well this is the theory i'm currently working on:
this country was founded by a bunch o' pagan guys.
by pagan i mean, they weren't christians, jews, muslims or buddhists.
they were guys who worshipped something called logic, reason, science,
and nature. they were deists and agnostics, and so forth. i dunno anything about those topics tho, cause i'm a woman.
just for the record. women can't be logical because we are emotional, too emotional. and if we happen to make sense, we are told our logic is flawed
or that we are being emotional (even if we make sense).
so maybe these guys that founded the country, all got together and said, NO MORE QUEENS.
NO MORE NUNS! ya know, that kinda thing, and made a
deal with each other that whenever and if ever, a woman gets close to such a position as the vp or presidency, get rid of it with extreme prejudice.
then it hits the media like a wildfire.
of course, that could be totally wrong. it may just be my imagination that israel had a female prime minister 30 years ago, and in the last 30, so
did britain. maybe it really isn't a good thing for our country to have a female leader. maybe she will break out in a menstrual fit and blow up the
whole planet (ignore the fact that golda meir and margaret thatcher didn't blow up the planet) on second thought, perhaps you're right. palin's
too scary, in fact, women are too scary, knowing myself as i do, i know i would blow up the planet first time someone taped pallet tags to my nipples
or dropped 100 lb band of steel on my foot.
