Ah, the delightful misogyny.

If you have the stomach for it, you really should check out the Neandertal thinking in the comments over at Kate's House of Dumbth at this aforementioned post.

I particularly like this cheap shot at the Post's Diane Francis:

I followed the Google link and saw that the National Post had one near the top of the listing with: “Why I love Sarah Palin”

Is Diane Francis going through “the change” or has she always been this loopy and hysterical??

Hahahahaha! "The change." Oh, Lord, the humour.

The democrats are koo koo for coco puffs. America will correct their mistake at the first opportunity.
Palin will win in 2012. All she has to do is run.

Apparently racism is alive and well over there too.

The Grand Rapids' low for that night was 36°. In Canadian, it's +2. Grand Rapids does indeed have a surfeit of nutcases, but none o them think 36° is "cold."

"The change" ... She's turned into a werewolf??

But seriously, I've never had much use for Diane Francis - I met her once at a talk in BC when I was 12, and asked her a VERY simple question about logging policy (which her talk was ostensibly about) and she gave some anti-environmental libertarian free-market answer that even *I* could see through. I tried to correct her factual misrepresentations, but my mom dragged me away...

However, the quoted paragraph is actually pretty good, about Palin and the lemmings. Except that I think she overestimates the lemmings.

I still don't. That she's seen the light now that her beloved neoliberalism has come crashing down all around her and she's come down from her post-Cold War American Triumphalism bender is nothing to credit.

These people are supposed to warn us about the potential failures at the time when something can done about them, not after it doesn't matter anymore.

She's in the same league as David Frum. Get other careers or retire already if you're looking to redeem yourselves.

Just go away and don't come back.

Those comments hurt me, physically.

I dunno. I think this is a perfect, collectible example of what happens to right-wingers when they deviate from the party line. Suddenly they're just another target for trash-talking, no matter what their previous efforts for The Cause have been (and in Francis' case, they were of yeowoman proportions).

Happened to Andrew Sullivan. Happened to Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs. Now it's happened to Diane Francis. No tears for her, but my usual visceral disgust at the way conservatives behave.

Why? I'd rather have Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh than Diane Francis and David Frum. That sugar-coated fascism that Conservatives and Republicans espouse is the real scary. Bring on Sarah and let's call a spade a spade!
