Everyone has told a porky or two to get out of a difficult situation – but Palin’s is a perpetual porky teller ~ an expert in porkies ~ it’s so bad that if Palin said the sky is blue – I’d get out there and double check.

On feminism Palin has not been too strong on women’s issues – charging women for rape kits, slashing funding for vulnerable teen mothers, and opposes choice even in extreme cases. John McCain record is worst – he’s against equal pay for equal work – and as Carly Fiorina says – voted for Viagra over bills that supported women’s rights.  

Palin told Katie Couric last month she considers herself a feminist.

BEAVER, Pennsylvania (CNN) – Does Sarah Palin consider herself a feminist? It depends on which network anchor is asking.

In an interview on NBC Nightly News that aired Thursday, host Brian Williams asked Palin: “Governor, are you a feminist?”

“I’m not gonna label myself anything, Brian,” she responded. “And I think that’s what annoys a lot of Americans, especially in a political campaign, is to start trying to label different parts of America different, different backgrounds, different … I’m not going to put a label on myself. ”

The vice presidential nominee said she believes in women’s rights and equal rights. Palin went on to say that when she was growing up in Alaska, she “was expected to do the same thing that the guys were doing.”

“I’m not going label myself feminist or not,” she concluded, “but I do believe that American women can recognize in me an advocate and a friend. And I want to be in the White House for them.”

But Palin gave a different answer in September when Katie Couric of CBS News asked her, “Do you consider yourself a feminist?”

“I do,” Palin answered. “I’m a feminist who believes in equal rights and I believe that women certainly today have every opportunity that a man has to succeed, and to try to do it all, anyway.”

In that sit-down, Palin told Couric she defines a feminist as “someone who believes in equal rights. Someone who would not stand for oppression against women.”

Women Against McCain-Palin have released this short, emotionally blunt advertisement in which a young woman relates how Sarah Palin’s policies could have played out in her life, to her detriment.

    “I was raped, and then I got pregnant. Sarah Palin believes the government should be able to force me to carry the pregnancy to term. Sarah Palin believes that the government should make that choice. Not me. Governor Palin, I didn’t have a choice about being raped. But I should have a choice about this.”

It’s a fitting reminder of how McCain and Palin would extend the intrusive hand of government into affairs in which it should hold no sway. I’d also remind you that McCain thinks that the those who are concerned about the health and well-being of women are “extreme.” I’d remind you that when McCain and Palin disclosed Palin’s daughter’s pregnancy, they took pains to state that Bristol “made the decision on her own to keep the baby,” which makes no sense, since they do not in any way acknowledge that Bristol’s choice in the matter, matters. I’d remind you that Sarah Palin believes that rape victims should bear the cost of investigating their own cases. And I’d remind you that when asked to consider what a rape victim should do, given Sarah Palin’s antipathy to her plight, a die-hard McCain/Palin supporter said, “She should die.” All of these things are worth remembering.
