Sexism (For Real This Time!): "Is She Experienced Enough?" is Sexist Code for "Is She Tough and Manly Enough?"
— Ace

That's why they're pushing this absurd notion that Sarah Palin's two years of governorship doesn't adequately qualify her, but Tim Kaine's (Democrat!) two years did qualify him.

Being liberals, and having pissed off the PUMAs, they can't come out and ask if she's tough enough, flinty enough, if she's got the stones, if she can order men into battle to die. So they're going to insinuate it by asking about her "experience."

It's actually a valid question, not just on the substance but as to the perception.

Perception first, Sarah Palin isn't just a woman. She's an adorable, bubbly, sweet woman. None of that actually means she's not tough or serious -- but people have their preconceptions, and most people that painfully cute are not thought as tough or cagey or, when necessary, ruthless.

(I actually think those perceptions are wrong, largely -- I think people who are cute aren't perceived as cagey and ruthless, even though they actually might be quite mercenary, because their looks are disarming and tend to engender trust, not suspicion. No one ever thinks a puppy deliberately crapped all over your new couch, but of course the little bastard knew exactly what he was doing. But those soulful eyes let him get away with blue murder.)

As to the actual facts-- I don't know if she's "tough enough" or not. I know I've liked everything I've heard from her since I started hearing about her six months ago. I know she had the stones to take on the Alaskan political establishment -- including her own party -- an expose corrupt officials she came across.

That's not "nice." It's noble, but not "nice." Nice is trying to tear down walls and build bridges -- all that pussy-shit Obama talks about -- not rip someone's guts out for lacking integrity and breaking the law.

I don't know how far that unsentimental righteousness goes, but certainly she's not the creampuff her looks suggest.

Nevertheless, partly because of sexist bias against women (let alone cute women), and partly just because we require all our presidents to have a minimum threshold of steely ruthlessness (except if they're Democrats, of course; look at the soft sob-sisters running this year), Governor Palin does have to convince America she's got the grit for the job.

And it's not just men who harbor doubts about female presidents -- it's women, too, and perhaps even more than men.

She surprised me today. She was confident and unfazed, direct and sharp. I'm looking forward to being surprised further. But I guess I do need to be surprised further, as do many voters.

Adorableness has its advantages, but it has its drawbacks too. She's got to show some real iron. And maybe cutting apart that soft-handed starched-shirt Joe Biden woud be a good start.

On a related note... Here's some sexist bias-- some say women might be all in favor of women achieving great things in principle, but when it comes to specific women making concrete achievements, suddenly they're a bit lukewarm on the whole idea of sisterhood.

Jealousy and envy, I'm talking about.

Is that real? Will this actually backfire and drive women away?

Attack Dog: Actually, a good start in dispelling the "too nice, too sweet" impression would be to play the role of the attack dog well. If she's thought of as being 25% a ball-breaker... well, win-win.

Burn on Barracuda: I wanted to google some of Palin's attacks against the Dems to remind myself of how well she did.

Allah has one, wrapping "fearmongering" on energy production around Joe Biden's pencil neck.

She has a sweetness to her as she "attacks." (Attacks in quotes, because of course what she's saying is both true and vitally relevant; but anytime a Republican notes a Democrat's votes or quotes it's an "attack," most often of the "intolerable and unacceptable" sort.)

I have to deduct style points, though, because that bubbly, sweet, gosh-darn sort of manner just doesn't seem serious or dour enough to me.

I know we've got that in spades from Mr. Warmth McCain, but still... I think she'll have to ease up on the sweetness and get a bit more grim.

On the plus side: Everything she says is right and informed. The only knock is the style one.

1 She is way more of strong person that Obambi, that is clear as a bell. We shall see how she handles the debates, I think she will do well against Dirty Joe, she has actual convictions and the ability to express them without handlers.

Sarah Palin is such an individual; such a self made woman.  I think she epitomizes the woman that the Women's Suffrage movement envisioned.

Post a couple of the pics of her in Kuwait with the troops. Tough and hot.

10 Oh I get it, the Russian would have waited until she, like all women (according to today's psychiatrists), goes into menstrual psychosis. Yes, in today's we-can-lock-you-up-with-a-diagnosis world of UN-derived Public Health entities, all females are BY DEFINITION psychotic during menstruation. You will find this in the Journals. So, if I've got this right, if she goes nuclear during a crisis, it is because of her biology? Maybe the Women's Protection Amendment should give women, girls, and Ladies the BIOLOGICAL as well as the Constitutional Rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. I'll do a quick edit and post it .htm .

That's been my experience in trying cases.  Women jurors almost always are the harshest judges of women plaintiffs or defendants.  I have never figured out exactly why, but that's what I've seen.  Whether I represent the plaintiff or the defendant, if my client is a woman, I always try to strike the women panelists.

