Just about the time I was ready to declare DU sane again they start pulling this Bullshit. I find it funny that the very reason she was chosen was her gender and yet you can't say anything negative about her because of it? How many women run for public office and beat you over the head with the fact that they are women? How many of their supporters do the exact same thing? Shit during the Democratic National Convention every time a speaker was tanking they would just shout out the word "women" just to get cheap applause. There are several reasons to despise Sarah Palin and her gender is Not one of them. But her gender won't stop me from giving her the Count treatment either. She's wrestling with the big folks now. When I refer to Ted Olson as a "cock-sucker" most men are smart enough to figure out that I am not calling all men a cock-sucker nor am I calling him that because o his gender. I call him that because He's a cocksucker. So if I refer to Palin as a Bush whore don't take it personally either. unless you are Palin... and then I don't give a shit.
Edit: Let me just say it is a minority of posters on DU I am referring to you. The ones who yell sexism no matter what you say about her.
