It's my turn to weigh in on one of the dumbest campaigns ever to hit the United States. Of course, this is to be expected from an organization whose stated purpose is to help elect women who will fight for another woman's right to kill her unborn children. Yes, that would be Emily's List.
Their anti-Palin campaign is about as ridiculous as their support for abortion. They call it Sarah Doesn't Speak for Me--and they even have a website. With all that's going on in our nation, they decide to focus on one person--you know, the one they call insignificant, irrelevant, inconsequential. Since they won't divulge how much they're spending on this joke, it's hard to tell just how unimportant they find her!
Not only is the video they created juvenile; it's laced with lies meant to depict Governor Palin in the light in which they want people to see her. Honestly, it doesn't serve them well at all. It's downright embarrassing--for them. But what do you expect from these shills who only support and defend women who think like they do. And who would want to do that?
Is their declaration that Governor Palin doesn't speak for them, much less think like them, supposed to be an insult? My goodness, if I were the Governor, I'd send them a thank you note for recognizing as much.
Here's to the hope that they will soon catch up with the rest of us and realize that they don't speak, either, for the majority of Americans.
Below is the painfully catty, deceitful, and just plain stupid video they managed to put together:
Check out what a few others are saying about this Emily's List fatuity: Tammy Bruce, Ace of Spades HQ, and Ed Morrisey.
In fact, I'll include a bit of the Morrisey post here. Might as well call out the lies in the video right here. He writes:
However, Palin and her “Mama Grizzlies” don’t hold the ridiculous positions that these masquerading moms claim, as anyone with an ounce of sense and the ability to read can quickly determine for themselves. Republicans wanted to pay for an extension of unemployment benefits through previously allocated funds rather than incur more debt on grizzly cubs, or the cubs of the cubs and then their cubs as well, as Democrats ended up demanding.
As far as eliminating “health care,” as Emily’s List’s fuzzy logic claims, one would have to believe that “health care” was nonexistent in the US before Barack Obama took office. Maybe those who belong to Emily’s List really have been in hibernation their entire lives, but health care has been around a while. No, really, you can look it up. In fact, most Americans preferred the existing system before ObamaCare’s takeover of the sector. Speaking of hibernation, none of us really give a damn who shares the cave, but after watching this video, we imagine they must either have the same cognitive issues as these performers, or the same honesty issues.
