So now it’s wrong to be a strong, independent-minded woman? Stories about how Sarah Palin is “going rogue” because she said a few (relatively minor) things that weren’t vetted by McCain’s aides are being played as though she had warned that America would be faced with a difficult crisis should McCain be elected president… And so what if she’s positioning herself for 2012? Who could blame her? (And, huh, aren’t we supposed to admire ambitious women?) Watch the first minute and a half or so of this video and tell me: Am I being too soft on Palin or are reporters desperately picking nits?
Tanya must say: Those robotic messages ARE annoying, and I thank Palin for saying as much.
I had one of those automated dealies wake me the very morning of our recent election day. The message bade me, “Good evening,” and insisted it was crucial that I “vote tomorrow.”
I think the term ‘annoying’ is spot-on, really.
Andrea adds: I shouldn’t be, but I’m amazed that I could listen to a political pundit for so long and learn so little. On the flip side, I caught the tail end of CTV’s Question Period today, and there seemed to be two intelligent American women discussing the election, neither of whom were doing Ye Olde Sarah Palin is of the Devil dance, but rather providing a bit more nuanced commentary. For the five minutes I saw, anyway.by
