We Have Not Come A Long Way, Babe

By |August 31st, 2008|

If Sarah Palin was a man being nominated for vice president she would be laughed out of politics and so would John McCain. About the woman thing: "We should all be proud," Hillary Clinton said in a statement, of this "historic nomination." Sorry, but count me out. I found Palin's selection, and her calculated shout-out [...]

McCain-Palin See Hurricane Gustav as Opportunity

By |August 30th, 2008|

BY TAYLOR MARSH Celebrating McCain's 69th birthday as Katrina hit. What a difference a nomination makes. But really, it's so touching that John McCain and the Republicans are worried about hurricane Gustav this time aroud. In fact, they're very concerned. Oh, not about the people of the Gulf Coast region. They're concerned that when Gustav [...]

Sarah Palin Hearts Patrick J. Buchanan

By |August 30th, 2008|

Reporting from the road in Utah --updated-- Rumor has it that McCain's people are headed to Alaska to investigate the Palin investigation. Barn door closed meets horse running wild. Who knows, but she's not an example that should give women comfort. Worst pick ever, especially for women? In fact, as Palin's cultural views become better [...]

Sarah’s Soap Opera

By |August 30th, 2008|

BY TAYLOR MARSH Reporting from the road in Utah --updated-- Before she applauded Clinton, she didn't like her, er... "whining" (or "perceived whine" - video). The Washington Post's report about a "stream of soap-opera-like details about Palin, her husband, her family and top state appointees" isn't exactly vice presidential resume enhancers either. Palin could help [...]

Memories of Dan Quayle in McCain Veep Pick

Does John McCain Think Women are Stupid?

By |August 29th, 2008|

Reporting from the road in Colorado Hillary made 18 million cracks in the ceiling, but Palin can shatter it once and for all. Never mind she has no experience whatsoever to be commander in chief. Considering she's next in line for the presidency if her elderly partner becomes president, that should frighten everyone. Besides, women [...]

McCain’s Hail Mary: Sarah Palin

By |August 29th, 2008|

Reporting from Denver McCain picks Palin This is a desperation play. McCain's trying to mute his geezer quotient with Palin's babe vibe. On that, well done, John. With McCain turning 72 today, this is beyond obvious. However, so much for the "war on terror" being the transcendent issue of our time. The thought of Palin [...]

BREAKING from CNN: McCain Picks Sarah Palin

By |August 29th, 2008|

Reporting from Denver Who is Sarah Palin? This is a move to peel off disaffected HRC voters. I guess McCain thinks they're stupid and willing to vote for any woman. Rabidly pro life, an NRA member, she's not exactly a champion of women's civil rights. We'll have to see where she stands on health care [...]
