Skip to comments.What Hillary Clinton Supporters are saying about Sarah Palin (Priceless)
Posted on 08/30/2008 7:37:34 AM PDT by littlehouse36
Many of our sisters on the left "get it". These comments are great and thought I'd pass them along. They begin around 11am on Friday, after the Barackopolis speech and before the Dayton rally. References to MO are for Michelle Obama. Comments about Michelle are interspersed with those about Sarah.
Im not crying anymore. ... Sorry to be catty, but did anyone else think that MOs dress was inappropriate for last nights event?
I am both thrilled for women in general and laughing my ass off at the STUPID DNC!!!
When the misogny starts (and it will) it will make me both happy and sad to see this womans OWN party STAND UP AND FUCKING DEFEND HER.
Obama is smoke and mirrors.
Palin, a mother of five with a son in Iraq, is a stone.
frankly MO should have worn a toga..it would have been more suitable for the occasion.
For someone (MO) that has a war room at her disposable, one would think, a fashion consultant would be warranted.
John McCain you just won my vote. Congrats.
This cant be anything but good news. He has chosen a woman and she will be there to run next time around for the top spot. I know we all wanted it to be Hillary, but that doesnt seen like that will happen, I think we can all honestly look at Sarah and see the stuff she is made of, then we can decide.
Text message from MCain to Obama:
U gt SERVD!
Oh, they are gonna attck her big time.
Slam them on their asses, Sarah!!
MSNBC will not attack her the way they savaged Hillary however. Why? Because the Republican party elevates women and defends women against mysogymism. That point needs to be driven home at every turn if Palin is the nominee.
The Dems are looking like the biggest idiots right now. They have been taken and thrown on the ground and stomped.
I fucking hope Palin stands up and LOUDLY THANKS HILLARY for making her run possible. I hope the GOP twists the knife, but good, into those fucking DNC spineless woman-haters.
I just got a look at MOs nomination night dress! (refused to tune in last night).
Is she fashion-challenged or what? She looked like a florists half-dead hospital arrangement assembled from Saturdays leftovers that the shop-owner was on the verge of tossing when a last-minute order came in.
OMG!!!!!! Im dnacing and crying and laughing all at the same time.
Nothing at all hip about her wardrobe. The dress she wore yesterday resembled something stored in the back of my grandmothers closet or a flower arrangement for a funeral! (IMHO)
Ive just seen the video of Palin out visiting the troops in Iraq, so big points there.
McCain is tacking fast back to his maverick roots.
I just LOVE clinging to my guns and my religion!!!!!
I LOVE HER ALREADY!!!
I was toying with the idea of getting a gun permit now that i live in the country and the sight of Palin nudged me that much closer.
And her hubby IS a hunk! Hes part eskimo.
Guys, I am crying. I know shes a Republican, but dammit there is a WOMAN on that stage, and I am bawling.
Holy Shit! Palin hubby is hot!
Look at Big Mac - hes so proud, hes ready to bust!
She is honoring Hillary BIGTIME now.
WOW, SHE IS GOOD BEYOND GOOD Bambi is sooooo f**ked.
She homored womens suffagists, HRC and Ferraro.
She paid respect to HRCs accomplishments.
I am thrilled with this ticket and i will vote McCain/Palin without a single regret.
McCain just won the Whitehouse. Palin was a briiliant pick. Middle america is going to love love love this woman.
Sorry, but thats the truth. I know voters.
I going to go to a Republican rally this will be my first time and now that the Democratic? Taliban Party jumped off the clift I can now campaign for McCain.
I love McCain/Palin ticket and she give a great speech, if fact better then Obama, who has to have his speeches written for him.
Obama is TOAST!!!
What a bitter young man and those he surround himself with.
Now this is the Republican party I like the reform ticket.
Remember, Martin Luther King jr. was a Republican he never became a Democrat!
Did everyone notice the crowd was shouting USA! USA!
At Obama rallies we get the Yes we can
The woman was DAMN GOOD. This was no token. McCain just won the Whitehouse.
I think the race is over. She said the good old boys network for Gods sake.
I think the US Media never expected McCain would have the balls to pick her.
Oh man is it wrong that Im starting to love Sarah?
I bet Hillary is smiling quietly to herself, thinking, well-played, Senator McCain you just made yourself the next President. And Hillary is so gracious and selfless that I bet that even though she strongly disagrees with Palins politics, she is glad to know that America can elect a woman to the vice presidency.
Palin just did what NONE of the Dem leadership could bring themselves to do. She honored Hillarys achievement in a very heartfelt way.
Spunky and self-confident. Shell handle Biden just fine.
Congratulations John McCain!!
You proved your wisdom and strength.
That Speech has blown me away, she sill bring in blue collar voters and women and union members in spades.
Rush just said the mention of Hillary and Geraldine was GENIUS! Rush says as the Drive-Bys try to destroy her, they will destroy themselves. Barry could have picked a woman but he didnt. So Joe loves to bloody noses, she knows about getting knocked down and middle America will love her. Rush says she is extremely confident and will inspire other women. Questions for Barry to ask herGovernor is hunting scary? Do you cut your finger on the hook when you fish?
