    You use an inordinate number of sexualized terms in order to criticize and demean female politicians.

    Why is that?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    I'm pretty sure that was a compliment... and normal, healthy curiosity.

    She's always hiding behind a podium... Why is that?

    Oh, wait... You think we should take her seriously??





    Karl Rove was right, this is one nutty chick...

    Second, it was a Presidential Election year where you had an extremely popular Democratic candidate running that drove record turnout of a large amount of groups that traditionally vote democratic.

    Third, she was running against the guy that was set to be VP on the ticket with said extremely popular Dem. candidate.

    Fourth, she was running against a long time incumbant who was well entrenched in the state.

    Would a 20 point swing be difficult? Definitely. But there are numerous reasonable factors to suggest that a large swing is definitely at least possible
    What you are failing to take into consideration is that she is not a reasonable candidate. She is a total whackjob.

    Saying you'd like to **** someone is a compliment? I wonder how many women would be pleased to hear some random man refer to them in such a fashion.

    Again, you tend to make sexualized comments about female politicians far more frequently than anyone else here, whether it's talking about how you'd like to **** them, how they just need a dick shoved down their throat, or just off-hand comments about their appearances. Why is that? Don't you think that's degrading and demeaning?

    A "whackjob" that still got 35% of the votes with all those factors in the quoted post being at play, making it completely reasonable to suggest there's a reasonable plausibility that she could make up the 20 points needed in 2010 compared to 2008.

    Unless you're suggesting in 2008 she wasn't a whackjob but she magically became one since then.

    Um, why do you keep saying "20 points"? Last I checked, 50 - 35 = 15.

    Because the original post I was responding to was talking about it being difficult to imagine her managing a 20% change. I've just been going with his comment. Yes all she'd really need is a 15-16% shift

    "Men find me desirable" - yeah, they hate that.

    Also, to be clear, I only said her face works for me, in a chubby-heeked Blair from Facts of Life kinda way... I still need to check out the full package.

    Again, you tend to make sexualized comments about two, maybe three if you include that twit Bachmannfemale politicians far more frequently than anyone else here, whether it's talking about how you'd like to **** them, how they just need a dick shoved down their throat, or just off-hand comments about their appearances. Why is that? Don't you think that's degrading and demeaning?
    Corrected for accuracy.

    Here's what I think:

    With so many brilliant and accomplished women in powerful public office positions today, it's disturbing that 3 women (Palin, Bachmann, and this new chick) get so much media attention. They are, IMO, women of very low character, intelligence, and excel at dumbing things down. They represent the worst kind of women, under-qualified overly-ambitious climbers, who want power for all the wrong reasons. Every time they open their mouths, they set women back.

    My favorite bosses have been women. They were smart, decisive, and got the respect of everyone who work for them.

    I'm sorry if my crass humor offends you. They offend me. D students with type A personalities = vindictive climbers-- the Peter Principle in politics.

    Walk up to 100 random women and say "Hi, I'd like to have sex with you," and then ask them whether they feel flattered or offended. I think you'd find that most women don't particularly enjoy being objectified by people they don't know.

    Also, to be clear, I only said her face works for me, in a chubby-heeked Blair from Facts of Life kinda way... I still need to check out the full package.
    Classy.

    Here's what I think:

    With so many brilliant and accomplished women in powerful public office positions today, it's disturbing that 3 women (Palin, Bachmann, and this new chick) get so much media attention.

    So the proper way to register your objection to their poor character and lack of intelligence is to sexually objectify and degrade them. Yet you don't do the same for men who you find similarly objectionable - you're content to criticize them for their lack of character and intelligence.

    My favorite bosses have been women. They were smart, decisive, and got the respect of everyone who work for them.

    I'm sorry if my crass humor offends you. They offend me. D students with type A personalities = vindictive climbers-- the Peter Principle in politics.
    It's not your crass humor that bothers me, it's the way you direct such specific attacks toward female politicians in particular.
