And other days meaning finds you.
As a female born and raised at the end of the 20th century I have watched the hoopla surrounding Sarah Palin with curiosity and a ton of anger. But the laughs far outweigh the disgust. Today I experienced the perfect storm of clarity that made me understand what's going on concerning Sarah as never before.
Rush Limbaugh said on his show yesterday that he doesn't think Palin is a legitimate candidate or nominee because, and I quote, "Women hate her. Viscerally".
Today I figured it out, while munching on my burger and reading Ann Coulter's latest gigglefest.
Women, liberal, conservative, don't really hate Sarah Palin. They hate themselves. Sarah Palin is the mirror most dissatisfied women look at and hate the reflection because it tells them what they should be and tells them loudly that they aren't even trying. Palin is attractive, smart, successful in business and public office, and is wildly popular.
Just like a supermodel in Vogue magazine, average women hate her. Because she is everything they say they are, but aren't. They know it. We know it. And worse, they know WE know it.
Have you ever seen an attractive liberal female? Take your time. I'll make something to eat while you think about it.
Anything? No? You won't come up with one. The best they've got is Nancy Legosi, and let's face it, ain't nobody tapped that in a generation... or wants to. She's neither smart, nor attractive. Her family? Who knows if she really has one? All she cared about was acquiring power to progress the liberal agenda and once there refuses to be moved. Witness her death grip on Mjolnir when John Boehner took over.
If you stand Pelosi next to Palin, you know right away the liberals have already lost the race. Palin is fresh and sassy, and she gets far more right than Pelosi ever has. Even Debbie Wasserman Schultz, another dumber-than-a-bag-of-hair democrat, looks drab and very Ugly Jewish Girl next to Palin. It's a shame she couldn't use campaign funds to do something with that skin. Yikes.
Liberals look at Palin and know the dissatisfaction with their lives that they rarely admit to themselves. The type of woman that admires Palin is the woman who is secure in herself, loves herself and does not need the approbation of another person on this planet to validate her existence. She's more than a Volvo driving soccer mom, she rose above the PTA committees and girl scout cookie round ups. And she was damned good at it. She sits today as the most wildly popular, successful women our daughters will look at and hopefully emulate. Would you seriously want your daughter to emulate Nancy Legosi or Hillary Clinton? Think about it for a moment... I forgot my chips.
So the next time you want to just pop off and call someone stupid or deride their achievements, stop and ask yourself why. Are you doing it because they really are stupid, or are you doing it because they are wildly successful and their very presence on this planet is an affront to your mediocrity? Because I can tell you the very salient reasons I despise Nancy Legosi, Debbier Wasserman Schultz, Barbara Boxer and Hillary Clinton. I can tell you why I hate Obama and his Cronies with the heat of a thousand suns, and it has nothing to do with how they look or public gaffes. It has everything to do with their philosophy. I can name that philosophy and in this blog, weekly I spell out why I loathe their lack of logic and reason. It's got nothing to do with personality and everything to do with sanity.
So go ahead, hate away. But know why you hate, why you dislike and be ready to name it. I'd even prefer someone to say, "I hate her because she's everything I'm not" , and just pin it all down to envy.
Oooooo one of the Seven Deadlies!
