The Listener 2.0

Waiting in the Wings

…for something worth waking up for in this election. Or at least for the ensuing bloodbath of the incoming debates. We’ll be back to the issues, finally.

(To the staff: Yes, I’m blogging at 10:30 at night. Any idea I have while the sun is still out is a bad one. Now, on with the show.)

So yeah, I’m like the political head around these parts, right? And as far as that goes, I’m staunchly Moderate, but ironically, what am I going to do for my first post? Bash Sarah Palin. Duh. Most recently in a speech class I’m not sure why I take, I had the pleasure of being attacked for not caring either which way about the “Pig-In-Lipstick” issue. Now my thing is this: The Reds are trying to pass all that off as some kind of sexist attack plan by the draconian Obama campaign that should garner the ire of women everywhere, right? Wrong.

But again, my thing is this: if anything, shouldn’t women be more upset that the publicity stunt that is Palin’s VP nomination? I’m flabbergasted. WHY IS THIS GOING UNCHECKED?!

Come on now. It’s basically what’s being said to women in America, whether they supported Hillary Clinton or not. What do you mean this is a big step for women everywhere? SHE SAID SHE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT A VICE PRESIDENT REALLY DOES! She wasn’t even a good Governor in Alaska! Build the Bridge to Nowhere, already! Women everywhere just got set back fifty years. (And Hip-Hop didn’t do it. Go figure.) If anything, women should be insulted that the McCain campaign thinks they are so easily wooed by cheap gimmicks.

I want to say Joe Biden is going to decimate her in the VP debates, but let’s face it. It’s hard to beat a woman in any kind of argument, let alone a mother of five, with one child pregnant, one with Down Syndrome and a son in Iraq. Sympathy is a powerful ally. You know, I just might go to hell for writing this post now.

And the worst part of it all?

This all is likely going to work.

So sit back, and enjoy the show. (Presidential Debate this week!)

  1. Thank you for spitting some truth, Brother Stark! I started feeling like the only person who thought enough outside the box to know that McCain’s pick was just as sexist as those who criticize Palin and ask “Can she be a mother and VP?”

    Side note: As much as I’m against this year’s Republican ticket, no one is asking Obama if he can be a father and president.

    Anyway, it sickens me that idiots–I mean, die-hard conservatives continue to bash Obama’s lack of experience and stand behind a lady “maverick” who governs a state most Americans have never been to. A woman who cannot even explain the job description of a position she’s going for! Imagine going to an interview at the Gap and not knowing what you’d be doing. I swear, Republicans get away with everything and anything.

    Anyway, the “ignorance” of Republicans and the people that support it are all around me and it makes me sick to my stomach. I need to start hanging around some liberals–or at least people with common sense…

  2. The last paragraph is the truth. NO man will ever win an argument with a woman. He may have a few good points, but it’s always a lost cause. I propose a silent treatment to any woman who starts an argument.
