One of the things that the McCain campaign has complained about is their perceived sexist treatment of Palin. I'm not saying it might not exist. But the McCain campaign also has to take some responsibility for this. As the Time article shows, McCain supporters are not above using sexist rhetoric when it's to their advantage.
"We too are saturating Facebook,"says York, whose group [a college Republican group in Florida] has reached out to younger voters with slogans like "Vote for the Hero and the Hottie," referring to McCain and his running mate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
So Palin's great selling point is her looks? Can you be any more demeaning? And this if for real. You can buy shirts, stickers, and mugs on the Internet with the slogan. So it's a bit hard for the McCain campaign to complain about sexism when they're more than willing to use it to buy the votes of young men.
