OK, so can we stop talking about how feminism and feminists should rally behind Sarah Palin now?
John McCain, answering “Hasn’t Governor Palin become a drag on your ticket?”:
“As a cold, political calculation, I could not be more pleased. She has excited and energised our base, she is a direct counterpoint to the liberal feminist agenda for America. She has a wonderful family, she’s a reformer, she’s a conservative. She’s the best thing that could have happened to my campaign and to America.”
RealClearPolitics currently has Barack Obama in the lead in the presidential polls, with 286 electoral votes, compared to McCain’s 155, with 97 toss-up states. The news from the last three days includes North Dakote becoming a toss-up state, and Montana easing from solid red (McCain by a large lead) to only pink.
