The Sick of Sarah Palin Club (No Palins Allowed!)

Are you suffering from Sarah Palin media blitz fatigue? Do you tire of commentators and Palin fans not admitting how batshit insane, pandering and irresponsible her selection is? That with just our rotten luck John McCain will win and pull a William Henry Harrison leaving us with this person as our national nightmare babysitter?

Quelle horror!

Because I don’t know about you, but when I see a picture of Palin, I think of this woman.

She’s a coherent version of Elisabeth Hasselbeck! Run!

I share your feelings and so do countless others. Like my friend, writer/author Cintra Wilson who recently wrote the most deviant, rude, not-politically-correct, slam book-style column on Palin for Salon.com. People are complaining that it’s sexist and mean, but … that’s kind of the point. John McCain picking Palin WAS sexist and mean to anyone who had common sense.

Some choice lines:

As a woman who does not believe what Palin believes, the thought of such an opportunistic anti-female in the White House — in the Cheney chair, no less — is akin to ideological brain rape. What this Republican blowup doll does with her own insides in accord with her own faith is her business. But, like the worst and most terrifying of religious extremists, she seems very comfortable with the idea of imposing her own views on everyone else.

And this next sample — just tellin’ it like it is.

The Republicans are, in effect, saying: We’re not going to win this race on the basis of being the better candidates. Barack Obama is going to make you think. You don’t like thinking. Here’s an It Girl vice president who is easy on the eyes, you stodgy old white baby boomer. She’s like a grown-up version of Mary Ann from “Gilligan’s Island.” She embodies the raw conviction that everything the Republicans have ever done has been right. She’ll make you feel better about yourself for voting for Bush. Twice.

Relax: The war is God’s plan. (Or whatever.) Women, even if they are vice president, can always look pretty, worship their husbands in the fear of God and never, ever resist invasions from unwanted sperm.

And my favorite line:

Sarah Palin may put out to be popular, but the rest of America’s women don’t need to do the same.

Some other folks insulted — the legion of women at Women Against Sarah Palin.

Hearkening back to the proto-feminists of the Women’s Suffrage movement, these ladies are non-too-happy with the Republican Party thinking women vote with their vaginas. They find the whole notion of Sarah Palin: Feminist Icon as a rude farce considering she’s almost anti-everything in the grand feminist manifesto.

Checkout their paeans of pissed-off-ness:

I am appalled at the thought of Sarah Palin in the No. 2 spot in this country. McCain says he wants ‘change,’ but his downright hypocrisy in choosing her is shining through. McCain has finally, openly, shown his disdain for the intelligence of the American woman, and surrendered his vaunted maverick title to the Bush/Cheney/Rove ultra-Conservatives.

Does McCain really think that the women of America will vote for a Sarah Palin who agrees with those policies and worse, just because she’s a woman???

I oppose Sarah Palin because she is John McCain’s running mate. John McCain, the man who laughed when one of his supporters called Hillary Clinton a b*tch. The man who has promised to nominate extreme right-wing judges to the Supreme Court. It doesn’t matter what Sarah Palin stands for (though in fact she stands with McCain on these issues), because you wouldn’t be voting for Palin for president, you’d be voting for McCain.

You’re not alone, snobs. Sensible people of the world cry tears of WTF with you. This is where the healing begins.

  1. I’m so sick of Palin I could call her more than a pig!Maybe if she had been chosen because she was qualified and really had the pretense that she could do something for this country I could look past her constantly in the spotlight for no apparent reason…well every apparent reason except the real issues this country faces.

  2. I’ll say the same thing here as I said in your previous post…I’m getting sick and tired of this bitch and everyone saying how sexist people are being without being sexist. I feel like she is singlehandedly bringing down the women’s movement one speech at a time.

  3. can all the female Obama surrogates please get off their ass and pound this bitch into the ground….yes that means u too, Hilary!

  4. amen. i hate sarah palin and just wrote an entry about it in my own blog. not sure how i came across your blog but it’s really well-written. though i gotta say i’m partial to any fellow st louis women!!!!!!!!

  5. I’m so sick of hearing that name every morning I turn on the TV I could puck. If she can put herself out there she ought to be ready to take the heat. We can say what Obama can’t.

