I'm saying "if" because I know she is going to. But hypothetically, if she didn't run, it would be the most disappointing thing that happened to women in a long time. If she didn't run, it would mean that everyone at NRO who think women should leave the room, won. It would mean that the Left who are terrified of strong women, won. It would mean that her enemies who did everything to smear her and her family, won. It would mean that she would be reduced to a "kingmaker" for the men. It would mean a return to business as usual in DC. It would mean nothing will ever change in our country. It would mean Obamacare will be in full effect and never repealed. It would mean our country would go down a shit hole so deep it would take a revolution to get it out.
But she is running, so I know there's still hope.
No one is writing about what this means to women. Have you noticed how many people are so absolutely convinced she's not running? Does the dinosaur media think women would be happy just to be a kingmaker? Do they think we should be satisfied with that, while the boys run the country? Do they think about what that would do to Palin's own personal dignity? I honestly believe they think she should be happy she got as far as she did and not try to accomplish anything more. Beggars can't be choosers, you know. They are so ancient. They are so condescending and chauvinistic. I'm wholeheartedly talking about the Right elite establishment, too. People who are that convinced she's not running don't know anything about her. They haven't read her books and don't understand her passion. She's not going to play second fiddle to anyone (no VP ever again, no kingmaker) and she loves this country too much to not try and stop the bleeding if she can. She knows she has a chance so she's going for it. The people who think she's not running are just hoping she doesn't.
Liberal women do everything to protect men, coddle them and forgive their mistakes. They luuuurve Bill Clinton to this day. That's why it's taken so long for a liberal woman to run for President, in my opinion. The men of the Right are bewildered by women who do it all. They don't understand them, and want them to go away. I'm sensing that the men of the establishment Right are starting to loathe Palin and Michele Bachmann for being strong, take-no-prisoners women.
Even though I don't support Bachmann politically at all, I'm glad she's taking the bull by the horns and running for POTUS in 2012. She needs to strike while the iron's hot, just like a man in her position would do. It's good for women. When Palin runs and wins the nomination, a true paradigm shift will occur. Thank goodness.
