First off (cause I just saw this picture and it reminded me): In the waiting lounge at Philadelphia Airport waiting for our US Airways flight home (more on that joy later!) The Republican.... if it were in England it would be called the Republican Party Conference, but basically the circle-jerk that each political party has where they all whoop and holler about how fucking A they all are.
And we watched it cause we had nothing better to do than stare at obese people.
All I can say is... well played Republicans. You picked a fucking 50's housewife to be the vice presidential candidate to John 'Old-person-special-effects-makeup' McCain. To back him up and support her husbandy Pres wearing an apron and baking cookies.
It plays into the opposite of being a black guy/being a more feminine and submissive seeming Hillary Clinton thing that might win over feminists (? stupid ones) and totally plays into the old people who couldn't think of a woman being in power OVER a man, but can totally see her backing up her man. It makes mccain seem stronger for having a strong woman behind him, a smart sexy secretary type who knows what's what. That can do the donkey work but defers all the important decisions to her superior man-boss.
PLUS she has kids she whored out on tv as being sent off to Iraq or whichever towelhead country America has decided is a threat to... whatever it even is anymore. He looked like he had no idea what reaction he was supposed to have when the cameras were on him. I bet he's secretly gay <3.
Anyway it made me kind of puke-in-the-mouth.
Hmm, I just searched for pictures of her (her name is Sarah Palin, FYI) and she used to have lightened hair, which made her look a little younger- her darker hair makes her look a little more mature? More 50s housewifey anyways. I wish Tina Fey were still working at Saturday Night Live cause she would do such a good impression of her.
