Does anyone have a friend/ family member who LIKES Palin?
Advertisements [?]
I do... a friend of mine, an intelligent and hard-working single-parent whom I admire and respect, considers herself an "Independent" (but I suspect swings Republican). She has not "come out" to me as a McCain supporter (she knows I am hardcore for Obama), but her 5 year-old daughter ratted her out and I am sure it is because of Palin. I asked her how she thought Palin did in the debate, and who she thought won... she said she thought Palin did "great" and had won. UGH. Of course, she didn't volunteer any of this-- I asked.

When she asked for my opinion (all this by email) I had to say that I love it when a VP candidate winks at the audience and acts adorable... that she had only set feminism back about 10 years, that her responses lacked substance, and then questioned why she schleps her infant around all the time and passes him around like a hot potato. My friend didn't respond.

Can anyone here relate?
