Liberal Women Already Trying to Destroy Conservative Sarah Palin

Stefanie Pomponi Butler at MOMocrats, a Daily Kos site for Leftist moms, refuses to consider Sarah Palin a legitimate candidate because she's a conservative, pro-life woman who didn't get to where she is on her husband's coattails. Her attitude toward Governor Palin is far more sexist and far more condescending than Obama's and the Obamamedia's attitude toward Hillary. Some women can be so catty. A portion:

Note, I said running mate, because Vice President? I don't think so. In fact, a month ago, Palin was dissing the VP job. And not in the "Don't pick me (PICK ME!)" way. As in the "I don't know what a VP does" way.

Sarah Palin, you and I see eye-to-eye on practically nothing. You are a woman, a mother, a working mother, your job(s) are hard. I know this, but, I feel a little bit sorry for you. You've allowed yourself to be a pawn in the Republicans' game and yet you seem like a smart person. You were chosen to pander to Hillary Clinton supporters. Let's not pussyfoot around that. You addressed those 18 million voters in your speech today. Palin, McCain, we see right through your scheme. Hillary Clinton supporters who would vote for McCain simply because he chose a female running mate don't support the issues and core values that Hillary Clinton stands for. We know that, Hillary Clinton knows that, and McCain, you best believe that that's the truth...

Trying to build up your glaring lack of experience into a curriculum vitae that comes close to Biden or Obama in 60+ days until the election? That's going to be a tall order, but I'll be watching.

That's one sorry display of ignorance. Governor Palin has far more experience than Obama. She's got executive experience. She's met a budget. She's taken on corruption and defeated it. She's got vast knowledge of energy, which is a very important national security issue. Your issue with her is that's pro-life, and since you require your women to bow down at the altar of abortion, she's just not good enough for you.

Then Stefania continues:

When McCain goes down, and go down he will, he will say, "But at least I picked a woman." That may seem like a positive but it isn't. You'll be a scapegoat. The fall girl, if you will. And then it's back to moose burgers and ice fishing for you.

Stay catty classy, MOMocrats.

Update: CNN's host asks that if Palin will neglect her special needs child by running for Vice President. No he didn't use those exact words, but his meaning was clear. So CNN is still stuck in the 1950's I see. Hat tip: Hot Air. (I reworded the first sentence of this paragraph because it sucked.)

Lorie adds: Palin responds to critcs -- while shopping!

Hi Kim,

Gender has nothing to do with my criticism of Palin's qualifications. I didn't mention her pro-life stance so please do not put words into my mouth.

You do a great disservice to women by couching any criticism of Palin by a woman as "catty." If you took the time to read MOMocrats you will see that we've been critical of many candidates and many issues. This is the first time my critical analysis has been called "catty."

She is not a qualified CANDIDATE regardless of gender, and worse, because she IS a woman she is being used by the Republicans to appeal to the 18 million women who voted for Hillary Clinton. I am offended that John McCain has such little regard for the intellect and judgment of women. As I said it my post, we are better than that.

There, that sums YOUR candidate.

I am sooo sick of the thought process that if you are pro-life, pro-family with a mom and a dad, then you are not smart. You are right on one thing she was brought in part to try to get some of the Hilary supporters but more than that she was she was brought in to bring in the conservative base. I am part of that and up until today I was one of those republicans that was going to hold their nose and vote for McCain. Today I have hope...if he is smart enough to pick Gov. Palin then there is hope. She is the best example of that you can be anything you want to be for my teenage girl.

"It will be fun to see Biden wipe the floor with her supposed "experience". Maybe making pies and cookies."

How many Vice Presidential debates do you remember? THey usually only have one per election vs the (usually) 3 for President.

Personally I think she will hold her own against Biden. Just because she is a relative unknown to a lot of people doesnt mean that she isnt smart and doesnt know how to answer questions.

Looking at the McCain Obama debate I think Obama is in trouble unless of course he gets the questions beforehand from the mainstream media (*Gasp* say that it aint so). Regardless he has trouble without a teleprompter and given the fact that he seems (at least to me) to change his views depending upon his audience vs standing on one set of beliefs I think that any gaffs which Palin may have in the VP debate will be vastly overshadowed by the "above my paygrade" answers from Obama.

Strange how the women libbers throw yet another woman under the bus because they are republicans.

If McCain had picked Condi Rice than you would have said she was picked because of her color. She can easily wipe the floor with Biden as she did during numerous Senate grillings. BUt that wouldnt have mattered the only thing the dmes would have seen is her color.

