Skip to comments.Sarah Palin needs to rein in her harsh feminist rhetoric

I applaud Sarah Palins passion, her adroit sense of humor, and her you-go-girl! gumption. But the more I learn about Sarah Palin, the more I become perplexed by her over-heated gender-bending rhetoric.
I believe we can all agree that men and women should have equal opportunities. But lets not confuse equal opportunities with identical outcomes. Just because a woman has the same right to an education and a decent job doesnt mean she will pursue the identical career path, toil as long, or work as many years as a man.
Men and women have differing proclivities and interests most Americans understand this fact. But then there is the small band of disaffected feminists who adamantly insist any and all social differences are the product of gender discrimination.
So where does the former vice-presidential candidate stand on all of this?
Lets take the gender wage gap. Dozens of studies show that when the relevant factors are taken into account training, experience, hours worked, and so forth any salary difference is smaller than a twinkle in Nancy Pelosis eye.
But during the 2008 presidential campaign, Palin used the myth to skewer her Democratic opponent. Ignoring the fact that most of the top-level staffers in Obamas former Senate office were male, she made this charge: Out on the stump he talks a good game about equal pay for equal work, but according to the Senate payroll records, women on his own staff get just 83 cents for every dollar that the men get.
Ratcheting up womens sense of resentment, Palin then asked, Does he think that the women arent working as hard? Does he think they are 17% less productive?

What say you, womyn?
This article sounds like it was written in sixties.
Reminds me of people who used to say “I’m not prejudiced. I know several black people.”
Alinsky’s Fourth: “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.”
Alinsky’s Fifth: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
PDS FUD Alert.
I CAN HAS FUD?...oh, not that kind of fud. Never mind.
What is pathetic? The article?
No. The gibberish that comes out of her mouth.
Lolz Grizzly ping! :)
Carey Roberts? Never heard of her.
Sorry, the woman hating days are over. Conservative women are saving the cause from the establishment types. Its all around the nation,,, a trend. And more better,,, they are killing the common belief that only the left is the place for a woman to accomplish anything. Go Sarah...
Top Three Sarah Bashing Techniques:
1 - Be proud and just come out with it: “I hate (despise, detest, loath) Sarah because.....”
2 - Disguise yourself as an admirer: “I love (applaud, admire, support) Sarah, BUT.....”
3 - Claim to not have an opinion, then describe how she scares you, your kids, the local outlaw biker club, etc.
Oh, puhleeze. Me thinks the author just hates Sarah Palin, not "harsh feminist rhetoric".
Carey Roberts sounds like she has a burr up her butt. Maybe it is contagious?
Harsh rhetoric? She shouldn’t criticize her Democrat opponent for claiming to be politically correct, yet paying his female staffers less than the men?
It’s harsh rhetoric to point out that a Democrat is being a hypocrite?
As for the men in McCain’s campaign staff, I’d say she was very restrained in what she has said about them. Considering that they were selfish losers who were apparently working hard to sabotage the campaign and get Obama elected.
Yeah, that’s harsh!
Out of palin’s mouth, right?
Your pathological derangement is what is pathetic.
The minute this article popped up on my news feed I should have known pissant would rush over to FR to post it.
Do you realize what a sad little insect you are, sitting around in your urine stained underwear just waiting for a negative article on Governor Palin?
You define pathetic.
Palin has yours in a lock box?
