John McCain: I pick a Creationist

Now I know he really is nuts.

Ms Squeaky spouts her rhetoric about something – not really sure what, but her name is Palin – that’s PAY-Lin. She is from Alaska, that’s near Canada for those in the US who don’t have a clue who she is.

She is under investigation and only met John McCain once, you could see the love in his eyes when he introduced her – he was so nervous it must have been like the first time he shagged Cindy.

She is a woman who is, surprisingly, against women’s rights. That will get all the Hillary Clinton supporters on-board, then.

She is a member of the PTA – well was – before coming a mayor. Oh – and she sold an aeroplane, and stopped a bridge being built. GO SARAH!

Now – McCain is 72, happy birthday John – that means if he drops dead, she will become president.

Joe Biden could take on the mantel if anything should happen to Obama – but the Beauty queen, as president? Erm…OK! 😯

Not that this really means anything – what she also spouts is that children – in America – should be taught Creationism in school. Yep – that is correct. This is what she says:

And earlier that year, the Anchorage Daily News reported that Palin said the following about creationism at a debate:

“Teach both. You know, don’t be afraid of information….Healthy debate is so important and it’s so valuable in our schools. I am a proponent of teaching both. And you know, I say this too as the daughter of a science teacher. Growing up with being so privileged and blessed to be given a lot of information on, on both sides of the subject — creationism and evolution. It’s been a healthy foundation for me. But don’t be afraid of information and let kids debate both sides.”

This, when you really, really think about it means, taking into account that McCain is going to fill the Supreme Court with right-wingers, will mean that evolution will have to be taught at the side of Creationism. That will bring all those Hillary suppoters over, then!? Erm…nope.

So is it that she was brought on-board to keep the evangelical up to speed and want to vote, not for him but for her. Did he bring her in because she is a woman? As my wife says: “Did he think he could replace one vagina with another and get the same respect?”

Says it all really.

As of today – I do feel sorry for those who wish to vote Republican – I think John McCain, the maverick(?) has lost his marbles!

    Uh, surprisingly, all (these) women look for in a candidate is whether or not the candidate in question is… a woman. They don’t care about policy — they just care whether she’s a woman or not.

    And, for Sarah’s supposed “record” of fighting corruption, she sounds quite corrupt herself. Dismissing a public safety commissioner just because he refused to fire a state trooper on the grounds of a petty custody dispute sounds like the abuse of power. And if McCain pushes up daisies while he’s in office, we get… her? Not good.

  2. Julie P says:

    It is truly sexist to even consider that a women, any woman, would consider voting for a person just because she has a twot. Only a Neanderthal would believe such tripe. It really goes to show exactly what McCain thinks of women.

  3. leapsecond says:

    For clarification: (these) women in my comment above meant the PUMAs and miscellaneous Hillary supporters of the female variety. For some reason, they just want a woman. I don’t know why: I’m not a woman.

  4. I believe your wife is correct. This is a cynical ploy of the worst sort by Oldy McMoldy. Also, if you’ve been following this election from start to finish, you know that many of these so-called “Clintonistas” and PUMAs are actually Republican “Operation Chaos” operatives who would never, ever vote for Hillary Clinton. Google “Rush Limbaugh Operation Chaos” and “Ohio open primaries” for more info.

    @leap: I’m a woman and I’m still trying to figure it out.

    Creationism in school!? No, NO, HELL NO!!

    @pied: I didn’t mean all women. It just seems that the vast majority of the Hillary supporters (PUMAs) that McCain’s targeting with this pick are radical feminists, and, as such, are rabid for a woman in the white house, whatever her political leanings are.

  8. Kate says:

    OK, the PUMAs were going to vote McCain anyway, this is just a way to add to the PUMA base.

    What are her qualifications? She’s a former beauty contestant, is for offshore drilling, wants to overturn Roe V Wade, is under investigation for firing a trooper who wouldn’t fire an underling (male) who was involved in a messy divorce and suing for custody. She resigned from a position with the state before because they wouldn’t let hubby (a big shot in BP oil) to drill in the wilderness preserves in Alaska. She’s an “outdoor-woman” which is someone’s way of saying that she likes hunting and rafting, not that she’s in any way pro environment. She opposed the declaration of polar bears as an endangered species.

