I think Tina Fey can be amazing when utilized properly, but her turn as Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live was only hilarious in comparison to that show’s usual offering of bleak un-comedy. It made me crack a smile, but it was no The Daily Show.
You know what is hilarious, though? McCain surrogate Carly Fiorina’s response.
“I think that continues the line of argument that is disrespectful in the extreme and yes, I would say, sexist, in the sense that just because Sarah Palin has different views than Hillary Clinton does not mean that she lacks substance.”
Suggesting that some women have substance and others do not = sexism. Because all good feminists know that female politicians are completely interchangeable, and you should just vote for them regardless of what they say or do.
I’m really glad we have the McCain campaign around to explain what sexism is and isn’t.
