Sarah Palin is all woman. Not only is she a woman, she supports women. Palin graced the grimy city of Toledo, Ohio and had a chat wit da ladies. Here are some of her best quotes:
“When it came time for choosing someone how Barack Obama just couldn’t bring himself to pick the woman who got 18 million votes in his primary and that seems to be too familiar a story isn’t it?” Palin asked, “How it is for so many American women that the qualifications are there, but for some reason the promotion never comes. There is always some long explanation for why they got passed over or some unseen barrier, some excuse and that’s just one of the things I so admire about John McCain he is not someone who makes excuses.”
“Why did it take 24 years, an entire generation from the time Geraldine Ferraro made her pioneering bid until the next time that a woman was asked to join a national ticket. In the long history of our country 74 people have held the position of President or Vice-President and why have the major parties given America only two chances to even consider a woman for either office?”
She referred to Todd's role in the home as someone who “who doesn’t disappear at bath time or run from diaper duty.”
On equal pay: “Out on the stump he talks a good game about equal pay for equal work, but according to the Senate pay roll records women on his own staff get just 83 cents for every dollar that the men get. That’s 9,000 dollars less every year that he pays the guys. Does he think that the women aren’t working as hard? Does he think that they are 17 percent less productive? And Barack Obama cant say that this is just the way that its always been done around the Capitol, because I know one Senator who actually does pay equal wages for equal work, Sen. John McCain.”
Again, here is Sarah is being her leaderful self. Because she says John supports equal pay when he has gone on the record saying he wouldn't support legislation about women's wage equity. Maverick spirit ride on!
She kept it vague, but tough when she said she will work to help the effort to address the need to stop honor killings and the global sex trade.
Stand strong, Sister Sarah, stand strong.
