You might recall the email I got from the feminist who objected to my column on Kate’s book. She’s chimed in a few times with a lot of dialogue straight out of central casting. She wrote back again in response to my post saying I had “great sympathy” for Mrs. Alito. Here’s her response, the intellectual rigor and class of which speak for themselves. But just so you don’t deluge me with email, let me note that I pointed out to her that Cindy Sheehan wasn’t criticized for losing her son. She was criticized for exploiting her son in shameless and myriad ways. Anyway, for your amusement and edification:
Subject: “Great sympathy for Mrs. Alito???”
Now that’s too much.
Do you have great sympathy for Cindy Sheehan, who had to hear the
worst kind of insults from the likes of O’Reilly and Limbaugh because
she LOST HER SON in Iraq? What exactly did Mrs. Alito do, except be
married to Mr. Alito?
Or perhaps you have great sympathy for Mrs. Clinton because of all the
horrible things that were said and continue to be said about herself
and her husband and her daughter?
Mrs. Alito cries once, either as a tactical move, or because she
realized that her husband may actually not get to be on the supreme
court, and now she has your “great sympathy.” how partisan of you. no
one even attacked her — if kennedy had called her a slut, that woud
be something, but not even that happened. 🙂
she was crying, assuming it was genuine, out of sheer terror, possible
disappointment and frustration that these jerky liberals won’t let her
extremist husband control people’s lives from the highest bench there
is. why does that deserve “great sympathy” more than a myriad other
Sorry, lady, crying is BS. Don’t go to the hearings if you’re going to
cry, or don’t expect sympathy for it.
