Sarahcuda Nibbling at Unattractive Psuedo-Feminist Professors

Just another sad example of the utter garbage you often get when you send your children to college. Here are some choice words about Sarah Palin from Professor Wendy Doniger of the University of Chicago's Divinity School:
Her greatest hypocrisy is in her pretense that she is a woman. The Republican party's cynical calculation that because she has a womb and makes lots and lots of babies (and drives them to school! wow!) she speaks for the women of America, and will capture their hearts and their votes, has driven thousands of real women to take to their computers in outrage. She does not speak for women; she has no sympathy for the problems of other women, particularly working class women.
But I'm sure Hillary Clinton speaks for America's women, right? A woman whose entire career was (and let's hope it's past-tense) rooted in being married to a powerful man? Isn't feminism all about breaking down traditional barriers on your own, attaining positions of leadership previously reserved for men, and being strong enough to keep a family together while still having a career and aspirations?

Also, according to Wikipedia, Ms. Doniger was born in 1940. Does that picture look like a 68 year old woman to you? You aren't ashamed of your age, are you Wendy? Sorry, but your hypocrisy is much more palpable.

Update: If you read the comments in response to her column, the negative reactions are winning by about 500-1. Among my favorites:

It is clear that modern feminism isn't about women at all. I have known for years the ugly secret is that the leaders of "the feminist movement" are a bunch of lesbians who hate men. It's fine to be a lesbian, but it's not okay to denigrate those who don't agree with you. The reason I had the light bulb come on about liberal think [sic] is that they really are NOT open-minded. They have small boxes they put everyone in, and will be outraged if you dare try and escape. It's really sad, but also gratifying to see this type of stuff coming to fuller light.
Also, Charles Nelson Reilly called. He wants his glasses back.
