I have to say that I'm not surprised by women's reactions to Sarah Palin. After all how many so called feminists voted for Obama over Clinton. How women can vote for such an arrogant , inexperienced politician is beyond me. I have worked in many jobs where young men have been promoted above women. These men were less qualified but somehow, they were able to charm there way into promotions. Is that how we want our president elected, by his charm? Obama has done nothing to back up his promise of "change". Look at his senate district that he left in shambles. He has never had to make any tough choices. When he was in the state senate he voted "present" 130 times. He has always taken the safe road, except when it comes to the corrupt or racist people that he is friends with. It was his "safe" votes and his corrupt friends that got him where he is today.

I have been a democrat and a feminist for years. Democrats always use R Vs. W as a rope around women's necks. If R Vs. W can withstand 8 years or Reagan and 8 years of Bush you can count on it not being overturned.

Palin is pro-life but she was also raised Catholic. I can forgive her for that. But what I love about her is that she is tough and willing to fight corruption. She is not afraid of the good old boy politicians. She is a woman who will fight for the people.

McCain may come across as just another republican but if you look at his record he is any but that. He may have had to move to the right in order to get the backing of his party but McCain is not a right wing nut like Bush.

McCain has more high paid women on his staff then Obama and McCain pays the women more than the men. The women on Obama's staff get paid 77 cents on the dollar for what the men get paid.

Does anyone remember Lois Jenson? She was the woman who filed the first sexual harassment lawsuit. Well guess who she went to when she needed someone to fight for her... that is right, John McCain. And he did fight for her and he won.

I just ask that you all look at the propaganda and over marketing of Obama and his record (or lack of) before you vote. I hope as women we can think for ourselves not the way the media tells us to vote.
