John McCain has picked Alaskan governor Sarah Palin as his vice president. She’s anti-choice, anti-gay marriage, thinks evolution is a myth, pro-death penalty and a few other things guaranteed to cause instant dislike amongst progressives.
She’s also a mother and wouldn’t you know that it is her status as mother that is the first slam:
How is she going to campaign full time with a baby? Is that any way to treat your child? Can she handle the VP duties and also raise a baby, a 7 year old, and a 13 year old?
Followed quickly with a bit of racism against her husband:
My friends, please welcome the Mayor of Wasilla and her eskimo First Gentleman.
And by a liberal.
And people wonder why some of us are extremely put off by the shit that has happened and continues to happen within the ranks of liberalism as it relates to sexism and racism?
