Words of Wisdom from Unexpected Sources

"There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women."
-Madeleine Albright,
Former Secretary of State and Ambassador to the U.N, on the side of a Starbucks coffee cup

I first came across this quote at Pondering Penguins, cited in a Christopher Hitchens article (see my post on the history of political mudslinging). I've thought about using it on a post regarding Madeleine Albright and Senator Palin. Especially right after reading Albright's Palin-Biden debate analysis.

Today, Marie's Two Cents encountered someone "folksy"; a certain someone with a wink that launched a thousand lipsticks. Go discover who, and then congratulate Marie on her good day. She had quite the adventure.

That old battleaxe wouldn't help a woman like Sarah Palin if she were on fire. Let's be real here. The NOW crowd only helps liberal women. The conservative women don't even register on their To Help List.

So Wordsmith: Marie tells us she wore her "thongs" to the Palin rally. Did you give her your Flopping Aces thongs?

I saw Ms. Albright once in Santa Fe. She was wearing an all-white outfit from head to toe: cowboy hat, western shirt, fringed skirt and cowboy boots. It scared the crap out of everybody. Not an attractive look.

Well, obviously you don't "get" that Madeleine HalfBright meant that for all OTHER womyn, NOT Conservative Sarah Palin. Sheesh!

I still want to know about Marie and the thongs.

Well...she said she got blisters, so they couldn't possibly have been FA thongs; besides, Curt never sent me my pair. How're yours working out?

Another great personal account from a Hillary supporter.
