I am not voting for John McCain/Sarah Palin, but I would like to voice a concern.
I am really appalled at the bashing this woman receives.
There are quite a lot of people out there that have so much anger and intense dislike for Sarah Palin.  I have to wonder why. What the heck has she physically done to the nation to warrant such treatment?
If you ever watch The View, 4 women on the panel have a hate fest going on for Sarah Palin.  They rip the women up and down for comment she makes or does not make.  For her family, for her life, for any nit-picking thing she does.  One of the ladies on the panel has been sticking up for Sarah, and today Barbara Walters said to her why are you always-defending Sarah Palin?  I though that was odd, as every one else on the Panel are shouting out insults about the women.
This is a very heated election.  People have strong opinions and beliefs about the candidates they are supporting. Everywhere you go, you hear comments or get involved in political discussions.  At late however the discussions are about Sarah Palin.  I listen to people’s comments about her and they are very negative, but I find that the most negative comments come from women.  They get so worked up and if you look at their faces they are oozing out revulsion for this women. Why?  I really cannot understand.
I have heard comments that Sarah is just dumb and is not a good or strong speaker.
Did these same people forget about Dan Quayle?  I did not remember him being bashed this strongly by the public.
Ok Sarah likes to hunt and carries a big gun.
Humm, I recalled Dick Cheney hunting and carrying a big gun and oh mistakenly shot
Harry Whittington on the right cheek, neck and chest.  Not a lot of comments about that either.
A leader is a leader, weather that person is a man or women.  Women have been in power before.  Yes there have been both good and bad women leaders.  But let us not forget that there have also been good and bad men leaders.
People are generally very critical about women.  But what excuse do women have when they are critical and judgmental about women?
The question I have is why do we judge women more severely than men?
Shouldn’t we just embrace humanity as one, and not segregate
