Worst piece of flare at the RNC

Just saw this on someone’s blazer during Palin’s speech tonight (still in progress).

How fucked up is this? Democrat or Republican, whatever and whoever, a woman’s (or man’s, for that matter) appearance is completely irrelevant to her political capabilities or qualifications.

Politics is not the Maxim “Hot 100.”



  1. I hate this! And I also hate having to defend this woman from the sexist “OMG hawt” comments I hear about her. I hate her politics, I’m not voting for her, and I have SO MANY problems with everything she does, but I have to speak up when I hear this shit. Dammit!

    Not only is it flagrantly misogynistic, “hottest VP” isn’t much of a compliment when your competition is a 65-year-old dude.

    I also caught the button nad have been searching all over the internet to find a copy of the image. Yeah she is a victim of sexism, from her own damn party.
