On creepiness and sexual harrassment

(Hat tip to Americablog and The Jed Report)
Barack Obama is right, John McCaine doesn't get it. He assumes that women are stupid enough to vote for a woman who is all flash and no substance. He thinks of women as objects. Obviously, he does not have a high opinion of women. His tastes run to former beauty queens and models, the first wife was a model and very attractive before she was crippled in a car accident while he was building the basis for his political career in some fancy hotel in Hanoi. But let's face it, beauty queens do not have a reputation for being very smart or deep. John McCain has issues with women. Maybe it's from his long naval career. Or maybe from his generation, he was born before the baby boom. Who knows? I've met men younger than me who have contempt for women. And women know this, despite the nomination of Sarah Palin to be his Vice President.

And this is the part where the wingnuts start whining about the Clenis. But here's the deal. Bill Clinton actually likes women. His policies while he was in the White House helped women. Even though he was a womanizer, he remained married to the same woman. He listened to the advice of female advisors like Madeline Albright (who was way more effective as Secretary of State than Condoleeza Rice) The right wing echo chamber was mystified as to why President Clinton had the support of organizations like the National Organization of Women and NARAL despite the "bimbo eruptions". It's because his policies (with the exception of welfare reform) helped women. And women were smart enought to know this.

Politicians like John McCain don't get, they think tokenism is the way to win the hearts and minds of women. It isn't. Insulting our intelligence doesn't close the gender gap. But I'm sure it's a winning strategy for the GOP, keep it up.

So McCain picks a woman to be his Veep and now the PUMAs are saying that they are going to vote for the Green Candidate? I saw this in comments on several feminist blogs today.

I guess the GOP realizes that women aren't stupid enough to vote for a woman just because she's a woman. A woman who opposes everything that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama (and Geraldine Ferraro) stand for. So now they are promoting the Green Party in the hopes that voting Green will draw enough votes away from Obama and give McCain the victory.

Why not? It worked in 2000. I just want to remind everyone that IT DOES MAKE A BIG FUCKING DIFFERENCE WHO GETS ELECTED PRESIDENT. The GOP is full of batshit crazy idiots who have no business running the country.

So do not be deceived, John McCain hates women. He is a man who verbally abuses his wife. Yes, a man who calls his wife a trollop and cunt is abusive. And that was in public, imagine what he calls her in private. A man who hates half of the population has no business being president.

Meet Mrs McCain

Profile of Cindy McCain, aka the rich, trophy wife.

Apparently, she's not much of a businesswoman. And she screwed her half-sisters out of their inheritance.


It's Biden

I got the text message at 3:20 this morning. Geez, couldn't the campaign pick a better time to send it out?
And this kitten helped me type this entry. Her name is Sakura, I didn't name her. My son did and he's really into Naruto.

So will it be Tim Kaine? Joe Biden? Kathleen Sibelius?
I guess we will have to wait for the text message. As soon as I get the text message, I will post it.

Update: Everytime my blackberry goes off, I jump. Last time it was my hotel points program update. It's going to be a long wait.

Lee 1995-2008

My cat Lee passed away last weekend. He was a very good cat, he was my son's best buddy and one of the best friends a person could ask for. He lived a wonderful life, born in Washington state. He lived in Europe, Florida, and Virginia. I will miss him.

I'm back

I'm back in the USA after a short four month trip to Iraq. I was in MND-N this time. As you can see, I really think that electing McCain as President would be a really bad idea.

Haven't the failed policies of the conservatives done enough damage to our country? If you are a patriotic American, it is your duty to vote for Barack Obama.