It is giving me great personal joy that it will be a WOMAN who exacts the price for what the DNC did to Hillary. Palin will win this election for McCain, no doubt in my mind.
She is so articulate and a quick thinker; she appeared so natural and sincere when speaking.
thank you john mccain!
I am proud of you for once gain doing the RIGHT thing.
SHe is very articulate and is able to pump up the ticket!!
Let us NEVER forget what the DEmocrats did to Hillary and 2 days ago we all vowed to clean out the party and put it back on track and John McCain just made it a whole lot easier.
BTW, I loved that from a servants heart.
McCain found the one running mate who is human and so grounded, she has the all american family that has been missing here.
Her family is real, not plastic fabricated and that my friends is going to be what wins the WH for McCain. The woman is a real person, a real blue collar not like Biden. Shes a grafter. Shes a mother and a wife and a human.
If we have to give up the Supreme Court and abortion rights for some freakin R-E-S-P-E-C-T and crush the Democrats for their misogynistic stupidity, it might be worth it.
YES WE CAN vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin!!!
It will be a pleasure to vote for a Republican for President for the first time in my life.
I cant wait to wear a Palin t-shirt!!!!
Here we go again. Hillary has to iron his fucking shirts.
No ball for Cinderella, but get busy mending my ballgown, bitch!
amino is standard
and let them yell it from the rooftops because it only affirms that her convictions go to the bone. she has said that that little thing is perfection.
If you know your baby may not be what society deems as normal and you makethe decision to go to term. BRAVO. I think this aspectof who governor Palin is should be let go. It is about choice and she made a courageous one. Can we stop there.
When i look at Obama Biden, i see two lawyers.
When i look at McCain Palin, i see a soldier and a mother.
I must say she and McCain made me feel hopeful today after these last few months!
**** Gail Collins (NY Times) writes that Joe Biden may already be practicing his drop-dead line for the VP debate: I know Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton is a friend of mine, and governor, youre no Hillary Clinton. To which my response would be, plagurising again Senator. **** The Palins are going to become popular beyond belief, there is just something about them, it really reminds me of Bill and Hillary in 1992 only with gender reversal and a different party.

I spent a lot of time on this blog yesterday observing the reation to the women there. I was floored. I had no idea how angry the hardcore Hillary supporters have been. The selection of Gov. Palin will be more significant than the mainstream media (and the Obama camp) is willing to admit.
A LARGE number of Hillary supporters have transferred allegiance to Palin. Whoever advised McCain on this pick is a genius. I smell Rove behind this, the magnificent bastard
Palin is a grave threat to the Democrats. She is warm, articulate, attractive and a solid conservative. As spokeswoman for conservative/libertarian Republicans, she stands to attract a number of Dem women to our side.
I hope she's getting LOTS of Secret Service protection. The nutcases will particularly hate her
I didn't either. I was bracing myself for the liberal Mitt Romney. What a nice surprise!
Obama ‘Jumped The Shark’ when he picked Bieden. IMO
I think it’s hard to know if these comments are genuine or not.
So...curious minds want to know...what was MO wearing?! LOL
This is encouraging. As for myself, I still can’t pull the lever for McCain, but I can certainly pull it for Palin. I just ordered some Palin bumper stickers from her 2006 race that I will gladly put on my car.
I believe what they realize is she is sincere and they can depend on her.
What a concept. Just what we, man or woman, have been looking for regardless of party.
The best quote from above:
“When i look at Obama Biden, i see two lawyers.
When i look at McCain Palin, i see a soldier and a mother.”
“Big deal, if she is guilty of using her power against this scumbag who beat her sister, tased his stepson, was a drunk. MORE POWER TO HER!”
I’m a little clueless about this statement. Can anyone ‘splain it for me?
Set, Game, Match! McCain/Palin
“Did everyone notice the crowd was shouting USA! USA!
At Obama rallies we get the Yes we can
I’ll second that , “ USA”.
From a PUMA and Hillary supporter.
"Yet another reason why Hillary ought to have been the Democratic Nominee. Despite having 85,000 adults and children at the Barackopolis in Denver last night, John McCains selection of Sarah Palin this morning completely and totally knocked Obamas amaglamation of empty rhetoric speech from the front pages of all the major news sites this morning.
MSNBCs Headline was: McCain introduces Palin as running mate CNNs Headline was: McCain picks Palin for Vice President Fox News Headline was: McCain Picks Woman Gov of Alaska for VP Im sure you get the picture.
Sad as I am to say, experience does count. McCain has totally owned dominated the news cycle for the next 3 days, proving yet again that Obama is better suited for being a professor of speech at State U than a Presidential candidate for a major party.
Afterthought: Compare this with the disaster that was Obamas botched 3 AM announcement of Joe Biden as his running mate, and it becomes even clearer that Obama does not have what it takes to play in the big leagues."
Game, set, match.
Thanks for posting. Interesting/outstanding comments from Hillary supporters.
