sexist?



From this article, someone from the McCain camp says about the SNL skit starring Tina Fey as Palin and Amy Poehler as Clinton (if you haven't seen it, you're way behind - just google it and watch it already):

“The portrait was very dismissive of the substance of Sarah Palin, and so in that sense, they were defining Hillary Clinton as very substantive, and Sarah Palin as totally superficial,” McCain advisor Carly Fiorina told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Monday. “I think that continues the line of argument that is disrespectful in the extreme, and yes I would say sexist.”


Hoo-kay. Implying that Hillary Clinton is substantive while Sarah Palin isn't is sexist. That's a new one.

It's obviously because Hillary is a man.

I don't think it was sexist, its a parody intended for humor. Oh, and also what aurora said... hehe :)

i think they don't know what the word "sexist" means. they probably have some sense of the general meaning of the word, they've heard it thrown at the shit they pull often enough. at least they seem to understand that it somehow involves a woman.

give them a few more years and maybe they'll figure it out
