There have been a number of developments since our last episode of Sarah Palin vs. The Misogynists.
Some stupid asshats said more stupid shit, real people complained and advertisers pulled ads from CBS, Letterman gave a half-assed apology which Sarah accepted. This upset the Failbots who reacted by recycling old lies and saying even more disgusting shit. Violet Socks rocks, others not so much.
Sarah Palin is the Designated Hate Receptacle for self-described feminists. They know they’re not supposed to hate other women, but they do anyway because their feminism is not quite as strong as their patriarchal brainwashing. Sarah Palin is the culture’s designated Hate Receptacle.
I wasn’t just being all poetic a few days ago when I said that every joke about Sarah Palin is a joke about you (if you’re female). This is pure misogyny. It’s rage against women, channeled onto one woman. (emphasis added)
It was sure nice of Sarah to give Hillary a few years off, since Hillary was the Designated Hate Receptacle of both the left and right for 16 straight years. Oh, you still see some Hillaryhatin’ going on, especially if you listen to Dick(head) Morris, but mostly the haters leave her alone (for now anyway)
Between Hillary and Sarah the haters have used just about every negative stereotype of women: Hillary is a cold, calculating ballcrusher (and a lesbian) while Sarah is a stupid bimbo. One is unattractive while the other is too good looking.
It doesn’t matter what Sarah does – if she stays in Alaska or visits the lower-48 she makes the news. Since the election she made the news several times while doing nothing – anytime somebody remotely connected to her got in trouble or had dirt to dish. She even made the national news for being present when a Thanksgiving turkey was murdered assassinated executed slaughtered died.
She may as well plan to run for President in 2012 or 2016 – since the asshats won’t leave her alone anyway.
