John McCain chose the supremely under-qualified Sarah Palin as his running mate partly because she is a woman. If you have a problem with that, you're a sexist. She talks incessantly about being a mother of five and uses her newborn, Trig, who has Down syndrome, as a campaign prop. If you wonder how she'll handle all those kids and the Veep job too, you're a super-sexist. "When do they ever ask a man that question?" charges that fiery feminist Rudy Giuliani. Indeed, Palin, who went back to work when Trig was three days old, gets nothing but praise from Phyllis Schlafly, James Dobson and the folks at National Review, who usually blame all the ills of modern America on those neurotic, harried, selfish, frustrated, child-neglecting, husband-castrating working mothers. Even stranger, her five-months-pregnant 17-year-old, Bristol, gets nothing but compassion and respect from Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and others who have spent their careers slut-shaming teens for having sex--and blaming their parents for letting it happen.
If there were an Olympics for hypocrisy, the Republican Party would have more gold medals than Michael Phelps. And Palin would be wearing quite a few of them. It takes chutzpah for a mother to thrust her pregnant teen into the world's harshest spotlight and then demand the world respect the girl's privacy.

I'm having trouble deciding if her fury at Sarah Palin is more amusing, or more pathetic. However, if I was her doctor, I'd definitely increase her medication.
Mom didn't do that, Katha. The Drive-By Media did. And you know it.
>>>Phyllis Schlafly, James Dobson and the folks at National Review, who usually blame all the ills of modern America on those neurotic, harried, selfish, frustrated, child-neglecting, husband-castrating working mothers<<<
I’ve been reading “National Review” for more than 20 years. How did I miss that?
Just because Costco sells Red Bull by the case, it doesn’t mean you have to drink the whole thing at one sitting.
I think she might be self-medicating with tincture of dunce!
What these people fail to notice when discussing Bristol Palin’s pregnancy is that evangelical Christians have been enthusiastically supporting Crisis Pregnancy Centers for the past 25 years. They have dealt with the issue of teen pregnancy before, and are fully prepared to give compassion and love to a young woman who is pregnant, whether she is married or not.
It is like they expect us to show up with pitchforks and torches. Where have they been for the last quarter century?
bump for later web response to Ms. Pollit...
George Karlin was dead on when he pegged these [fill in the blank]
Another Orc heard from...
“How did I miss that?”
It was nuanced.
Fowler/Sibelius/Pollit for lesbian triumvirate to run our country! Is it a he-woman or a she-male, you decide.
I got through the first two sentences.
If that is the case, then Democrats nominated someone even more unqualified. If you have a problem with that, you’re a brain dead liberal.
It means that your flimflam game is over. The covers have been pulled back wizard, we all now know it was just a smokescreen to protect your sacrament of abortion. Feminism is dead or seriously wounded in the least.
Community organizer vs. successful, popular governor who achieved much and cut waste in short order.
That's how she starts off her rant? Uups.
Now you don't see THAT alert every day...
It’s because governor Palin is a full fledged renaisnce Woman, and Polit will never even mature into *any* kind of woman. She’ll always be a 13 yr old perverted, baby killing, party (line) clique slut.
Katha Pollitt... how does someone so stupid manage to get up in the morning and breathe?
Katha Pollit — her name sounds like something I’d either use an antifungal creme on; or have removed from my posterior by a specialist.
Man it’s funny the hypocrisy of it all. They can’t believe it an attractive smart, working mom who loves her kids doesn’t see them as burden, who can enjoy being feminine and treating like a Woman. But can be tough as nails in an arena of Ideas. Will love when Dem’s severly underestimate her abilities in the debate. She is going beat Biden like he owes her money! LOL
“It takes chutzpah for a mother to thrust her pregnant teen into the world’s harshest spotlight and then demand the world respect the girl’s privacy.”
Sort of like the way the Clintons allowed/urged Chelsea to appear in public with them after the Monica Lewinsky story broke to share in her parents’ public embarrassment, then demanded the world respect Chelsea’s privacy. Right, Katha?
Shouldn’t this b***h be praising us for seeing the light?
Before children were ghettoized in day care, mothers ably did all their regular work with a child or two in tow or around. It's perfectly natural. She has a baby and brings him along with her. What the heck is wrong with THAT?
>”Lipstick on a wing nut.....”<
You’ve insulted Red Wing Fans everywhere!!
Re Camille Paglia, excellent counter from one of their own (but better and smarter.)
I’m blind! I’m bliiiiind!!!
Yep. I think that about sums it up.
If Governor Palin is under qualified, why are they so mad? Shouldn’t they be happy that she is so under qualified,they will be able to walk across the finish line without breaking a sweat?
I guess she thinks she is the only one who understands what a feminist is, ie, act like I do or you don’t understand.
Forget the meds, can we say brain transplant, maybe a few of Sarah’s dna cells inplanted in her wasteland of grey matter may cause her to grow into a real feminist...
For a definition of a true feminist with class..see Sarah Palin..
Churn and burn baby!!!
She is going to obliterate Joey in spite of his “hardscrabble” upbringing (Democrat BS appeal) in Scranton. He represents all that is vicious in liberals. Sarah will be the first female VP and POTUS. Can you imagine the likes of liberal and feminists (one in the same)as they see their dream snatched right from them. She represents everything great and good in this country. She is a natural in every way and their jealously and rage is spiraling out of control like an ebola epidemic. They are IMPLODING!
Ewwwwe! That lesbo is almost as ugly as Lynn Stewart.
And what really worries them is that if a 'noname' like Sarah can do it, maybe there are alot of other 'nonames' out there who can do the same thing.
Feminist author Camille Paglia described Pollitt as a "whiny troll, an unscrupulous and unreliable critic and a cultural philistine...She's a good example of the phony prep-school/trust-fund leftism suffusing the incestuously interwined Ivy League cliques who run the corrupt East Coast literary and magazine establishment."
Scared the dickens out of me... : )
rushing America's daughters into abortion clinics.....
Wow, this chick proves Rush’s undeniable fact of life #24:
24. Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women access to the mainstream of society.
Picture on #13. ............... She does not leave me with the impression of being a warm hearted, caring woman, nor does the pictures above her of the Liberal stereotype.
On another thread someone asked why are they (media, lefties, feminists) afraid of Sarah Palin?
IMV as I stated, Sarah Palin does not fit the mold of the Christian fundamentalist wacko right-winger that the left has tried to ingrain on the public conscience. Isn’t that their forte, to caricaturize and demonize anything and anyone they disagree with??? Now here comes this strong, confident, articulate, beautiful, smart, (and yes, even sexy and fit) Conservative woman with a beautiful, charming family to boot, which has broken the lefties’ mold of conservative “fly-over country”, and they loathe her for it.
They are flummoxed by her presence and truly frightened of what she is about to do to American politics.
Sarah Palin is going to win this one for Republicans and I truly believe nothing will be the same for our party again.
Bet she tears her hair out in bug bloody clumps...
ugly is as ugly does
The more hate they spew the more ground they lose.
Keep spewing Ms. Hate.
