Another Republican Stereotype Bites the Dust

The Republican reaction to McCain's choice of Governor Sarah Palin ranges from ecstatic (Hugh Hewitt) to worried about her lack of experience (Bill Stuntz), with the ecstatics outnumbering the worriers about 50 to 1. Mark Steyn, who has been pretty quiet since his prosecution for 'hate' speech, weighs in in the middle, I think, or on the support side of the middle. Then there is the reaction of the left. And contained in the reaction is a strong whiff of misogyny.

Semi dwarf 'comedian' Bill Maher called her a MILF and a stewardess on his program among other classy things, none of which, sadly, were funny. He's funnier here.

It is funny that Governor Tim Kaine has almost the same experience as Palin, but when he was in the running for VP, not a word was uttered about his lack of experience. To the Democrats he was fully qualified for VP.

The Obama camp was utterly dismissive. Let's hope they continue not to take her seriously.

CNN 's John Roberts worried could she be VP with her triploidy 23 baby boy. He managed to offend two groups of Americans with one comment.

Here are some picked at random comments from lefty sites on the web.

I suspect that there was some calculation that selecting a woman for the ticket would motivate some Democratic women who supported Senator Clinton during the
primaries. Personally, I find it hard to believe that supporters of Senator Clinton would be moved by this pick. Palin is an anti-choice former beauty queen
-- she has none of the experience, depth, or gravitas that Senator Clinton has. In fact, I think this selection is an insult to women who supported Senator Clinton. McCain thinks they are stupid, and that selecting any woman would be enough to win their support. It doesn't matter who it is -- as long as she has ovaries.

I am surprised. I thought it would be Romney.
I didn't expect this and it frankly astounds me.My first thought is that maybe he's having an affair with her. Really. It's that bizarre. She looks like Katherine Harris. More makeup than Cindy McCain. Talk about caked on like a trollop. They must be planning to steal the election.

Women are stupid
if they vote for her...... We already know men are stupid. She is not ready to be commander in chief, imagine the commercials with the Experience label.

79. "Here's a vagina, girls... cast your vote!"
That's what this is...sheer desperation marketing. Their thinking? Hillary rallied the troops, and now this sweet thing will benefit McCain.So... what is it? A re we voting on a vagina? Is that all we want? Someone who looks like US? She isn't me. No thank you. And I can't believe she quoted HIllary. I am so offended.

You know, this is touted as being a close race, where just a few votes in a handful of states could very well make the difference. I know there is a lot of dissatisfaction among the feminists that their candidate was barely defeated yet wholly discarded, not even vetted for consideration for Vice President. And Hillary is twice the man Joe Biden is and outpolled him by a ratio of about 1,000 to 1, among Democrats. I know that most of them will bitch and moan and then vote for Obama, but if even as few as two or three thousand are so turned off by that dissing and the current anti woman spectacle, in the right states, that could make all the difference in the world.

The truth is that you just never know how someone is going to perform in an executive role. Lincoln was a one term Representative and had no executive experience, yet took to it like a duck to water, was in the top two presidents of all time. Carter, on the other hand, had been a state legislator for years and a governor of Georgia for four years, and he just sucked at it. It all depends on the strength of character and judgement of the person.

There's also a lot of 'pot calling kettle smoke darkened' on the left, in that Obama has little to no experience, certainly none as an executive, if you ignore wasting $100,000,000 of the Annenberg Challenge money. And even Obama thinks he's inexperienced.


"Today, I shot a moose in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas I'll never know."

Groucho from beyond the grave.

If McCain gets elected we can send this photograph to Tsar Valdimir I, Robert Mugabe, Ahmadinejad, Kim Il Sung, etc. and the photos will all be signed by Miss Congenialty, although I will still take Sandra Bullock in a pinch. Or maybe I would stil rather pinch Sandra Bullock?

Pinch Sandra in the buttock.
