I want to see her inability to talk to the press, answer questions or deviate from her (already overplayed) convention speech notes as a personal thing. As a Sarah Palin thing. NOT as a woman thing... not as a.. she is just here for show, to look pretty, to distract us, to make it up to the Hillary supporters, because of her gender....
But I have to wonder... there are some very outspoken dynamic Republican women.
Could it be that McCain picked Palin because she would be easy to control?
Can that be read as anything but patriarchy... of conservative male dominance rearing its ugly head?
God, I hope so.
I won't be voting for McCain... and honestly it wouldn't have mattered who his running mate had turned out to be. But I still wonder.
I would still like to think that she was picked because they honestly thought she would do well at the job, that she would be likable and powerful and able to hold the office.
But its getting harder and harder to think that.
Read for yourself
