Sarah Palin Sexism Watch: Gary Kamiya & Salon - More Sexist than Chris Matthews
Gawd. I wish Salon was a rightwing publication. But of course the sexist publication is on the left. Next week, I'm sure Salon will have a vile racist article featuring Senator Barack Obama shining a white man's shoes and eating watermelon. The racist article will be authored by low-life Gary Kamiya.
But this week low-life Gary Kamiya and Salon are rolling around in the misogyny with an adolescent dream article about Governor Sarah Palin as:
Sarah Palin is trying to seduce independent voters. But she comes across like a whip-wielding mistress who wants to discipline a naughty America.
For the die-hard Republicans who lusted over Palin at the convention, her whip-wielding persona was a turn-on. You could practically feel the crowd getting a collective woody as Palin bent Obama and the Democrats over, shoved a leather gag in their mouths and flogged them as un-American wimps, appeasers and losers. "Drill, baby, drill!" the chant ecstatically repeated by the GOP faithful during Rudy Giuliani's speech, acquired a distinctly Freudian subtext after Palin spoke. The more Palin drilled the Democrats, the more hotly the base yearned to drill her. (We will leave it to shrinks to determine whether the GOP hardcore has the hots for Palin because she's reaming the Democrats, or because authority-worshippers tend to have secret fantasies of being reamed themselves.)
Palin comes across not as a fantasy pinup, but as a dominatrix.
And right there on the same page with low-life Gary Kamiya's sexist rant about Governor Palin is a bright blue ad for Barack Obama. Gee, if Obama gets the votes of all the sexists, how can he lose?
Sorry Joan Walsh. I am not going over there to read you anymore.
