i think they were just booing at the mention of hitlerys name
A few things wrong with this statement.
#1. its a one liner, cmon now
#2. Really? Bastardized name calling? Please try
be a little more mature...
What i find most entertaining about Palins speech is this:
Hillary was talking about breaking a glass ceiling to get a woman to be PRESIDENT
...Palin is going to try to be VICE President...
and its not the first time a woman has been a VP pick either...
Full List (and source)
- 1884 Marietta Lizzie Bell Stow, United States of America
She was the running-mate of Belva Ann Bennett Lockwood of the The Equal Rights party.
- 1924 Nominated for Vice-President of the Democratic ticket Lena Jones Sporing, United States of America
She recieved 38 votes.
- 1932 Florence Garvin, United States of America
National candidate for Vice President of the United States. Candidate for U.S. Representative from Delaware in 1924.
- 1954 Yun Young Sim, South Korea
In 1954. In 1960 she was Presidential candidate.
- 1976, 1980 and 1984 Angela Yvonne Davis, United States of America
Ran for vice-President alongside Communist Presidential candidate Gus Hall in both the 1980 and 1984 elections. Today, Angela Davis remains an
advocate of penal reform and a staunch opponent of racism and classism in the Justice System.(b.1944-)
There are a LOT
more - please visit the source to see the full list
So...what glass ceiling is she trying to shatter? It certainly wasnt the same one as Hillary - and if its being a female VP candidate, its already
So, if Mrs. Palins words are true
It was rightly noted in Denver this week that Hillary left 18 million cracks in the highest, hardest glass ceiling in America...
... but it turns out the women of America aren't finished yet and we can shatter that glass ceiling once and for all.
Then Mrs. Palin is telling us that the highest ceiling for a woman is VP and she'll never be good enough for President...
Either that - or she knows that if McCain is elected, he'll be assassinated so she can be president......
either way :
Why on earth would she make such a statement?
My guess is:
THAT is why she got boo'd
