Sarah Palin’s Uterine Activity & Her Daughter’s, Too–UPDATED

by Melissa Clouthier | September 1, 2008 1:28 am

I keep thinking that the misogyny and sexism can’t get any worse, or that it’s isolated to the crazy extremists at DU and Kos, but no. Andrew Sullivan leads the woman-hating[1] charge. Alan Colmes, the guy liberals think is a softy for his affiliation with Fox, proved his lefty worth today[2].

What is wrong with you Lefties? Have you no shame whatsoever? For more than a generation, blacks, women (not a minority), gays and other minorities have fought for respect and equal rights. That means this: that a person is treated the same no matter their color or gender or sexual orientation.

And here, now, supposed progressives savage not only Sarah Palin, saying that she wasn’t pregnant which is so ridiculously insane because it is so easily disproved, but that her daughter, was pregnant and hiding it. And her daughter has to see herself blown up in enlarged pictures and examined like a science project because conspiracy nuts are filled with such vicious hate that they don’t mind ruining a child’s life. Sarah Palin chose to run for office and ostensibly knew what nastiness awaited. If she were a woman blogger, she’d know for sure and wouldn’t be surprised in the least. But her daughter did not choose this path and does not deserve this disgusting callousness.

And Andrew Sullivan gives this bullsh*t credence? I delinked him two years ago, but I cannot believe that I ever thought he was remotely sane. He has no shame whatsoever. None. As a gay man, you’d think he’d have some notion of what it’s like to be a minority and to be hated for that alone. And here he is, a major voice in the blogosphere, putting forth the worst sort of sexist, misogynist bilge. (I refuse to link him, you’ll have to go to the links above to read the crap he’s writing.)

The last three days have been the most shocking, dismaying days blogging ever. I’ve been so excited about the implications of a woman Vice Presidential nominee who reflects my values and my life experience–wife, mother, career, special needs child, libertarian, small-government, reformer, etc.–and to see her treated so heinously feels personal. But what’s worse, is I imagine my daughter having to endure the kinds of things being said about Palin’s daughter and I want to beat the hell out of someone.

This needs to stop. The leftists need to stop. If they have any moral compass whatsoever, they need to find it and reset it.


I’m still completely disgusted, but with some sleep and some reading has come some humor. Over at Sundries Shack[3] there’s this gem:

Perish the thought. I’m just having some fun here. Unlike the other folks who have visited the Shack looking for “trig palin birth certificate”, “sarah palin husband cheat”, and “trig palin birth certificate for son”. If that’s what brought you here, by the way, you aren’t worth a pound of rotten syphilitic donkey penis and I invite you kiss the whitest part of my ass. That’s not the Christian way of putting it, but I don’t imagine that decent folk will mind the sentiment. Also, I wish on you a case of kidney stones that last a month and feel like Satan’s Darning Needle when you pass them.

That about sums up my not-so-charitable thoughts.

And just when I get in a better mood, I read this[4] at Ann Althouse. The big topic today? Why, it’s world-changing leftist tripe: Sarah Palin’s earrings[5]. And of course, there’s more Andrew Sullivan, this time making fun of dumb hick Sarah. Again, you’ll have to get it via Ann[6]. I refuse to link him.

I go down and then up and then down, now up again. Mark Steyn elucidates[7] why there’s so much to like about Sarah Palin (I’ll give you a taste, but go read the whole thing):

First, Governor Palin is not merely, as Jay describes her, “all-American”, but hyper-American. What other country in the developed world produces beauty queens who hunt caribou and serve up a terrific moose stew? As an immigrant, I’m not saying I came to the United States purely to meet chicks like that, but it was certainly high on my list of priorities. And for the gun-totin’ Miss Wasilla then to go on to become Governor while having five kids makes it an even more uniquely American story. Next to her resume, a guy who’s done nothing but serve in the phony-baloney job of “community organizer” and write multiple autobiographies looks like just another creepily self-absorbed lifelong member of the full-time political class that infests every advanced democracy.

Updated again:

You know how I said this Kos rumor is so stupid and easily refutable? Yeah, well, lookie here[8]: a very pregnant Sarah Palin, who looks awesome, by the way. The woman is 44 after all.
