Sarah Palin, feminist?
No. Palin is not a feminist. And god help us if she does become president (I really don't think she will even try to run and I hope she doesn't, if she did run then there would be a chance of her being in charge, scary). Palin has shown time and time and time again that she can stand up for woman's rights and civil rights, but won't. You know, I think fox news will be good for her, that way she does not have any actual political power. Even is she was pro-choice and good on same sex marriage I still would not support her as president. Why? Because she can't lead. She does not have the life experience to lead, and I don't just mean age. She does not know what it is like to have a childhood where you grow up working class (or poor) and not get whatever you want (or be not be able to see Russia from her house). She does not know what it is to be poor and have a baby with down sydrome. She does not know what it is to have to hear the word "gay" used as a synonyme for "stupid" daily and be gay your self ("...a bunch of gay friends", my ass). And the worst part is that she does not try to understand. Obama does. She does not know enough about the world in general to lead. She may clame to be a feminist, but when it really comes down to it, is she? No.