3. Ahh, it's the fact that she's against killing babies that's upset you, huh? Awww. Maybe if people would use their brains to think rather than their genitals, they'd use birth control to start with. Nah, much more fun to kill the unborn. That way the baby has no rights, nor do the men who father those children. Must keep the feminazis happy!

This is actually, in fairness, probably a true statement:

"Hillary Clinton supporters who would vote for McCain simply because he chose a female running mate don't support the issues and core values that Hillary Clinton stands for."

However, Pomponi ignores the fact is a lot of Hillary supporters DIDN'T support the issues and core values Hillary stood for, and by her own admission those voters (a bigger block Pomponi thinks) could be ripe for the picking.

How Insulting

If John McCain was truly interested in picking a woman who has leadership qualities, experience and a track record that extends farther back than 21 months, here is a list that he should have considered.

What the choice of Sarah Palin shows is that McCain is comfortable with women only if they don't match his skill level or experience. Apparently, instead of choosing someone who could be a real partner, a qualified leader, McCain only wants a prop.

So, who could he have chosen instead?

Kay Bailey Hutchinson - Senator from Texas
Olene Walker - Governor of Utah
Elizabeth Dole - Senator from North Carolina and Former Secretary of Transportation and Labor
Olympia Snowe - Senator from Maine
Susan Collins - Senator from Maine
Lisa Murkowski - Senator from Alaska
Condolezza Rice - Secretary of State
Christine Todd Whitman - Former Governor of New Jersey, former Secretary of the Interior

Yeah, "the smartest man in the room (and he knows it)" versus a woman who is definitely not a wallflower, and not dim by any reasonable definition.

Biden's going to come off exactly as everyone can expect - as a snotty asshole, who will try to look down his nose at Governor Palin as often as possible. This does NOT go over well with most Americans.

...and then Biden has to contend with reality - a smart, accomplished woman who had the nickname "Sarah Barracuda" in high school basketball. This won't turn out like most Democrats hope.

Well, as a dyed in the wool conservative, this sure does make me feel more comfortable voting for McCain. To be honest, I really wanted Romney or Thomson to be the GOP nominee. McCain was my LAST choice, and I've been feelilng absolutly horrid that the only reason I would be voting for him is that I think an Obama presidency would be disasterous. It would have been a first for me, of not voting "for" someone, but specifically voting "against" someone.

McCain picking Palin makes it so that I really will be voting "for" him. Ever since Wizbang brought her to my attention, it's been my secret hope that she'd be the one that got the nod. Glad McCain made the decision he did. :)

As for Condi Rice I would have loved if he had picked her. However, I doubt that she would have taken the job had it was offered. Besides if he had chose her (and she accepted) then I am sure you and a LOT of other liberals would be saying he chose her becuase she is black (totally ignoring 8 years as Sec Of state and National security advisor, and the fact she speaks 5 languages and got a masters at I believe 21.) The only thing that would be said was "He only chose her because she is black"

SarahConnor2:

Stefania,

As a working mom who wants to see women treated equally, I am tired of feminists like you acting like a woman can only be a feminist if she is liberal. Sarah Palin got where she was on her own. Hillary Clinton rode her husband's coattails. Frankly, a woman staying with a husband who treats her like crap, just because he promised to help her get a Senate seat, has sold out all women who want to be respected based on their merits.

In addition, if experience is such a concern of yours, why are you supporting Obama? It's knee jerk, hypocritical comments like yours that hurt women.

Kristin:Your list ... (Below threshold)
Sean P:

Kristin:

Your list is full of candidates who McCain would not be able to consider due to their idological differences with the party. Snow and Collins are probably the best the Republican Party could hope for in a dark blue state like Maine, but as the standard bearer for the party, they are a non-starter.

Ditto Olene Walker. I'd never even HEARD of her before, so I had to Google her. Turns out her tenure as Governor was shorter than Palin's (14 months vs 20 months) and it ended because she was unable to secure renomination from her own party, meaning she would have been a lousy pick where the base of the party (who seem to love Palin) is concerned. That's called good politics.

Murkowski? Huh? Picking Palin is patronizing but Murkoski isn't? Her tenure as Senator is barely longer than Palins and she ONLY got the job because she was appointed by her dad (who Palin defeated in a Primary, which should tell you how much pull he -- and she -- would have).

Dole? She's as old as McCain. Are you even for real?

Rice and Whitman? I got three words: "Bush Administration official". That phrase would have become part of their legal name by election day if McCain had picked them. And Whitman has an even bigger RINO problem than Collins or Snowe.

The only semi-plausible candidate you mentioned was Hutchinson and frankly she strikes me as pretty dull and unimpressive, and she isn't particularly popular with the base. Reasonable minds can differ but I totally fail to see how picking Palin over Hutcinson would be insulting.

