Sarah Palin horrifies Liberals ('Progressives' have a problem with a real American woman? Kewl.)

Sarah Palin horrifies Liberals

Washington, Sept.22: Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has probably seen it all politically in the three weeks since she accepted the Republican party's vice-presidential nomination.

Her public as well as her personal space has been invaded with out a by or leave, and she is turning out to be the most polarizing figure in American politics.

She may have won quite a few brownie points from the Conservatives, but the Democrats and the Liberals are leaving no stone unturned to expose her as a negative choice.

"She horrifies me because . . . I can't even talk. She's . . . she's just about every negative I can imagine in a candidate," the New York Daily News quoted a fuming Lisa Shannon, a left-leaning professional from Maryland, as saying.

However, Virginia hunter Scot Campbell describes Palin as "inspiring."

"I love her talking points. Even more, I love the whole package," he adds.

The enthusiasm on the right is there, but scratch a politically active opponent of Bush White House policies and fury erupts.

"Eva Peron reminds me a lot of why I'm so frightened of Sarah Palin," said author Naomi Wolf, referring to the woman who put a movie-star face on Argentina's autocratic regime in the 1940s.

"She was this glossy, telegenic figurehead for a police state," said Wolf, a former Al Gore campaign adviser.

Wolf sees Palin as an extension not of McCain but of the current White House.

"Look at the way she's styled - this blows my mind. Every senior woman in the Bush administration has been styled by the same hand. It's the same colors, it's the same palette, it's the same makeup," Wolf said.

"In the back of my mind she's smiling at my face and stabbing me in the back," said Hannah Suckle, an executive assistant from Manhattan.

Syracuse University culture watcher Bob Thompson said the reaction gets superheated when Palin critics, especially those steeped in women's issues - get called sexist by the GOP.

"She has the best of both worlds," said Celeste Youngblood, of Winchester, Va. referring to Palin's executive experience, conservative credentials and family life. "She has five kids. I have six. She walks the walk. She knows what I'm about. I am much more excited."

Then maybe it's a good time to shut up. (A leftist's gotta know his - or her - or it's limitations.)

I would be scared to death. (Anyone polling the "who has the best legs" vote?) Oh, my...

I figured out, ten years ago, that Feminists were not at all for women, they were just for Liberal politics. They gave Clinton pass because of his politics. No conscience in the NOW group.

They now have someone new to hate beside President Bush and all other white men. They have Sarah.

Hope all the white male freepers realize the shift in agendas. You might be able to breath easier for awhile.
If she gets into office, you might have 4 years of comparative freedom. They will be so busy skewering her they will leave you alone.

I remember how one high member of N.O.W. said during the Lewinsky scandal, that she herself would administer a specific sex act to Bill Clinton, in thanks for his good work in keeping abortion legal, and “women’s issues”.

I was speechless then and am still speechless that N.O.W. can be taken seriously after such comments.

It looks like to me, that these marxist pigs, can't cope when they come up against a real woman. They just stutter and stammer in frustration, because in the arena of ideas, their flimsy arguments and positions on the issues of today, just won't stand up. All that's left for them, like all other marxists when confronted with truth, is to indulge in personal attacks and name calling. It's definitely a sign of weakness on the left.

One of the better spectator sports in national politics is to see the heads of the smug, condescending Left exploding at the first contact with a genuine, unashamed American who isn't afraid of them. Ronald Reagan had that effect. It's pretty spectacular when it happens and they absolutely cannot help themselves.

But amusing as it is, there's something profoundly disturbing in the level of vituperation they direct at an individual that not a single one of them actually knows, based on three weeks' acquaintance only by media proxy. How on earth can one state "I hate everything about her" when that individual cannot know a single thing about her? These are not primary school children speaking about some new vegetable they've never tried, they're putative and self-appointed paragons of enlightenment propounding nonsense about another human being. Were they actually intelligent enough to be considered intellectuals they'd be embarrassed by it.

It isn't over anything that Sarah Palin actually is, it is an all-consuming hatred of what she represents, and what Sarah Palin represents to these people is the America they despise. I can think of no other explanation for this rabid, reflexive, inchoate hostility. It isn't healthy.

Leftists naturally hate. But an 86% approval rating is hard to beat despite how many lawyers RATS send to Alaska.

She's adored as an American doll. I'm more than on board.

I saw Naomi Wolf on Fox a few days ago.

I couldn’t believe the drivel coming out of her mouth. She is seriously delusional.

When a fox anchor dared to suggest that conservatives want the same good things as liberals, just had a different idea of how to achieve them, she basically said, oh no, republicans want to hurt women and people, that’s what they like to do.

I’d love to find the quote. I couldn’t believe anyone could put her on national TV as anything but a freak show.

Sarah Palin Derangement Syndrome is a psychiatric diagnosis characterized by paranoia and a pervasive, long-standing suspiciousness and generalized mistrust of strong independent women who own guns or who have not aborted most of their children and who identify themselves as Republicans. (DSM-IV) For a person to be considered having a Sarah Palin Derangement Syndrome , an enduring pattern of characteristic maladaptive behaviors, thinking and personality traits must be present from the onset of the time they first heard the words “Sarah Palin”. Additionally, these behaviors, traits and thinking must be present to the extent that they cause significant difficulties in relationships, employment and other facets of functioning.

Those with Sarah Palin Derangement Syndrome are hypersensitive, are easily slighted, and habitually relate to the world by vigilant scanning of the environment for clues or suggestions to validate their prejudicial ideas or biases. They tend to be guarded and suspicious and have quite constricted emotional lives. Their incapacity for meaningful emotional involvement and the general pattern of isolated withdrawal often lend a quality of schizoid isolation to their life experience. 

Differential diagnosis:

Though he's out of the news at the moment, I'd add Clarence Thomas to the list.

Just as the neo-nazis hate no one more than a "race traitor", the unhinged left despises no one more than a non-Marxist African-American or woman.

Sarah Palin Derangement Syndrome is a psychiatric diagnosis

It reminds me of P.E.S.T. - Post Election Stress Syndrome. Is it possible to have a Pre-Election Stress Syndrome? I assume so...

Makes sense...she's intelligent, rational, honest, principled, accomplished and independent...all traits liberals hate.

I’m not sure how this could be said any better than you did. A few word changes, perhaps, but this is a beautiful three paragraphs.

All this from the open minded tolerant diverse democrat party. Open mindedness is a sham. It actually means
just the opposite. It means that you dont agree with them you are close minded. There is no obligation of the left’s part to accept the right’s views. It is a one way sham.

Naomi Wolfe’s friends (she has some doesn’t she?) really and trully need to do an intervention on her. Her rants are all over the net...and soon, for her own safety, I think someone will toss a net over her. A Xanax script would do her wonders...
