Women Against Sarah Palin

Here's a website you'll want to check out. It's called Women Against Sarah Palin, and this is what the author says:

We are not in the habit of criticizing women in the public sphere, as we usually feel we should support our female compatriots with as much encouragement as we can. However, Sarah Palin's record is anti-woman. Feminism is not simply about achieving the power and status typically held by men. It's about protecting and supporting the rights of women of all classes, races, cultures, and beliefs. Palin's record and beliefs do not align with this. She was chosen by John McCain specifically because he believes that American women will vote for any female candidate regardless of their qualifications. He is wrong.


On Wednesday, September 3, we sent out an email to 40 friends and colleagues asking them to respond to Sarah Palin’s candidacy as Vice President of the United States. They forwarded the letter to their friends across America. To date, we have received nearly 200,000 responses from women of all ages and backgrounds.


Senator McCain was so wrong in this choice, which gave a short-lived boost to his campaign but, ultimately, will spell out its doom. Be sure to check out the blog and read some of the letters, then pass on the link to any still undecided voters that you may know.

I certainly would not vote for him/her!

I would never vote for either of them, but then I guess by now everyone knows how I feel. It is encouraging to see that so many women are not taken in by McCain's idiotic and unthinkable choice.

I think she is a bimbo and can't stand her. I would never vote for her or McCain but there are a lot of people around here that think she is just wonderful. I can't for the life of me see why they can't see through her!
