Amy Siskind’s defective magnifying glass
Amy Siskind’s PUMA front organization, The New Agenda, styles itself as a nonpartisan women’s group that is dedicated to calling out sexism wherever it’s found. But Siskind got so caught up in lady-fapping over Palin’s lame-ass speech yesterday that she kinda forgot she’s always supposed to be “searching for sexism.”
Today, Siskind approvingly linked a Mooney Times column by unfunny wingnut troglodyte Eric Golub—the dude from yesterday’s rally in Iowa who made the tasteless joke about Trig Palin. Golub repeats the “joke,” which slams Democratic women—including Hillary Clinton—in the column Siskind links:
[T]he left should worship Sarah Palin and adopt her as one of their own, because the leftist haters are an entire political ideology of special needs children.
...and unlike Trig, they aren’t very lovable…
Every word out of their mouths is ‘gimme, gimme, I need, I need, I want, I deserve, I’m entitled’...no you don’t.
When you’re four years old it’s mildly adorable. When you’re 64 like Barbara Boxer, Hillary Clinton, or the Pelosiraptor, it is intolerable.”
Siskind’s organization has been anti-Obama and anyone who supports him from its inception. Still, it’s a bit surprising that Siskind would overlook a slam on her former idol Hillary Clinton.
Remember, this is the same Siskind who concluded that President Obama is a sexist monster because he once used the word “periodically.” If a Democrat had directed remarks like the above toward Palin or Bachmann, Siskind would be in an ear-splitting snit all over Fox News. But since Golub shares Siskind’s creepy, worshipful attitude toward Palin, it’s all good.
What’s the word for that? Oh yeah: T-O-O-L.
