Rove, POW John Pander to POWs -- One Giant Snark-Step Onward for All Vagino-Americans!
I noticed earlier that Karl "Miss Piggy" Rove, unlike his tone-deaf Democratic party counterparts, was oddly attuned and aware of the karma-cause-&-effect thing re: POWs, as in Pissed-Off Women Democrats (a group of which I am, and continue to be, a proud example).
That's why Rove's "Why Not Hillary?" ad was so effective. And, at least to me, unexpected.
As in, oh, what, someone's paying attention?
And that someone would be -- Karl Rove? Ouch!
I think it is a very pleasant thing that John McCain has picked his VP according to her genitalia. I mean, why not?
It will be interesting to see how this plays out in various alienated sections of vagino-american blogtopia, a section of blogtopia whose spontaneous-arising I joined in, cheering.
Moi, I think it may actually piss off the people who are already actually and very reasonably pissed off, even more. (And if it doesn't, it should).
But it may surprise Miss Piggy by pissing them off in sort of a different, and perhaps 180 degree anti-pandering direction. Possibly inspiring some deep revulsion. (And don't forget Palin's being a card-carrying Feminist For Government-Forced Maternity [coughchokecough]).
I for one certainly am finding McCain's choice of Sarah Palin particularly, unconscionably, despicably, almost deliciously repellent.
Am I alone in this? I think not.
We shall see.
But from where I am, this pick is vilely sexist, and a hideous insult to all women.
Hat tip to Jesus' General, a little something about what Sarah Palin may be doing in addition to so cleverly possessing the requisite vagina.
