What Women Want?

What do you think of this mock 'women for John McCain' ad? Would it sway any of the women you know who are thinking of supporting McCain/Palin, or do they know McCain's policies and support them?

Honestly, I think this only BARELY reads as a mock ad. I know a few women who are voting for McCain who would not object to much of what is said here.

Example: A pro-McCain friend of mine talked about spending summer weekends in the Hamptons with her husband. The exchange ended as follows:

HER: "We like to be near the golf course."

ME: (surprised) "Oh, do you golf?"

HER: "No, silly, just my husband."

ME: "I figured, but it would have been sexist to assume..."

HER: (patting my arm) "It's okay. You can be sexist with me."

And, yes, that's a DIRECT QUOTE. She's fervently in the camp that believes men should be paid more so they can provide for their family. Sigh. Apparently all we feminists need is a rich husband so we can stop worrying so much...
