    OMG...

    Honestly? Now Tina FEY'S portrayal is sexist? Give me a fuckin break.

    It's pretty clear at this point that the Mccain campaign is labeling ANY criticism against Palin as sexist.

    Did anyone think it was sexist for Fey to compare how Palin was treated by the media versus Hillary? They said everything clearly in the skirt. The same people who are now crying sexism about Palin were the SAME ones saying sexist shit about Clinton.

    Holy fuckin double standard...

    Typical Republican bullshit and disinformation. If someone takes a crack a Palin it's "sexist".

    If a person says anything even remotely associated with women (like the lipstick on a pig analogy) it's a "sexist personal attack against Palin".

    If your opponent draws analogies between the recent stock market/big corporation woes and Republican economic policies you disarm the rather valid concerns by accusing your opponent of "trying to politicize the issue".

    The tactic: disarm any criticism or valid observation by demonizing the person making the point.

    Typical Republican bullshit.

    Meh, I think it rich of the side that calls sexism all the time (note "sexist shit about Hillary") to get mad when someone else does it, regardless of their prior committment or lack thereof to political correctness. All it should illustrate is the fundamental flaw of political correct bs when in practice: it only matters when they're attacking something you care about.


    EDIT: and to clarify, I don't think the skit was sexist in the slightest. Fucking hysterical. Even my (ugh) stauch Republican mother saw fit to call me laughing about it

    One of my favorite lines was from Hillary (Amy Poehler), "I didn't want to be the first woman President. I only wanted to be President. I just happen to be woman."

    I love Tina Fey and Amy Poehler... i think they're both fucking HALARIOUS.... It sucks that they are not doing Weekend Update together anymore...

    Does anyone watch 30 Rock or Arrested Development? Tina Fey nails it and Amy Poehler makes guest appearances in her husbands (Wil Arnet's) show.
