Here come the Obama Girls of Comedy, swinging the swing states back to blue!
Who says that women are jumping the Obama ship? When the Republicans nominated Sarah Palin for Vice President, they thought they had a winner. They were certain that they would get most American women onboard. Who doesn’t want to see a fellow sister breaking the glass ceiling? Even if that “sister” is against a woman’s right to choose, environmental protection, alternative energy development, freedom of speech, gun control, the separation of church and state and polar bears. Well, this time the GOP got it wrong, again.
While we recognize that Governor Palin’s rise is certainly admirable, Republicans are trying to employ a “don’t ask, don’t tell” tactic on her candidacy. If no one asks her about her record, the American public can just be seduced by her bespectacled charm and hockey mom wiles. Swing states are swinging with her. Republicans are suddenly sexy!
The Obama Girls of Comedy are hitting the road to bring sexy back to the Democrats. Govenor Palin is no match for these hotties of hilarity. The show features female comedians who have appeared on Comedy Central, VH-1, HBO and Network Television. We are still sweet on Obama and spreading the good word!
THE OBAMA GIRLS OF COMEDY: changing hearts and minds one laugh at a time.
