I've resisted piling on Sarah Palin. This campaign isn't really about her. It's about what kind of country we are and what kind of country we hope to become. I don't want Palin's country as far as I can discern it -- but she's not really the point. John McCain, rather crudely, tried to use her as bait for both wacko conservatives and for women proud of their accomplishments. She seems to genuninely appeal to the former -- the latter have rapidly become deeply offended by being offered such a shallow individual as a role model.
No, we women didn't wait 232 years for Sarah Palin.