By the way - George Will (you know that ultra conservative columnist who happens to be very bright) wrote a column a few months ago in which he concluded the LEAST experienced person to be president was Abraham Lincoln.

This was an absolutely brilliant decision by the McCain campaign.

The Palin story today has eclipsed what was intended to be a transcendent moment for the Obama campaign last night. Obama has been taken off message again, at what was to be his finest hour and you can hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth on the left.

But the Palin pick pays dividends too. She will galvanize the heretofore recalcitrant Republican base that McCain has battled throughout the primaries. McCain hasn't brought the base into the fold with this pick, he has joined the base.

Much has been made of the Hillary vote here, but remember that there is a very large demographic of conservative women voters that does not get any where near as much media attention as traditional liberal women voters. I'll go on record now to predict that this demographic is a silent majority that will carry McCain to victory.

Obama has less experience then Palin. HOw great is that. She is articulate, thinks on her feet, knows where she is going and most of all, can speak off the cuff. Obama cannot say anything unless it is on a teleprompter. I just saw the Obamanator of the news and he was asked a question about Palin and he just muttered and Um'ed himself to death.

The decision to select Palin puts a fork in any liberal delusions of a cakewalk victory, which is why they are pulling out all sorts of lies and distortions. Palin is going to appeal to the blue-collar voters who will decide Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. with both Florida and Virginia starting to poll very badly for the Obamanation, they cannot risk losing those 3 states. Palin also will boost McCain in the west, where the donks were thinking they could pick off Montana, Nevada and New Mexico. Those states will almost certainly start polling for McCain/Palin.

And remember the big O is running through money faster than he brings it in, which is a huge part of why he turned his back on public financing. His campaign is bloated and falling apart.

And I really don't have any fear of the few fakes who claim to be GOP members, but are throwing a fit over the selection of Palin. Most of them are really Donks who are hoping to somehow deflat the bounce McCain is going to get from this. Especially as Obambi got a dead cat bounce from the convention.

This noon-time, as I listened to Gov. Palin speak, I realized I had nothing to be Upset about today. I'm still an Old Guy, but I'm not Upset. McCain is right on defense and the GWOT, and he's picked an outstanding running mate.

BTW, the Big O is demonstrating a pretty consistent track record in picking/voicing the wrong thing as a first response to events in this campaign. Palin: he lies by ommission (left out the fact that she is the sitting Gov), while dissing both a town and state. Georgia: he saw provocation on both sides (the Russian's excuse). Ayers: just a guy that lives in his neighborhood, very mainstream. Rev. Wright: we were just listening to little sound bites, we didn't know the man. And then he touts his judgement as a qualification?!? Tomorrow I'll be upset about this stuff, but not today.

cirby, I'm with ya there. I try to talk politics with my husband and all too often he just dismisses me with a roll of his eyes saying that I'm "just too serious about it". (I have to keep reminding myself that he's from Italy where they've had 50+ governments since WWII) Well, he's right in his assumption about my seriousness. But he's always surprised that I'm more right than I'm wrong.

I brought up your very point with him tonight. Biden might very well walk into his debate with Palin with the mindset that she's just a woman, not as seasoned as he and he is just self-absorbed enough for that to be to his detriment. He is just the kind of person that might underestimate his opponent because of an over-inflated sense of himself.

I could be wrong. It certainly wouldn't be the first time. But I know people like Joe. And they usually have a gun aimed at their own feet.

Your comment #46 above:

I think one of the regular writers here needs to focus on this issue because the accepted wisdom (actually, lack of) in the legacy media is that this group of women voters is small, passive, subservient and uninformed. Nothing could be further from the truth and I truly think this is a stealth voter block that is becoming energized.

For example, I have have an office across the hall from a large group of child psychologists (all women) whom I speak with fairly regularly as I see them in the elevator or in the hallway and at Holiday gatherings. They know my political positions but have never offered their own opinions ( out of professional discretion, I think).

Yesterday afternoon I passed two of them in the parking and they shouted "Hey, Hugh! Sarah Palin...awesome!" I think this is going on everywhere and is a story waiting to be told.

The Libs got blindsided and the American Public love here. I was at the rally in O'fallon MO the Sunday and the crowd cheered louder for Palin than they did for McCain

The "choice" was done when they decided to lay down with the guy they got them pregnant, and one day they will have to answer to GOD!!

Carmen:

I must admit, as a moderate, I see both points of few. However, you accused Stefania as being sexist and against Palin because she is pro life but NO WHERE in that portion you attached to your blog did I read a thing about either of those two issues.

Please explain to me how you drew that conclusion from that portion of the blog. I have not read the other portion since it's not attached.
