The Race Is OONNNN!!

September 10, 2008

Yes, dear, the 2008 Presidential race has officially begun!! Both the Democratic and Republican conventions have settled on their candidates — Barack Obama / Joe Biden for the Democrats and John McCain / Sarah Palin for the Republicans. Already words are flying out of the coop. Words and charges such as change change change, “no way, no how, no McCain,” “pitbull with lipstick”, racism/sexism, Troopergate, the “bridge to nowhere,” swift-boating, and now “lipstick on a pig but still a pig.”

The amazing thing is that with a woman in the presidential election equation now, everyone is becoming obsessed with lipstick. Is this McCain’s way of diverting our attention from all the real issues of the day? The American public has every right to be appalled at the McCain campaign’s attempts to trivialize this election. This proves true those allegations of the Republicans’ view of the American people as a mass of morons. Since the McCain campaign has begun the trivialization of this election, he and his running mate Sarah Palin have become “fair game.”

Hey, John McCain, guess what? Sarah Palin DOES NOT own a monopoly on lipstick!! Billions of women all over the world enjoy lipstick, too!!

Let the discussion begin…

  1. Hahaha, welcome back! And I agree completely with you on this one. Barbra Streisand’s blog titled “McCain doesn’t get it: Women are not stupid” hit the lipstick on McCain’s forehead šŸ™‚

  4. THANK GOD that your blog is back in action! We all need to kick the elephant’s butt all the way until November election day. Your blog is a great vehicle for voter education that is sorely needed in our beloved Deaf community.

    Keep your journalistic juices flowing, ya hear / see!!


  5. Just wanted to say there is great info on Sarah Palin at womenagainstpalin.com and democracynow.org. Find out the facts people, and see how the McCain/Palin church and guns ticket will affect YOU. From a lipstick-wearing gal (sometimes at work anyway) who wants a QUALIFIED woman in the White House….
