Palin’s Good Looks Driving Jealous Feminists “Crazy”

Posted by Tom Jackson on October 22, 2008

In an interview on Bill Bennett’s radio show this morning, John McCain’s campaign manager Rick Davis made an, er, interesting point about the effect Sarah Palin is having on liberal feminists. Have a listen…

I wonder if it’s really her “good looks” and “happiness” that is driving liberal feminists crazy? I’m taking a wild stab here, but I have a feeling that the problem most feminists have with Palin has less to do with her beauty pageant charm and more to do with her complete incompetence and complete disregard for women’s rights. I know it’s a crazy theory that most of the right wing would dismiss as just another jab from the “liberal gotcha, media”, but I have a feeling I might just be on to something.

What da ya think, ya’ll?

    McCain himself says that Palin was nominated as a “counterpoint” to liberal feminists. Iit seems he doesn’t actually know what “liberal feminism” is, he’s just using “liberal” as code for “left winger I don’t like”.

    Now the Republicans are whining and/or gloating – possibly both at once – because feminists don’t support Palin? Anyone got a handy animated gif of someone doing an eyeroll, a yawn, and a shrug all at the same time?

    How about this? Particularly relevant to the Republican campaign, I think.
