Parts is parts
Wow. Is this the kind of political discourse we want? Not cool.
Egalia reports the use of this ad on "progressive blogs" at Tennessee Guerilla Women.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. There is much about Sarah Palin's position that I disagree with. So much so that I will not be voting for McCain-Palin. But I respect that she is an accomplished and talented politician just as I acknowledge the many formidable male politicians with whom I strongly disagree.
And it makes me sick that she's attacked in this way, because this isn't really about her, it's only vaguely about her politics - this is about her gender. This is saying that any woman is fair game for sexist attacks. As we've seen. This is the kind of nasty politics that aims to keep women from positions of power from the White House to the school board.
This is so distasteful that I'd have suspected that it was a Republican plant if I hadn't lived through the primary season.
