Posted on 09/02/2008 4:22:49 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
Your humble correspondent is thinking of writing a story about Democrat voters who are insulted by vice-presidential nominee, Joe Biden. And I think I know just the place to find such Democrat voters---at a John McCain rally in Ohio. Just to save time and effort, I'm not even going to find out if the people I interview are even Democrats so I won't specifically identify them as such even though the headline for my story will read, "Joe Biden excites, insults swing-state Democrat voters."
Does that sound ridiculous to you? Well, guess what? That is exactly what New York Daily News staff writers, Michael McCauliff and Celeste Katz, did in reverse with their article, "Sarah Palin excites, insults swing-state Republican voters." I guess the crack investigative team of McCauliff and Katz figured that the best place to find Republican voters would be at an Obama rally (emphasis mine):
But Palin didn't impress voters who spoke to the Daily News at a Barack Obama rally in Ohio, perhaps the most critical swing state of all. "I think McCain is using it as a ploy to sway Hillary voters, but Palin is entirely against everything Hillary stands for, and I think women will find it offensive," said Emily Miller, 25, of Toledo. "It will backfire."
Debra Esthmeyer, 28, of New Knoxville, Ohio, said, "I'm insulted, as a woman. If Sarah Palin were a man with her same credentials, there is no way John McCain would have picked her." Palin's "no Condoleezza Rice. She's no Hillary Clinton," Esthmeyer said. "She's no Michelle Obama, either."

Heck, if I wanted to interview Republican voters, an Obama rally is the first place I’d look.
I guess journalism school is where students go who can’t cut it as an education major, eh?
the amount of energy that the media is dedicating to trying to destroy Palin, reveals to me just how afraid they are of her effect on the campaign
McCauliff and Katz should have just ran with some Daily Kos posts like the rest of the commie DBM does...
or a sociology major?
.” Palin’s “no Condoleezza Rice. She’s no Hillary Clinton,” Esthmeyer said. “She’s no Michelle Obama, either.”
Well, thank Heaven for that!
People were wide-eyed about McCain picking Jindal.Palin’s credentials are at least as strong as, if not stronger than, Jindal’s at this stage of the game. She’s been governor longer and has accomplished quite a bit in that time. She also had previous executive skills.
NY Daily News Finds ‘Republican Voters’ Critical of Palin...at Obama Rally
I love the smell of desperation and despair in the morning..............
If Obama was a white man with his same credentials, would he be the Democrat nominee?
For a VP, Palin has sufficient credentials. Obama's credentials are worse, and he's running for the top spot.
NY Daily News Finds ‘Jews’ Critical of Israel...at Iran Rally
Be careful with that. Sarah Palin majored in journalism. Actually, those journalists should be happy and support her. She probably will be the first Vice President who majored in journalism.
“Debra Esthmeyer, 28, of New Knoxville, Ohio, said, “I’m insulted, as a woman. If Sarah Palin were a man with her same credentials, there is no way John McCain would have picked her.” Palin’s “no Condoleezza Rice. She’s no Hillary Clinton,” Esthmeyer said. “She’s no Michelle Obama, either.” “
and if hussien obama was a white guy named harry berg he would’ve been out of the rats-race by mid-Feb....
Replace the word woman with the word black, or African American and isn't this EXACTLY what Geraldine Ferraro said that got her labeled a racist?
You know what else, she’s no Madeleine Albright, Barbara Boxer or Nancy Pelosi either. Poor thing.
