Daily Hot Flash
It's all 'Lipstick Politics' today. I thought I mentioned here prior to the Democratic National Convention that I thought that women were a force to be reckoned with in the 2008 Presidential race -- but no one seemed to be listening. They begged for Hillary Clinton to bow out of the race with grace. Well, they're listening now -- unfortunately, women want to see a woman succeed in politics so badly that they aren't listening to Sarah Palin. Her politics are right-wing fanatical. She's James Dobson in a skirt. She scares me to death. I know she never took an economics class in college. I know it without even looking at her transcripts. And her knowledge of foreign affairs is frighteningly lacking. But it doesn't matter to white middle-aged women who feel like they haven't been heard or seen. They look at her and they see a familiar face. I don't know how Obama can combat this kind of rage once it's been unleashed. I don't know if I can survive financially during another four years of disastrous Republican economic policies, and I don't understand why people don't want someone smarter than they are leading the country. I want the best -- not the best dressed. Obviously, I'm in the minority...I'm frightened.
