Something About Sarah (Delusional Traitor Parker compares Sara Palin to Monica Lewinsky!)
The Washington Post ^ | October 24, 2008 | Kathleen Parker

Posted on 10/24/2008 6:46:44 AM PDT by Lucius Cornelius Sulla

My husband called it first. Then, a brilliant 75-year-old scholar and raconteur confessed to me over wine: "I'm sexually attracted to her. I don't care that she knows nothing."

Finally, writer Robert Draper closed the file on the Sarah Palin mystery with a devastating article in this Sunday's New York Times Magazine: "The Making (and Remaking) of McCain."

McCain didn't know her. He didn't vet her. His campaign team had barely an impression.

. . . . .

As my husband observed early on, McCain the mortal couldn't mind having an attractive woman all but singing arias to his greatness. Cameras frequently capture McCain beaming like a gold-starred schoolboy while Palin tells crowds that he is "exactly the kind of man I want as commander in chief." This, notes Draper, "seemed to confer not only valor but virility on a 72-year-old politician who only weeks ago barely registered with the party faithful."

It is entirely possible that no one could have beaten the political force known as Barack Obama -- under any circumstances. And though it isn't over yet, it seems clear that McCain made a tragic, if familiar, error under that sycamore tree. Will he join the pantheon of men who, intoxicated by a woman's power, made the wrong call?

Had Antony not fallen for Cleopatra, Octavian might not have captured the Roman Empire. Had Bill resisted Monica, Al Gore may have become president, and Hillary might be today's Democratic nominee.

If McCain, rightful heir to the presidency, loses to Obama, history undoubtedly will note that he was defeated at least in part by his own besotted impulse to discount the future. If he wins, he must be credited with having correctly calculated nature's power to befuddle.

This is Parker's most loony column yet. To read it is to Barf. Everyone that picks up Parker's column has it or references it. Kathryn Lopez apologizes for the NRO reference, saying: 'Because I know some of you are understandably and sensibly wondering WHY?: We're running our roster of syndicated columns through the election. Period. So that's why we published one today that is embarrassing and outrageous.'

Would her husband (assuming there is one) please tell her she’s a babe or give her some kind of attention, so she can move on and get over the jealousy??? Sheesh!

Kathleen Parker has become Maureen Dowd (only with a husband....for now, anyway). There is nothing more pathetic than a jealous woman with the emotional maturity of a middle school JV cheerleader.

Egad. And to think she once seemed reasonably normal, though not conservative, particularly. No surprise that her husband’s a gnoofball, too ... after all, he married her.

And doesn’t “brilliant 75-year-old raconteur” translate as, “Pretentious old drunk who won’t shut up”?

Kathleen and Peggy have sold their soul to stay in the DC cocktail circuit which shows that they never were about political principle but political style.

She has an outrageous viewpoint, that’s for sure. What does it say about her opinion of women that we LIKE Sarah and want to see her elected with McCain? Has it occurred to her that we might possibly care about the issues and we might actually care more about substance than style? Apparently not.

I think the fact that Sarah Palin went ahead and had her fifth child, knowing it was a Down's Syndrome baby and not terminating the pregnancy, is such a slap-in-the-face to many of these modern women that they cannot forgive her.

Kathleen must be auditioning to be the National Review version of Maureen Dowd. Jealous, angst-filled, adult woman with the emotional stability of a jilted schoolgirl. She really and truly hates Sarah. If McCain wins this election, Kathleen’s likely to self-mutilate. If I were one of her loved ones, I’d hide all the razor blades.

That men are at a disadvantage when attractive women are present is a fact upon which women have banked for centuries.

No...Really? Perhaps that explains why the demographic group with the fewest speeding tickets are blondes with big boobs.

The really strange thing that occurs to me is this. With no vetting that this Parker broad wants to admit to, our Vice-Presidential nominee still has more executive experience, more global understanding, and more innate intelligence than Barack Obama does.

Where’s Parker’s complaints about the vetting that obviously didn’t take place with him?

