    Colored, of course. I like to blow a little boogie into them.

    And the breast gimmick in 1984 was to try to attract women voters so Mondale had even a sporting chance against Reagan. Interesting how that works.

    I'm sorry, but this is a false equivalency. Ferraro was much more qualified. She had a clue about what she was talking about at least. She wasn't great, but she wasn't an idiot.

    She was a junior Congresswoman from Queens. Palin was a governor. Ferraro was not "much more qualified". And she was smart, not arguing that. But nominating Ferraro was a gimmick. Are you seriously trying to dispute that? You think she was the most qualified person in the USA in 1984 to be VP?

    Palin was the Governor of Sacramento. (Population size)

    Palin couldn't name one publication she read.

    None of that has anything to do with the fact that nominating Ferraro because of her breasts was a gimmick. The Democrats did it almost 25 years before the Republicans did it.

    Being a woman was part of it, sure. It wasn't the only thing that qualified her.

    A Congresswoman from Queens who served 5 years. What were her other great qualifications?

    By the way, in case you don't remember, Mondale admitted he selected her because she was a woman. He was trailing so badly in the polls that he needed to make a splash. And he said that America lagged behind the rest of the world in elevating women to leadership roles. It was a gimmick, and Mondale made no secret of it.

    As evidenced by the plethora of women the Democrats have run as President and vice-president since then.

    Wait, how long did Obama serve on his term before being elected? I mean, most of America thought that was enough after all..
