"If I were writing a letter to Sarah Palin," Pink told PopEater during her Sessions taping on Thursday, "it would be a lot of whys and hows. Who are you? Do you know? Why do you hate animals? Please point out Iraq on a map ..."Last year her message ('probing questions') to the US president Bush was as straightforward and powerful. It was a song - Dear Mr President... (I posted it in April 2007). According to some reports, it proved to be so controversial that has been unofficially banned from radio stations across the US back then.
What scares Pink are women who consider the Alaska governor's selection a feminist victory. "This woman hates women," the singer said. "She is not a feminist. She is not the woman that's going to come behind Hillary Clinton and do anything that Hillary Clinton would've been capable of ... I can't imagine overturning Roe vs. Wade. She's not of this time. The woman terrifies me."
Pink, an animal rights activist, suggests creatures other than humans should be just as scared of Palin: "I can't imagine shooting a wolf out of a helicopter."
Comedian Margaret Cho's choice of words was even more extreme:
"I think [Palin] is the worst thing to happen to America since 9-11,” Cho said. "Someone who has no thoughts about women's rights and who wants to send women back to the Stone Age? You might as well not let women vote. I came out of the Democratic convention feeling so proud and excited, but now I fear that our country is so backwards in so many ways and the ignorance that exists is greater than we can even imagine.” [...]
"The reach of homophobia and hatred is so wide, it's disturbing how deep it is,” Cho said. “Now with Sarah Palin, who is so anti-gay and advocated camps for them to go to be brainwashed, she is a real sign of something very wrong with this country, a real problem. We are battling homophobia on so many fronts." [...]
She worries that the Republicans will "probably fix the election again" and feels that their vice-presidential pick of Sarah Palin was meant to "appease disgruntled Hillary voters." In Cho's opinion, the consequences of voting for the so-called "pitbull with lipstick" will be disastrous.
