Skip to comments.Emily's List launches effort to abate Palin's political impact

The leaders of Emily's List unveiled a new resource center on Tuesday to promote their new campaign targeting Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R).
Emily's List President Stephanie Schriock will detail the group's new "Sarah Doesn't Speak for Me" campaign during an availability Tuesday morning at the National Press Club, part of an effort to combat Palin's effect in this fall's elections and push back against her slate of candidates.
The campaign will center at first on a new website, which highlights some of the more controversial things Palin and her candidates have said during the election cycle.
But the site will also give users an opportunity to provide support to the slate of female candidates in favor of abortion rights whom Emily's List backs. It will include a store, an opportunity to donate, and profiles of many of the candidates Palin has backed and many other resources.
The effort by the traditionally Democratic group is something of a direct effort to combat the pack of "mama grizzlies" that Palin has sought to bolster during this campaign cycle. These conservative women have been acclaimed by the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate as a new generation of political leaders set to head to Washington next year.
"It seems like it's kind of a mom awakening in the last year and a half, where women are just rising up and saying, 'No, we've had enough already,' " Palin said in a July Web video. "Because moms kind of just know when something's wrong."
The new Emily's List campaign won't be limited to the women Palin has supported, but looks to capitalize off the former Alaska governor's polarizing stature in American politics, especially among Democrats, who fret about the Republican candidates besting many of the incumbents Emily's List has traditionally supported come November.
Don't say you weren't warned!
Sounds like the feminazis don’t care for Governor Palin. I wouldn’t expect them to think Palin “speaks” for them. Monsters like Lenin, Stalin and Marx does that.
The left will always tell you through their actions who they fear. They fear Sarah!
Did they rip the idea from craigslist? sounds like an really unoriginal name
E.M.I.L.Y’s (Early Money Is Like Yeast) list is leftist organization founded to promote pro-abortion candidates. If it wasn’t against Palin I would be profoundly worried.
It’d be a shame if FReeper women were to join this website to “refudiate” the Emily’s list propaganda. :)
But everyone already KNOWS Palin doesn’t speak for man-hating pro-abortionist lesbian shrews.
The left is great at trying to rip off conservative tactics to try to counter what we are doing. They are horrible, however, at succeeding at them. Air America and Coffee Party are the first two that come to mind. They will fail at this too.
As you know, ‘Vet, the rats will tell you who they fear. It is Palin they fear.
I actually got a solicitation phone call from Emily’s List looking for money “to elect women” I wonder how many women may not know WHAT women they will give their money to
I wonder the same, vet, what with Huckleberry and Willard being so far in the lead...
Actions speak louder than polls.
Waaaaay outta your league honey. Waaay out.
Queers and Feminazis hate Ms.Palin with a passion usually reserved for the disdain normal folks feel for mass murderers....
And the wilding, or perhaps more appropriately, attempted wilding continues...
Let them. this is good. It will show everyone what a left wing, ineffective fringe groud they are.
It ain’t MS. Palin, it’s Mrs. Palin....
You are correct..my bad!
Yet they say nothing of Islam and the way Muslims treat women. Go figure.
Stephanie Schriock doesn't speak for me and neither does Emily's List.
Stephanie Schriock, campaign manager to Sen. Al Franken ... after the Franken recount (stolen election) was successfully concluded in July, returned to Sen. Jon Testers (D-Montana) office as chief of staff
