3. Poor guy!
If he believes that crap, he's delusional. If he doesn't, he's a loser. Personally, I opt for the latter. I think he knows he made a terrible mistake and he's scrambling to make it work.

5. Liberal Feminist Agenda
You mean stuff like...
"Equal pay for equal work,"
"The right to not have to depend on a misogynist,"
"Equal opportunity in any endeavour,"
"Control over one's body and health."
The list is endless.
Just ponder the opposites of any of these and countless other thoughts.
Oh yeah, don't forget, the root word of liberal is shared with that of liberty.

9. Sounds like he's just repeating Rush Limbaugh - very presidential!
Edited on Sun Oct-19-08 03:42 PM by Democat
Why bother voting for McCain - next election Limbaugh should run himself.

All extremists, all the time.

6. "As A Cold Political Calculation"
Do my ears deceive me, or did McCain just admit that the selection of Palin is nothing more than a "cold, political calculation"? Isn't that the primary criticism of his selection of her? Unbelievable. The man is a disaster.

8. If Obama said Biden was a "Cold Political Calculation"...
The election would be over as the media trashed Obama to no end.

McCain says more outrageous talk radio extremist things every day and the media doesn't care - in fact, they do everything they can to support McCain.

Imagine if Obama said half the crazy things that McCain and Palin said - the race would have been over long ago and Obama would be destroyed.

Somehow, with his friends in the media, McCain can spew right wing talk radio bullshit all day long without being called on it.

25. That hit me, too, I thought he was being sarcastic or something at first...
"It was a cold political calculation, I could not be more pleased" :wtf:

also :

"...she's a reformer, she's a conservative" ??? Reformer...Conservative? Isn't that some sort of contradiction?

And the "liberal feminist agenda" should put the issue of hillary-votes for mkkkain to rest for good, if it ever was an issue...

That guy is such a trainwreck from every perspective.

10. This is desperation.
If he ever felt his choice of Palin would appeal to women as a bloc, it was obvious from the start that he was (I'll put it kindly) mistaken.

Now, he's reaching only for a narrow cross-section of women -- and bigoted men.

14. Why didn't he just say FEMINAZI like his/their hero Limbaugh does?
Shit, just go ALL THE WAY with it you woman-hating, mysogenist walking heap of pigshit.

REAL MEN DO NOT HATE and OPPRESS WOMEN. They're not that INSECURE and have no NEED to.

17. That's what we women call a "little man" ...
... a man who is supposedly some kind of "hero" (even if only in his own mind), who is SO INSECURE that he has to CONTROL women to feel secure and strong. "Little men" beat women, verbally, emotionally and physically abuse them, cheat on them (Hi CINDY!), deny them (via legal, legislative and financial means) life choices, seek to limit womens' life choices, and they deny them equal pay for equal work, and equal opportunity for financial parity with men.

John McCain is a "Little Man"

And I'm sorry, but he's NO HERO. He's just an insecure little man.

Pffft!

18. As opposed to the "little boss" or "mini boss" which is Japanese slang for penis.
:rofl:

But seriously, yes, John McCain is an insecure "little man". Your first paragraph sums him up neatly, in his overall attitude toward women. Good thing women vote!

27. He's rotting from the inside out...
it's the idea of a person's outward appearance being a
reflection of their inner being.  He's repulsive with a bleak
little soul and heart, and it is being reflected physically
for all to see.

20. So what is the counter to the "Liberal Feninist Agenda" anyway?
Militant women determined to remain barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen??

21. Pay for their own evidence kits when raped?
Actually there are women like you describe tho I am not sure how militant they actually are because that would defeat their determination to submit to their husbands in every way possible. I peeked at the Christian Exodus group's site as they are buddies with Palin's husband's old friends at the alaskan secessionists group curious what they thought of her. They are not happy with her at all in the little bit I could stand to read.

26. Maybe because at least a segment is longing to bring back stoning and old testament rules
http://www.publiceye.org/magazine/v08n1/chrisre1.html

More broadly, Reconstructionists believe that there are three main areas of governance: family government, church government, and civil government. Under God's covenant, the nuclear family is the basic unit. The husband is the head of the family, and wife and children are "in submission" to him. In turn, the husband "submits" to Jesus and to God's laws as detailed in the Old Testament. The church has its own ecclesiastical structure and governance. Civil government exists to implement God's laws. All three institutions are under Biblical Law, the implementation of which is called "theonomy."

snip

Epitomizing the Reconstructionist idea of Biblical "warfare" is the centrality of capital punishment under Biblical Law. Doctrinal leaders (notably Rushdoony, North, and Bahnsen) call for the death penalty for a wide range of crimes in addition to such contemporary capital crimes as rape, kidnapping, and murder. Death is also the punishment for apostasy (abandonment of the faith), heresy, blasphemy, witchcraft, astrology, adultery, "sodomy or homosexuality," incest, striking a parent, incorrigible juvenile delinquency, and, in the case of women, "unchastity before marriage."

According to Gary North, women who have abortions should be publicly executed, "along with those who advised them to abort their children." Rushdoony concludes: "God's government prevails, and His alternatives are clear-cut: either men and nations obey His laws, or God invokes the death penalty against them." Reconstructionists insist that "the death penalty is the maximum, not necessarily the mandatory penalty." However, such judgments may depend less on Biblical Principles than on which faction gains power in the theocratic republic. The potential for bloodthirsty episodes on the order of the Salem witchcraft trials or the Spanish Inquisition is inadvertently revealed by Reconstructionist theologian Rev. Ray Sutton, who claims that the Reconstructed Biblical theocracies would be "happy" places, to which people would flock because "capital punishment is one of the best evangelistic tools of a society."

The Biblically approved methods of execution include burning (at the stake for example), stoning, hanging, and "the sword." Gary North, the self-described economist of Reconstructionism, prefers stoning because, among other things, stones are cheap, plentiful, and convenient. Punishments for non-capital crimes generally involve whipping, restitution in the form of indentured servitude, or slavery. Prisons would likely be only temporary holding tanks, prior to imposition of the actual sentence.


Those who belong to the worldview of Palin's churches believe that Jesus can't come back until they take over the world and make everyone live their way whether we want to or not. Now thankfully most of them aren't willing to risk their own hides yet trying to stone astrologers or 'unchaste' women but I figure one of these days someone will go off and we will have clinic bombings and other atrocities again when they get sick of waiting for the take over by someone like Palin or Huckabee.
