Attacks on Palin Show Hidden Mysoginy

August 31, 2008

I get a kick out of the Obamabots who think that we will vote for the two men on the Democrat ticket because they happen to agree with us on 95%+ of all issues.   Nothing could be further from the truth.  She may believe in teaching creationism and not in global warming, but the point remains she is a woman.

Sexists say that Palin has no foreign policy experience, but remember Alaska is the closest state to Russia and while Russia and the US have had a neutral relationship and Russia has allowed the US to use its airspace for missions into Afghanistan, it is clear that McCain doesn’t intend to keep it that way.  Palin successfully defended the people of Alaska from reindeer, polar bear, and Russian attack for nearly two years and that is critical to the conversation of foreign policy experience.

How did she manage to do it?  She kept a tight ship.  When the chief of the state Public Safety Commissioner wouldn’t fire her brother in law, he was fired.  When she was mayor of Wasilla, she fired the chief of police and the library director for supporting her opponent.  The Russians can spot disunity and Mayor Palin couldn’t afford to be seen as weak.  She was sued by the police chief for breech of contract, but won because in Alaska police officers serve at the behest of the mayor.  Don’t mess with a woman who knows her law.
