Redneck Sarah?

On a blog that is done by a friend of my wife, she just posted on her blog that she thought Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks shouldn't back down from her views and is a hero for speaking out. We could debate for days the difference between government censorship and the consumers of country music just being upset that the Dixie Chicks were being derogatory to the POTUS outside of our country during a time of war and just decided not to buy their albums anymore.

But what really got to me was a quote she has with it from Gloria Steinem..."Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke. That's their natural and first weapon. She will need her sisterhood."

The thing that amazes me about that quote is that my wife's friend is the first person to deride Sarah Palin. Is that hypocritical? You be the judge. But with that being said, here is a video about the woman that will be the next VPOTUS.

She is fun. Everyone says it is time for a change and time for a black president. I agree. I would love positive change and a black or non white president but Sarah Palin is also a positive change and being a woman she brings change. She also respects the laws of this great land. Obama is not the right change. He may bring hope to minorities who have been waiting for this day to come but he is only going to crush their dreams if he actually wins. Go red neck woman!
