McCain Doesn't Get It: Women are NOT that stupid [Barbra Streisand Alert!]
Barbra Streisand.com ^ | 8/30/08 | Barbra Streisand

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 McCain’s 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.

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 Palin’s “Grover Cleveland” problem...

I guess it is true: In time married folk really do begin to look alike. At first I thought that was James Brolin.

And that's the reason for the $7m bump in CHECK-WRITERS to the McCain campaign. I find that much more persuasive than polls or pundits.

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.

Obviously Babs has not checked out what the fine feminists over on the Hillary boards are saying. She's almost as stupid as Pelosi.

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!

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?

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.

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.

What exactly did Bush, Cheney and his “cronies” destroy?

Saddam Hussein’s regime of terror

The Taliban

Al Qaeda

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?

For starters, Babs is as dumb as a bag of rocks and twice as ugly, so such a statement from her is a real laugher.

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.

Elliott Gould:

"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 isn’t 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."
