More Feedback On Palin

Former Vice Presidential Candidate and Democrat Geraldine Ferraro had this response to Sarah Palin.

This Might Do It for McCain

By Geraldine Ferraro
Former Democratic Vice Presidential Candidate/FOX News Political Contributor
It’s going to be a very interesting campaign. I must say that several months ago I said that it would be great if there was a woman on the ticket — that I felt that John McCain would have to pick someone, especially if Hillary was the nominee. But without Hillary being the nominee it’s really quite equally as important because people are looking for a smart campaign and I think this might do it.

There are a lot of women who are disaffected by how Hillary was treated by the media, by how she was treated by the Obama campaign, by how she was treated by the Democratic National Committee — [Democratic party chairman] Howard Dean not speaking up when sexism raised its ugly head in the media. They’ll be looking to see what happens now.

The Dems have their Messiah and now will proceed to trash Palin like they did poor Hillary.

Just checked on Wikipedia and learned that :

"Palin won the Miss Wasilla beauty contest, then finished second in the Miss Alaska pageant, at which she won a college scholarship. In the Wasilla pageant, she played the flute and won "Miss Congeniality."

Palin holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of

I understand that she and her husband have 5 children, the oldest is 19 and the youngest is 4 months (who suffers from Downs Syndrome). Many have commented on Sarah's priority of being a mother and that she should put the welfare of her children first, especially the 4-month-old baby,
while she is racing around trying to convince us to vote McCain for

John McCain's selection of this woman as his VP is idiotic at best and really boggles my mind. I don't wish McCain any harm, but can you imagine, should the Republicans win, Miss Congeniality might just become the next President of the United States if and when McCain kicks the bucket before he turns 76?

Hillary's quote is worth quoting again and again: NO WAY, NO HOW, NO McCAIN.

The only thing scarier than her lack of experiecne as VP is Obama's lack of experience, candor and honesty as PRESIDENT!!!! He won't be a heartbeat away, he will be the heartbeat. That is G-damn scary to anyone with half a brain!. Guess that rules out his Democrat supporters though, huh?

Whoa.....sexism abounds in the Democratic Party......Because women usually are the mothers in a family should they always be precluded from careers that are busy......Should Addie Jenne Russell drop out because she too has a young child.....but would anyone ask a man with young children, like Renzi, to stay home with the kids...No of course not.......This is the subtle stuff that helps keep the glass celing in tact.

Palin reminds me exactly of George Bush. Another good ol boy who is pro guns, anti abortion, anti children's programs, anti sex education (no kidding!)
We are in such critical times, we need a leader who will surround himself with the best and brightest from the best schools. Not another shallow thinking redneck giving speeches to the right wing and encouraging hatred politics. As a working woman I am offended by her and the buttons of her supporters. It's obvious she doesn't put her own children in front of her ambitions.
