Quote of the Day: The party of tolerance and diversity unmasked

In Denver, the main spoil Democrats offered to women was abortion on demand, not party power. No small wonder, then, that a Democrat leader Wednesday said McCain chose Palin, “whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.”

A ‘Macaca’ Moment For Obama? By INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY

Update 9/12/08: The National Review Online has an excellent article discussing the male/female pay disparity between McCain and Obama campaign staff.

How do they stack up?

“Based on these calculations, Obama’s 28 male staffers divided among themselves total payroll expenditures of $1,523,120. Thus, Obama’s average male employee earned $54,397. Obama’s 30 female employees split $1,354,580 among themselves, or $45,152, on average.

“McCain’s 17 male staffers split $916,914, thus averaging $53,936. His 25 female employees divided $1,396,958 and averaged $55,878…. One explanation could be that women compose a majority of McCain’s highest-paid aides. Among his top-five best-compensated staffers, three are women. Of his 20-highest-salaried employees, 13 are women.”

    That was a dumb thing for that person to say. She doesn’t speak for all of us or I thikn Obama either. I’ve heard a lot of dumb things lately on both sides.

    I suspect the “spoils” I am looking for are health care for my family, a better economic future, a nobler standing in the world, and a little hope.

    Happily, I have never had to think about abortion in anything but a theoretical sort of way.

    I don’t consider electing Palin to office a benefit to myself. As a woman, I will not vote for a woman, just because she’s a woman. That would be a ludicrous use of my vote. Don’t you think so?

    Voting for a woman just because she’s a woman? Not a wise or logical way to make a choice. The main point of the IBD article is that while the Democrat Party often portrays itself to be the champion of women and women’s interests, their actions don’t always match the rhetoric.
