“It is so bogus that society is sending a message right now and has been for probably the last 40 years that a woman isn’t strong enough or smart enough to be able to pursue an education, a career, and her rights and still let her baby live.” – Sarah Palin before Wisconsin Right To Life (11-7-09)
What the fuck are you babbling about now, Sarah? Do women face discrimination in American society today? No doubt. Yet the liberties (e.g. education, legal, work, reproductive rights, et al) available to women over the past 40 years to today have expanded by an order of magnitude.
Yet ex-Governor Palin is apparently under the impression that it’s still 1957 on the calendar as she is that some unknown entity is out to grease her youngest child.
Thus, in response to her statement above I can best reply with another quote which I feel perfectly sums up an audience—that is, one that didn’t pay to see her—response to each time Palin tries to talk like a grown-up:
And I quote…
“What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.” – Billy Madison
