The Washington Post’s War On Women And Sarah Palin
What to make of this, other than, it's not okay to be sexist but it's Sarah Palin, so I will be?
"When Palin took to the makeshift stage in the middle of a Missouri farm field, she was dressed more for the part of Hollywood celebrity than serious politician. I know someone’s going to remind me that just last week, I said it was sexist to focus on the wardrobes of women in politics. But it was hard for me to take Palin seriously dressed as she was."
I thought all that "war on women" nonsense was a GOP deal? My impression of what Reese is actually saying here is, it's not okay to dump on women in politics unless, God forbid, you know, they're a woman!! Femininity, or, … good heavens, sexuality ist strictly verboten!!
This is why I contend that the real war on women originates on the left. Outside of the entertainment field, to qualify for protected status on the left, a woman needs to leave behind those things that might make her appear uniquely feminine to a man.
If you want to shoot for attractive, let alone sensual, you'll have a better go of it as a gay male, than you will a woman today under the left's guidelines for political correctness.
But as for what one might call a real woman, one a man might find himself attracted to, or even want to spend some time with, in the mind of those on the left today, they can't possibly be worth taking seriously.
So, who is actually waging war on women in American society when it comes right down to it? As far as I'm concerned, it's the left and liberals and always has been.
Politicians don't always have to be strange bedfellows, do they? heh!
First, her shoes: Five-inch wedges. Her black capris weren’t quite skin-tight but tight enough, and her t-shirt with its Superman logo (a Steelman campaign shirt emblazoned with “Our freedom. Our fight.”) emphasized her figure. She never once removed her oversized sunglasses.
I’m sorry, but I’d like my minister, my doctor and yes, my politicians, to look and dress for their parts.
Once Palin spoke, I couldn’t help but think she sometimes sounds like a caricature of herself. Perhaps it’s her unique manner of speaking or her overuse of certain phrases.
