The Left is losing what little remains of it's collective mind in it's relentless attack on all things Sarah Palin.
First, they rolled back feminism 50 years by suggesting Sarah Palin learn her place and be a stay-at-home mom like a good little woman should. Do they still make those dresses like Beaver Cleaver's mom used to wear ? Maybe Sarah Palin can buy some of those to vacuum in and to fetch Todd Palin's slippers and pipe when he comes home from work. At least now we know who the sexists are.
Then, the National Organization For Women proved that it isn't a national organization for women at all, it's a national organization for liberalism. NOW's spokeperson said of Palin, "She's more a conservative man than she is a woman on women's issues. Very disappointing." So, a woman can only be a woman if she is a liberal woman. If not, she's a man. How interesting. At least now we know who the feminists aren't.
Next, the Left decided to start rumors that Sarah Palin's baby wasn't her own, that it was really her daughter's. I heard this one repeated as if it were the truth only a couple days ago by Bill Maher on his HBO TV show, Real [Dumb] Time With Bill Maher. Maher also made a disgusting joke about Plain's Down Syndrome baby being the result of inbreeding/incest/rednecks up there in Wah-silla, Ay-las-ka. Yeah, what a knee-slapper, Maher, a family having a Down Syndrome child is just hilarious.
Palin's been called a bimbo beauty queen, a cheerleader, a hick, a jesus freak, a slut who had an affair, repulsive, shrill, arrogant, overly ambitious, a b*tch, the governor of an oversized igloo, vindictive, mean-spirited, a fraud, provincial, a non-intellectual anti-Obama, and so many other vicious slurs that I can't even remember them all.
Palin has been cast as a bad mother because her daughter is pregnant. Palin's support of abstinence education has been attacked because her daughter is pregnant. The entire problem of teen pregnancy has been blamed on Palin because her daughter is pregnant. That's quite a stretch [mark], don't you think ?
Several members of the liberal media (do any of you STILL question whether the media is liberal ?) have wondered aloud whether Sarah Palin could handle the job of VP when she has to tend for her Down Syndrome child at home. This question would never, ever be asked of a man. John Edwards was running for president when his wife Elizabeth had cancer. Edwards has two children at home, ages 10 and 8. You never heard anyone question whether he should be running for president, away from home for long periods of time. Never.
The liberal media hordes have descended on Wasilla, Alaska in such great numbers to dig for dirt on Palin that they've had to establish a numbering system to grant them all access to the town records. I've read more hit pieces on Sarah Palin in the last week than I've read on Joe Biden in my entire life. In fact, I don't think I've ever read a hit piece on Joe Biden. Hmmm. Maybe I'll write one, just for a little fairness and balance.
And did you know Sarah Palin's husband had a DUI 22 years ago ? Um-hmm. That proves they are a dysfunctional family (but Obama smoking dope and snorting cocaine in high school and college doesn't mean anything).
But Republicans are the mean ones with the attack smear machine. Gimme a break already.
What is most amazing of all is, the liberal media has accomplished all this smearing in ONE WEEK. You can't say the little hatemongers aren't dedicated. Lord only knows what next week will bring. Sarah Palin will probably be responsible for global warming by then.
So, it was actually refreshing for me to read the following phony attack Barack Obama made against Sarah Palin, because, even though it was phony and hypocritical, it was ON THE ISSUES. In a remarkably self-unaware comment, Obama had the nerve to go after Sarah Palin for securing earmarks when she was the mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, as follows:
“I know the governor of Alaska has been, you know, saying she is change. And that is great. She is a skillful politician. But when you been taking all these earmarks when it is convenient and then suddenly you are the champion anti-earmark person. That is not change, come on. I mean, words mean something. You can’t just make stuff up. You can’t just make stuff up." - Barack Obama
The reasons this attack is phony and hypocritical is because BARACK OBAMA HAS SECURED $740 MILLION IN EARMARKS since he's been in the Senate, including earmarks for his wife's hospital. Here's a reply from the McCain campaign to Obama:
"Barack Obama has requested the equivalent of one million dollars in new pork barrel spending for every working day he’s been in the U.S Senate, while John McCain has never once asked for an earmark, and Governor Palin has vetoed hundreds of millions in government spending including killing the infamous “bridge to nowhere”. Just like so many other issues Barack Obama is all talk, has no record to back it up and isn’t ready to make change." — Tucker Bounds, spokesman McCain-Palin 2008
You're full of it, Barack, but thanks for staying on relevant topics, and off the asinine personal attacks like the rest of your side has been waging. You get points for that alone.
P.S. - For the root cause of Palin Derangement Syndrome, look no further than this. The latest Zogby poll has it: McCain/Palin - 49.7%, Obama/Biden - 45.9%. Bounce.
