McCain's Misogyny & Fear Keep Palin on Tight Leash

Sep 7, 2008 Read more: www.opednews.com 60

During Sarah Palin's acceptance speech when nominated by John McCain for Vice President, McCain wouldn't leave Palin alone on stage. Rather than give her the momentary limelight, McCain peered over her shoulder and read her speech alongside her.

I noticed the EXACT same thing. If my boss stood behind me, looking over my shoulder everytime I was in the public eye, I'd tell him to back the F off.

It will be interesting to see if we hear Charlie Gibson advise the viewers of the approaching Palin interview, that he has been instructed to NOT ask certain questions due to ongoing legal issues..

Keep grasping at straws you Obamatards. Were viewers told that Michele Obama showed up at the View with a list instructing them to NOT ask certain questions? Your pathetic attacks are SO transparent. If the left wing intelligentsia are so smart, how is it they fell right into the trap of attacking Palin, and solidifying the GOP base? Huh?

The GOP "base" fell in line (like sheep) as soon as McCain picked her. Her over the top religious views solidified them.

The left wing attack you refer to, is actually the vetting process. Although a party usually spends months doing that job, the GOP decided to leave it to the public.

Who knew she had a graveyard in her closet?

None the less, McCain is still showing that he doesn't trust her enough to read off of a GOP written speach. She's being directed like the Scientologists usher in and watch over newbies.

Senator McCain needs not change a thing.
He's better off to stick with his campaign slogan and philosophy :

" NO HOPE TODAY MEANS LESS DISAPPOINTMENT TOMORROW "

" CONTENTMENT WITH MEDIOCRITY IS PROGRESS "

Governor Palin is well aware of the enthusiasm he draws at town hall meetings.

That isn't a free press interview. It's more McCain theater starring Puppet Palin. And dumbo Charlie got picked because he is so easily manipulated. Did you hear his obsessing about the failed balloon drop after McCain's speech?? It was truly brain dead. I was gratified that after their stunt in the last Democratic primary, ABC News was shut out of hosting future debates. That poor moderation was such an insult to thinking citizens of any political stripe.

The article says, "I'm angry that John Sidney McCain claims he puts COUNTRY FIRST - but in the ruse that is Sarah Palin, he puts his country LAST."

I couldn't agree more. Obama chose a VP who can help him govern. McCain chose a VP who can help him get elected.

This post is about as lame as my observation with Obama and Bill Oreilly. Did any notice that Obama kept reaching over and touching Bill Oreilly's leg?

I think John McCain is worried that she will start preaching like her pastor. Sarah Palin believes that the war in Iraq is the will of god and in Alaska she brought the church to the Governors office. One of the many reason not to vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin is that there is supposed to be separation of church and state and this will not happen with these two. Sarah Palins pastor, Pastor Kalnins has preached that critics of President Bush will be banished to hell; questioned whether people who voted for Sen. John Kerry in 2004 would be accepted to heaven; charged that the 9/11 terrorist attacks and war in Iraq were part of a war "contending for your faith;" and said that Jesus "operated from that position of war mode." He preaches repeatedly about the "end times" or "last days," an apocalyptic prophesies held by a small but vocal group of Christian leaders. During his appearance with Palin in June, he declared, "I believe Alaska is one of the refuge states in the last days, and hundreds of thousands of people are going to come to the state to seek refuge and the church has to be ready to minister to them."

Her is a clip from an article about what Sarah Palin has said:

Iraq war, gas line God's will, Palin said
MINISTRY STUDENTS: Governor asked them to pray for troops, pipeline.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told ministry students at her former church that the United States sent troops to fight in the Iraq war on a "task that is from God."
In an address last June, the Republican vice presidential candidate also urged ministry students to pray for a plan to build a $30 billion natural gas pipeline in the state, calling it "God's will."
"Our national leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God," she said. "That's what we have to make sure that we're praying for, that there is a plan and that plan is God's plan."
A video of the speech was posted at the Wasilla Assembly of God's Web site before finding its way on to other sites on the Internet.
Palin told graduating students of the church's School of Ministry, "What I need to do is strike a deal with you guys." As they preached the love of Jesus throughout Alaska, she said, she'd work to implement God's will from the governor's office.

We have to question McCain's judgment for choosing a right-wing religious conservative with absolutely no foreign policy experience and a brewing scandal which is being investigated by the Alaska state legislature.

If McCain had an ounce of "good judgment" and wanted to pick a right-wing religious conservative, he should've chosen someone like Gov. Huckabee, who is also southern, and would've helped him in the fall..........

All we know is she likes mooseburgers.
She promoted teaching abstinance in public schools, but failed to teach her own daughter.
She's favorable to the Alaskan Independent Party, who promotes separation from the United States; her husband is a long-time member.

She's left us with more questions than answers! She has CLEARLY only been chosen BECAUSE SHE IS A WOMAN.

Right on, Tex! Somebody had to get those Jerry Springer to vote for them. Sex sells, fodder for tabloid journalism sells and never underestimate the stupidity of some American voters.

Biden has foreign policy knowledge, as does McCain. Obama is not good with it which is why he chose Biden. Palin has executive experience. McCain has military knowledge and experience. What exactly is it that Obama has? He is at the top of the ticket, Palin is running for VP. So why is it you are ok with a freshman senator at the top of a ticket, but not a Governor in the spot of VP?

That conservative icon and Republican hero, Ronald Reagan (overrated), had no foreign policy experience,(being Govenor of a state that bordered Mexico doesn't count) nor any military service prior to his election, yet many Americans had no problem with that. It seems that those with Barackophobia should extend Obama the same consideration. McCain, with all his foreign policy experience was wrong about the war in Iraq, Obama was not. Experience does not necessarily equate to expertise. Twenty years as a paramedic well-versed in lifesaving first aid doesn't qualify one as an emergency room physician. Give me someone with strong intellect who has a grasp of the issues, who can bring people together and motivate them into getting the job done. I'm not so sure you have that with this Republican ticket. Time to put old ideas which haven't worked and that have been in place for so long, out to pasture.

In what way was McCain wrong about the war in Iraq, if you are talking about the surge, Obama himself has admitted that it worked.
If you are talking about voting for it, the truth is Obama didn't have a vote, so it is quite easy for him to say he was against it. With the evidence they were shown they voted the way they should have. In fact Biden also voted for it, funny how I haven't heard Obama tell him he needed to apologize like he told Clinton.

If experience does not matter, then why all the attacks on Palin over experience? Why are so many arguing that Obama has experience and Palin does not?

Reagan had executive experience.

I know, clearly McMisogynist was staring at her rear, not reading her speech. He knew the speech was prepared for her by a group of his closest old white male friends. Why else would he be messing with his wedding ban? He wanted her in the Biblical sense.

Reagan had executive experience.
Obama was against the war from the beginning. He was correct when he said it was a "stupid war." McCain was for it from the beginning. Don't forget, the surge nicely coincides with the initiation of money paid to Sunnis to discourage further attacks. "Executive experience" is often a misnomer as there's no guarantee what was experienced as an executive would apply to the Presidency. Again, experience does not automatically nor necessarily make someone competent.

So Sambo beat the bitch!”

This is how Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin described Barack Obama’s win over Hillary Clinton to political colleagues in a restaurant a few days after Obama locked up the Democratic Party presidential nomination.
