I don’t like Palin. At all. Yet people call me sexist because I don’t like her. It’s like you have to support her because she’s a woman. Is that, in turn, sexist?? I’d never support someone because they have a vagina. I’d support them based on their stances and voting record. I’m being accused of being anti-women because of this.
I don’t like her politics. I don’t like her stance on abortion, gay marriage, her shady ethics and her lack of experience.
I don’t like that she introduced herself as a “hockey mom” yet apparently her status of a MOM is off limits. Why?? Didn’t she open herself up to that by defining herself AS A MOM?! She did this.
I don’t like that she accepted the nom with all that is going on in her family. It should be a private time, yet her poor daughter can’t sign on the internet or turn the TV on without seeing her very personal situation being debated/discussed, her “shot-gun” marriage, her waistline, etc.
I’m tired of people saying this wouldn’t be happening if it were a man or if she were a dem. Get real folks, it sure as shit would be happening. Stop playing the victim card. I’d feel the exact same way if Obama’s daughter was a pregnant teen. He shouldn’t be running if that was the case.
Personal situations should be kept out of it, but this is politics. You know this going into it. I can’t help that I’m human and her decisions as a parent (note, I didn’t say mom) effect my view of her. I want someone leading me to have similar family values. And that means not putting her daughter out there for the wolves RIGHT NOW.
And now, people are commenting on her hair and her outfit, and that’s OK? Because it’s from the repub side? Explain to me these double standards. If a dem were to comment on those things, it would be petty or small of them, or sexist!!
Why can she make jokes (think: Pitbull) about being a mom, campaign on being a mom, yet her motherhood type decisions can’t be touched?
Last night, I watched the speech. I like to think with an open mind, because I do like the thought of a woman in the White House. But, she took an oppertunity to show people what she was made of and ripped the other candidate. How about some class!? You’re a relative newbie and that’s the best you can do?
All I’ve heard from her supporters today is what a great mom she was, how cool her hair looked, and that’s she’s “tough”. And we’re basing votes on THAT?? No one is addressing her political stances. Because we just don’t know what they are! No one is taking issue with the LIE she told – Bridge to Nowhere anyone?
We’re not allowed to have a negative opinion of her, because she’s a woman/female. I call bullshit.
She cut funding for special needs children by 63%, until she had one, that is.
I don’t need a mom, I need a VP. I’m not finding that on the Republican ticket.
