Another Girl Against Sarah Palin

Iowa Lt. Gov. Patty Judge had a few words about Sarah Palin at The Harkin Steak Fry. Iowa Politics reports:

“Sarah and I are both girls. We both wear glasses. We both have families that we’re very proud of. But Sarah does not believe in a woman’s right to reproductive choice and I do. Sarah doesn’t believe in a woman’s right to equal pay for equal work and I do. Sarah doesn’t believe in a solid science-based education as the foundation of truth and learning and I do,” Judge said. “Sarah is taking a job that will put her within a heartbeat of the presidency of my country, and that scares me to death.”

Judge also poked fun at the details that have become widely noted and reported about the array of outdoor activities Palin enjoys in rural Alaska.

“Sarah knows how to field-dress a moose. I know how to castrate a calf. Neither of those things has anything at all to do with this election. But since we know so much about Sarah’s special skills, I wanted to make sure you knew about mine too,” she said.

Judge dismissed the idea McCain surrogates have put forward about the possibility former Hillary Clinton supporters may throw their support to Palin.

“If John McCain thinks women are than stupid, he is wrong,” she said. “In summary, just because you have a pantsuit, that does not qualify you for the sisterhood.”

    Meanwhile, a brand new poll out this morning shows the State of New York now in play.  McCain/Palin are within 5 points of catching Obama in NY.  Also news that they’ll be opening up two campaign HQ in New York, one upstate and another in Long Island.

    It’s beginning to look like a landslide of near 1984 proportions.

    I agree 100%, just because she is a woman doesnt mean that I will vote for her.  Her views on issues are backwards, lets make progression not regress into the past.

    My prediction is that Palin will slowly be recognized as the dud she is. Not just for her views on issues (although that will be hard for many to stomach), but for her dishonesty and raw over-riding ambition. There’s nothing wrong with ambition, as long as you don’t let it get control.
    As Palin’s numbers slide, so will McCain’s, because those who were all gung-ho Palin will see that she never really had a chance and that they were pandered to and set up for a fall.
    BTW, I’m proudly from Iowa (Iowa is a great state to be from). All kidding aside, you can’t fool Iowans very often. Well, sometimes, but not all the time. And Obama’s way ahead there – something like 50% to 42%. Go ISU Cyclones!!

    She will be recognized for what she is–but there is no guarantee of this happening before the election. Unfortunately the voters he is picking up from the far right won’t care. They are immune to reality. However the more independent voters who currently shifted towards McCain/Palin might realize what is going on in time.

    Eric,

    Before you get excited about a meaningless poll, have you noticed how all the major polls are showing that McCain has already lost his post-convention bounce? If you think that an isolated poll showing McCain within five points in a firmly blue state means anything, how about the numerous red states where Obama is closer than that and has a real chance to win?

    Obama has an average lead of nine points over McCain in New York. McCain has a two point lead over Obama in Ohio. Which do you really think is more likely to flip?

    Polls currently show Obama with leads in three red states from 2004: Iowa, Colorado, and Virginia. This is enough to give Obama a victory in the electoral college, and several other red states are a toss up. In one week since the convention, Obama has shown a net gain of six on McCain in Virginia. The momentum is moving back in his direction, even in the former red states.

    The liberal media grossly underestimates Republican voter strength each election cycle.

    If Newsweek, Gallup and other Far Left polling sources are saying that the race is “even” you can bet it’s Republicans up by 5 to 10. 

    Of course, there’s the Democrat/ACORN voter fraud factor to consider.  But even with that, the Dems only gain 1 to 2%.  And most of that voter fraud occurs in southern California where the Dems routinely register illegal aliens to vote, and Mexicans coming in for the day at border crossings.  California is already in the Blue camp, so all that does is raise Dem overall popular vote numbers ala 2000 Bush v. Gore.

    Yes, there’s massive Dem/ACORN voter fraud in Ohio too.  But the Republicans are on top of that.  And in Michigan 5 ACORNers have already been busted.

    Honestly though, the one state where I do admit the Dem/ACORN voter fraud factor may be Virginia.    But I’d bet the RNC will soon be on top of that one, as well, even though they have been very slow to catch on in VA.

    Only you would see Newsweek and Gallup as far left. They have actually been quite close in national elections.

    Voter fraud? There are problems on both sides, but far more from Republicans. Hopefully we will get a fair count on both sides this year.

    If the polls are underestimating anyone this year it will be Obama. The pollsters themselves admit they are having problems this year because of not being certain as to who will turn out. If the young voters and new voters have a good turn out, Obama will get a few more points than the polls say.

    This was also the case in 2004. Kerry would have won if young voters turned out, but they followed usual patterns of not doing so. The primaries showed that this year could be different. If Obama can continue to bring in the new voters the way he did in the primaries he has the election locked up. That’s the huge if of this election year.
