Palin Paradox

I was just reading over at Newsweek online, how so many women are flocking to Sarah Palin despite the fact that her views differ from theirs.

WTF? Are people really buying her whole "I'm just a hockey-mom" shtick? So much that they are willing to elect McCain aka McSame over Barack Obama? When Samantha Bee on The Daily Show that she was a 'loyal Vagina American' it was funny, but I'm disturbed by the fact there are actually women are plan on voting for Palin soley because she's a woman. Totally dismissing her lack of substance and experience. What happens if McCain has a stroke, and she actually has to lead? A woman who a month ago didn't know what the VP did, but who now says that she didn't blink when McCain asked her to run?

On November 4, vote responsibly and not just because the VP is the same gender as you.

The whole thing makes me so sick. I just love this video. I so hope that women vote responsibly.

The Newsweek article made me kind of nauseous. I thought Samantha Bee was just joking about the whole 'vagina American' thing but I guess she was wrong. There are women out there taken in by her whole 'hockey mom' schtick.
