“And can somebody please explain why feminists of a certain age sneer at Palin when she is a self-made sister who combines career and family, despite the burden of being married to a dill who describes himself as Alaska’s First Dude?

Is it just because she is a moose-shooting (it wins Alaskan elections), husband-rooting (she didn’t come across that tribe of children on a hunting trip), own-horn-tooting (McCain heard about her somehow) woman who hasn’t read enough Germaine Greer to understand her own oppression?”
