I have watched excitement among professional, mature, experienced women turn into red hot anger as male Obama apologists try and claim Palin’s experience to be Commander-in-Chief (more elected years in office, more executive years in office, years commanding troops, years running a business) is less than Obama’s community organization and speech making. These arrogant males are trying to raise the bar for Palin while lowering it for Obama is pissing women off no end.
This, gents, is why women want to break the glass ceiling and bury this crap once and for all. And the more the media and men (left and right, btw) set up two tracks on experience which is completely tilted for Obama – and it is mostly men tilting the track – the more women will throw party allegiance away and realize they can end theÂ millenniaÂ of the ‘superior male’.
I like our moose-burger eating, gun-toting, business leading woman, mother of 5, Governor of Alaska (while pregnant) VP. The Barracuda and the Maverick will take on the Messiah and the Mouth – and win.
Update: The sick brother-in-law being investigated for driving his squad car while drunk, killing a moose on duty for fun, and possibly abusing the Governor’s nephew is not going to rally women. Women all have a story of the shunned asshole guy who tried to make life hell for them in an act of petty revenge. And the charge of tasering his child makes contact by the aunt and uncle with police very legitimate. I don’t think I have ever been as disgusted with American politics and news media as I have been today.
