Wow...what a nitwit!

Oh. My. God.

This dame makes Dan Quayle look like Stephen Hawking. Does anyone believe that if Sarah Palin had testicles, she'd have been selected?

Sure...the 80% of the most vociferous Hillarions who are actually Republicans (*cough* Darrah Murphy *cough*) are going to be thrilled to vote for Sarah Palin for Vice President. But what about THINKING Hillarions? Are they going to vote for a woman who wants abortion to be outlawed -- criminalized -- in all cases? Are they going to vote for a woman who thinks creationism ought to be taught in schools? Are they going to vote for a corrupt hack simply because she has the right genitalia?

Howie Klein at Down With Tyranny, who is one of the must-read stops on this story, has the reaction of the right, and it seems that once you get past the John Hagees and the rest of the theocratic right, even the wingnuttiest of the wingnuts -- people like Jonah Goldberg and Ramesh Ponnuru, are appalled.

I think it's hilarious that the so-called "family values" crowd is so thrilled about a woman who's going to leave five kids, including a four-month-old Downs Syndrome infant, home so she can go around the country saying "Vice Preznitin' is fun!" You know that reality has been completely inverted when this crowd demonizes Michelle Obama and extols the virtues of Sarah Palin. I guess this is just another case of careerism being OK only for Republican women.

If I were Hillary Clinton, or even someone like Harriet Christian, I'd feel insulted that the McCain campaign thought this nitwit, who doesn't even know what the Vice President's job is, thinks creationism should be taught as science, and who wants to be a few brain cells away from the presidency; that this corrupt shtik dreck was some sort of Hillary-Equivalent, even though she, in a Phil Gramm moment last March, essentially called Hillary Clinton a "whiner". I could be wrong, but my understanding of the Hillarion viewpoint is that she is the stronger, more experienced candidate, not just that she has a uterus. If it were about the uterus, Obama could have chosen Kathleen Sibelius or Claire McCaskill or Janet Napolitano and the Hillarions would have been happy. But they made it clear it was Hillary or nobody. So it remains to be seen if a woman who believes Fred Flintstone rode a dinosaur to work will suffice for them.

Best Palin observation yet.

What an unbelievable choice. McCain clearly believes that it is all about the uterus. What an asshole he is. I wonder how long it will take him to call her a cunt?

Anyone else notice that while she spoke at her announcement ceremony, McCain spent the entire time staring at her breasts?