    Let’s face it. She’s PERFECT for McCain. She’s got the middle age woman vote. She’s hot, he’s not, so he’s increased the “good looking celebrity” factor in his campaign. She appeals to big oil, is a mother (of 5!) and is an evangelical’s dream.

    She’s Huckabee with breasts and a Miss Congeniality sash.

    The right will eat her up.

    Leapsecond… as a woman I’m offended by your remarks. As a woman, I also have to admit you’re right. There are plenty of women out there who buy into this sort of thing: either those who will do anything to have a woman in the executive branch, or those women who will identify with her as a religious, conservative woman in service to her husband (and BP oil) and to God.

    McCain obviously doesn’t care about who’s right for the office. He’s just in it to win by whatever means.

  9. leapsecond says:

    Well, you explained my position more eloquently than I could in the end. Though I certainly didn’t intend to offend, I’m not going to act like I didn’t think it was going to happen; anything anyone says nowadays will be offensive to somebody at some point.

    I just feel like this is to capture the radical feminist vote, you know, the kind that operate on the paradox that men and women are totally equal except women are inherently better than men, in, say, the field of politics (or any other field, for that matter). But if we’ve tried to establish a society in which people are equal regardless of gender, why is it so special that Sarah is a woman in the first place?

    Listen, Brett, I wasn’t necessarily referring to you as a Neanderthal, I’m a tad pissed off that McCain chose a woman as his running mate. It is blatantly obvious that it’s a ploy and a gimmick to get the “woman vote”. Sure there are some women out there who will vote for a woman just because she’s on the ballot, but then I think I could say that about any voting group. Living in the south I’m wondering how many white male southern good ol’ boys aren’t going to go and vote at all. I’ve heard enough talk over the years about they would never vote for either a woman or a black person. Ever. Yet there they are, on both tickets. In McCain’s case it’s as obvious as the nose on your face what he’s trying to do, get Hillary’s voters and shore up the conservative vote. On the latter point he has zero credibility with them and a lot of core Republicans. He took Palin on trying to appease both camps.

    “Did he think he could replace one vagina with another and get the same respect?” LOL. I couldn’t have said it better myself.

  13. lunawolf says:

    I agree with the people above who say that the woman who say they would rather vote for McCain than Obama because they don’t get to pick Hillary are Republican. I knew from the moment they started saying that that NO REAL DEMOCRATS would EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER vote for John McCain.

  14. Mike says:

    It’s definitely a poor pick, and skillful media management by the Obama campaign could turn her presence into an extreme negative. For them, it could be a gift.

    Will, just a reminder about Idionsyncratica stuff – the challenge is up on the 1st, and you also should update your blogroll to cover everyone involved. 🙂

  15. Will Rhodes says:

    No problem Mick. 🙂

  16. leapsecond says:

    Again, your eloquence is far superior to mine, Julie. I think we agree much more than you think — I, too, think it’s a ploy to get the Hillary voters that are still on the fence — but my fear is that the move will succeed in getting support for the McCain campaign. I mean… look here if you have any doubt that those rabid PUMAs will support Palin. It scares me.

  17. northbritain says:

    Completely agree, Will.

    The idea of a creationist – second in charge to an elderly President, who is no stranger to those wacky ideas himself – fills me with dread.

    Not so keen on her environmental policies either:

    Funny,do anyway of you realize that your voting from what you heard from the media?The media is controlling what you vote!
    Pick someone else,quit being a sheep.GO RON PAUL!

  19. lunawolf says:

    Wow, Jeret. How presumptuous of you. In fact, sir, I didn’t choose my candidate from what the media told me. In fact, I rarely watch TV, much less the news juggernauts. My dad introduced me to Barack Obama through a lovely book called, “The Audacity of Hope,” which, after reading, inspired me to look up this young senator from Illinois, check his voting records, find more information, and eventually choose to throw my full support behind him. I’m sure many people don’t take the route I take to pick a candidate, but I’m just as sure that a majority of voters do. I’d like to know what turned you onto Ron Paul and where you first heard of him. Please, do tell.

  20. Mike says:

    Pick someone else,quit being a sheep.GO RON PAUL!

    It’s funny, really; for all their talk about how individual they are and how everyone else is a sheep, all the Paulites seem to use exactly the same phrases and expressions. It’s almost as if it were all a pose.

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
