    No matter what she says, the haters will hate.
    And those with blinders on will continue to not give half a ****...

    I'm guessing you were waving this flag just as proudly and widely during 2008 when there were CONSTANT comments about Palin's looks throughout the entire campaign (and even still today).

    I do agree there's a certain level of sexism still ingrained in our society (Though I think where we may split is I think there will ALWAYS be a certain level, on both ends of that line) but I also think it's just as likely that it was done because it was the easiest means of insulting the other side. It's why we were treated to the strange Paul Ryan faces, Biden "foot in mouth" references, "Bushisms", hamburger/fast food jokes with Clinton followed by sex jokes with Clinton, crazy Howard Dean yells, Bob Dole 3rd person pencil wagging, and on and on. People tend to be lazy, and I think a lot of times when it comes to making negative comments towards people that's where it comes from. Is sometime the lazy path sexist or racist or bigoted or insensitive, or something similar? Sure. But I think often it's less motivated by those things then it is by simple laziness. Not excusing it, just saying I don't think it's the primary motivation often and I think that's part of why it won't fully go away.

    I hope you are correct, just to piss your right-wing nuts off! I love it!

    Honestly Zyphlin, the comments I read, and sometimes heard (on TV), regarding Palin's looks came mostly from the GOP side of the aisle on the forum I was on back in that day. From women too no less. "You're just jealous because she's beautiful." I can't repeat what some of the GOP men were saying on this part of DP. Palin was denigrated more for her lack of substance far more than her looks, excepting the Alaskan Barbie comments. I also cannot overstate how often I've seen posted that collage of pictures comparing conservative women to liberal women.

    I do agree though, that it is an extremely lazy method of attacking a person, especially a woman, saying more about the person flinging the disparagement than the disparaged.

    The topic is mundane and revolves around a fact on how people normally perceive others that only takes a tiny amount of self acknowledgment to realize. You apparently lack the ability to self analyze and without the knowledge in toe to assist you on your way there was no hope you would of have ever managed to lift yourself out of calling everyone and everything sexist without my assistance that I begrudgingly gave you. So no, I'm not passionate about the topic, but I was admittedly annoyed you required assistance on the matter.

    She's really not what most would call an accomplished politician. I do wish her to get well soon though.

    Gotta disagree. While I heard a number on the right making comments, I heard a great deal on the left suggesting she got the nomination because she was hot or referencing her as just a pretty face, or as you said the "alaskan barbie" comments. Which even with that...if you're buying into the inherent sexism notion, how many guys in politics have you heard called "airheads", a term I heard often when discussing Palin's intelligence.

    Both sides got in on that game from what I remember.

    What exactly am I supposed to respect about her. She's a political hack, nothing less, nothing more. BTW: I've never claimed to be a politician, accomplished or otherwise.
