Palin on ‘sexism’ and Hillary Clinton, Chris Christie's 'extreme' appearance

If Hillary Clinton ran for president, former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin would obviously not vote for her.

But she did sympathize with the former Secretary of State, and has some advice for any woman seeking the White House.

"She can expect that sexism, but you overcome it. You ignore it. You thicken your skin, you march forward with your agenda, your priorities, what you think is right," said Palin.

    So what is Palin's agenda? Get in front of cameras as much as she can and make a lot of money? There is nothing about Palin's beliefs or agenda that supports women.

    And I can expect some racial connotation whenever you open your mouth.

    And yet, this sow thinks lipstick keeps her from looking extreme?

    "You thicken your skin"

    Coming from the thinnest skinned shrieking banshee out there this is hilarious.

    "sexism"

    Dear Bible Spice: when we made fun of you for not answering Couric's question about which periodicals you read, it was because you were dumb, not because of your gender.

    Let's be real: some women are stupid, just like men. Some even hold public office, like Palin and Bachmann. Don't like to be called stupid? Get out of the limelight. Or, stay in, and take it like a woman.

    Equal rights, equal fights.

    Hillary Clinton was mistreated when it came to appearances, when it came to wardrobe – petty, superficial things that the men don't ever seem to hear much about, but a woman candidate will," she said.

    New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s weight often fuels comments about his appearance.

    "That's because it's been extreme. So it's hard for some people not to comment on it," said Palin

    Hell has frozen over.
    I agree with something Sarah Palin said.
    Moreover she made absolute sense.
    Sarah's looking quite a bit older.
    Has she been educating herself and getting wiser?

    She's not looking too good I must say.

    ...Or is it just her malicious hatred coming home to roost?
    Boy she went off the deep end in 2008-2010 didn't she?

    For once I agree with Palin. Hil Clinton will have gender bias thrown at her and other things as well. Happends on both sides of the aisle. Herman Cain proved that when the liberal media was calling him a token, sell out, uncle tom, and the man who must be hitting a crack pipe.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about Ed Schultz using the c-word to describe conservative women.

    @DM4O,

    "She's not looking too good I must say.
    Is she ill?"

    I'm actually liking the luxuriant hair she's rocking here, but the face has aged, it is true.

    The 40's are incredibly hard on all of us. :( I was once incredibly handsome; now I'm forced to rely on my charm.

    Uh oh.

    "Herman Cain proved that when the liberal media was calling him a token, sell out, uncle tom, and the man who must be hitting a crack pipe."

    Really? When was this? Seriously? What a joke...did you hallucinate it or just make it up on purpose? If anything, the MSM propped the guy up hardcore. There used to be a time when someone so blatantly unqualified and so obviously nothing more than a pandering carnival show would've been laughed out of the limelight by the "news" media, but he took them all for quite a ride while they drooled over him and how easy he made it for them to sensationalize the drivel leaking from his mouth. Kronkite would've taken a dump on Cain's campaign and stopped even covering him....or if he did, he certainly would not have covered Cain and his campaign as though they were to be taken seriously.

    "Boy she went off the deep end in 2008-2010 didn't she?"

    And the entire MSM dutifully put on their swimmies and dove in with her.

    @Sniffit,
    I really don't think you have any business making any comments about Herman Cain. I mean, we all know what your code is for "Kronkite would've taken a dump on Cain's campaign ". You just mean that every African American that happens to be a conservative should be deficated on. I know your code words and what they really mean.

    @Sniffit-You didn`t see any of that because you were glued to MSNBC the whole time.

    Can't vouch for your looks buddy, but you definitely still have your charm and in the end that you will get you further longer...that and your self-deprecating sense of humor.
    Charming indeed.

    Shall we admit to taking a few dips in that pool ourselves Sniffit?
    If only to see how deep (or in her case shallow) the water was...or how cold?
    I know I almost drowned I jumped in there so often....if only to see if I could drown her!

    Sarah Palin, 'the half time governor,' full time reality c-leb, is giving advice to Hillary Clinton, a full time public servant & statesperson!? Lol, that's.....Hilla-rious!! Sarah doesn't give an elk dropping about what women go through in the work place or at the hands of her T-Party governors or federal legislators! If she did she'd actually be relevant & on the right side of history! At this point she's just on the right side of.....hist-rionics! Lol!!!

    "One more chin lift, and she will have a moustache!"
    Now this made me laugh....

    And Sniffit, excellent response to smith's drivel... if anything cain was allowed to appear as a viable candidate for far too long. I don't know what channel she is watching or where she gets her info. from, but I heard no racial connotations (code or otherwise) in regards to his run.
    And, I believe you have finally caused tom I to get a bed next to rick mcdaniel, because he has truly went over the rainbow with that last comment.
