Sen. Mikulski: Democratic women wear lipstick too
CNN Political Ticker. ^ | 9/19/08 | Alexander Marquardt

Posted on 09/19/2008 4:36:01 PM PDT by melt

STERLING, Virginia (CNN) – Firing up supporters at a women’s rally with Joe Biden in Virginia Friday, Sen. Barbara Mikulski told the crowd, “Democratic women, we wear lipstick too!” referring to Sarah Palin’s now-famous joke that the difference between a pitbull and a hockey mom is lipstick.

“You and I know that we women in America are mad as hell and we don’t want to take it anymore,” the spirited Maryland senator said. “I’m here today to say to you, we’ve got to get ready here, ok? Women, square your shoulders. Women, Democratic women, we wear lipstick too!”

“We don’t need another George Bush in earrings being the No. 2 spot,” Mikulski added.

Taking the stage, Biden thanked Mikulski, saying “They asked me could I handle Sarah Palin? I said, 'try debating Barbara Mikulski!'”

The Delaware senator focused his remarks on women's issues, saying that demographic is the most affected in an economic downturn.

“We're going to change that because here's the deal, we've got to restore both the protections and the dignity,” said Biden, “Because when the economy goes south, it's women who go, whether they're making minimum wage or working for a major corporation.”

It’s strange ... a stout, older lady can look pretty and sweet (with lipstick or not), if she’s a good person inside. A person who’s mean inside is going to look ugly, no matter what her facial features or grooming are like.

Whoa! Another nasty hit by one of the most repulsive creatures in Washington, Mikulski! She says Palin is “George Bush in earrings?” Will this idiocy never end?

The question I keep asking myself is why are the deranged Dems so upset about Palin? Especially the so-called female Dems. Let them worry about their OWN candidate. They had no plans to vote for ours anyway.

I conclude that it’s fear, envy, jealousy and resentment against Palin all rolled into one. There is something very wrong with these people and they need psychological help, now.

I suppose, if Helen Thomas showed up on my doorstep, I would have to offer her a glass of lemonade, a muffin, and a prayer card. But I’d wrap the snake around my shoulders first to keep her from getting too close!

On the other hand, that might give poor Susan a conniption!

said Biden, “Because when the economy goes south, it's women who go, whether they're making minimum wage or working for a major corporation.”

lol!!!!!!!

We hear this from Rush all the time when he talks about Liberals!

Bad Economic times, WOMEN AND MINORITIES HURT THE MOST!

“We're going to change that because here's the deal, we've got to restore both the protections and the dignity,”

Dignity? You, who along with your partner Obama and all your surrogates, have failed to protect and have destroyed the dignity of Bristol Palin, a girl, and who have slandered and attempted to debase every aspect of Governor Palin's very existence. YOU want to restore the protections and the dignity of women, Senator Biden? You are full of garbage. Keep your stupid minimum wage "dignity". It's cheap and meaningless when you act as you have toward a woman seeking high office.

Oh, yes. “Plain” can be the face you’re born with, but “ugly” comes from inside. For example, compare Laura Bush to any Democrat women.

It does make you wonder what their focus group testing was telling them when as a result they sent out the word to Democrats like these to get out and get in the faces of Republicans...

Dear Lord, who is writing this woman’s speeches.

The LAST thing she ought to be doing is talking about lipstick.

It’s like OJ saying, “Judge, being back in a courtroom is a real pain in the neck.”
