Well, it looks like feminism is either eating its young, or choking on it, but either way it is a meltdown. Hard to think they will ever be taken with a straight face again.
The issue of course is Sarah Palin. I love this Foxnews story (and many others like it) about how the femmes don’t know what to do with her. A woman for VP–yeah! Oh, but SP isn’t the right kind of chic. So we get this:
The feminist debate has come full circle. As Sarah Palin barnstorms throughout the country emphasizing her personal story of being Alaska’s governor and the mother of five children, many liberal commentators are asking whether she can balance the rigor of the vice presidency with the demands of parenting.
But I thought women can have it both ways?!?!!? Or get this:
Sally Quinn, a columnist with The Washington Post, wrote in a recent online column that Palin’s need to care for her special needs son, Trig, and her daughter, Bristol, not to mention her three other children, would “inevitably be an enormous distraction for a new vice president (or president) in a time of global turmoil.”
As if Sally Quinn knows what is best–does she have a pregnant daughter and a Downs baby?
Its bullshit, and all but the femmes know it. It is called hypocrisy, a disease particularly rampant on the left.
See this also, from the National Review: “Whether or not Sarah Palin helps John McCain win the election, her greatest work may already be behind her. She’s exposed the feminist con job. Don’t take my word for it. Feminists have been screaming like stuck pigs 24/7 since Palin was announced as McCain’s running mate.”
