Vote for me or go to hell! I have a vagina.

Sarah Palin never ceases to be brilliant and put politics in perspective (cough).

Sarah Palin made an appearance in Carson, California yesterday.  In 24 minutes, Palin was able to “take the gloves off,” slam Obama, remind Californians that California is “Reagan country,” lead the audience in her favorite chant (Drill, baby, drill), and threaten female voters with hell if they don’t vote for her.  Why wouldn’t you?  She’s folksy, cute (she likes to wink) but tough (she likes to shoot wolves from helicopters but claims Barack is too “radical to lead” this country) and has the most important element of all: a vagina.

“There’s a place in Hell reserved for women who don’t support other women,” the Alaska Governor said, claiming she was quoting former Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

Here we go again.  Fear tactics.  Vote for me, women with vaginas.  I have one, too!  If you don’t, you’ll burn for eternity.

Too bad she misquoted Albright. Albright refuted Palin’s misquoted statement and confirmed what we have know for quite some time: McCain/Palin distort the truth and will do anything to distract the public from the issues.

Albright: 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.

If she had gotten it right and said, “There’s a place in Hell reserved for women that don’t help other women,” she would have revealed her final destination at the end of days and not those of that oppose Palin’s message and are planning on voting for Obama/Biden.

The "billion dollar abortion industry" wants to "mislead" you…

…and so does this advertisement Laura Frankel responded to at Culture Wars: The Abortion Edition. It’s an advertisement from the folks that support Measure 11 in South Dakota.

It ties into something I wrote about briefly in a previous post about how many South Dakotaeans view the mass importing of pro-choice advocates to their state to be emblematic of the East Coast elite “abortion industry” who, according to this ad, make billions on abortions every year. That industry consists of non-profit groups like NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and the ACLU. They have what looks to be a dying message from Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who is given the title of “Last Surviving Member of NARAL” (as though that awful pro-choice disease wiped out the rest, but, he survived, because he changed his mind…they don’t say that, I’m just reading a wee bit into it) claiming NARAL’s goal was to, “export our pro-abortion mentality across the land”. Kind of like those crazy Eastern pro-abortion advocates now trying to spred their pro-abortion policies in South Dakota. He goes onto say that one of their strategies was, “to deny what we knew to be true, that an abortion kills an existing human being”. Watch for yourself, he’s clearly reading cue cards to the side of the camera, but this a good ad! Creating native suspicion of anyone who comes from the “pro-abortion industry” to the state is brilliant. It goes beyond simple religious politics and taps the core of suspicion and fear: it’s us versus them. I don’t like their message, but they are using media and fear politics to their advantage in a major way!
