I confess, it was pretty riveting when John McCain trotted out Sarah Palin for the first time. Like many people, I thought, “Damn, a hyperconservative, fuckable, Type A, antiabortion, Christian Stepford wife in a ‘sexy librarian’ costume — as a vice president"...Is it OK to say such things, as long as the speaker is a woman?
But ideologically, she is their hardcore pornographic centerfold spread, revealing the ugliest underside of Republican ambitions — their insanely zealous and cynical drive to win power by any means necessary, even at the cost of actual leadership.
Sarah Palin is a bit comical, like one of those cutthroat Texas cheerleader stage moms....
As a woman who does not believe what Palin believes, the thought of such an opportunistic anti-female in the White House — in the Cheney chair, no less — is akin to ideological brain rape.
Clarence Thomas and Thomas Sowell and Condi Rice aren't "authentic" blacks because they don't toe a liberal line, and Sarah Palin will be subjected to every misogynist stereotype possible because she doesn't, either.
But don't judge them based on their race or sex.
Liberals are the biggest hypocrites of all.
