Sarah Palin is the most prominent woman in the Republican Party and the finest feminist role model currently walking on terra firma. Is there anybody who comes closer to realizing that feminist maxim "You can have it all" than Sarah Palin?
I wish we lived in a world in which women didn't play into the most negative and cliche stereotype out there about us, and picking on the pretty girl because people like her for being pretty is embarrassing, not just to the women doing it but to all women.
Like Palin did for John McCain, Ryan represents a transparent plea for credibility with the Republican base.
Let's pause a minute before we accede to the supposed sterling qualities of Mitt Romney's newly announced running mate and look a little closer at this election cycle's version of Republican Party wunderkind and base energizer.
Ryan's got the juice alright, but it's the kind which makes only the party's base salivate. He's a star, but given his extremist views it's more porn than rock.
When I first heard the news about Mitt Romney's choice of a running mate, I had a sneaking suspicion that this was the Romney camp's solution to the w...
The fact that Romney did not go for the safe choice in a vice-presidential selection is a token of his lack of confidence. He knows he cannot win based solely on his own appeal. The choice of Paul Ryan is a sign of weakness not of strength.

Sarah Palin may not be speaking at this year's Republican convention in Tampa, but Lisa Ann, the adult film actress, and star of Hustler's political parody porn Who's Nailin' Paylin, is slated for some stage time.
"Sometimes I drink my coffee and look through here and I see countless nations prancing and running there, dontyaknow. People run around like the hunger games and at the end of each competition national anthems are played.. "
The usual gang of idiots over at MAD Magazine decided to throw their hat in the ring of politics once more and for reasons still beyond me they asked ...
What people like Palin are saying is that I should be tolerant of their intolerance.
Thankfully, I cannot imagine what it is like to witness a nationwide gathering to voice (or chew) their support for discriminating against me. But I would hope my political leaders would never give the thumbs up to a rather cruel public spectacle.
