Sarah "Sexy Pants" Palin

Does anyone find it offensive that McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate?

I remember thinking during her first speech at the RNC (about her and Hillary Clinton breaking the glass ceiling) that this has to be the most offensive political tactic in a long time. Not only is she running against Hillary Clinton's (whom she claimed as her partner in this) party, she is pretty much the polar opposite of HillDawg as far as their views are concerned.

To me this feels like the republican party is simply saying, "Here you go feminists. Here is your woman. Happy? Please vote for her and get back to what you were doing in the kitchen." Palin is simply a tool that is being used to steal woman voters, women who were originally going to vote for Hillary. The Republican party and McCain are basically saying vote for this woman regardless of her views because she is a woman, not because she has anything to bring to the White House. It seems as if though they are expecting women to vote only on the basis of description and not substance, as if they are trying to trick women into voting for them by throwing Palin at them.

This shows no respect towards what women were fighting for when they were supporting Hillary. This is a slap to the face of Hillary's cause. This is idiotic and offensive and it demonstrates clearly how low McCain is going to go to steal votes. There is no glass cieling being broken here, she is not even the first female VP candidate. Don't be fooled.
And yes, I know that the picture is of Tina Fey and not Sarah Palin. Hopefully you know that too if you are planning to vote for her ticket.

Hello All,

Welcome to my mind. At times you may become disoriented or motion sick, it is completely normal. If it becomes too much for you to handle, simply close your eyes and back away from the computer. My mind is not intended for pregnant women or patrons with back or neck problems.

Disclaimers aside,


Xstian has added me as a contributor to Daily Eccentricities and I look forward to sharing my thoughts with everyone bored enough to be reading this right now. As stated in Xtian's first post, this will by no means be a journal, but simply a means to post my thoughts, opinions, and revelations. For those of you that know me (I know I know, all of you probably know me. Just let me pretend there are thousands of readers out there so I can feel important and such), you can probably guess that most of what I post will be on political issues since there is nothing more I would rather rant about. But, from time to time I am sure I will write about something more fun so please keep reading, I beg you. I look forward to contributing, hopefully actively, and I also look forward to your thoughts and opinions.

See ya around...
