Chgo Sun-Times: 'Sarah Palin Makes Me Sick' By Michael M. Bates Created 2008-09-13 12:43
"Palin should be laughingstock to all feminists"  is the title of Mary Mitchell's column in today's Chicago Sun-Times. In that calm, detached tone readers have come to expect, Mitchell begins:
Sarah Palin makes me sick. I hate that she was able to steal Barack Obama's mojo just by showing up wearing rimless glasses and a skirt.
I hate that she makes Joe Biden look like John McCain and John McCain look like the maverick he is not.
I hate that Palin reminds me of Susan Sarandon's feisty character in "Thelma & Louise." I loved Sarandon in that movie, yet I couldn't stand Palin's feistiness at the Republican National Convention.
Sarah Palin makes me sick -- not because she may speak in tongues -- but because she is a fast talker.
Not even ABC's Charlie Gibson can slow Palin's mouth.
There's yet another reason Mitchell's feeling nauseated:
Sarah Palin makes me sick because although black Democrats have been responsible for giving white candidates the boost they needed to beat their Republican opponents in tight races, these voters are now being insulted by feminists who say they will cross over into the McCain camp because of her.
So we know Mitchell's primary symptom, but what's the underlying cause? As it turns out, it's an all too common complaint among the many suffering from Palin Derangement Syndrome:
"Frankly, Sarah Palin scares me."
Don't feel lonely, Mary. It's going around these days.
Former New York mayor Ed Koch says of Palin , "She scares the hell out of me." Actor Matt Damon calls  the GOP vice presidential candidate "terrifying." New Republic editor Noam Scheiber writes :
The reason Palin scares me has more to do with mechanics than demographics: Palin is such a sensation, and draws such large crowds, that anything she says--particularly attacks on Obama--immediately become part of the campaign conversation.
"Rock matriarch" - I guess that's a nice way of putting it - Sharon Osbourne admits , "Im scared of that woman with the glasses and gun! Ugh!" And at a Web site that boasts "the latest in green gossip," we learn that singer Pink "is terrified of Sarah Palin, says she 'hates women.'"
The fear and terror engendered by Sarah Palin among Obamatons make Adrian Monk look like John Wayne. Then again, this could be an opportunity. Over at the official Barack Obama site, there's a group designated Pagans for Obama.  Perhaps the campaign could institute a group named Sissies for Obama.
Or would that be redundant?
Democrats are driven by hate. They hate everyone who is not like them.
Just who is out of touch? Palin with her sky high approval ratings, or the media/hollywood with all their foaming at the mouth hatred of her.
Dems - be afraid, be very afraid! LOL I’m lovin’ it!
Palin’s gonna make BO LOSE, and that’s what makes libs sick!
precisely why I have quit VS Planet (a musicians forum). I spent 12 years arguing with children. I’m done with it. These people are babies, and I’m totally series.
The dinosaurs were probably just as afraid before they became extinct.
Well, with any luck, Sarah Palin should be scaring liberals for at least the next eight years. And who knows what may come after that.
Personally, I’m excited!
*snort* The libs can’t stand her, because she truly represents what THEY say they’ve been supporting all these years; a strong woman who reaches her goals on her own. Just goes to show, all they’ve wanted was a LIBERAL woman.
“Sarah Palin makes me sick”
Translation: I hate America.
They’re afraid of her because she reminds them of that stern yet compelling teacher from the third grade.
lol....I’ve stumbled on sidewalk cracks smarter than Mary Mitchell.
Infantile writing, silly, pointless. Must be an affirmative action hire.
Read through some of these letters and see the ignorance of the liberal mind.
She is still twisting over THIS.
She makes a Sun-Times lackey sick?
I’d say that’s part of her charm!
Believe me, the main reasons they hate and fear Palin are:
- Her Christian Faith
- Her Pro-life stance (that she and her family have abided by!)
- Her Beauty
That last bullet might have thrown some of you, but I am here to tell you it is true.
Yes, they hate a lot more about her: NRA member, energy stance, etc.
A lawyer once told me years ago that when he had a female defendant in a case and it came to picking a jury, he always had to watch out.
If the defendant was average looking or ugly, female jurors would be sympathetic to his client.
If his client was good looking or pretty, then forget it. A majority of the female jury candidates HATED his client before she ever took the stand.
I asked my wife about this and she confirmed every word.
