New Term: Blueneck

South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Carol Fowler sharply attacked Sarah Palin today, saying John McCain had chosen a running mate "whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.”

Classy Ms. Fowler, really classy. If one didn't know better, they'd think such words came out of the mouth of a redneck. But you'd never accept that moniker so perhaps "blueneck" is more appropos?!? Whichever the case, inspired by Obama's own words: "A pig with lipstick is still a pig, Ms. Fowler!"

Here's one fellow's more stinging take on it.

One thing he said is something I thought about a week or so ago. Can we talk honestly with the politically correct blinders removed? From a male perspective, a lot of these women making the most venomous attacks against Sarah Palin are not exactly the most physically attractive women, are they? Wouldn't stop me from voting for them because looks don't matter whatsoever to me when it comes to a politician. But I wonder what a psychologist would say about this commonality of appearance amongst her most outspoken antagonists?

Might it actually go back to how such women were sidelined in high school, with boys wanting to date more attractive young women?
