Y'all, I'm officially Sarah Palined out. My Google alerts have been seriously off the chain for the past two weeks, but it's getting to the point where I just can't face them every day. Yes, San Francisco Chronicle, I am aware that "Palin Candidacy Stokes Debate Among Women." No , Bonnie Chernin Rogoff, it's not Palin's "sudden popularity" that has feminists in a "snit." Yes, various religion- and motherhood-focused bloggers, we're all cognizant of the fact that both Christian women and mothers can be feminists. And listen, Us Weekly and similar publications, I never thought I would say this, but could you do me a favor and stick to coverage of the fashion foibles of Tori Spelling and the cast of Gossip Girl and not get all involved in comparing Palin's looks to those of Tina Fey and Megan Mullally? Because it's going to really ruin the new season of 30 Rock for me.
But I do want to point out that Katha Pollitt, is her inimitable fashion, has distilled all the Palin madness and hypocrisy wonderfully in her latest column for The Nation. Even if you're sick of the Palin-palooza, it's well worth your time.
