Sarah Palin and I have one thing in common. We both did the beauty queen circuit. I won, she didn’t; though she did Vogue and I didn’t.That leads the second paragraph. Why is that in there? "You know, everyone is saying she's pretty. Well, I'd just like you to know that I'm pretty too. Just want to put that out there." In adult world where everyone has long since graduated from junior high school, that makes for strange reading.
Then Taylor goes on to say that McCain must have thought being a beauty queen was enough qualification for the Vice Presidency. That's a bit sexist, isn't it? To take a woman who has accomplished as much on her own as Palin and write her off as a mere beauty queen just because she's attractive?
Then there is the odd charge that Palin is against "women’s civil rights" and "rabidly anti women’s right to self-determination." What? How's that? Palin seems more like the embodiment of women's self-determination, and last time I checked, I and the rest of womankind already had civil rights.
If this shallow analysis is the sort of material that the Left plans to throw out against Palin, they could just be more succinct about it and say, "Don't know what to tell you. We've got nothin'."
UPDATE: I was going to do a post running down each objection to Palin, but Ed Morrissey has already done such a good job of that that I'd rather point you to his post.
In case I haven't made it clear, I love the Palin pick. Early on, I had hoped for her to join McCain on the ticket but didn't have much hope that it would happen. I am extremely pleased with this unexpected outcome.
