NYT account of her selection as McCain’s running mate here. Interesting move by McCain to try to capitalize on the sexism thrown at Hillary during the Democratic primary. From the linked NYT article:
Ms. Palin praised the achievements of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, who lost a long and bitter primary race against Senator Obama, saying that she had left”18 million cracks”in the highest glass ceiling in the land.
Then, making an explicit appeal to Ms. Clinton’s disappointed supporters, she said,”It turns out that the women in America aren’t finished yet, and we can shatter that glass ceiling.”
The Supposedly Liberal Doods threw the most disgusting sexism at Hillary Clinton and her supporters during the Democratic primary. Then Obama picks Joe “no friend of women” Biden as his running mate, rather than choosing somebody who would help build party unity. Now the Supposedly Liberal Doods are back in gear, throwing disgusting sexism at Palin. Why does it have to be like this? Hey Supposedly Liberal Doods, if you want Obama elected, stop burning bridges with women voters and start building some.
