My Feminist “Friend”

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

people?

Sorry, lady, crying is BS. Don’t go to the hearings if you’re going to

cry, or don’t expect sympathy for it.
