Emily's List launches effort to abate Palin's political impact
The Hill ^ | August 17, 2010 | Michael O'Brien

Posted on 08/17/2010 8:14:47 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

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.

Huh?! I was told by the MSM and even several people here on FR that Governor Sarah Palin is ineffective, a loser, a quitter, backs RINOs, etc, etc... Why then would Emily's List spend a ton of money to "refudiate" her? Does not compute!!

Don't throw Sarah in the briar patch, Emily!

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!

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.

Sarah Palin doesn't speak for me either.
Emily's List does.

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.

"Emily's List President Stephanie Schriock will detail the group's new "Sarah Doesn't Speak for Me"..."

One of the all-time, stupidest statements ever...

So I guess Schriock does NOT believe in America, Freedom, and liberty; those are the things that Sarah mostly promotes and speaks about.

"Emily's List" will have about as much of an effect on Palin as the "mad hatters" had on the TEA party movement....zilch.

Sarah has already overcome "Goliath", in terms of media bashing and other obstacles...I don't think she'll fall to pieces over Stephanie Schriock's opinion.

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.

Hey Stephanie Schriock, prepare to become bear breakfast.

Waaaaay outta your league honey. Waaay out.

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 Tester’s (D-Montana) office as chief of staff
