Sex? Gender? McCain & Palin

Is this interesting or just seriously fucked up?

The Republicans didn’t need just any woman to compete with Obama for the Wow factor, the Mmm factor, the stable, loving family factor. It is a calculated bonus that adherents can now speak loftily of making history, but for different reasons, drawing deep from the well of their identities, and not for the first time, both McCain and the right needed a sexual icon.

Hmmmm.  One way or another, this is going to go down as the weirdest election in American history.  Here ya go
