Tony Abbott has a blog piece he’s written in his latest mailout, and I’ll present it here to read. I will note that while Palin has Abbott’s support, he didn’t proofread his writing, because he spelt “Palin” as “Pailin”, as well as “Hilary” instead of “Hillary”. He’s right though, the Left are more willing to support a leftwing man than a conservative woman, despite fighting for more-than-equal rights for women, and a supposed need to shatter the “glass ceiling”.
TONY ABBOTT – LIVE BLOG – THE HYPOCRISY OF THE WOMEN’S MOVEMENT
Reaction to Governor Palin’s vice-presidential nomination suggests that the women’s movement remains highly selective about the women it supports.
If Hillary Clinton put “18 million cracks in the glass ceiling”, only to be rebuffed by the Democratic Party establishment, maverick conservative John McCain smashed it by picking Sarah Palin as running mate. Is the women’s movement satisfied? Not a bit. The usual advocates of women in public life have changed their tune worrying about whether Palin could be both a mother and vice president. The double standard is appalling, especially as it’s being deployed by the feminist left against a woman. As Rudy Guiliani responded, no one asks whether Obama can be both a father and president.
But how could this be?
Sarah Palin’s pending nomination for Vice President is exposing the depth of the cultural divide between Middle America and the leftists who have taken over the education, media, and cultural establishment of our country. – Thomas Lifson.
A nasty surprise indeed if OB pulls this off.
