Michelle Obama: Don’t Vote For McCain Because Palin Is Cute

2868590770 e5bf6c47cc o Updated With Video: Michelle Obama   Dont Vote Because Shes Cute

Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic Presidential candidate, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., right, listens to Mary Henley during a forum in Richmond, Va., Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2008

In a thinly disguised SEXIST attack on Sarah Palin, Michelle Obama asked voters today to make their choice on the issues, not because, “I like that guy” or, “she’s cute.”

Might she be talking about Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin?

“I’m talking about me,” she said with a smile.

Barack Obama’s wife, however, is not on the ticket in the presidential election. Palin is.

Her remarks came at a women’s round-table on the economy as Democrats work to neutralize the appeal that Palin has brought to John McCain’s ticket for some female voters. They are doing so gingerly, so as to not appear sexist or invite another lipstick-on-a-pig tempest.

Michelle Obama told the audience her husband is only candidate focused on equal pay, health care, affordable college, teacher recruitment and other issues of concern to women. She said that’s what the election should be about.

“People shouldn’t make a decision this time based on, ‘I like that guy’ or ‘she’s cute,’” she said.

The line won a big round of applause. Before it subsided, she interjected: “And I’m talking about me.”

So, now Team Obama has unleased the wife of “The One” to attack Sarah Palin. First, it was “Lipstick on a Pig” and now “She’s Cute.”

Anyone see a pattern? Remember Sarah Palin’s primary qualification is “She hasn’t had an abortion?” Allah’s (Via MM) keeping track of the Obamas’ smears on Palin.

Flap guesses Hillary wouldn’t do their dirty work so they went to someone who would regurgitate verbatim their bile.

Now, will there be any feminist outrage?

Doubtful……

share save 120 16 Sarah Palin Watch: E mail Hacked and Family Photos/Voicemail Stolen   Who Was Behind the Hack? Was it David Kernell?
2867987296 e493f21b10 o Sarah Palin Watch: E mail Hacked and Family Photos/Voicemail Stolen   Who Was Behind the Hack? Was it David Kernell?

Who dunnit?

The blogosphere and law enforcement authorities are closing in and focusing on David Kernell, son of Tennessee Democrat State Representative Mike Kernell.

The son of state Rep. Mike Kernell has been contacted by authorities in connection with a probe into the hacking of the personal e-mail of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, Kernell confirmed on Thursday.

Kernell, a Memphis Democrat, said his 20-year-old son David had been contacted by authorities investigating the hacking of Palin’s personal email account.

The FBI and the Secret Service started a formal investigation on Wednesday into the hacking.

David Kernell is a student at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Mike Kernell said he spoke to his son on Thursday, as he does on a regular basis.

Kernell otherwise declined to comment, or discuss his son’s whereabouts and whether he was in custody.

The Sarah Palin e-mail hacker was the son of a Democrat Lawmaker.

Fancy that – a political “dirty trick.”

Flap knew his political radar was up for a reason this morning.

Ace has a flaming skull up and Rusty’s (My Pet Jawa) photo of Kernell is above and says the investigation is still in the evidence stage.

Gateway Pundit has more
including  a screen cap of his daddy’s website and Free Republic is on it.

Stay tuned…….

Update:

Michelle Malkin has more on the Associated Press and their lack of cooperation with the United States Secret Service on the Palin e-mail matter.

By refusing to cooperate with the federal investigation into the
hacking crime and publicizing the Palins’ other personal Yahoo e-mail
account information, the AP openly invited hackers to break into those
family accounts as well and endorsed illicit activity to raid private family photos.

The issues are inextricably linked, to borrow a phrase, and raise
questions about the propriety of AP’s continued flacking for Barack
Obama under the guise of objective journalism.

Don’t look for the AP to be the first to report who the REAL hacker is.

share save 120 16 Video Shocker: Race May Affect Presidential Race

Will race be a factor in the outcome of the presidential election?

There is talk in polling circles about the “Bradley Effect” and the inability of accurate polls in this presidential election cycle.

The term Bradley effect, less commonly called the Wilder effect, refers to a frequently observed discrepancy between voter opinion polls and election outcomes in American political campaigns when a white candidate and a non-white candidate run against each other. Named for Tom Bradley, an African-American who lost the 1982 California governor’s race despite being ahead in voter polls, the Bradley effect refers to a tendency on the part of white voters to tell pollsters that they are undecided or likely to vote for a Black candidate, when, on election day, they vote for his/her white opponent.

One theory for the Bradley effect is that some white voters give inaccurate polling responses for fear that, by stating their true preference, they will appear to the pollster to be racially prejudiced. The reluctance to give accurate polling answers has sometimes extended to post-election exit polls as well. The race of the pollster conducting the interview may be a factor into voters’ answers. Some pollsters believe that they do not receive deliberately false answers from white voters. The Bradley effect, these pollsters believe, is caused by pollsters’ failure to account for general political leanings among voters who are undecided between Democrats and Republicans.

Flap remembers the 1982 California race and proudly voted for Republican George Deukmejian. All of the California pollsters had African American Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley far ahead of Duke and Bradley still lost. It was quite a shock to the MSM who were all in the tank for Bradley.

Why?

Post-election research indicated that a smaller percentage of white voters actually voted for Bradley than polls had predicted, and that previously “undecided” voters had voted for Deukmejian in statistically anomalous numbers.

A month prior to the election, Bill Roberts, Deukmejian’s campaign manager, predicted that white voters would break for his candidate. He told reporters that he expected Deukmejian to receive approximately 5 percent more votes than polling numbers indicated because white voters were giving inaccurate polling responses to conceal the appearance of racial prejudice. Deukmejian disavowed Roberts’s comments, and Roberts resigned his post as campaign manager.

So, could this happen in the McCain vs. Obama contest? Will race affect the vote?

You bet. However, since most of the Republicans Flap knows always give the opposite answer to a pollster who calls it may be difficult to discern whether it is the controlling factor or just one of many. Obama’s lead cannot be too large to give solace to the Democrats. A close race spells trouble.

Just remember the final poll is on election day when the votes are counted.

share save 120 16 John McCain   Obama Didnt Lift a Hand to Avert Financial Crisis
John McCain’s latest campaign ad: Dome

John McCain in Iowa this morning blasted Barack Obama for inaction on helping America avert America’s financial crisis.

“Senator Obama talks a tough game on the financial markets but the facts tell a different story. He took more money from Fannie and Freddie than any Senator but the Democratic chairman of the committee that regulates them. He put Fannie Mae’s CEO who helped create this disaster in charge of finding his Vice President. Fannie’s former General Counsel is a senior advisor to his campaign. Whose side do you think he is on? When I pushed legislation to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Senator Obama was silent. He didn’t lift a hand to avert this crisis.”

Well, Obama did one thing. He sent out Joe Biden to say a tax increase would be patriotic.

How stupid is that?
