Steinem says: "Wrong woman, wrong message"

Soon into watching the Charlie Gibson interview the other night, I was already revving up to write a piece on Sarah Palin’s proclivity for wide-eyed, zealous missions that will cause more people to die.

Gibson was asking her about her obvious inexperience and hubris. She responded with what she values: Not blinking and Not thinking.

This world is getting too fast for people my age.

While I was making some mental notes of what I was planning to write on this idiocy, some techie was already posting the very same segment from the interview on YouTube.

Everyone can now see the terrifying reality of this potential future president who would be in a position to not blink and not hesitate our country into more wars, wired as she is to commit missions rather than diplomacy and believing that victory in Iraq is actually definable and possible.

Panicky then and panicky still that our good ol’ bean Barack Obama, modulated college prof that he is, has not been doing nearly enough to win any moderates over to his side, I’ve been thinking with a fair degree of consistency that we are all doomed.

Until someone sent me this Gloria Steinem essay this morning, which appeared in the LA Times.


I can’t say it erases my dark premonitions for the November elections, but perhaps there’s time for enough people to come to their senses and nullify the stupidity.

ADDITIONAL COMMENT 9.14.08:
Ednotes posted a link to the incredible anti-Palin rally that's just taken place.

Lots of pics, video, and a whole bunch of signs like this one:

Below is Defenders of Wildlife blurb. They are trying to get an ad on t.v. They say:

"Have you ever heard of aerial wolf hunting? It's a brutal practice. Wolves are shot from low-flying aircraft or chased to exhaustion, then shot and killed at point-blank range.

"Governor Sarah Palin, the Republican nominee for Vice President, promotes this barbaric practice, exploiting a loophole in the Federal Airborne Hunting Act to allow private wolf killers to shoot down wolves using aircraft. We have to get the word out about this!"

Here's their video.
