As "Pink" put it very succiently she doesn't like women, and has nothing to offer the woman voter.
Nothing to offer the liberal/progressive
If you lib/progressive women would poke your heads out of your lib/progressive circles, you would notice a large contingent of independent and conservative women voters who are far removed from your beliefs.
I'm not trying to be difficult here. But it doesn't take a lot of effort to find these women, supporters of gun rights, school choice, and other conservative positions.
Some of these women (gasp!) even oppose abortion.
I know the first instinct is to mock these women, belittle them and make fun of them, but does that really solve anything?
Palin is the reason McCain has taken a lead in the polls. Many women have identified with her, it seems.
And I would venture they are more common in this country than those who share your lib/progressive beliefs...
