Madeleine Albright smacks McCain and Palin upside the head

She accuses both of them of distorting the truth – which is precisely what they did – then endorses Obama-Biden.


At a rally on Saturday, Sarah Palin offered an argument for supporting the GOP ticket. “There’s a place in Hell reserved for women who don’t support other women,” the Alaska Governor said, claiming she was quoting Madeleine Albright.

Albright responded to Palin’s remarks in a statement to the Huffington Post today: “Though I am flattered that Governor Palin has chosen to cite me as a source of wisdom, what I said had nothing to do with politics. This is yet another example of McCain and Palin distorting the truth, and all the more reason to remember that this campaign is not about gender, it is about which candidate has an agenda that will improve the lives of all Americans, including women. The truth is, if you care about the status of women in our society and in our troubled economy, the best choice by far is Obama-Biden.”

Weird times.
Palin spoke at the Carson center [in southern California] last weekend.
She was introduced by Shelly Mandel, the president of the LA chapter of NOW.
Who said that Palin stands for women’s rights.
The right of a woman to marry a man.
The right of a woman to carry a fetus to term whether or not she wants to, even if that fetus is the product of rape or incest or if the fetus has an incurable painful fatal disease.
The right of a woman to lie and manipulate to become vice president.
I’m not concerned about Obama associating with an educator who used to be a radical.
I am concerned that we are a nation ruled by ignorant idiots.
