Michelle Obama: Don't Vote (for Sarah Palin) Because She's Cute
AP via WBT-AM ^ | Thursday, September 18, 2008

Posted on 09/18/2008 9:35:23 AM PDT by kristinn

Michelle Obama says voters need to decide this election by examining the issues, not because they like a candidate or think ``she's cute.''

Obama spoke in Charlotte on Thursday morning at a women's round-table on economic issues. The crowd roared at her remark disparaging voters who might cast a ballot because of a woman's looks, a clear jab at Republican vice presidential pick Sarah Palin.

Obama tried to clarify her remark with a smile, saying she was talking about herself.

Michelle Obama: Don't Vote (for Sarah Palin) Because She's Cute

She is?

Here's why I'm voting for her:

"When I became governor of Alaska, I put "Alaska's Checkbook" on line, so the taxpayers can see where their money is going, at any time."

I can see the future for DC... the biggest rat hysterical evacuation in history...
Followed, I hope, with the exodus of the dumbest Congress in history.

OK, but I won't let that stop me either...

Michelle, she's more than just a pretty face.

Michelle, wishing you were cute will not make it so, especially with your mouth.

I have know some extremely beautiful people. Some of them, are very ugly inside. It shows.

Some less than beautiful people, are gorgeous inside. No one notices the outside as much as the inside with them.

Sarah is beautiful inside and out.
Michelle, while she may be a fine looking woman, is a hateful harpie inside.

It shows.

Sometimes I wish McCain had married the exotic dancer that he used to date - Marie: The Flame of Florida. We could have had our own hard-edged hussy with a switchblade in her purse.

Be real. What about the issues? /sarc

What the Democrats continue to deny is that Republicans vote based on the issues while Democrats vote based on emotions and PC notions.

We don’t want higher taxes. We don’t kill babies. We don’t care what color your skin is. And we don’t want bigger government. We will vote for the candidate who is closest to our ideals, even though no candidate is perfect.

Did anyone watch that woman on with OReilly last night who had written a book something about Success-what to do and say etc to acheive success...she was trashing Palin’s hairdo! Did you see her hair? Like a really bad Farrah Fawcet look but straggily and thin and she’s trashing Palin’s hair!!

RE: “You ain’t cute so SIT DOWN AUNT ESTHER!!!”

Exactly. More than that, though, is the overall lack of appropriateness of The One and his family. Last night I watched the repeat of Barbara Walters’ royal family interview, all two hours of it. A significant segment related to the Queen’s visit to the U.S. a year or two ago, and luncheons/dinners at the White House with George and Laura Bush and dignitaries from around the world.

I thought about how gracious the Bushes were, and what a great job Laura did as hostess, so classy, so “appropriate” at all times.

The very idea of those south Chicago poseurs inhabiting the White House made me cringe. It just can’t happen — we can’t allow this pretender and his bitter nasty wife to reside in the White House, not now, not ever.

Don’t vote for Palin because she’s cute, vote for her because she’s better than the rest. Being cute is just bonus.

Obama said her husband, Democratic hopeful Barack Obama, is the only candidate to deal with women's issues. She particularly focused on equal pay, health care, affordable college and recruiting new teachers.

Sarah took the first question at the townhall meeting in Michigan last night. It was from a PUMA, who first gave a little speech about why she and many other Hillary supporters are switching to McCain/Palin. She wanted to know about women's empowerment and Sarah answered by talking about how she learned healthy completion, teamwork and winning from her high school days. All these questions were asked and answered by the team. See this thread and video:

Gov. Palin has joked that her favorite designer is Patagonia. Much to their horror.

I just love the sound of imploding "progressive" heads in the morning...

Is Patagonia still around?
The last time I was exposed to it, it was popular with the pre-teen crowd. This was, of course, long before "green" meant "clueless."

a LEFTIST women’s round-table on economic issues.

After all, what kind of an audience would the campaign send Michelle Obama out to speak to? She’s death in this campaign.

Sarah Palin is Brilliant. Educated. Sharp. A loving Wife. A loving mother. Was a Mayor and a Govenor. Can do many things and on top of it all she IS cute. That’s part of what is upsetting everyone. Beauty and Brains!

McCain/Palin!!!

The more they squeal about Palin, the more I know McCain picked the right one.

And the more they put her down, the more people start paying attention to her and probably end up getting the independants to like her.

My dear, beloved 70-ish ultra left uber-feminist mother in a recent chat needed to remind me that Governor Palin was once a “weather girl.”

I’m amazed how people will drop a lifetime of principle (that women should be referred to be terms that are respectful, not demeaning) to justify a political dig.

When I saw a rerun last night on Hannity, they told him he is sexy. And then they giggled like a bunch of school girls.

75% of Obama’s votes are because he’s black.

I think the percentage is higher, but for saying that he’d call us both racists. I really liked another reply, “what’s the reason for the other 25%?”

This Congress is NOT the dumbest but they are the biggest crooks in history. Thanks for the checkbook quote, I didn't know that. IF she did that to Congress, well, you said it, out on the street for some of them, to jail for the rest!

I’m a troll because I dislike that garbage that makes Free Republic look like bigots? I don’t like the race card being used anymore than the next person, but that is uncalled for IMO. And I’m entitled to that.

Pretty petty to pull out the troll bit everytime someone says something you disagree with.
