South Carolina Democratic Chair: Palin's Primary Qualification is that She Hasn't Had an Abortion

Carol Fowler, chairwoman of the South Carolina Democratic party and wife of Donald Fowler who infamously laughed that Hurricane Gustav was going to hit New Orleans on the opening day of the Republican National Convention, remarked that the primary qualification Sarah Palin has to be John McCain's running mate is that she's never had an abortion. Classy. From the Politico:

South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Carol Fowler sharply attacked Sarah Palin today, saying John McCain had chosen a running mate " whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn't had an abortion."

Palin is an opponent of abortion rights and gave birth to her fifth child, Trig, earlier this year after finding out during her pregnancy that the baby had Down syndrome.

Fowler told my colleague Alex Burns in an interview that the selection of an opponent of abortion rights would not boost McCain among many women.

What a pair these two are: classless, tacky, and callous.

When did Joe Biden have an abortion? Because that must be the only thing that puts him on the Donks ticket. And when they find out he couldn't pass the physical to get one, will Obama throw him under the bus too?

I am betting that tomorrow, BHO is going to brag that he also has never had an abortion. I mean he seems more worried about comparing himself to Palin than to McCain.

Another day, another despicable attack on Sarah Palin by another vile, soulless assclown. These dumb shits are apparently going to keep it up until the only place that delivers any electoral votes for Obambi is Hell.

It's not a question of when he had one, but when he was designated as one.

Well, if there's one bright spot for Dems and lefturds, it's that they don't have much lower to dig.

Seriously, as soon as they get to "Sarah Palin is the leader of an alien race sent to conquer earth and eat puppies!", what else can they come up with?

Sarah Palin had an affair with Bigfoot?...
John McCain has no honor cuz' he he got TWO snacks out of the vending machine for the price of one?

Where else can they go with these things?

Ms. Fowler
You are a mocker and the spite you and the others in your party keep directing at Sarah Palin and John McCain will keep on returning to you, times ten. Your candidate is an embarrassment to the ticket, he is not ready to lead, cannot maintain the resolve to hold himself above politics as usual. He learned well in his years of community organizing Chicago and creating image, not substance. When he could have made a difference; he chose to maintain status quo. When the media ever focuses on his thin resume and the real debates begin, his mettle will show. Just as yours did in your comment today.
I had lunch with seven ladies, because there are those who admired Hillary we rarely speak of politics, but the lipstick comment Mr. Obama is artfully dodging hit a mark, and two of those Hillary backers are now solid for Sarah. Listen to the tide, it is coming in and you will regret being a part of the pettiness that was the demise of the Obama hope.
Be grateful you will never have the light shone on your qualifications for the post you hold that Sarah has had since being selected for an office she is entirely experienced and ready for.

Fowler exemplifies a problem many women are beginning to wake up to. I complained to a friend about it earlier this week and he helped me define it better. I complained that the Democratic Party and Democrats in general never seem to be much interested in women or their opinions except in matters pertaining to abortion or sex.

He said if far more succinctly: they have reduced women to one dimension and defined them by one issue.

I haven't heard it put quite as concisely. I may have to use that.

This just in: Well, it's official. The Democratic Party has ceased to exist. That's right, on 09-11-08, the 7th anniversary of the 09-11-01 attacks, the DNC, for lack of a better analogy, has been consigned to the dustbin of history. Wherein, it has joined such notables as the former Soviet Union, mood rings, and disco. So long DNC, it's been real. America needs a two party system, but the DNC could run on fumes for only so long. It's up to Barack Obama to reenergize the platform. And, perhaps he's the right man for the job. Now the DNC had been sputtering along, nursing its panoply of grievances, eye poking, hair pulling, and culture warring, from which it earned a respectable income. But shortly after 09-11-01, the DNC also collapsed into a pile of rubble. Just what happened and when, will be addressed by more practiced wits than my own; but one thing's certain, the DNC is done.
