Even Female Conservative Pundits Embrace Palin Bashing
Pajamas Media ^ | October 28, 2008 | Pam Meister

Posted on 10/28/2008 8:08:49 AM PDT by AJKauf

For a number of weeks now, conservative Beltway insiders Kathleen Parker and Peggy Noonan, among others, have narrowed their sights not on the Democratic candidate for president, but the Republican candidate’s running mate. Sarah Palin has brought out something in them that rivals the ‘80s sitcom Full House when it comes to the shudder factor.

Why beautiful, accomplished women like Parker and Noonan would join the MSM pile-on of the beautiful, accomplished woman from Alaska is, on its face, confusing.

But for anyone who knows anything about how DC works, maybe it’s not so confusing after all....

Apparently, their egos are more important than whether McCain or Obama is our next president.

Are women journalists playing to a stereotype by bashing Sarah Palin? Even conservative women journalists? Is this basically a “cat fight”?

I really hate to think that sometimes women’s biggest critics are other women, because that’s an ugly stereotype............

Peggy Noonan and Kathleen Parker are no Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter...both of whom love Palin.

I suspect there's something about Palin's lifestyle/beliefs/choices that convicts them.

God forbid McCain loses, but Sara can go back to Alaska and be as happy as she was before she ventured down to the lower 48. Parker and Noonan on the other hand are damaged for ever.

Parker and Noonan are green with envy because Sarah Palin is so much younger and prettier than they are, plus, as a Governor and VP candidate Sarah is clearly smarter and more successful than either of them could ever hope to be. No wonder they have their claws out.

Just continue to ignore them...

I think Peggy Noonan is still a beautiful woman, even though she is a bit older than the gals the guys on this site usually drool over.
I am VERY disappointed by the things these women have said about Palin.

Women can be vicious to other women. They are jealous that she didn’t rise through the ranks of the beltway chattering classes. But you see, that is precisely Palin’s VIRTUE.

Both of them are elitist Republican women. Palin doesn’t fit the mold, she’s an every women type, not part of the Washington crowd - it’s shameful that these two are doing this when so much is at stake.

Sara Palin is a threat to Washington. She is an outsider. She is not “The One”, she is “One of Us” and Washington along with its cohorts in the media DO NOT want us commoners gumming up the works...

I don’t know about those referenced in your post, but I do know that in general it takes a very secure woman to embrace Sarah Palin. The ‘mean girls’ competitive spirit among women often continues through old age. Those who don’t subscribe are in the minority.

I don’t think it’s anything that can be changed because it seems to be female nature.

There is a way of presenting the facts without being catty but everyone I’ve seen has to be catty - making such comments as “We have readers who want to know how to copy Sarah Palin’s hairstyle..well, it’s kind of a messy updo...”.

Messy. Honestly. I’ve never seen Sarah’s hair messy, not once.

Sarah’s a big hit in Ohio with her beautifully kept updo.

Hmph.

I think it comes down to check one thing: ABORTION.

I think these women are so over-ridden by guilt over their abortions. They resent the fact that she is so prolife that she even gave birth to a DS baby when so many of them “chose” to abort perfectly healthy children.

I suspect that Parker and Noonan are much more interested in being thought well of by the chattering class they care about the direction of this country. Peggy Noonan is especially disappointing, although she has been sliding towards disappointment for the past several years.

This is right on the money. And the contempt they exhibit toward Sarah Palin is the same contempt they extend to the rest of us. In her review of Christopher Buckley's book Supreme Courtship Kathleen Parker is stunned at Buckley's prescience in creating a main character who is nearly the mirror image of Sarah Palin and who is very popular with the people in the flyover. I don't recall the exact words she used to describe these people (us), but I'll bet she crinkled her nose as she wrote them.

Parker, Noonan, Buckley, etc. can have their place in the oligarchy, and they can also shove it where the sun don't shine.

Vichy Republcians...exactly, they are more then willing to back stab Governor Palin in the middle of a campaign, they are Collaborators with Obamao whether they will admit it, or not.

I sort of liked Peggy Noonan though, she had an interesting style of speaking, but alas...verbal head-shavings are in order for the Fmr Reagan Speech Writer....

But I do wonder what they'll have to say when Sarah Palin is elected Vice President. No doubt it will be an uncomfortable moment for them.

The article by Kathleen Parker attributing McCain’s selection of Palin to sexual attraction of her was way over the line. It diminished Parker much more than McCain or Palin.

I don’t consider either woman to be a conservative. They are cocktail-circuit Republicans.

They treat Governor Palin as if she wore white after Labor Day and probably view me as an uppity peasant who can’t tell a steak knife from a butter knife.

Sarah Palin: She's intelligent, she's conservative, she's beautiful, she's independent.

You can't just show up in D.C. and expect to be accepted. It's just not done. There's a process. Cocktail parties, hobnobbing, press parties. What's this Palin person thinking just showing up and not trying to make it with the "in" crowd?

Male and female Beltway types detest Sarah Palin because not only is she not "one of them", she's not interested in what they think. Sarah represents the majority of Americans; people who the D.C. insiders would just as soon avoid.

Female conservative pundits are not bashing Palin. Elitist, opportunists like Noonan and Parker, are bashing Palin. They are appealing to their audience, not conservatives.

Rabble-rousers depend on weak willed people to swell their ranks, best that they be identified. I think we are entering a period that will test the mettle of us all. We are seeing some of the results of this, others will follow. You may even see heroes emerge from strange places.

As a woman and a conservative, I can tell you I have no use for these women. If they can’t stand behind us they should get out of the way. I already cancelled my local paper after subscribing 15 years because of their Obama endorsement. I actually killed two birds with that one since they print Parker’s column.

“...Good bye Peggy, good bye Kathleen...”

Exactly. They want to pick our leaders. They have to pay a price for what they are doing. Regardless of how this election turns out, they have to be ostracized from the conservative movement once and for all. Stop buying and reading their books. Stop patronizing the online sites that publish them. Stop watching and listening to the shows and networks that give them face time. Boycott any advertiser that funds any of the aforementioned. If we don’t, these snakes are just going to keep doing what they are doing to us now.

I think that Sarah would remove a lot of the raw sewage that is stagnating throughout the swamp of Washington DC.

Throw these "old guard" democrats out, and make a fresh new start with patriots like Sarah.

I have never read Parker so she is no big deal to me. But I bought Peggy Noonan’s book “What I saw at the Revolution”. I paid money for it. I paid MY money for it.

To have the best conservative running for the Executive branch since Ronald Reagan stabbed in the back by Peggy Noonan THE BITCH is an act so traitorous I will never forget it or forgive it. Peggy Noonan can go to hell for all I care. I'm done with her.
