"This is Funny. These New York Liberal Semi-Woman Have Become Totally Unhinged Over Gov.Palin !"
Old style feminists, totally unhinged by Palin's existence, in touch with their inner axe murderer.
Senator McCain's selection of Governor Palin of Alaska as his running mate, which was hailed in some quarters and met with skepticism in others, is sparking intense reactions from some New Yorkers, who report being driven to fits of rage and even all-consuming panic.
CAUSING A STIR The Republican presidential candidate, Senator McCain, and his vice presidential running mate, Governor Palin, arrive at a rally yesterday in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
"All of my women friends, a week ago Monday, were on the verge of throwing themselves out windows," an author and political activist, Nancy Kricorian of Manhattan, said yesterday. "People were flipping out. ... Every woman I know was in high hysteria over this. Everyone was just beside themselves with terror that this woman could be our president — our potential next president."
Ms. Kricorian allowed that she was among those driven to distraction, upon occasion, by Mrs. Palin's nomination. "My Facebook status last Monday was, 'Nancy is freaking out about Sarah Palin yet again,'" the writer said.
A posting on a New York-based Web site for women, Jezebel.com, spoke of unbridled anger. "What I feel for her privately could be described as violent, nay, murderous, rage," an associate editor at Jezebel, Jessica Grose, wrote just after the Republican convention wrapped up. "When Palin spoke on Wednesday night, my head almost exploded from the incandescent anger boiling in my skull."
Ms. Grose was not alone. More than 700 comments poured in, many from women who said they were experiencing a visceral hostility to Mrs. Palin that they were struggling to explain.
"When I see people crowing about her 'acceptable' speech last Wednesday ... I literally want to vomit with rage," a comment from Anibundel said.
"I am shocked by the depths of my hatred for this woman," another commenter, CJWeimar, wrote.
"It is impossible for me not to read about her in the newspaper in the subway every morning on my way to work and not come into the office angry and wanting to kick things," a commenter using the name ChampagneofBeers wrote. "My boxing class definitely helps."
Even some prominent figures admitted to being overcome by anti-Palin feelings. "I am having Sarah Palin nightmares," an acclaimed playwright and writer, Eve Ensler, wrote on the Huffington Post. She said she was disturbed by the chants about oil and gas drilling during Mrs. Palin's speech to the Republican convention. "I think of rape. I think of destruction. I think of domination," Ms. Ensler wrote.
Experts and the women themselves offered differing explanations for the extreme reactions.
"I think a lot of women felt insulted by the idea you could just take any woman," a longtime editor of women's magazines, Bonnie Fuller, told The New York Sun. "A lot of women feel it was a very cynical decision. ... What got some women's backs up was the idea she didn't earn her stripes. It's been so hard for so many women to get ahead both in business and in the political worlds and she just seemingly slips in."
Ms. Fuller also said she and other women were troubled by Mrs. Palin's decision to have her daughter, Bristol, 17, on stage at the Republican convention, despite news reports about her pregnancy. "She was putting tremendous pressure on her 17-year-old daughter by putting her front and center at a time that has got to be very traumatic," the editor said.
Ms. Kricorian said some of the agitation was because women felt Mr. McCain was pulling off a political trick, using the novelty of selecting a woman to hide her conservative social and religious views. "The women thing is a ruse. ... She was chosen because of the evangelical thing," the writer said. "It's weirdly stealthy that she's not talking about it."
Ms. Grose posited that some of the anger was because Mrs. Palin, a former beauty pageant winner, resembled a high school homecoming queen. "She has always embodied that perfectly pleasing female archetype, playing by the boys' game with her big guns and moose murdering, and that she keeps being rewarded for it," Ms. Grose wrote.
I wish I had the cute wherewithall with words, that some 'wordsmith's' possess to encapsulate, just how huge a 'poker tell' this is of a Code Pink moonbat!
I think when you hear her crack about calling Sarah a "moose murderer", you get a peek into the vast expanse of damage that decades of communist propaganda, cloaked behind the 'infiltrated' likes of PETA, Sierra Club, Save the Whales and Greenpeace, have done pyschological long term and in some cases irreparable damage. to the cognitive centers of these folk's minds.
In these 'warped' schizo's minds, people come in second behind animals and nature, and as such to make a more perfect world, we should be eliminated.
With this 'operable mindset' in place, they have no trouble actually wiping out 40 million babies with abortion, and are truely horrified to see Sarah and her daughter with a fifth baby and one grandchild on the way. I think the Secret Service protection for Sarah 'and' her family needs to be increased. These insane moonbats are far more likely to try to kill Sarah, than someone killing Obama.
""All of my women friends, a week ago Monday, were on the verge of throwing themselves out windows,""
New orders, STAT! Open all windows!!
Obviously these poor excuse for women don't remember some of those horrific pictures of 9/11.
None of them jumped, to our great dismay.
They always promise, but never deliver.
