Think about it: she was this close to being the dem nominee for president. She put up with all kinds of fucking sexism and bullshit. Yes, her campaign was run by morons, but she was an inspiring candidate (unless you hate her, which is your choice). She was going to be the first woman to be nominated for the presidency, and perhaps could've been the first woman president.
Now, thanks to the rethugs' cynical moronic decision to put Moose Alaska/Half-Baked Alaska/Caribou Barbie/Barracuda/Freakshow Sarah Palin on the ticket with McFossil, SHE could be president. Fucking enemy of freedom, enemy of women, tool of the patriarchy Sarah Fucking Palin could be a heartbeat away from the presidency. And what did she do to deserve this (er...) honor?
Did she go to law school?
Did she work for women's causes?
Did she fight for women's rights?
Did she endure a fucking war on the campaign trail for over a year and a half?
Nope. She shot a moose, sucked the rethugs' dick (among others), completely sold her soul (if she had one) to greedy anti-environmental big-oil money-first bullshit and lies rethuglicanism, and BLAM -- like a shot to the flanks -- she's one more stolen election away from being the first woman VP and then President, once McFossil has the big one and kicks it during the first big crisis (or if they're out of steak sauce in the White House kitchen, or whatever).
Think what you will about Hillary Clinton. Hate her if you want, for whatever reasons you want. But if there's one woman in the world--one person in this fucked-up election--who deserves some pity, it's Hillary Clinton.
Hillary could've taken women's issues to the forefront and changed our futures and the futures of our daughters.
Palin would put us back into the Dark Ages.
And Hillary's watching all of it happen, right along with the rest of us, knowing that she had a chance to prevent the whole bullshitty thing from even happening.
