Palin blew it, you see. She made an unforgivable “choice.” She publicly expressed, through both word and selfless deed, that she values all people during every stage of development, from conception to natural death. Most egregiously, she refused the sacrificial rite of passage into authentic womandom. She declined to slaughter her own unborn child, Trig, to goddess feminism – even after doctors told her he was one of those Down syndrome throwaways. Steinem called her own abortion a, “pivotal and constructive experience.” I guess, according to these nasty ninnies, we simply can’t have a Vice President who “lacks experience” in “pivoting” and “constructing.”
Think about it. Sarah Palin is poised to undo much of what the left has accomplished. Imagine her as a role model for millions upon millions of young girls around the world. Imagine those young girls embracing life over death on the abortion issue – embracing true feminism over angry, abortion-centric feminism. They absolutely can't have that and will stop at nothing to destroy her. We expect liberal bias from the media and other leftist elites. But this time around, the bias is off the charts. It's finally exposed liberals for who they truly are, and we have Sarah Palin to thank for it.
The reality is that – except for those who, like Gloria Steinem, think the preamble to the Declaration of Independence should have read: “All women are endowed by mother earth with the inalienable right to eat their own young” – Sarah Palin has connected with average Americans. Especially with women. Most notably (oh glory day) with Hillary Clinton supporters.
