It starts out with somebody who is probably fairly typical of conservative women:
Susie Baron is a Republican, a mother of two and a home-schooler. She voted for Mike Huckabee in the Ohio primary, but now -- because of Sarah Palin -- she thinks she is part of something much bigger.
"I wouldn't even call it a Palin movement, I'd call it a sleeping giant that has been awakened," Baron, 56, said at a rally here Tuesday. She described its members as a silent majority of women in Middle America who "are raising our families, who work if we have to, but love our country and our families first."
"And until now, we haven't had anyone to identify with," Baron said, adding that traditional feminist groups such as the National Organization for Women do "not represent me."
But the Left just doesn't get it:
...Obama advisers said that once women across the board begin considering Palin's stands on social issues such as human embryonic stem cell research and legalized abortion -- she opposes both -- their interest will fade.
Do these guys not read blogs? Do they not get that women are divided, and that for every woman who has a purely utilitarian view to human embryos, there is another who sees them as the youngest and most vulnerable members of the human family and want to see them protected?
Guess not. They really believe their own rhetoric. They really do think that all women share the leftist embrace of abortion and the cannibalization of embryos.
They're gonna be in for a surprise when Palin remains popular, especially among women -- not despite her stands on how we treat the youngest among us, but because of those stands.