I don't understand Kathleen. I really don't. First of all, we know how she feels as she has verbally told us many times over...she is not keen on Governor Palin. Fine. I have no problem with her not liking her for whatever reason. She should state her case ONE TIME and let it go. Article after article and interview after interview is not logical. The reason I say that I have no problem with her not liking Governor Palin is because if I had my druthers, I would rather have another candidate than McCain, but I complained about McCain for the first few days on this website and then finally accepted that he is is our candidate, get over it. She, for some reason can't “get over it” or “suck it up” or whatever phrase she needs to get her through this election...Kathleen...just do it and vote for McCain. I am voting for Governor Palin not President McCain like many on FR is doing...she can do the same thing...vote for McCain and not Palin. Her gnashing of teeth daily is doing a lot of damage to her reputation and after this election she may not even be able to write another article because nobody will want to read her stuff. She really needs to step back and analyze herself and get out to vote McCain.

As for not vetting Palin, Ms (B)arker, She’s a GOVERNOR you dunce. You don’t think anybody ever heard of her? Of that’s right, you think Alaska is some frontier wild west tundra were everyone chews blubber and are stupid. GFY.

You could be right. The left is probably tired of her already: an ageing, not real attractive woman who’s gone shrieking bats isn’t going to win Obama any votes. And a woman who isn’t ornamental AND who won’t shut up is no fun at cocktail parties.

On the contrary, K. Parker has transformed herself into that most valuable media commodity, someone who can pretend to be a “disillusioned conservative” — she will be paraded across talk shows for years if she plays it right and parlays this momentary celebrity for attack Governor Palin into a more lasting career attacking all sorts of conservatives.

She will have lucrative media offers and plenty of opportunities, don’t worry about her. The rewards for betrayal are high when we’re talking about someone so useful to the left.

Wonder what her hubby really had to say that sent Katie offfff the edge? Funny how she took the words of a wine induced 75 year old (even if she sees him to be brilliant) as foundation for writing a vanity against McCain.

Poor Ms. Parker got herself left out in the cold and none of those glass slippers fit her feet anymore. I would love to see pictures of the event she describes when her brilliant scholar turn his back on her.

For all her vapid, unjustified attacks on Sarah, Parker summarizes her true loathing in the first sentence: men are sexually attracted to Sarah Palin.

I don't care how strong a woman is, when a man notices another woman as attractive, most women fall into the reptilian part of their brain and go on full attack. It isn't about what she thinks, her experience, etc. Its simply the fact that other men find Sarah sexually attractive, and the oh so familiar, 'why not me?' issue. It doesn't matter how much in common their base, core philosophy is. It doesn't matter how much in common their ideology is. And it doesn't matter how much in common their politics may be. Because when you can't attack those things, you go after the person- the gender, and most certainly, the attractiveness.

It is jealousy in its most raw, primal form. And its too bad that 'sisterhood' ends up taking a back seat to sexual jealousy.

“She knows NOTHING?”

A 75 year old dirty old man says Sarah knows nothing. Kathleen say he's brilliant. For him to make that statement proves he's also senile.

“My husband called it first.”

Kathleen, better keep an eye on your husband. With your looks, lack of brains, and obvious jealousy of Sarah, he's probably desperate for some time out of the house.

The best part of this election season, besides the idiot Biden, is the idiocy of the elitist snobs who are jealous of Sarah because deep down inside they know they have little to offer compared to her. As Ivy League engineers and mathematicians frequently joke: “If you have an Ivy League degree in journalism or business, may we suggest you use it as toilet paper.”

This is the same BS that career women have been dealing with for decades. You get ahead, it is because of your looks. You tone down your looks to avoid criticism, you’re “too manish” (or plain, dyke, etc...)

And the criticism comes from other women, not men.

It’s my experience men now accpet women in the workplace at face value, and just don’t worry about this other BS. It’s women that snipe at them about their looks.

She’s been around for a while. From So. Carolina, I think. Used to be syndicated mostly down South.

10 years ago or so, she wasn’t bad—quite good from time to time. A social conservative, pretty much. I’m not kidding.

Since them she’s gone wider in syndication and appears on some Sun. AM talk shows. I don’t follow her closely, but see her here and there. A year or two ago, I noticed that she seemed very different-kind of weird, and her views were really out there.

Now, I can’t believe her. Does she have a brain tumor or something?
