There's a raging conversation going on at the Trail at the Washington Post site over an article about a small group of 30 women who call themselves New Agenda. They are condemning NOW's endorsement of Obama/Biden.
A sampling of comments:
First, I am a middle-class white woman and this cliche of elitist, royalty-by-marriage women does NOT represent me. Furthermore, the reason I moved from supporting Sen. Clinton to supporting Sen. Obama is precisely because of women like this. The fact that they would support Palin-McCain, who stand against everything that HRC is for, tells me where their true allegiance lies and it's not to women.
Second, I am so sick of reading all the thinly veiled racist comments throughout the web, like the ones here, and hearing them on TV and radio. And these people call themselves Christians? Guess what? Jesus wasn't white. I can't decide if Country First means Money First or Race First, because it's hard to distinquish among those three as defined by the GOP ticket and its supporters.

As a woman with two doctorates, there is no question who the best intelligent candidates can be OBAMA/ BIDEN- they will continue defending women's right. If you are a self hating woman, who depends on hubbie to take care of you, can't think independently, or are racsist- it is obvious you don't have the brain to make intelligent decisions.

Liberal women hate Palin so because they are so jealous of her. She is so attractive and the majority of liberal women should wear a sack over their heads.

Here's a campaign slogan.
