Did I tell you guys about my FEMALE coworker who insisted that she'd never vote for a woman president because "women are too emotional!"? Yeah--despite her science degree and all her smarts, she's obviously a tool of the patriarchy, helping to keep men in power and women in the kitchen. Oh well.
So the other day, Faux News is on in the work cafeteria (of course). This same coworker says, "You know, I said I'd never vote for a woman, but this Palin lady is really great! She's tough and smart, and I like her!"
My head almost exploded.
So I said, "Um--she has no real experience. She knows nothing about global politics. She's anti-choice, pro-death penalty, pro-guns, and pro-big oil and big bidness. She's terrible!"
My coworker, who's a staunch repug: "Well, I like her. She is the thing that will save McCain's campaign!"
My head exploded.
