Feminine Rage

Courtesy Red Planet Cartoons

What was at first appalling but now entertaining, is watching otherwise rational women claw and scratch each other out of the way in an attempt to level the meanest insult at Sarah Palin. From the gossipy grandma story to the latest fake Vogue cover, it's enough to make the feminists at Blue Lyon appear to be an island of sanity.

So she's pro-life, as governor she did absolutely nothing regarding sex education in public schools that her own kids attend. The fact that her daughter is pregnant is evidence that public sex education is a failure, not abstinence education. So she fires a librarian over what books to have in the library. Does anyone know which books? No, it could've been Hustler Magazine for all anybody knows. As for the so-called "Trooper-Gate Scandal", giving a kid a slap on the butt is inappropriate, but tasering them is perfectly fine. When did that happen?

C'mon ladies, you're better than this. A little less menstrual fury and a little more clear headed thinking is in order. Remember the first rule of warfare, know your enemy. Preaching to the choir will always get lots of amens, but few converts. You're Democrats and she's not. I get that part. What I don't get is one single reason not to give her a chance at success.

Expecting clear-headed thinking is a pipe dream. Blue Lyon is impressive in her assessment of this Palin situation.

You're right on both counts. I never would have guessed it, but the left-wing feminists have out done everybody with the in depth fact based reporting.

Well, thank you. I must be doing something right: Zeke and Texex think I'm off the rails.

The point that I keep trying to make to my "progressive" (and I now HATE that word), is that feminism is for all women, just as free speech is for everyone, not just those we agree with.

And, the shit that's been thrown at Palin has been horrid. I'll stick up for any woman that sort of crap is aimed at. And, I like her. She reminds me of, well, me and my neighbors. Check with Fiery Side whose been defending Sarah Palin as well.

Thanks for commenting at my blog today, I'll keep checking back!
