Skip to comments.Something About Sarah (Delusional Traitor Parker compares Sara Palin to Monica Lewinsky!)

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.

I am beginning to think with these B&o@d$ it’s all about “Todd Envy” Sarah has it all and it gauls them........
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 you ignorant slut.
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.
I dunno... they dumped Ann Coulter quickly enough after her 9/11 column.
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.
Nic to hear from the GOP’s Vichy Brigades.
Now THAT bore repeating..... so I did.
Everyone should cancel subscriptions to newspapers running her column.
She made a fool of herself in the days before the VP debate and rather than suck it up she just talks crazier and crazier. Until this election cycle I had never even heard of the woman.
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.
Bumper sticker idea:
“Our goddess can kick your messiah’s ass”
No...Really? Perhaps that explains why the demographic group with the fewest speeding tickets are blondes with big boobs.
This is Maureen Dowd cattiness regurgitated like slimy little furballs.
My offer is on the table: a bottle of Jack Daniel’s and a good cheesecake to any journalist who will ask a woman railing about Palin, “How many abortions have you had, Kathleen? And when was the most recent one?”
Maureen is a much more fun writer than this hack. And her articles attract stuning pictures of Catherine Zeta-Jones, one of nature’s wonders.
