Palin's About-Face On Feminism

October 23rd:

Brian Williams: "Governor, are you a feminist?"
Palin: pauses... "I'm not gonna label myself anything, Brian..."

October 30th:

Katie Couric: "Do you consider yourself a feminist?"
Palin: "I do. A feminist who, uh, believes in, uh, equal rights."

As seen on the Daily Show's 10/27 Moment of Zen.

From a table of true feminists the other night, many who have been fighting for woman's rights for decades. "That woman is going to set back the cause of women for decades". "She has polluted the political field for other women who try and fight for equal footing in that arena"

One of the participants was a Republican who I am fully supporting who was a mayor of a small town in Texas [Colleyville] and on the City Council prior to that. If she wins her council race here in Lex, 300K folks, we are thinking VP is the next rung of her ladder. And as a folksy Harlan County gal, gosh darn it, she can shoot, run and kick ass with the best of them. Oh, the only problem is, she is smart. I know they will hold that against her. Bummer.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
