Minor premise: Sarah Palin is not a Democrat
Therefore . . . On Tuesday, the chair of the National Organization for Women Political Action Committee confirmed beyond cavil her group's name is a lie:
It is with great enthusiasm that I announce today, on behalf of the nation's oldest and largest women's rights organization, that the National Organization for Women Political Action Committee (NOW PAC) proudly endorses Sen. Barack Obama for President of the United States.As John Hawkins of Right Wing News observes:
It is no coincidence that I am joined in this announcement by so many allied organizations that collectively represent a broad and diverse cross-section of U.S. women. From teachers to social workers, from business owners to college students, women in this country are lining up behind the candidate who is out there every day standing up -- clearly and consistently -- for women. Women of all ages, races and ethnicities are coming together in support of Sen. Obama and his pledge to fulfill this country's promise of equal opportunity for our daughters as well as all our sons.
Although it is very unusual for us to endorse in a presidential election, this is an unprecedented candidate and an unprecedented time for our country.
NOW exists not to further the interests of women; it exists to further the interests of the Democratic Party.Rush Limbaugh concurs:
I've got some of the most outrageous stuff written about Sarah Palin by feminists. It's just delightful. They're over the top. They're imploding. They can't believe what has happened here, and as such, they are revealing who they really are. Some of these women who are writing -- and they have newspaper columns, San Francisco, Chicago, and so forth -- it's just fascinating to watch. It is making my day because they are proving to one and all everything that I have ever thought about them as feminists. It's not about women, it's about certain women. It's about liberal women. It's about things other than women's rights and women's issues and women cracking the glass ceiling. Nothing about that. It's all about just extreme liberalism.Which makes NOW "irrelevant."
