Poodle Bitch Does Not Suffer From Palin Rage
Poodle Bitch is worried for the women who are suffering from Palin Rage. Are their lives so devoid of personal meaning and accomplishment that they are driven to near-insanity by the selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as the Republican candidate for vice president of the United States?
They complain that she’s unqualified. But why? Very few people are leveling the same accusation against Barack Obama’s choice for vice president, Joe Biden. Poodle Bitch would like to point out that Biden is a psychopathic scumbag whose achievements as a senator have almost all been detrimental to the country. She would also like to point out that if senator Biden had his way, his running mate would have been thrown in prison for a very long time, and have lost his right to vote, if he’d been caught doing the drugs he’s admitted to “experimenting” with.
(In fairness to Senator Biden, Poodle Bitch would like to commend him for this.)
Poodle Bitch also wonders why they think Barack Obama is so much more qualified than Sarah Palin? She’s in her mid-40’s, was elected to her first major national office a little over a year and a half ago, and is a member of a church whose membership have certain controversial views. You can see the point that Poodle Bitch is making- Palin's experience is comparable to Obama's.
Poodle Bitch thinks Barack Obama is qualified to be president. She feels the same way about Sarah Palin.
Poodle Bitch doesn’t agree with everything Sarah Palin believes. She could spend hours writing about all the things she dislikes about Palin’s politics (although she very much likes this), and if she were a human aged 18 on election day, she would not under any circumstances vote for John McCain. But she doesn’t think that Palin's emergence as a national figure is in any way a threat to feminism. If she really were, that would mean that feminism was very weak indeed.