12 The left is upset because Governor Palin has really big brass ones(metaphorically speaking) compared to obammy and bidensky. Where I grew up in North Central Montana(not in the tourist ads), Sarah Palin is a dream girl. I think the left is just upset because this lady can actually do things that mean something.

17 She took on the Alaska good old boys club and kicked their asses. Her list of interests and accomplishments indicate a very bold and self-confident woman. She may have a very sweet and attractive appearance, but I wouldn't want to have her pissed off at me.

18 The more I think about this pick the more I have to take my hat off to Mav. The longer the Dems, the big tented, liberal, we are the world, anti old white man party, keeps bringing this issue up, the more they are going to create fissures in the largest part of their party. It is absolutely toxic for them. I have worked with and for women throughout my business career. Any one who has, knows they can be as tough and ruthless as any man, in some cases, more. They walk into every situation thinking they have to be that much better, that much tougher than any man just to be seen as equal. And that feeling is universal trumping any political or social view. Please, please, keep throwing gender into the mix. There is only 50+ percent of the population to piss off. Palin or die.

20 McCain should welcome the comparison of Obama's experience with Palen's.  The weaselly do-nothing professional politician motivated by self-interest vs. the public-spirited reformer motivated by conviction.  It's a no-brainer.

21 I don't want "adorable bubbly and sweet" in the WH during wartime. As a Christian I believe she should be home with her small children, especially the child with Downs Syndrome- not traipsing around the world and spending long hours on the job. Entirely inappropriate choice. Men will vote because she is attractive- is that sensible? Al Qaeda is laughing at this very moment, I guarantee it. McCain passed over tough, seasoned candidates for a bit of fluff and we will pay dearly.

Tough enough?  Complete Bullshit.

Puts her husband on a sled to be world champion in the ididerod (sp).  That takes strenght.  Guys die doing stuff like that.  Takes guts to stand by your man and let him do something that hard. 

And sending her son to Iraq?  Not tough at all.  Nope.  What a gutsy lady.  Let him go and be a MAN.  That takes real strength.

I'll show you how tough she is.  Ended the speech with God Bless you all and God Bless America.  Fighting words with most MSM pundits and liberals, but I repeat.

No Dems will cross over and vote for McCain because his VEEP wears a skirt. Party loyalty trumps breaking the glass whatever.

The same people who bitch about the 'disrespect' Hillary got from Jug Ears will now trash Palin with extra relish and not notice the contradiction.

The personal attacks on Palin and her family will go from lame to downright obscene in about a day.

Maybe a few will be jealous and backstab, but I think most of it is on the issues.   I've NEVER liked Hillary.  OTOH, while Condi was NS advisor I liked her even though she made me look like a slackard. (I've cooled since she's been at state.) 

I really LIKE what I hear about Sarah Palin.  I'd love to see her as VP.  She'll never get the votes of  feminist "my body - my choice" voters, but then they'd never vote for a pro-choice republican anyway.  I think true moderates and independants will like her.   

I think she does have some toughness.  I (unfortunately) get all teary both happily and sadily that doesn't play well in state leaders and I didn't see any misty eyes in Sarah today. 

I like firearms more than most women, but you won't catch me hunting.  I have no desire to take an animals life.  If others choose to that's fine, but there aren't a lot of women who are that tough.

32 Just keep pushing the "experience" angle, you fucking donkey idjits. She has more executive experience than anybody else on the ticket. She was mayor of a town of 9,000 more people than Zerobama ever was. And she is governor of one of only 57 states.

Oh, I forgot, Obama has executive experience from his days as a "community organizer," whatever the fuck that is.

In addition, Palin (and her husband & children) are all involved in competitive sports.  That makes anyone "tough."

35 >>No Dems will cross over and vote for McCain because his VEEP wears a skirt. Party loyalty trumps breaking the glass whatever. I agree for the most part. Not that many PUMAs are coming across the border despite what they may be saying now. But there is another aspect. If they get pissed enough, they may not vote at all. This was and is Mav's biggest problem, base apathy. It may not be as good as a positive vote, it doesn't suck. Plus, and so many people seem to miss this, there are more Independents out there than either Dems or Republicans. They are the real prize.

37 Sarah Palin is just about as tough as they come. Think she goes out on the commercial fishing boat and stays inside on the rainy, cold or wet days because it would ruin her makeup? I'll bet she's worked harder in her life than brak and biden put together.

Betcha neither Obambi or Biden have ever done that, and they'd probably wet themselves if they were put in that position.

