In her speech tonight in Alaska, after thanking the "First Dude"- yep, she really said that-Sarah Palin gleefully told the crowd that everywhere she goes, people are shouting, "drill, baby, drill!" That Sarah, what a sport! She was laughing right along with her sexist supporters.
I'm not kidding. Forget the Freudian metaphors, calling the potential vice president "baby"-shouting it at her like she's some female wrestler- is blatant sexism. To be consistent, all the major networks should make this their top story tomorrow, and McCain himself should demand a formal apologize to poor Sarah.
And pigs, lipstick or no, might fly.
Everytime the McCain/Rove campaign cries wolf when it comes to sexism, they make it harder, not easier, for women to achieve and harder to combat sexism when it does occur. They have never been the Party that fought for women's equality. On the contrary, they have blocked the advancement of women at every opportunity. Don't be fooled. They're not concerned about sexism-they're concerned about winning. And if Democrats allow them to make us afraid to take off the gloves, they'll do just that.Sphere: Related Content
