Skip to comments.McCain Doesn't Get It: Women are NOT that stupid [Barbra Streisand Alert!]
Posted on 08/30/2008 6:26:43 PM PDT by melt
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?
I bet Palin knows how to spell Gephardt.
How many women have said they supported Hillary because 'it's time to finally put a woman in the White House'?
I SING DAMMIT!
This coming from the Democrat party whose top members are riddled with poverty.
At the risk of another 24 hour suspension she looks like my left one after surfing
She doesn't know that because she doesn't ever meet them. She knows only her small liberal group. It would totally shock her to meet and talk to the women at a Christian Women's conference.
This from the person who thought Saddam was the leader of Iran. Babs is simply too stupid.
Certainly not as stupid as you, Babs. You are judging Sarah Palin simply on her gender, without even looking into whether or not she is qualified. But you are right, women are NOT stupid and when they learn Sarah’s story, they will support her on the merits.
Boy, thats one rough looking hag.
I see Baba got the DNC talking points, “desperation”,
“hail mary” etc.
Amazing how they all seem to speak the same words is it not?
I didn’t read it all but I noticed she wrapped it up with about 20 exclamation points so it must have been pretty good.
I thought people were supposed to look like their dogs.
No way I look like my husband.
...and men should vote for someone as inexperienced as Barack Hussein Obama, precisely why? Shut up you has been hag.
Streisand Doesn’t Get It: NOT All Women are Liberal Like Her!
Man, time hasn’t been kind to Babs.
Beauty comes from the inside.
Wow...she’s even more of a skagg than she used to be.
What exactly did Bush, Cheney and his “cronies” destroy?
Saddam Hussein’s regime of terror
I’m OK with that! Don’t blame conservatives for people with insufficient mathematical literacy to understand that an adjustable-rate mortgage might bust their budgets. Babs, you’re rich-what are YOU doing to help?
Oh just shut up and sing. On second thought, just shut up.
I'd walk... no I'd RUN... all the way back to Amityville.
Uh, Babs. You STILL believe everything the Clintons told you.........
The Dhims are so used to identity by sex and race that its completely escaped them that Palin’s true appeal is her strength of character and strong conservative values.
Babs is just an old hag that would be long forgotten if not for the adoration of gay men.
My eyes! Babs is wrong about herself, she’s as stupid as she is ugly.
Stupid? You can’t even spell her own name right. It’s B-a-r-b-a-r-a.
"My first wife, Barbra Streisand, became an icon, larger than life, and I had no understanding of why anybody would want to make themselves into something that isnt real. Why would anybody want an identity that makes itself an illusion bigger than life? Nothing is bigger in life other than God. And none of us is God."
Barbra can we tawk here? Do you think you're Courtney Love with that outfit? We've all got shpilkes in our geneckteckessoink from the sag monsters. Again I'm a little verklempt. A little emotional, little verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic. The Progressive Era was neither progressive nor an era. Discuss! There I feel better. Who knew?
No, you’re stupider.
Ugh ... she’s smuggling in cheese wheels.
