Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman pulled out big primary wins in California proving that money can still buy elections regardless of gender. Both of these first time candidates spent their own money to stand on the victory podium last night. Fiorina was also endorsed by political gadfly Sarah Palin.
Fiorina will take on Senator Barb Boxer, while Whitman will square off against former California Governor Jerry Brown.
Blanche Lincoln is one step closer to re election in Arkansas, while South Carolina is looking at putting another Palin backed candidate in the Governor's mansion in the form of Nikki Haley.
Haley is a Mark Sanford protege, endorsed by Sanford's ex wife as well as Palin.In Nevada, the tea party candidate, Sharron Angle won the right to take on Harry Reid in November.
On the surface the election of all these women looks like a good thing...a change in direction for the country. However, if you look at what they are saying, you know that Fiorina, Whitman, Haley and Angle are simply more of the same..
SOSDG....same old shit different gender
What these women all have in common are platforms that are violently anti woman and anti family. They are on record as wanting to abolish the Dept of Education, the Environmental Protection Agency, repeal Roe v Wade, and privatize or eliminate Social Security, among other things. They are not listening to the people, but they are listening to the men who have gone before them and who are still pulling the strings.
Bottom line...they are rich people who continue the “do as I say....not as I do” way of governance that plagues Congress now.
It's not the gender of the candidate that makes the difference...it's the platform...
Time to start listening and reading and researching and voting come November..
