Skip to comments.McCain Doesn't Get It: Women are NOT that stupid [Barbra Streisand Alert!]

Maybe he was sick of the lack of media attention maybe he had enough of the late night talk show hosts poking fun at his age maybe he realized that belonging to a party that has been associated with rich, white men was not going to connect with voters in this historical election year. Or maybe he was just ready to take back some of the spotlight that has shined so brightly on Barack Obama and the Democrats since the beginning of the Democratic convention. Desperation can motivate people to make some pretty cynical and hypocritical decisions. Whatever the reason, John McCains Hail Mary-- in the form of Vice Presidential pick Governor Sarah Palin--sent a very clear message to America about how he views female voters. Women, he thinks, will vote another woman into office regardless of the candidate's values, experience and political positions.
No one can dispute that this decision was micro-targeted to the small percentage of Independent and Democratic women residing in the Rocky Mountain West, who strongly supported Hillary Clinton in the primary and still find themselves undecided as we move into the general election. Unfortunately, what John McCain failed to realize is that after eight long and destructive years of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and their cronies, American voters will not fall prey to political ploys once again.

"Women are NOT that stupid!"
Well, duh! That's why McCain chose a woman...
Ack. Was she holding a piece of cardboard in that shot? I can’t tell.
Blechhh...didn’t need a photo confirmation. LOL
Well, of course, not all women.
Just ones like Babs.
Compare her background to that of President Grover Cleveland.
Elected Sheriff of Erie Co., NY, in 1870 for a 4-year term. Goes back into private law practice at the end of the term.
1881, elected as mayor of Buffalo
1882, elected as governor of New York
1884, elected to the presidency
Democrats should just shut up about Palins Grover Cleveland problem...
Apparently, you are this stupid.
Shut up and sing, Babs.
LOL! Great retort! But I don't think streisand would understand it.
I guess it is true: In time married folk really do begin to look alike. At first I thought that was James Brolin.
Streisand should know that more people adhere to traditional values than liberal values. The traditional values people are excited about this choice. And it’s not because Sarah is a woman, it’s because she’s a good conservative who is a fighter in a way that Hillary Clinton is not.
How’d you like to wake up every morning and see THAT staring back at you?
and Palin is very very smart. She is the Barracuda, the Black Widow. You wink back at her and she’ll bite your head off.
Obviously Babs has not checked out what the fine feminists over on the Hillary boards are saying. She's almost as stupid as Pelosi.
Kiss me Baby,,,ROLL TIDE.
That is exactly why Sarah Palin is a great choice! I agree with Sarah's values and political positions.
I think Babs is describing most liberal women's problem. They vote on one issue and that is abortion.
Hey, Babs, I guess it didn't 'upset' your 'values' to sleep with Hillary's husband!
Hey, Babs. What about shriveled hags. You have THAT one down pat.
I recall reading her drivel in prior election years, and she was incoherent and nearly illiterate. I believe that she now spends all the money she saves hanging out her laundry on the Malibu chaparral on paying someone to guestwrite her own blog.
When is her next “Absolutely, Positively Last” tour?
