No, it’s not what you think.
- I’m not insulted that she chose to bring into this world the precious life that God was kind enough to give to her and her husband. No, an abortion (baby killing) wasn’t preferable.
- I’m not insulted that Sarah returned to work 3 days after having her baby. I think adults can make good choices regarding the care of their children, even when they’re at work. (I’ve never heard anyone chastise a father for returning to work 3 days after his child was born.)
- I’m not insulted that a mother of small children would have the audacity to run for the second highest political position in this country. No one seems to mind that a father of small children is running for president.
- I’m not insulted that Sarah wants to expand drilling for oil in Alaska. After all, our economy needs the oil, our citizens need the jobs, and the wildlife don’t get scared when they see oil rigs.
- I’m not insulted that Sarah Palin shoots a gun. I own a gun and I shoot it. Americans have a right under the Constitution to bear arms, and it’s time we took a good look at that document and stopped trying to take freedoms away from our citizens.
What insults me? All the women who are “insulted” that John McCain chose Sarah Palin to be his running mate.
Women are blabbing about how offended they are that McCain thought he could get their vote “just by picking a girl” as his running mate. And if they think this is the primary reason why Sarah Palin was chosen, it’s no wonder our society is going down the toilet.
Sure, Sarah Palin is “less experienced” than the other potential Vice Presidential picks McCain had in front of him. But she has so many things going for her, not the least of which include:
- Working to clean up corruption
- Being a political outsider when it comes to Washington D.C. politics
- A real track record of accomplishments in Alaska
- A positive energy to bring to the campaign and the country
And yes, she happens to be a female. But if you’re so naive to think that’s the only reason (or even the primary reason) McCain picked her, you’re nuts. Don’t you think McCain knows a whole lot more about his campaign strategy than the mommy bloggers sitting at home being “offended”?
And many of these women were staunch supporters of Hillary Clinton, a dishonest, despicable, unqualified woman who wouldn’t have gotten anywhere politically had she not ridden on the coattails of her philandering husband (who did so because she allowed it). Hillary wasn’t qualified to be President…. not even close!
So you see, I find it quite ironic that they can support someone as sketchy as Hillary Clinton, but then have the audacity to be “insulted” that McCain would pick a woman who has accomplished things and has gone places completely on her own merit and smarts, and who apparantly has a penchant for honesty and integrity. That, my friends, insults me.
