Women in this country are STUPID, this is coming from me, a woman of three children. I see this bump in the polls for McCain because he picked a woman, and women all over this country are jumping on the ovary bandwagon beccause they feel Barack did them wrong. BS, he did what he felt was right. But there are so many women out there that are voting soley on the fact that Palin is a woman regardless of her stance on issues so important to women. This makes us all look stupid.

Thanks OP for once again bringing an important point about Palin to the table but it will fall on deaf ears.

By your logic, doesn't that make the 95% of voting black people stupid as well?

Couldn't it be a woman would more likely vote for a woman because of the personal knowledge that a woman would treat certain circumstances in a different way (regardless of political leanings) than a man would?
A woman would have a different take on the specific situation "only because she is a woman"

So, perhaps it is YOU who does not see it?

I find it odd that this talk wasn't evident when Hillary was in the mix.. no conservatives were saying that conservative women were going to vote for Hillary just because she was a woman.

So what does that say about the Democratic party? (assuming you are correct in your analysis) Is it just liberal women who are "stupid"?

NOTE: this isn't an attack on liberals....


Looking at your entire comment, doesn't that mean you are calling black people stupid as well?

People are STUPID, I agree with that but not just women, not just "blacks", not just anyone.
Just look at voting blocks, why do almost all black people vote democrat and only half whites? Does that make the blacks smarter.. more ignorant on issues, or just more easily influenced? Complex question.

The point I am badly making is that you can't get pissed off that women are only voting for McCain because Palin is on the ticket because it might be a myriad of other reasonings.. Labeling everyone who does so "stupid" only turns it in on you.

and just for the record, you being a woman doesn't bring any more credibilty to your post, I wish people would stop doing that...

"I am a christian but even I..."
"I am black but I..."

I couldn't agree more. But i would take it one step further. If you haven't served in the military, then you don't vote. And the only reason you can't serve is an inability to understand the oath.
I don't care if you are in a wheelchair, blind, or flat on your back, there is someway you can serve.

Heinlein reader also? "Remember: Service guarantees citizenship!" Haha.
Seriously, I appreciate the sentiment. I don't agree though, as we are ALL constituents of the Executive branch. A true popular vote (albeit via electors- another can of worms!) must remain.
I DO stand by my previous statement though, in full. If you haven't sworn to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, you shouldn't be POTUS. Period.
Did I mention George HW Bush was a war vet, as was JFK? Both heroes.

I did get a chance to watch some of the vid tonight, and will try to watch the rest tomorrow night. Some of the points presented are compelling, though so are some of the points presented on "Loose Change". Ya get where I'm going with this?

I'm not concerned with Palin being VPOTUS at all, it looks like the hardline left-wingers are though.

Watsa matta, just 'cause YOUR lady couldn't "cut the mustard", OURS will never be good enough?


Shenanigans I say!!!!!

I haven't been able to watch the video, since I am on dial-up. But I have noticed in this thread, and others, that those on the left seem to be afraid, very afraid of Palin's religous beliefs. Are they afraid of McCain's? (He's a Baptist. The doctrines of the Baptist church believe in the Rapture, the coming of the antichrist, and Armeggedon.) There are members of almost every Christian demonation that are working to bring about the return of Christ. I don't have a problem with it. If Christ is going to return, then it will be when God the Father tells him too, not because of anything members of various churches do to hasten the return.
While Obama has distanced himself from his church and Reverend Wright, he spent years in a church which teaches Black Liberation Theology, which is an off-shoot of Liberation Theology taught in South and Central America by "renegade" Catholic priests. This is a Socialist movement that preaches overthrow of the government, and redistribution of wealth, along with the government take-over of most corporations. (Oil, Transportation, Utilities, as well as any of those who might disagree with the government.)
If that happens here, how long before we are all required to have identification papers on us at all times, or before we are required to be chipped?
Do you see where I'm going with this? Both sides have beliefs which some think will bring about the end of the world. In my opinion, we need to quit looking at the candidate's religious beliefs. Instead, let's look at the issues, where the candidates stand on the issues, and then make a decision, based on what they tell us, and how they perform in the debates.
