A colleague of mine sent me an email which undoubtedly came from some right-wing political hack. He also prefaced the email by asking why Obama called Palin a pig. We (people who can follow a simple sentence) already know that Obama never called Palin a pig. Just smoke and mirrors from the Republicans. But the forwarded email attempted to do a Freudian analysis of Obama and concluded that Obama hated women because of his relationship with his mother. What was his proof? Not much really, just that his mother had abandoned him, and so Obama had to hate women because of it. But that got me thinking. Based on action and words, which candidate was most likely to harbor a hatred of women?
John McCain had done the following:
He likes to joke about a teenage girl's looks. (Asking why Chelsea Clinton is so ugly)
When a supporter asked, "How do we beat the bitch? (referring to Clinton)," McCain did not condemn the statement, but instead called it an "excellent question."
He makes jokes about women being raped by gorillas and liking it.
He called his wife a "cunt" in public.
Offered up his wife for a topless beauty contest at a biker rally.
As for Obama, I don't know. If you know of anything, please let me know.
