Sarah Palin: Libs Hate Her Because She's Beautiful, Not Like That Michelle Obama
The Houston Press ^ | 6/23/10

Posted on 06/23/2010 8:50:59 AM PDT by llevrok

Texas Tech, that bastion of Americanism way out there in Lubbock, has done it again.

This time they're not protesting a statue that allegedly features Commies and lesbians, nor are they linking tattoos to social deviance.

This time, they're saying liberals hate Sarah Palin because she's beautiful, and libs prefer dogs like Eleanor Roosevelt, Hillary Clinton and Elena Kagan. Well, at least one Red Raider is.

A.W.R. Hawkins writes an online column for the conservative Human Events and proudly lists in his bio that he has a Ph.D. in military history from Tech. Which makes him an expert on dames, apparently.

Libs and Dems hate Sarah Palin because she's for smaller government, he writes in his latest column; they hate her because she didn't go to an Ivy League school and they hate her because "she chose to carry her Down Syndrome baby to term instead of aborting it. (That last one really drives them crazy.)"

But what really sets these abortion-loving atheists off? "[A]ll these reasons are trumped by the fact that they despise her beauty," he writes.

As a member of the media, we supposedly knew this already:

The double standard resides here: When Palin dresses in nice clothes reporters act like she's being ostentatious, but when Mrs. Obama does it reporters are taken aback by her glamour. Yet the dirty little secret is that Palin could don a $90.00 dress from Wal-Mart and steal the show from a diamond covered Mrs. Obama any day, and the media knows it. Got it. The analysis goes even deeper, hard as it may be to believe:

[T]he left criticizes that which they fear. We also have to keep in mind the fact that all the names they throw at Palin are really code words for "Dang, that woman looks good."

And who can blame them for noticing? After all, since the 1930s they've spent their time supporting women who looked like Eleanor Roosevelt, Hillary Clinton, Janet Reno, Tipper Gore, and Elena Kagan.

Suffice it to say there isn't a lot of pinup potential in that list. Texas Tech represent!!! No fatties allowed!

Michelle could be better looking if she’d lose the attitude.

Going around with an 800 lb. chip on your shoulder doesn’t improve your looks!

I have noticed that the left has gone after anyone on the right who is attractive. They went crazy attacking Dan Quayle.

I've seen saying this for almost 2 years. Women especially are jealous of her because he's hot, plain and simple.

I know otherwise rational women who hate her. Why? They don't come out and say it, but it's obvious.

Beautiful yes.

But also talented and courageous.

But much more apropos: The greatest potential catalyst to awaken real Americans, and bring the Left’s Commie dreams for America crashing down to destruction.

She scares the crap out of them. You can even see it here on FR.

He needs to add to his list the facts that Sarah Palin has common sense (and knows how to use it), works hard, and has a proven track record.

The Houston Press has sex escort ads and strip club ads to pad out the “back pages” and bring in the weekly revenue.

They are a traditional left wing free “alternative” weekly publication. Republicans can do no right in their eyes.

This one is published by Village Voice media.

Michelle hasn’t made a public appearance in days — actually more than a week. Rumor is that she had “work” during the California trip and will emerge with obvious “improvements”.

Misleading title.

Colon is used generally to denote a speaker.

This title implies that Sarah said this.

The article essentially attributes it to all of Texas Tech.

Not at all true on either account.

It’s one guy’s post. Mountain meet molehill.

They hate her because she is successful. They have convinced themselves that she has been successful because of her looks. Lord knows that it couldn’t be for her ideas...

Just serving it back to the Pravda Press which trots out such naked lies like this every day.

Counter their fraudulent claims. Did you see the “representative” photo they chose to champion MO with?

Looks shooped!

Could it be what Sarah says and stands for, and the lefts knee-jerk reaction to anyone and anything decent, rather than her looks?
Michele and what she looks like is a non-issue in my opinion.

They hate her because she poses a threat to the establishment’s selected One.

When Hillary opposed Barack (before joining his cabinet), even Bill Clinton commented on the Chicago thug tactics that the Obama team was using against Hillary Clinton.

The Left who’d held their tongues silent for 18 long years on the Clintons finally called her a “b****” for staying in the race. The media covered up the John Edwards affair (and Mark Halperin defends that decision while also defending his decision to report on the rumors of John McCain affair) to keep Hillary in a three way race for delegates.

When Hillary was out of the race and Sarah Palin was in it, they went from calling the female candidate the b**** word to using the c*** word.

It’s not about looks. It’s not about politics (Obamacare is Hillarycare). It is about the challenge to The One’s golden child status.

It does look photoshopped, but I don't care how unattractive the president's wife is. Her husband is destroying the nation, and I think we should pass on acting like liberals and keep our eyes on what her husband is doing. That's my opinion...obviously, mileage will vary.

...she NEVER referred to me or mine as “g****mned whities.”

I’d only forgive Raquel or Kate Bekinsale that sort of insult.

She has a lot of influence on his ideology, attitude, and decisions. Of course, this isn’t affected by how she looks, except for avoidance of that death glare that she’s so famous for.

Then go after her for policies, although as he's the one that would implement them it's still better to go directly at him and his staff, imo.

I agree with you. I really do. There have been plenty of not-so-good-looking first ladies, and their natural physical attributes should not matter one whit. Character trumps looks, period.

However, if indeed Michelle is again going under the knife, that in itself is shallow enough to merit comment.

As first spouse, she has responsibilities, including demonstrating class and grace in public appearances. That is not about looks, but it is about good judgement in what she says and wears.

(I’m also tired of paying for her regular “vacations.”)
