Lipstick on a Wing Nut (Angry Bitter Feminazi Exploding Head Alert)
The Nation ^ | 9/10/2008 | Katha Pollit

Posted on 09/11/2008 3:38:39 PM PDT by mojito

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.

Katha Pollit has been a sorry sad bitter little communist for a long time.

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.

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.

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?

“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.

What does all this mean to feminism?

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.
