    The point was characterizing women by terms aimed at the fact they are women. You don't like it aimed at Sarah, but it's okay aimed at Meg. I don't think it's okay either way.

    Inalienable-rights> values.

    Money is fine, especially if it is elected: that means she can't be bribed as easily as other potential leaders of her type can be.

    It's definitely okay if the candidate supports the legalized killing of 1.6 million children each year before they're born. If Meg Whitman was a man, then I would have used the term, 'bastard' instead. Lowlifes deserve the labels they get. And Barack Obama is such a lowlife, I would get banned if I were to describe him with the terms that I really want to.

    You're a real Johnny One Note on an issue that is just NOT an issue in California.

    It's the social conservatives in the Republican Party that make me side with Republicans most of the time. If the Republicans abandon the social issues, the message becomes too hollow for me to even consider. Don't get me wrong, I like having my taxes cut and I like my government small. But that alone just isn't enough to get me to vote Republican.
    A government that is kept within Constitutional constraints lacks the power to impose social engineering. The feds would have no say on abortion (which would make it a state issue again, which means that the legislatures would actually have to resolve it to the satisfaction of the electorate, but given the fifty different electorates, that's also going to be an issue). By the same token, the "fiscally conservative, socially liberal" set don't understand that big government isn't wrong because it's expensive, it's wrong because it erodes the values necessary for representative government. Policies that redefine families or otherwise destroy non-governmental institutions weaken the ability of the people to govern themselves without outside interference.

    That makes perfect sense. Mikey's not gonna like it.
