So, Inexperienced Palin Nomination NOT About Women-It's about Evangelicals

31 August 2008 at 9:26:51 AM

Yesterday I wondered why in the fool one of the campaign spokesmen for McCain said that Palin would learn at the feet of the master. SO offensive to women. And I daresay there aren't many women who were for Girl Power with Hillary Clinton who would vote for McCain and his anti-female policies JUST BECAUSE PALIN IS FEMALE. Heck, so's Michelle Malkin. So's Condi Rice. So's Laura Bush. So's Madonna. So's Ann Coulter. SO??????

But Palin has religiosity.  And it occurred to me that maybe the comparison isn't really for feminists, who naturally are appalled at how sexist such a remark is.. but instead to Mary sitting at the feet of Jesus.  Perhaps a subtle way both to appeal to the fundamentalists with a religious female as well as make a soft comparison of McCain with Jesus (pardon me while I snicker behind my hand). In the evangelical religions, women know their place; doesn't matter if they are smart or well-read or have an inquiring mind as long as they know that their head is a man. So, if I am correct, the example of Palin sitting at the Master's feet, McCain, won't offend at all, but merely reflect the hierarchy for the male-dominated Christian religions.

 In that realm, Palin fits the bill. No worries for her that McCain Isn't for equal pay for women. And she apparently agrees with him about abstinence, rather than birth control (which she apparently doesn't use anyway) being the way to avoid births.

The New York Times Web site reported the following exchange with a reporter in Iowa in March 2007:

Q: "What about grants for sex education in the United States? Should they include instructions about using contraceptives? Or should it be Bush's policy, which is just abstinence?"

McCain: (Long pause) "Ahhh. I think I support the president's policy."

Q: "So no contraception, no counseling on contraception. Just abstinence. Do you think contraceptives help stop the spread of HIV?"

McCain: (Long pause) "You've stumped me."

Having 5 kids, being married, but still out working to get the Rich Republican Greed Dream, is knowing her place. She also won't pose much of a threat to his presidency, because he can just send her out on PR missions , and not  worry her pretty little head about policy decisions. I say that based on her comments on policy issues beyond christian issues, which show she is mostly clueless about what's going on.

But I think that's exactly the point. And why any thinking woman that isn't brainwashed into being a second class citizen by a religious political party will reject Palin.
