New Feminism, My Ass!

Posted By on Mon, Jun 15, 2009 at 10:41 PM


Last night, I cringed when I watched David Letterman apologize for the now-overly analyzed and debated joke about Gov. Sarah Palin and her daughter—Bristol. Reaction to this mess reminds me of the human stupidity that led to Bill Maher being fired from ABC post-Sept. 11, or when Air America's Randi Rhodes was let go for calling Hillary Clinton a whore during the presidential campaign.

Letterman's apology, however, isn't as sad as the discussions claiming that this bullshit has helped us usher in a new feminism. Palin's attack is political opportunism and nothing more. To make it part of a true discussion on feminism just adds more to this stinky heap.
