Palin Derangement Syndrome is again on full display. Liberal women, primarily from the Northwest, begin twitching and flailing, visibly perturbed, their MAC make-up melting as their internal thermometer is heating way past the boiling point.
The New York Daily News has a piece about the love/hate relationship to Mrs. Palin. On the left, it really boils down to Bush Derangement Syndrome by proxy (I coined this term, just now, but please feel free to spread it around.)
But scratch a politically active opponent of Bush White House policies and fury erupts.
"She was this glossy, telegenic figurehead for a police state," said Wolf, a former Al Gore campaign adviser.
Wolf sees Palin as an extension not of McCain but of the current White House.
In addition to Bush Derangement Syndrome by proxy, there's more. My friend Phylis Schlaffley has it all scoped out (naturally.)
"...The feminist tirades against Sarah are mostly so tiresome, but one line of their complaints is really funny. After 40 years of telling wives and mothers to get out of the home (which Betty Friedan called "a comfortable concentration camp"), put their children in day care (tax-funded, of course) and join the workforce, these same feminists now tell Sarah to stay home with her children.
Sarah doesn't need feminist approval for her lifestyle; the only person whose OK she needs for her double career as mother and politician is her husband's, and he seems very happy with Sarah.
Sarah Palin is an exemplar of a successful, can-do woman, and the feminists simply don't know how to deal with her. I hope she will usher in a new era where conventional wisdom recognizes that feminist negativism is ancient history and American women are so fortunate to live in the greatest country on Earth."
