Applebaum: Sarah Brings an End to the Clinton Era

She calls it the Clinton era but only talks about Hillary.

Teh bitch factor?

More than that: she became the archetype of the Powerful American Woman. She herself once explained the hostility she inspires as the misdirected fury of men who were angry at a “female boss” or other female authority figure. They felt bad about being subordinate to a woman at work, so they took it out on her.

The words "frumpy" and "pantsuit" are also applied.

Anne wants to sound like she "gets it". I don't think she does. On the new Palin era:

All of this while managing a personal life which sounds alarmingly like a Nashville country-and-western ballad: daughter pregnant at 17, husband once arrested for drink driving, sister married to an abusive husband, son on his way to Iraq. Everyone wants to know how she does it.

Fine. I'll accept their weakness and struggling to comprehend.

You don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Because it will bite you.

Also, some Demure Thoughts about Clinton, election conclusions which seem obvious to the sentient, and the lib elite running the Dem party.

Holy shit! From unknown christianist white-trash to archetype in one week. The media really is a herd and the leaders have spooked the rest.

8 I don't know of any woman who (proudly) identifies with Hillary. She's too (co-)dependent on Bill for where she is, and the way she got there.... yeesh. Sarah Palin? I


Also, Todd Palin is HAWT. Damn. There's something for everybody in that couple. Man, woman, straight or gay.

9 which sounds alarmingly like a Nashville country-and-western ballad
I challenge any journalist to name a Nashville country and western ballad they've actually listened to firsthand.

10 "son on his way to Iraq"
Because, you know, only trailer-trash, country-music-listenin'hicks would volunteer to join the Military...

11 Everyone wants to know how she does it? You mean has a normal life, with normal problem like pretty much most of the rest of the country? Gee. Huh. Maybe because she has a loving family, is a strong woman and is able to manage her time and life?

And I think people forget just how popular country music is. Possibly because it reflects normal life better than rap and rock do.

15 Everyone wants to know how she does it...?
Years ago, before I was personally acquainted with a lot of strong and amazing Christian women, I would have been just as skeptical as all these MSM chicks. How on earth could someone be a good mom AND a good governor? Just didn't seem possible. Now, having lived in small-town Kansas for nearly 20 years, I pity the MSM chicks, because they've obviously never had the blessing of knowing the kind of women I find myself surrounded by here. Their secret? Being "plugged in" to the only energy source that never runs out. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)

19 I hate these fucking comments. hitting tab just posted an empty comment or at it looks like it does. anyway, end of my bitching.

I give Glick huge points for using the word applicability... i just love that word.

The Obamagina is starting to lose some of his sparkly goodness and it makes him weep and it probably pisses Michelle off and reminds her of why she hates America. I can hear it now, "I had to sleep with that fat cow Oprah to get you this far and that cracker senator from Arizona went and did this shit. Get off your ass Barry and do something beside cry. Running a campaign is qualifications for being president? Are you back on the pipe, bitch? This is not good for my children."

24 This Sarah person will never be a Hillary Clinton not in her life time. Clinton is a lady and always will be. Sarah is a mouth piece to McCain who will finish messing up the White House and the war.

26 Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! The Manchurian Candidate (fiction becoming reality) vs. the Jackie Robinson Story (Reality which is becoming a fiction). Isn't it funny that no matter how hard Sen. Obama tries he can't get above the high 40's in the polls. Hismissteps and associates are always viewed as far worse than anything Palin and McCain have done. Because let's face it we don't want a smooth talking black guy to rip us off, right? That's because most people in the country don't want to see a black president, no matter how smart or well meaning or articulate and inspiring he is. Because what we all really want is a pitbull with lipstick. I don't know how Palin does it all and frankly I don't care. I know a lot of single mothers and fathers who struggle all the time. I know people with children with disabilities and elderly parents who struggle all the time. Iheard ofteenage girls who have to do desperate things to support them and their babies...white and black, religious or not. So let's get off our high horse (or Moose as it were and
I wanted the smartest person, with an intelligent grasp and concern for the issues that effect my life and I dare say the lives of most of us who are just middle class people getting by, when it's harder and harder. Not some guy with 5 houses who's probably gonna keel over 2-3 years into his term and leave us with a self righteous arch right wingFundamentalist who we have no idea about other than the strictly controlledstory line.We have some serious, seriousproblems and we need serious people to deal with them. Not some self professed Hockey Mom, who just hurled veiled racial (community organizer, do nothing, smooth talker) insults with aplomb, yet isn't ready to talk to reporters. So we think that the great white hope from the North is going to swoop down and save us from the unspeakable...and she's a good looking hunter with a sharp tongue anda penchant for vengeance to boot...Hooyah!!
If we electMcCain and Palinfor the reasons I've seen in the above posts, we are all idiotsand willget what we deserve, theywillbelaughing all the way to the White House. Go back to sleep everyone...turn on the game and forget about our problems, when you wake up it'll be morning in America again.
