A Role Model for Women . . .


Puh-lease!

When McCain said in tonight’s debate that Sarah Palin is a “role model for women” I wanted to ripe my TV off the wall! Seriously? Seriously?

Would a role model for women . . .

  • Force a woman to carry a fetus to term even in cases of rape or incest?
  • Make a woman pay for her own rape kit?
  • Oppose the Violence Against Women Act?
  • Endorse ineffective abstinence-only programs in schools?
  • Promote the teaching of creationism?
  • Oppose the Fair Pay Act?
  • Ban marriage between same sex couples?
Sarah Palin believes all of these things, yet still claims she is a feminist. Does anyone else see a problem here? Um, hello? She may be a woman but her policies are completely anti-woman and her rallying cries of shattering the glass ceiling are insulting and make me want to throw up! She is not a role model for women and she is not a feminist! John McCain please stop trying to fool female voters! It won’t work!
