Update (11/9/08): I’m pleased to say that with the votes counted, I can demonstrate that most women in the United States of America who voted on November 4, did not fall for the Palin pander. Here are the stats.
Women made up 53% of voters this year. Among that 53%, 56% voted for Obama, 13% more than voted for John McCain.
Update (11/5/08): With the election of Barack Obama to the United States Presidency successfully concluded, I am hereby closing the doors on the John McCain Female Woman Hater’s Club. There will be no more inductees. However, keep your eye on this post because should any of these women in light of McCain’s recent defeat, come to their senses and declare their return to the ranks of self respecting women, I shall release them from their incarceration here.
If I see one more woman stumping for John McCain on TV, I think I’m gonna hurl. I’ve already expressed my great disappointment with these women who don’t seem to know a misogynist when they see one. I am now inaugurating The John McCain Female Woman Haters Club (named after The Little Rascals He-Man Woman Haters Club). Each time I see another woman publically displaying her ignorance of John McCain’s disdain for her and her kind, I shall add them to this Log of Shame. Should any of these women ever see the light, I shall remove them and congratulate them for being a proper role model for young girls throughout this great nation.
Our first three inductees are:
Update (9/22): In an incredible show of unjustified hubris, Carly Fiorina declared that no one on either party’s ticket could run a corporation. This coming from a woman who was fired for botching her job as CEO of Hewlett Packard. It might also be noted she left HP with a very golden parachute, a crime made all the more odious by our current national financial crisis. It is with great glee that I report to you that Carly will not be heard from again for the remainder of the election season. Pride goeth before the fall, Carly. May your struggle to find new work be as difficult as that of the many HP employees you laid off before your own demise.
Darragh Murphy, a leader of PUMA PAC is the worst kind of Female Woman Hater in that she hides behind devotion to Hillary as her reason for opposing Obama. If you want to be sickened to your stomach, watch this video from MSNBC’s Hardball.
Update 11/2:As we approach Election-eve, I doubt I will be admitting too many more inductees to our Club. Looks like Any Holmes made it in right under the wire. If there is one thing more confounding than a female supporter of John McCain, it is a black female supporter of John McCain. Not only is Amy clueless about McCain’s misogyny, she doesn’t seem to know that McCain consistently opposed the Martin Luther King holiday.
If anyone has any other candidates for this Log of Shame, please comment or e-mail me with the name and relationship to the McCain campaign.
