Payback Time: Why Right-Wing Men Rush to Palin's Defense
Its nothing new when liberal women complain about sexism, but when conservative men take up the banner, calling NEWSWEEK sexist for portraying Sarah Palin on the cover in her jogging clothes, that catches my attention. Why do right-wing men rush to Sarahs side to defend her? My theory is that this is payback time. Theyve been called sexist and racist, and subjected to media ridicule of their allegedly retro views. Palin is their way to push back against the elites that have marginalized them.
For the record, I loved Palins interview with Runners World, and the cover image that graces NEWSWEEK. Shes in great shape, and shes shown herself capable of handling whatever comes her way─and making a tidy profit in the process. Shes turned media criticism into a cash cow. Anybody who can stir up the body politic like Palin is a force to be reckoned with. With such Christian-right leaders as Jerry Falwell gone and the Reverend Dobson retired, Palin is the new kingmaker. She may not run for national office again, but those who do will seek her endorsement as the key to mobilizing the populist energy emerging on the right.

I thought she was dead?
Eleanor Clift is a bottom feeder.
I remember when I saw her on TV last, debating the Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson.
She called what he had to say “hate speech”.
She makes me vomit.
Right wing men do NOT call ANYONE sexist, Eleanor Crotch!
Eleanor, the bigger question you should ask yourself is why have people stopped reading Newsweek or taking it seriously? I think the two issues are related. But I’m just sayin’...
You really should have added
to the headline.
Love how they relate right wing men with Jerry Falwell and Reverend Dobson.
These leftist morons really REALLY have no clue, do they?
She did but came back to life-death warmed over.
I never thought I’d read or hear anything this Grinch faced hag wrote, said, or otherwise excreted out of her piehole.
However she, in three words in this article, gave me my motto for the next few years.
IT’S PAYBACK TIME!
and, true to form, it has nothing to do with Newsweak covers or jogging clothes.
but, I digress—once again:
IT’S PAYBACK TIME!
Hey all ou young moms going to your sons and daughters T-Ball games in shorts! Bewarte! The DemoPervert ‘’Morality Police’ of Time and newsweek will be out to get you! How dare you go out in public in shorts, if you aren’t a homosexual or a lesbian?? You shameless Hussies! /sarcasm
Do these Newsweek degenerate and perverts, have any clue at wht imbeciles they are pointing out themselves to be?
“The GOP are Stalinists!”
“Obama is the best author since Ceaser!”
“Obama is smarter than everyone else!”
The real question is not why conservative men recognize the sexism in using a leggy jogging photo to discredit an attractive female politician ...
... the real question is why liberal (so-called) “feminists” — who make their living finding sexism even where it doesn’t exist — amazingly don’t see any sexism in this.
Theres a good liberal, Eleanor. Talk about anything but the policies Palin represents.
My God in heaven, Clift and her ilk are so clueless. The arrogant, solipsistic elites. Their willfull ignorance is their fatal blindness. Oh, Lordy, are they ever going to pay.
All we have to do to enforce “payback time” is to embolden every conservative politician to boldly speak the truth as Sarah does.
The left cannot stand the light of truth being shown on their ideology, and doing so ensures their defeat.
Expose the Left = Defeat the Left
According to the running magazine’s editor. There was a one year embargo on the photos and Newsweek ran it without permission. Why didn’t they use the one of her holding Trig? Because it wouldn’t suggest she’s a Bimbo.
I’m not surprised by anything the left does to attack her,
she probably isn’t either.
I love right wing men. They’re real men!
The left is obsessed with Sarah Palin, aren’t they?
