Here she was, a charismatic, working-class heroine who oozed folksy provincialism with the naturalness of Lyndon Johnson in the same breath as she cheered her Hillary Clintonesque assault on the glass ceiling. Yes, here she wasclinging to her guns, her religion, and her babies, and saying, and apparently believing, all the wrong things." "The young feminist Jessica Grose, writing on the popular website Jezebel just after the Republican convention, waswell, well let her describe it: When Palin spoke on Wednesday night, my head almost exploded from the incandescent anger boiling in my skull. . . . What I feel for her privately could be described as violent, nay, murderous, rage. Groses readers left more than 700 comments, according to the late New York Sun, including one from a reader who wanted to vomit with rage. Other haters damned Palin as a traitor to her sex or an insult to women, as Judith Warner spat in the New York Times. Turncoat bitch! the comedian Sandra Bernhard railed in a performance caught on YouTube. You whore in your cheap ****ing . . . cheap-ass plastic glasses and your hair up! Writing on a Washington Post blog, Wendy Doniger, a Hinduism specialist at the University of Chicago Divinity School, topped them all: Palins greatest hypocrisy is in her pretense that she is a woman. Why are they mad that Sarah Palin and her followers of strong independent conservative women are moving up in ranks in politics? isnt this what they wanted?
