Hillary, Hone Your Claws on Palin

By Adele

I may not have thought Hillary Clinton was the best option for president, but I’m spitting mad they’re presenting Sarah Palin as the way to avenge Hillary’s defeat.

The only thing the two women share is gender. Palin’s regressive thinking makes her the anti-Hillary.

Hillary realized long ago you can’t have it all: a litter of youngsters, a highly successful husband, and a powerful job of your own. She guided Chelsea well on finishing college, getting married, and having babies – in that order – lessons Bristol Palin apparently missed.

It surprised everyone when Sarah Palin suddenly turned up pregnant for the 5th time at age 43. She claims she knew early on that the baby had problems (Down Syndrome), but still gave a 30-minute speech in Texas and flew home after her water broke. Then she delivered a month prematurely and skipped maternity leave to bond with the baby, opting instead to breastfeed him at work. And as if she hadn’t already dished out enough setbacks to that poor child, she named him Trig – like Roy Roger’s horse.

Anyone would treat a new puppy better than that.

Despite her own disregard for motherhood’s responsibilities, Palin’s anti-abortion and claims each life is precious. She’s also pro-death penalty and sees no disconnect between her positions. “Bear them today so we can kill them tomorrow,” is her motto – literally.

Unlike Hillary, Sarah Palin represents Mrs. Redneck America – a premenopausal grandmother-to-be with a quaint, outdated hairdo who loves guns and killing animals, believes that God should run the country and Jesus declares wars, and is bursting with pride that her son’s gone off to become cannon fodder in Iraq and her teenage daughter has a shotgun wedding coming up. Throw in her puny experience governing a relatively unpopulated state and utter lack of exposure to other countries and cultures and she makes Obama look like Winston Churchill.

If Hillary really wants to help Obama win, she should go after Sarah Palin like she’s a new scratching post.

    All I need to do is smell a rat to recognize that it’s vermin. I don’t have to eat it.

    aaaaaand she can read a good speech too. Maybe next time she’ll show up in white robes and lift us all to heaven! Aimee Semple McPalin!!

    Listening first to Rudy Giuliani and then to Mrs. Palin was kind of an out of body experience. last night — and did you notice, the oh-so-motherly Cindy McCain holding Trig Palin without supporting his head. First Rudy sneers over the word “cosmopolitan,” when he talks about how the real people of America aren’t cosmopolitan enough for Barack. I didn’t know NYC was such a small town. And then Palin — Adele, I thought you’d particularly like the comparison of a hockey mom to a pit bull. (In full disclosure, Alice has a cousin, who’s a pit bull; who is the sweetest dog you could ever meet; he even has cat friends, and he’s probably about as qualified for national office as Palin). I particularly liked the fact the she wiped out the profession of community organization in one fell swoop and assured the parents of special needs kids that they’d have an advocate in her — no services, since all the money will be going to wars and oil companies — but an advocate. I don’t know if I can bear to watch McCain’s speech, tonight.

    I watched all of Rudy and most of Palin and it was all I could do to keep my Fancy Feast down. What was particularly vomitous was the way everyone was passing Trig around in the audience like a beanbag. It wasn’t bad enough to parade the pregnant daughter in front of the world, but now they’re trying to make her look respectable by dragging the boyfriend in front of the cameras as well.

    No matter how they try to slice and dice it into something wonderful, kids who become teenage parents screw up their lives beyond measure, compared to what they might have been if they’d just showed some self-restraint and gone to college.

    Adele, when Palin made her joke, I saw her clearly as a pit bull in lipstick. It really fits. And you’re right on the money about her advocacy of special needs issues. Yeah, she’ll give them all the lip service they want, but don’t expect her to support any funding.

  6. Adele says:

    If a definition of insanity is repeating the same action but expecting different results, why would anyone, voting Republican this year, think that “a change is gonna come” by electing McPalin?

    Adele, I just heard on NPR that Hillary, Kathleen Sibelius, and a coterie of Democratic women, are hitting the trail to counter the Palin effect. Clearly, your posting was read by some Democratic operatives. You, Fred, and Yul may be on your way to becoming influential politicats.

    P.S.

    And the suggestion that I forgot . . . I think one of you, at Cats Working, should now take on Oprah, even though she’s a dog person. I suspect that she might have considerable influence on at least part of Palin’s base. Just a thought.

  8. catsworking says:

    Adele, I think we can thank Microsoft for training everyone to fulfill the definition of insanity.

    I am so thrilled to hear that Hillary & Co. are already on the move. It’s been heartening to see here that most of our readers aren’t falling for the Palin ploy, but it never hurts to send the pros (who DIDN’T choose to be pit bulls in lipstick) out into the hinterlands to educate those befuddled women who think Palin, a prime candidate for Jerry Springer’s show, should be Plan B for McCain. I shudder to think what Putin alone would do to her if given the chance.

    Adele,

    Alice want s me to say, on behalf of her cousin, Odin, that to call Sarah Palin a pit bull in lipstick is to insult most pit bulls. Odin is completely loveable, a dog of the people, has never hurt anyone, is neutered, and always makes sure his people vote on the right (which is to say, left) side of issues. Of course, Alice is a social phobe and has never interacted with Odin, but she heard from the last two cats, who lived here, that Odin was very easy to boss around.
