a Lady as President?

What’s wrong with Sarah?

Sarah is a lady.

It was the image contrasting last year’s First Lady on the left and this year’s First Lady positioned on the right that made me realize my hesitancy with Sarah Palin.

Politics: always spinning, the truth is there, somewhere, usually tucked between the folds of the spun propaganda. The Left has made quite the investment in convincing US that Sarah is stupid. And they’re looking to spend more to discredit her, with the DNC currently raising money for attack ads against her. Shouldn’t take too long to figure out that the Left isn’t as convinced of her stupidity as they would present her, as they want you to believe.

I couldn’t quite put my finger on my hesitancy about Sarah. When considering the prevarication of MSM, political pundits and the DNC against her it became obvious that she is not stupid. Either she isn’t stupid, or the Piper on the Left is, for expending so much energy and money in paltering a truly stupid person. Or am I wrong, the Left really is that stupid?

Then I saw the Change picture, Laura on the left and Michelle on the right, and instantly knew why I was holding out in supporting Sarah. Sarah is a lady. She’s feminine. Can a Lady be an effective President?

Not every woman is a lady. Laura Bush is a graceful lady. As First Lady, Laura presented herself as well groomed, well dressed, as though she respects the people who look up to her. That’s Laura. Laura isn’t the first First Lady to be a graceful lady, but she is the most recent. Michelle, on the other hand, doesn’t hesitate to present herself rumpled and flippant. Laura filled her role as First Lady as a dignified lady. Michelle is extravagant in her nouveau riche position, yet all the gold in the world can’t make her the lady she is not. Michelle is filling her role as First Lady as, well, a pretentious woman.

When imagining a female President, isn’t it easier to picture a masculinized woman? What woman in power is, or has been, a lady, or even feminine? Few. Not recent women prominently in American politics, as Hillary C., Nancy P., Madeline A. or Janet N., hardly feminine. They’re women in power. Women, not Ladies.

It isn’t easy to picture a lady, feminine like Sarah, in the role of President, is it? Men like to look at her, and she’s smart. She’s sincere, likely the non-politician in her. She’s soft and cuddly, her edges feminine. Her administrative experience, tested decision-making, resilience to attack, etc., get lost when people look at her. Even with her glasses on she’s a sexy, feminine lady.

What’s wrong with Sarah? Sarah is a lady.
A lady can be every bit as effective as any man.
Especially a lady qualified as Sarah.
A Lady for President?
You betcha!

    I agree, there is a difference between being female and being
    a lady. Although I’m not sure the women you named weren’t
    at one time sexy and feminine. Isn’t it possible that politics
    changes women as it does men?

      That may be, about politics changing women. But it seems Hillary was emasculated before becoming first lady, and Eleanor Roosevelt seemed to have retained her grace. (But what do I know, as I never met either woman?)
      And Sarah has emerged after her several years in elected office as quite feminine.

      Maybe being President will harden her softness a bit, but I suspect she’ll still be a lady.

    Sarah would be a better president than the smoken choken token that stole the race. I agree, she is all she is total class with brains to go with it. Those that doubted her before were sucker punched by the lame stream media and Katie cutie’s interview. We will never know how much of that ended up on the cutting room floor. Next time Sarah controls the interview, all live and it would end her career. She is truly a dim bulb. J.V.

    Sarah has more class then Michelle could ever dream of having and she also has respect for her country and its citizens.

      The class Michelle wears is embarrassing. (But then, so is her husband, with all his America-bashing.) Maybe she hasn’t had the experience yet of being proud to be first lady, like the first time in her life she was proud to be an American. Maybe one proud moment is all she can handle.