  6. Yet white women are flocking to her like moths to a flame. I mean, he picked her to get the ‘Hillary’ vote, but she believes in nothing that Hillary believed in…Palin is ‘The Anti-Hillary’. Oh and don’t get me started on Elisabeth Hasselbeck…she’s useless.

  7. I like Rush Limbaugh’s only honest assessment of Palin: Jesus, babies and guns. I disliked her high-pitch, whiny Minnesota accent from the first time I heard it, like long nails on a chalkboard. Obama asked rhetorically if Republicans think voters are stupid. Sadly Obama knows the answer, and if he gave it, they would call him an elitist.

  8. I am so sick of Palin. We need to get to the issues and focus on that. I do think she needs to be exposed. with her running with the old man, she does have the chance to run the country. And then I know it is time to become an expatriate.

  9. i too know some white women that are going against everything they stand for and considering vote for mcbush because he has this bull dog in lipstick as his vp…if for some ungodly reason mcbush/lipstick dog gets in, then white women deserve to whatever rights they think they have over their bodies taken away…

  10. Come to Canada! If she becomes president, you guys will be major laughing stock. Why the heck do people like her, especially women? The world is watching the US, shaking its head in disbelieve.

  11. The Palin obsession is because white moderate Americans finally feel like they have a good reason to not vote for Obama. They didn’t want to vote for a black man and so now that they’ll be putting a woman in the White House, they still feel “progressive” enough to pat themselves on the back.

  12. I mean DAAAAAAMN! When I saw Sean Hannity gushing at Hasselbeck and the best he could say when he ran into her at the RNC was “Uh huh, uh huh” I think a commenter put it best: “he was nothing more than a nerdy school boy who got a chance to talk to the popular high school cheerleader.”I swear ‘fore God and this country: If John McCain dies between now and Sept. 4th, she WILL be the next president, it would take nothing SHORT of the hand of God to deliver the presidency to Obama–and this heffa ends up President, I’m moving. I’m going to finish up my schooling here and take my hindparts to another country.

  13. Thank you for this blog. Our news channels are completely out of control, they act as if they’ve never seen a woman run for office before. I am a white woman and I can tell you, I would never, never, never vote for such a radical, narrow minded, fingernails on chalkboard voiced crone as Sarah Palin. It makes me sick the Republican dictators think they can fool women. Typical Rove and typical McCain. Not sure if it’s true but I read McCain called his wife the “c” word in front of reporters. Why doesn’t that get media coverage, barely a note about his infidelities with his 1st wife? Anyway, keep up the conversations!

  14. I have to say – comparing Palin to Hasselback does Palin a disservice. Hasselback reminds me of those open-mouthed sex dolls; just as intelligent. At least Palin can fake a brain.White women I know are insulted by the Palin pick. The thought that the GOP could be so patronizing as to believe women will vote their gonads leaves them apopletic. Especially when there are far more qualified GOP women.But as a snob-in-arms, I could believe people could be that Forrest Gump.Bourgietopia

  15. Palin is a scary piece of work and a liar. Palin boasted about putting an airplane on eBay when the truth is it was eventually sold by a private broker. She waved her infant in our faces as proof of being an advocate for disabled children in the White House when the truth is she voted to cut funding for disabled in her state before the birth of Trig. And if you pay close attention to the birth date of her first child and her wedding date they are a bit close which tells me she conveniently believes in abstinence only after her self imposed shot gun wedding. There aren’t enough expletives to describe how much I despise what she represents. I have nothing against her. God love her moose shooting, NRA loving, PTA pistol packing ass. It’s the hypocrisy of the Republic party and their Kool-aid. So many dumb asses are drinking it. Poor uneducated, underemployed whites will not vote for Obama simply because he’s Black. They will vote Republican because they hear the rhetoric and they believe. Oh yes Lord they believe. Family values. Whoo hoo. More Kool-Aid more Kool-Aid please, while its Republican policy that keeps them and the rest of the poor underserved groups in this nations out of jobs and out of options.

  16. As a woman, I too am incensed with Gov. Palin. She is so irritating and a very poor substitution for Hillary Clinton. I have a baby boy under the age of one, who is not special needs. I can’t imagine signing on for the demands of a Presidential campaign, and hopefully not job of VP of the US.