42 I doubt people will write her off as an executive because she is a woman. Although it depends on the person, from what I have seen during my lifetime women tend to be as capable as men in this sort of situation and I do not see any major difference between the two sexes that would lead to one not being as capable as the other as an executive officer. A man may not necessarily be interested in following a woman into a battle, but I doubt very many would be worried about women in the civilian leadership.

48 I'm not too concerned about her appearing sweet and bubbly. Women who seem sweet can get away with a lot more, perception-wise, when it comes to sticking it to someone. That'll come in handy when she goes for Biden's throat in the debate. She'll be able to smack him around while avoiding the dreaded bitch label.

53 The leftys are jealous because none of their hags can be described as sweet and bubbly.

As far her driving women voters away, I addressed this yesterday in threads and there is a possibility that she will tweak the envy bone in women. BUT, she presents herself as sincere and smart and that will go a long way to overcoming that. Seriously guys, it's the fucking bimbos we women don't like. She also has a manly man, personable and good looking husband. That also, goes a long way.

That being said, I would not mind at all being the meat in a Palin sandwich.

The GOP guy just finished answering a final "is she experienced enough" question by saying she'd need alot of work to prepare for the debates but would probably be a quick a learn. And the bitch thanks him and says something along the lines of, "Thanks, [his name], now go home and spend some time with your kids."

Totally unscientific and make of it what you will:

I watch Letterman. Occasionally he asks the audience who's voting for Obama (waits for applause) and then who's voting for McCain (waits for applause).

It was always more applause for Obama. Except that, in recent weeks, McCain is getting the greater applause.

No one ever asked if H!llary was tough enough to be Prez- it was assumed by the suckup media that she was. I think they were mistaking screeching hellbeast bitchiness for presidential timber.

Margaret Thatcher proved that a woman pol can have balls. I'm sure Sarah has the intestinal fortitude to handle the job.

PS- I hope the McCain people warned Sarah just exactly what she's in for...

Posted by: Kevin at August 29, 2008 04:37 PM (OEF4E)

62 I'm going to have to say "no" on the jealousy issues.  I like Palin because I believe she's right for the job. I didn't like Hillary because I think she's wrong for the job.  I did like Rice because I thought she was right for the job. Just like I liked McCain because I thought he was right for the job, and I don't like Obama because I think he's wrong for the job.  Etc, etc.

As a woman, okay, great, I'm happy in theory that we're making progress, but I'll be happier still when a woman is running and NOBODY NOTICES.  Where a woman candidate is as common as a man-- where she's just another candidate, not remarkable because of her gender.  Nobody comments "wow, progress for women!"  Progress is truly progress when it's not a big deal anymore, when it becomes normal and expected.

I guess I would call myself a feminist... maybe that's why the "is she tough enough" talk kinda pisses me off.  Would people say that about Romney or Pawlenty? I don't think so. I don't think people would be saying that they had to prove they were steely and tough enough to send troops into battle or anything like that.  And yet we do for her?

While the mother card is being played, she's having to send her SON to Iraq... so yeah, I think she can handle it.

THere are definitely unambitious, loser women out there who are bitter and resentful towards the financial and professional success of ambitious, intelligent beautiful women.

They're called Democrats

THis is not a play towards fembots. Even the dumbest GOP strategist knows there is nothing short of resurrecting susan faludis dried out pussy and running it as a VP that would get their votes to our side.

This is a play for fence sitting white women who "feel" like they want to vote for a Dem b/c "Bush is an idiot" and the "economy is awful" but have major doubts about Obonehead

More executive experience than obama, biden, mccain, and hillary, put together.

Bravo, McCain.  Best.  Choice.  Ever.

Scuse me while I whip this out.

68 I'll disagree with you slightly, Amy.  Conservative women aren't going to be jealous of Palin (I'm terribly envious of her life, but I'm more inspired and pleased than anything else!).  The man-hating/leftist/lesbian separatist women are 17 shades of red with jealous rage and will do everything in their screechy powers to trash Palin.  Similar to Jesse Jackson hatin' on Obama--if a self-made woman gets elected to the vice-presidency, that partially disproves all the oppressive patriarchy/victimhood stuff they've been bleating about for as long as I can remember, and they're out a job.

OK, maybe it's not jealousy as much as flat-out malice.  Hrm.

Ace,

She gives off a Sarah Connor vibe.  So if Bill Ayers tried to bomb the Capitol again and she were sitting in the VP's Senate office, she could handle herself.

70 Anybody who hunts moose in Alaska gets my vote. Has anybody here ever been 15 feet from a moose on a trail in the wild? I have( in Alaska as a matter of fact) and let me tell you the damn things make Clydesdale horses look small. (I got the hell out of its way as fast a I could.)
