    I didn't know Arnie posed nude. But the question still stands. Would a woman who did the same thing be elected? Or would she be scorned for it instead and made out to be some brainless whore for it? I'm leaning toward the latter, not that I agree with it though. I just don't see this country electing a woman who posed nude. I think they would rip her to shreds. However, a man doing the same thing and it's not an issue in the slightest.
    I say,..let's get Sarah to pose,...or find some racey pics of her and find out.

    I really don't think it would be that big a deal (but maybe that's just the contrarian in me). What political opponent would dare bring it up during an election? I think the American people are remarkably forgiving about personal indiscretions in the distant past.

    I think it's more like what political opponent could resist bringing it up during an election?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    No thanks. The last thing I want to is to see that dumb bitch nude. God she is an insult to women in general. Even more of an insult to us independents who might have actually voted for McCain. Thanks to her, we have to suffer with Obama. GRRRRRRR

    I knew about her, but she never really ran for anything legit and certainly didn't win. She was a joke.

    I think it falls into the whole "it looks great on paper, but..." category. I'm not trying to defend it, but as a whole everyone expects men to throw naked photos of themselves around. Not so much with women. Why? Who knows but reasons range from societal to truly biological ("who buys the cow if the the milk is cheap?"). I think, generally, it is something that's not entirely bad for women. Isn't it a good thing they would not be respected if they portrayed themselves as objects of sexual gratification?

    You give and take. Women are held to "different," standards, certainly, but I don't believe they're worse. If, for instance, Brown had cried (e.g. Hillary Clinton)... Where would we have gone but down? I think there's different standards, which is sexism, but I doubt if they are utterly reprehensible.

    I think that would hurt the fool who raised the issue a lot more than it would hurt the candidate who posed nude. I just can't envision an embarrassing picture eliciting much condemnation from anyone...not the voters, not the candidate's opponent, not even from the Christian Right. But I think that raising the issue WOULD elicit a lot of condemnation as it would be petty, misogynistic, and a cynical ploy for votes.

    The voters can stomach a lot more than a racy picture.

    I thought you were going to take that into a "Smiling Bob" kind of direction...

    So Governor Palin, the potential VP swung your vote?
    Bully****e.
    Try again.

    Face it... you drank the Kool-Aid and are now looking for a way out, a way to save face.

    The Clintons are what happens...

    Wow,... as much as I have despised the Clintons, democrats in general,.. I never referred to any of them as a "bitch."

    That someone who I admire and respect as much as I do Sarah Palin can envoke that much hatred and animosity from you (or anyone) blows my mind.

    (practically speechless)

    Nope, Palin did it for me. I didn't vote at all because I had no candidate.
