The Phenomena of Sarah Palin, Christine O’Donnell & Ann Coulter
Ann Coulter is nothing new. I just thought I’d throw her into the mix. What do all three of these women have in common? They are all politically conservative to the extreme. They all have a habit of saying stupid and/or offensive things. In the case of Coulter, you can’t call her stupid; she’s just offensive. What else do they have in common? They’re all “fuckworthy.”
Let’s face it. Coulter is the only one of the three who actually knows what the hell she’s talking about, and her ideals are so conservative that they make Senator Joseph McCarthy look liberal. She repeatedly insults people and makes offensive comments to get her “points” across. For instance, she once said that she thought this country would be better off if women had never been given the right to vote (because women have a tendency to vote Democrat).
Palin is the Alaska governor who rose to prominence after John McCain picked her to be his running mate in the 2008 Presidential elections. What were her qualifications? Well, she was the governor of Alaska, for less than one full term. And she was once the mayor of a small town in Alaska. She was dogged with controversy; Troopergate, etc. She knows nothing about the issues and even less about foreign policy, and she doesn’t WANT to learn anything about them, preferring instead to run on a platform of “common sense.” McCain seemed to be saying with his choice that he preferred to run on a platform of “sexy.” Why not? We Americans seem to prefer sex to substance.
O’Donnell is even more curious, with her appearances on Bill Maher’s old talk show Politically Incorrect and talking about dabbling in witchcraft. The only things I know about her is that she’s a conservative right wing Christian who considers herself born again. Also, she seems to have been a tad misleading about her educational past. Finally, she doesn’t believe in masturbation. I wonder how she’s planning to enforce that.
I don’t think that any of these three women would have ever gotten any attention at all if it hadn’t been for the fact that they are all three uncommonly attractive. Palin, O’Donnell and Coulter all look like they could have easily stepped off the cover of Playboy magazine. Let’s face it. No one in the American media would pay them the least little bit of attention, least of all the ridiculous O’Donnell, if they weren’t photogenic and if some guy didn’t want to nail them. Don’t knock masturbation, O’Donnell. You owe your entire political career to it.
Can’t we please find some Victoria’s Secret model that will embrace the cause of liberal politics? Anyone?
