Skip to comments.How Do The Hillary Fans Feel About Palin? ( Donation Thread underway )
Posted on 08/29/2008 7:28:40 PM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach
Interesting thread on the Hillary Clinton forum entitled:
Action Items: 1) Donate to McCain to affirm Palin pick; 2) Stay vigilant for all sexism against Palin
It gets better:
Donate to John McCain and Sarah Palin, and let them know you love this pick and are thrilled that McCain showed Palin the respect that Democrats, and Barack Youre likable enough Obama in particular, NEVER showed Hillary Clinton:
Show McCain, Palin and America that you support women in the executive branch!
There are already stunning, sexist attacks against Palin all over the kook blogosphere. Daily Kos is comparing her with Dan Quayle, implying that she is mere eye candy, likely kind of dim-witted, and totally disrespecting her and all women.
Palin was both a mayor and a governor of the largest state in America. And these pigs are just dismissing her as though she were some joke in glasses.
The only party thats dissed a high-profile woman recently is the Democratic Party. What they did both in rigging the system so Hillary could not win the nomination and what Obama did in utterly disrespecting Hillary by not even vetting her for the VP was unconscionable. A disgrace.
Today, we have a ticket that respects women as equals and recognizing their full worth.
Please, donate to that ticket today and show America that you appreciate this historical McCain/Palin combination, and that you want to help bring America its first-ever female Vice President.
The glass ceiling is cracking. Lets shatter it!
Comments on the thread pretty much show what many of us suspected. Obama made a huge, freakin HUGE mistake not even vetting Hillary. If Hillary had been chosen as the VP he would have become the next President but his arrogance and ego wouldnt let him.
And for that, I thank you Barack Obama:
I donated today, just a small $25. But Ill order somethings from his store as soon as Palin has been added. It wasnt as of 12:30 PM. Just waiting. It feels good to be excited about something worthwhile in this campaign again.
Dont forget to write a comment to McCain, letting him know how much you appreciate his choice. When I did, I also added that I was looking forward to buying McCain/Palin gear.
The John McCain site seems a bit swamped today!
I was going to leave the link, but I cannot get onto the webpage. When you do get on, look for the Contact Us button at the bottom and send him an email.
PS. I donated $100, just before the site got swamped.
JOHN MCCAIN HAS DEFENDED HILLARY ALL THE WAY
AND TODAY SARAH APPLAUDED GERALDENE
AND HILLARY GOOD GREAT
I DONT REMEMBER THE DNC DOING THAT SHAME ON THE DNC
Yes, we need to watch her back. Those sexist pigs in the MSM and the DNC will come after Palin.
the expected sexism is already started. The Obamalots are so stupid . cant they see that Palin is a bait ?. I think the McCain team expected all of this . The more the MSM talk about experience , the worse their sexism the worse the democrats look and finally the less they focus on McCain
Yes, its just a small slice of the Hillary fans and I understand the hardcore feminists will shy away from Palin because of her abortion views but those who are not so hardcore, who wanted Hillary to win, and are insulted by the way she was treated may very well come over to the McCain/Palin ticket.
Loving this choice ....a very impressive Veep Candidate.
For some reason ‘A woman scorned...’ comes to mind.
You go girls!!! Sisters of America unite!!! ;o)
LOL, I am loving this. I thought this election was going to be a real snooze with Hillary out, but I have been proven wrong!
They are so ticked at Obama they want blood!
Who has ever seen this sort of excited, passionate reaction to the selection of a VP nominee? Who ever heard of it being common for the new VP nominee to be compared to and contrasted with the other partys Presidential nominee? Its almost as though Palin were the nominee for President, and not VP!
Perhaps not as bad as may be expected.
In April of this year, Sarah Palin gave birth to her fifth child, Trig, who was born premature with Down Syndrome. Recent statistics show that in the U.S., approximately 90% of Down Syndrome diagnoses end with the mother choosing abortion. Palin on her familys reaction to the diagnosis, in her own words:
We knew through early testing he would face special challenges, and we feel privileged that God would entrust us with this gift and allow us unspeakable joy as he entered our lives. We have faith that every baby is created for good purpose and has potential to make this world a better place. We are truly blessed. (April 18, 2008, Anchorage Daily News)
(Sorry, I know I've been posting this on multiple threads, but this is the only chance. Strike while the iron is hot!)
I thank Barack Obama (assisted by DBM) for knocking out Clinton Inc. I'd like to shake his hand, pat him on the back and buy him a beer.
Hooray Sarah Palin! Thanks John McCain.
18 million cracks in the highest glass ceiling from the impact of Hillary’s face.
“Who has ever seen this sort of excited, passionate reaction to the selection of a VP nominee?”
I think this is the first time.
Anybody who doesn’t understand why, just needs to watch this video.
My wife is a good conservative woman who has been decidedly lukewarm about John McCain. She was, however, ecstatic this morning about Mrs Palin.
I stayed for NINETY MINUTES!!!!!...from page one-nine!!
To give you an idea of at LEAST 95% of what I read, I "borrowed" a few "comments and pics" from some of the posts:
...and the comment underneath the above pic said (paraphrasing, but quoting as close as I can here);
"Sarah Palin visiting troops in GERMANY...you know the ones Obama didn't have time for...:
Do as EATB says: Give Flopping Aces a click for much much more on today's pick.
IMHO, it's well worth the visit!!!
lmao.. I can picture it lmao
I should have said “Perhaps not as many as expected.” Hey, I’m not running for public office so....[SPLAT!] Hey! What’s with the rotten tomatoes?! [SPLORP!] Oooooph....
I am just waiting for the MSM to invade my quiet little town of Wasilla, I remember many years ago sharing a beer with her at the local bar.
He could have done a lot worse ,, and apparently did to one or two talking heads,, but the majority will see in the weeks ahead that she is more than up to the task.
I’ll take Hockey Mom over Hair Plug Guy anyday. ;-)
