And has bitchin' style, to boot.
"This isn't the first time a boss has picked an unqualified woman just because she agrees with him and opposes everything most other women want and need. Feminism has never been about getting a job for one woman. It's about making life more fair for women everywhere. It's not about a piece of the existing pie; there are too many of us for that. It's about baking a new pie."
On Palin, she writes: "I don't doubt her sincerity. As a lifetime member of the National Rifle Assn., she doesn't just support killing animals from helicopters, she does it herself. She doesn't just talk about increasing the use of fossil fuels but puts a coal-burning power plant in her own small town. She doesn't just echo McCain's pledge to criminalize abortion by overturning Roe vs. Wade, she says that if one of her daughters were impregnated by rape or incest, she should bear the child. She not only opposes reproductive freedom as a human right but implies that it dictates abortion, without saying that it also protects the right to have a child."
I found an interview from 1995 in which she says this, and I couldn't help but think that she could also be saying the same think about Obama today.
Q: Isn't it possible that the country really is a good deal more conservative than people like you might have imagined?
A: I would believe that if I didn't travel. I'm met--wherever, the airport or the bus station--by this hardy band of activists who say one of two things: either, "This is the most conservative place you've ever been," or, "This is the most apathetic place." Then they say: "We've hired a hall for tonight. We're really afraid no-body's going to come. We're this lonely, embattled group."
Then you get to this hall they've hired. The hall is full. There are thousands of people outside. This happens constantly. And it happens to Ralph Nader. It happens to anybody who expresses hope rather than fear. I mean at Princeton we had to walk across the campus for an hour to get a bigger hall. Sometimes at bookstores there have been people sleeping in sleeping bags outside to keep a place in line.
