I grew dizzy with rage after reading this excerpt from Wilson's column:
"Sarah Palin and her virtual burqa have me and my friends retching into our handbags. She's such a power-mad, backwater beauty-pageant casualty, it's easy to write her off and make fun of her. But in reality I feel as horrified as a ghetto Jew watching the rise of National Socialism.
She is dangerous. She is not just pro-life, she's anti-life. She is the suppression of human feeling and instinct. She is a slave to the compromises dictated by her own desire for power and control. Sarah Palin is untethered from her own needs and those of her family, which is in crisis, with a pregnant daughter, a son on the way to Iraq and a special-needs infant."
Here's what I gleamed from the above excerpt:
Instead of looking at what makes SP so awesome, you try to point out "flaws" in her policies, values and experience. THAT, Miss Wilson, is not the issue here. Sarah may be anti-choice, but YOU are anti-woman. Yes, I know she is pro-life and against abortion even in cases of rape and incest, but what does that have to do with her serving as Vice President? Quite frankly, I'm concerned about what organizations like Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America are going to do when she doesn't become VOTUS. They won't have anything to do because Senators Obama and Biden will protect a woman's right to choose. That will put thousands of people out of jobs. By becoming VOTUS, Sarah Palin is ensuring the employment of thousands of back alley abortion providers, lawyers, community organizers, nurses and activists for at least four years.How is that not feminist? How is that wrong, Mz. Wilson? Yeah, you can't answer that question because you're busy attacking Sarah for her God-given good looks. Jesus made her pretty on the outside and he obviously forgot to make you pretty on the inside. Shame on you, Cintra. I will pray for you and so will Sarah.
