November 4, 2008

Were you as insulted as I was that Governor Sarah Palin was selected as the Vice-Presidential candidate in the U.S. 2008 presidential race?

Just another pretty face?
Gosh, just a regular person?
And she thinks she’ll help break the glass ceiling for women?

Her lack of experience, her lack of curiosity, her lack of seriousness: I don’t want that aligned with women.
(By the way, I was for Hillary Rodham Clinton. An individual with extraordinary experience, seriousness, curiosity. And a woman. Because when more women are elected, women’s rights are treated like basic human rights. And good change happens for women. But not with the McCain / Palin ticket.)
I hope I get to think of new rants – not the U.S. government – soon.
