I have to apologize to Sarah Palin for taking issue with the drivel that sometimes comes out of her mouth. Now that I’ve encountered Kathryn Jean Lopez, Editor-at-Large of National Review Online, Palin looks downright … intelligent. In fact, I’m going so far to say that Ms. Lopez’s most recent anti-woman diatribe might just be the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read … and I’ve seen some mighty strange things. Oh, and she’s not even hot. Not that it matters, but since Sarah Palin’s looks are such a point of contention, I thought I’d throw it out there.
This is how Lopez chose to begin a recent editorial:
Usually, people want to stand up and be counted. During the most recent Supreme Court confirmation hearings, Solicitor General Elena Kagan’s, I wanted to do just the opposite.
The moment occurred while Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota was speechifying about women’s “progress.” She was reveling in the same kind of political victimhood that frequently seems to perversely empower liberal women who work in Washington. It helps with their ideologically advantageous illusion that women are somehow oppressed in the United States, despite the fact that, say, the secretary of state is a woman (as has been the case more often than not lately).
