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.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:

They prefer the Chicago-mob type who have domestic terrorists as their best friends. The media hate mongers are slitting their throats this time around. There’s no fooling the American people what slime they are. I wouldn’t spend a nickle on their trash nor will I watch any of the Liberal celebrities who spill their bile like like we care. I plan to boycott all these America-hating vermin.
Answer to Mster Bates of the Chgo Sun-Times.
get over it
Michael M. Bates makes me sick.
It`s been said that the only good Democrat is a BLANK one.
fill in the space? Former works, I can also think of many others.
THIS is what passes for political commentary over at the Sun-Times these days?
Dennis Prager has an interesting theory about drug use. He claims that during periods of drug use, a person stops developing emotionally because the drugs anesthetize the user from the emotional discomfort necessary for self-evaluation and personal growth.
If a person of a certain age has been using drugs since the age of twelve, he will still think like a twelve-year-old. Which explains the political views of musicians and other celebrities.
Democratic women hate..HATE...any woman that does not tow the line and HATE...HATE blacks who vote Republican period. They are considered Uncle Tom’s and traitors to their race.
I am still after all of these years...waiting to hear just what it is that the Democratic party has done for the black population.
Sarah Palin is like Kryptonite to the left wing nuts. Sarah is driving a one time main stream political party into melt down mode and it is more entertaining than I can hardly stand. John McCain is a genius.
” 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 learned 40 years ago to let men cut my hair. Ugly, liberal female hairdressers are the worst! They want ya to look like them!
Ah. The real rub. Governor Palin makes it harder for the old media to filter out Republican talking points.
Actually, I view this woman’s column as an honest one. That alone is refreshing. She is honest enough to admit she is scared of Palin. She is honest enough to admit she is unhappy that she feels her guy is not getting racial reciprosity.
Oh, sorry....Mary Mitchell makes me sick.
Your absolutely right. For all the talk and the claims of inclusivness and tolerance, the democrats are able to barely tolerate those who look a little different(and when they do they are very self congratulatory about it) but they hate, absolutely hate anyone who dares to think different.They will not tolerate diversity of thought.
Mitchell's columns have been posted here before. I don't know if her column that threw 'race' into Palin's attack on Obama was posted here or not.
To those not familiar, Mitchell makes weekly columns praising Obama and bashing anyone who doesn't support him. I knew Palin bashing was coming.
That was the best Editorial article I have read all morning!
Be afraid my little liberal friends.....be very afraid.
The longer Sarah Palin can withstand these attacks the better she does her job as attack dog and shield for McCain. I belive that the level has long been surpassed where anything the media and the Obama campaign does has any effect on her mass appeal.
The smarter pundits among the left have been saying it for over a week to leave Sarah alone and go after McCain - but pride and fear has compelled them to ingore that advice.
And to top it off, the last attack on McCain was his lack of computer expertise.....I’m waiting for the comeback McCain add to point out it was his war injuries that make working at a keyboard is painfull.
I dunno....will a ad campaign picking on a person’s war injury go over well? I didn’t think so.
I have a thought.....wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall at Obama’s latest campaign strategy meetings? I swear I can almost hear the Dean Screams from here :-P
The Dinosaurs went out with class.
They especially hate anyone who throws their crap back in their face. They’re all calling Palin’s speech at the RNC attacks, but all she did was tell the truth, which to a dimlib is like water to someone with rabies.
Dennis Prager has an interesting theory about drug use. He claims that during periods of drug use, a person stops developing emotionally because the drugs anesthetize the user from the emotional discomfort necessary for self-evaluation and personal growth. If a person of a certain age has been using drugs since the age of twelve, he will still think like a twelve-year-old. Which explains the political views of musicians and other celebrities.
and that is one of the reasons I love Dennis Prager. My brother in Michigan is a perfect example. He has the emotional age of a 7 year old (he is 54).. druggies are not able to postpone gratification. Of course it goes without saying that he is a hugh and series liberal.
I could never figure out why the left hated our President so much... he spent more money than any other president did.
My only conclusion was President Bush wears his faith on his sleeve and is pro-life... same as Sarah Palin
Put a nice head of hair on a stupid man, he’s still a stupid man.
Do you know what they are really afraid of, equality. They don’t want equality for everyone, just their elite anointed. It has nothing to do do with equality only ideology and their idealogy is Socialist/communist. They haven’t recovered from the fall of the the Berlin wall. They are in denial of the bankruptcy of Communism but they will follow the ideology over the ledge and take our country with them.
Does that “M” for his middle name stand for Master?
yeah yeah what Allegra said....I’m starting to beat all reporters lately
I noticed this on the American Idol message boards years ago - the better looking a female contestant was, the more they all hated her.
One year, Diana Degarmo was the object of all their hate - everyone calling her a pagent princess and so on. Then, during the show's run she put on weight and suddenly they all loved her.
I hate that she makes Joe Biden look like John McCain and John McCain look like the maverick he is not.
I think this says it all about as concisely as possible.
