator you can bet your ass that I would be at least as insulting--and probably not stretching the truth all that much. McCain, by picking Palin, insults the intelligence of every thinking American--if he and his runningdoginlipstick mate can't handle the blowback, too bad. When someone like Sarah Palin uses her femininity as a campaign tool, she opens the door for the criticism that follows. Sarah Palin is not quite a hooker; she's more like a stripper, acting as if she's going to give you something you want, in exchange for your attention and money. At least you get some sort of relief when you spend time with a prostitute--all I get from watching GOD'S OWN governor do her "Poll dance" is a headache." He did not bring up Hillary Clinton BUT I will. Hillary Clinton has been lambasted, since at least 1991 for being, simultaneously, a weak, emotioanally fraught, hysterical shrew AND a cold, calculating, murderous, machiavellian bitch. Hillary is as tough as they get, imo, and can handle her own fights. Sarah Palin is touted, by her handlers and the mindless fucking zombies ( I hope that doesn't seem too harsh) that support her "Americageddon First" politics all go on and on about Sarah Palin.. They say she's as tough as a pitbull. If she's gonna be tough enough to run the country from an undisclosed location when JohnnyPOW infarcts or strokes out, then she'd better develop a skin at least as thick as one of the moose she likes to field dress. I have gotten more than a bit of criticism, including being called a misogynist, because I have said things about women, like Sarah Palin, that are not "gender neutral". Sorry, if you read me that way, but I am no more anti-woman than I am anti-man. I am anti-asshole and when the assholes label themselves as "...", they are going to be attacked using the label and whatever pejorative fits the occassion. I went to see Cheryl Wheeler (singer songwriter) last night. She was a hoot. She was wearing jeans and a sweatshirt of some sort. She apologized for her appearance and said she would have dressed up but "...when I saw that Sarah Palin was wearing the same outfit that I had inteneded to wear this evening while debating Joe Biden..." That brought the house down. I'm not sure if she's gay, but she's definitely a lesbian and very, very comfortable with her life. If McCain picked a woman like her, well, we can all have our fantasies.
