Sexism, yes, but more important, RACISM at it's worse.

Minnesota GOP: Republican women are hotter than Democrats
By Rachel Rose Hartman

A local Minnesota Republican Party operative yesterday waded into one of the signature political issues of our time: "Who's hotter — Republican women or Democratic women?"
The Senate District 56 GOP Party posted a Web video yesterday laying out its position on the hotness question. It leads with images of prominent Republicans such as Sarah Palin, Michelle Malkin, and Michele Bachmann; the soundtrack, naturally, is the Tom Jones chestnut, "She's a Lady."
Then, there's an abrupt switch to the other side of the aisle. The theme is subtly conveyed with the strains of the Baha Men hit "Who Let the Dogs Out?" Photos of Michelle Obama, Janet Reno, Rosie O'Donnell and Hillary Clinton flash on the screen.

OK, the idea of comparing one party's female leaders to the other on the basis of who looks best is juvenile, lame, childish and just plain goofy at best. It also shows what a sad state one's party must be in as far as female leaders go if you've got to present them as mere sex objects for physical comparison.

There is something about this whole story however that just reeks of typical right wing racism; how can they use an image of Michele Obama to try and persuade people that democrat women are ugly? Well, we all know hopw they can do that. They do it because they are playing to a segment of America that no matter how beautiful the woman, if she is African-American, she is ugly to them. Yes, the really low down, knuckle dragging white supremist crowd is their obvious contingency and obviously where the Minnnesota Republican Party is firmly entrenched.
I mean come on, Michele Obama is nothing but beautiful. Her face, her body and even more enchanting, her total demeanor . . . the way she walks, talks and acts. She is simply the most beautiful woman to hold the position of first lady in my lifetime. We have never had a first lady with such dignity and confidence that I can remember or even think of. How could anyone possibly find it fitting to show an image of her and refer to her as a dog? Only a white supremist who would find any African-American woman ugly. Only a white supremist who, no matter how brilliant, intellectual or capable the person, they would reject them because they are Black.
Fuck these piece of shit bastards who really, are a reflection on all white America when they, in their position of power put forth such horrendously recreant propaganda. I try not to hate anyone and to have compassion for every lost soul, but these pricks really make it difficult.

How low do these white supremist sons of bitches have to get before America simply says "ENOUGH!"

The main point is that women are free to achieve on their own merits in liberal world. In conservative world, it doesn't matter how qualified, overqualified or under-qualified you are: you just got be purdy. It's ironic that Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann would get nowhere in liberal world as they're fucking idiots. But in conservative world, where success is stacked against women and minorities, they get to be leaders. Someone could write a whole doctorate on this shit!
