Another Case of Missing the Point of Feminism with Sarah Palin

Invoice to women who want to be successful: WEAR A SKIRT.

Sarah Palin is a good VP choice because “men want to sleep with her,” says Donny Deutsch. He goes on to say that this is the golden ticket the feminist movement just hasn’t thought of yet after 40 years.

What I love most is that all the buzzers are going boing boing in this guy’s head when he thinks he’s made a crucial breakthrough – HAVE YOU CONSIDERED MAKING YOURSELF INTO A SEXUAL OBJECT!!?? Meanwhile any 16-year-old girl with even a mildly sophisticated upbringing can say it’s been going on since 34,000 BCE, and perhaps, feminists find the sexual objectification of women problematic for other reasons than being embarrased that conservatives thought of it first.

And perhaps the CEREAL BOX – O – CANDIDATE idea is just a little commodifying?

This video is like watching the really awful signer in the American Idol audition think he’s achieved vocal brilliance just before Simon Cowell’s brutal glare rips him apart. I feel bad for the female CNBC anchor who is trying to play ditzy to conceal what I can’t distinguish between annoyance and amusement.

But According to Deutsch this response would be dismissed as his “all Left-brained stuff, issues and all that – IT DOESN’T MATTER” (3:10).

The video came from Feministing.com (a blog I highly reccommend).
