Fearless Females of the Year


 

I could have called this post Two Tough Broads, but really, that sounds so negative, and who can resist an excuse to link to Cosmo in a political post.

Love them or hate them, here are two women who really don’t care who thinks they should just shut up and go away. If this politics thing doesn’t work out, Pelosi and Palin could team up with Hillary and give lucrative seminars on how to grow a thick skin.

Why Democrats Don’t Dump Nancy Pelosi (Politico):

“Talk to lawmakers privately, and many will freely acknowledge that from a public relations perspective it makes little sense for Nancy Pelosi — who made history as speaker and is now fighting hard to be minority leader — to remain the face of Democrats.

But many of those same lawmakers will cast their votes for Pelosi in this morning’s closed door Democratic caucus meeting — and the embattled San Franciscan will almost certainly win the validation she seeks…”

 

The Palin Network (NYT Magazine):

” “I am,” Sarah Palin told me the next day when I asked her if she was already weighing a run for president…”

(…)

“In truth, few are underestimating Sarah Palin anymore. In that endearing manner of the Beltway echo chamber, the prevailing narrative of Palin in 2009 was that that she was an incompetent ditz. This year’s story line is that she is a social-media visionary who purposefully circumnavigated the power-alley gasbags and thereby constructed a new campaigning template for the ages…”

Fearless Females of the Year

  1. Palin is a force to be reckon with, and it is getting scary!

    I was reading the newspaper this morning about her daughter Bristol still a contender to win "Dancing with the Stars", I haven't watched, apparently she is terrible but she keeps getting the votes, and mommy keeps showing up to support her in the show, she is getting the tea party people to vote, she wants to make a point that she has the power and the tea party people wants to make a point too, that they are behind her, and it's working, her kid probably will win!

    I love Pelosi, I hope she stays!!

    • Maybe one day, Prime Minister Ford will be making a state visit to President Bristol…

  4. Hahaha, that would be something, Tommy boy spending the day in Langevin with a fan in his desk saying, "Luuuuke, I am your father ".

  5. Pelosi re-elected in a landslide, but Palin will never be president.

  6. Wealthy old liberals like Pelosi will be swept out of power in California in a few short years by the conditions they created, they won't be replaced with conservatives but with firmly hispanic political socialists who are social conservatives – San Francisco will not be the anything goes gay friendly city in the future, hispanics won't put up with that sort of thing. Pelosi might think she's doing God's work but she's destroying the Republic.

    • There are gay hispanics.

      And if the republic can't be wiped out that easily, it isn't much of anything to begin with.

  8. Sarah Palin is a great leader who will bring the people to her. She's too smart to go cap in hand to Washington and play their game, the Ivy League obviously won't allow that to happen, so she'll bypass them until she gains power and then kick their silver-spoon butts – just like she shook up the old boys political network in Alaska.

    Sarah Palin took on the oil companies, insurance companies, the old boys network, the bureaucracy etc. – and she won all those battles.

    She's absolutely more qualified than the current President, that was obvious in 2008 – and it's undeniable now.

    • LOL she has no support in the country beyond the looney-toons wearing teabags.

  12. Personally, I don't think Palin even wants to be President. I think she's only in it to shake things up and be King-maker.
