Hear, hear!

För första gången på länge läser och lyssnar jag noga på vad som händer i ett val, synd att det inte är ett jag får rösta i. Gloria Steinem skriver intressant om Republikanernas vicepresidentkandidat:

Palin's value to those patriarchs is clear: She opposes just about every issue that women support by a majority or plurality. She believes that creationism should be taught in public schools but disbelieves global warming; she opposes gun control but supports government control of women's wombs; she opposes stem cell research but approves "abstinence-only" programs, which increase unwanted births, sexually transmitted diseases and abortions; she tried to use taxpayers' millions for a state program to shoot wolves from the air but didn't spend enough money to fix a state school system with the lowest high-school graduation rate in the nation; she runs with a candidate who opposes the Fair Pay Act but supports $500 million in subsidies for a natural gas pipeline across Alaska; she supports drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve, though even McCain has opted for the lesser evil of offshore drilling. She is Phyllis Schlafly, only younger.

Den där Palin verkar livsfarlig. I Sverige har vi Yvonne Andersson. Hon är inte krigshetsare, men resten.
