Whoopi questions Hasselbeck on why Palin would make a "good president"

Posted today at the Huffington Post:

“The View” heated up over politics again Wednesday morning, specifically around the subject of Sarah Palin’s readiness to be President.

“She doesn’t know anything about it!” Whoopi Goldberg said, which set off co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

“In terms of experience, she’s actually been leading a microcosm of the United States of America,” Elisabeth responded.

Things heated up even more after Elisabeth took a swipe at Joe Biden, prompting Barbara Walters to say, “Every single day you never ever say, maybe there’s another point, so this is your chance….Tell us now why you think that Sarah Palin would make a very good President.”

Elisabeth’s response? “Tell me why Barack Obama is qualified to be President.”

Feminism is acceptable as long as it wears a skirt

Nina passed along a post from the folks at JezebelDonny Deutsch reiterates  what I posted in an earlier post from September 11, “America the Beautiful,” that feminism can be tolerated and embraced as long as that feminist is attractive and is showing off her gams in a skirt.

I guess people forget that feminism sought and continues to seek new areas of expression, leadership and opportunity beyond the narrow confines of a dictated and oppressive beauty standard.  I celebrate women’s beauty in all forms.  I am not oppossed to wearing lipstick.  I DON’T feel that our physical appearance should be the sole measure of our worth or our capabilities as aleader, a mother or a lover.

This is just another ludicrous example of the watered down “feminism” the right is trying to offer women.
