Two things really strike me. Let’s start with the lesser funny and move on to the greater funny.
Y’all, thank god that Adrienne thinks I’m one of the meanest feminists out there because I’m about to say something very mean and I would hate to think she felt caught off-guard by it. But who is even remotely surprised that a conservative woman who was in a sorority but has only mostly male friends doesn’t find feminism has much to offer her (you’re still welcome for your college education, though, of course)?
Well, pluck my feathers and call me a chicken, of course she doesn’t.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.
Also, let’s give a little “ha” to the idea that saying, “this is a woman who thinks that Cosmo is a main vehicle for the transmittal of feminist values, so, really, there’s no hope,” constitutes “virtually” beating her up and another little “ha” to her trying to pass “Mean Girls” off as a documentary.
2. “Perhaps many of leading lefty blogs are men, but on the right, there are powerful women. We don’t make a big deal out of it because the right operates by merit while the left focuses on quotas. ”
Do we have instant replay in blogging? Let’s institute it. Can we get an instant replay?
“the right operates by merit”
Oh really, really?
I have but one question (and yes, I believe you could ask the same thing of the Democratic candidates, but no one’s claiming the Democratic party is a meritocracy): When you look at the Republican presidental candidates, do you really believe that those are the Republicans most capable of leading this country? That they, out of all of the Republicans in this fair land, are the few that are the best for the job?
I’m going to be laughing about that for a long, long time.
