Shakesville: John McCain picked Sarah Palin just to piss you off

When John McCain picked Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential nominee, it truly brought the country together. Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Anarchists, Communists, and every one else all stood up as one to say "What the Fuck??" Why was Mr. "Country First" picking an unknown political newbie from the Republican political cesspool that is Alaska?

With the election approaching, however, McCain has finally fessed up his reasoning for picking Palin, someone he didn't know whatsoever: It was a cold political calculation designed to counter the "liberal Feminist agenda."

John McCain is making a bold political stand here. Between this, his air quotes mocking "women's health" and his his overall hatred and disrespect of women in general, McCain is running under an admitted campaign strategy of "Women? Fuck you."

To be honest, however, all McCain has done is earn his own teaspoon in the fight for womens' rights. Because after a year of good works by so many feminists here at Shakesville and other feminist blogs and groups, the best reward that can be received is to see McCain and Palin lose in a massive landslide. And he seems dedicated to insure that no woman, or male that respects women would ever consider voting for him, regardless of their views on other issues.

Now someone get out the Liberal Feminist Agenda and make sure we have "Destroy John McCain's vision of the future" in there somewhere.
