Salon strikes again: "Stepford wife in sexy librarian costume"... "a lady but no woman"..."f-uckable"..."political Viagra"..."cheerleader stage mom"..

Virulent, disgusting sexism. Alive and well in the American news media. Who's calling them on it? This online publication should NEVER be considered legitimate or serious in any way, shape or form, by anyone else in the media or politics ever again. Imagine if a conservative online news site - say, the American Spectator - uttered such virulently racist comments about Barack Obama.

It's ugly out there, folks. It's really, really ugly.

It doesn't stop with the comments summarized in the headlines. More from Salon's article author Cintra Wilson, referring to Sarah Palin:
  • "blow-up doll"
  • "their hardcore pornographic centerfold spread"
  • hot to cut the throat of all American women
  • Down's Syndrome baby ensures her own political ambitions
  • submissive, female Uncle Tommie
  • the Carmella Soprano of the GOP
  • White House bunny
  • "It is a kind of eerie coincidence that Sarah Palin is being sprung on the public at the same time as the bimbo/frat-boy titty comedy "House Bunny," which features a poster of a beautiful young lady with Playmate-style bunny ears, big, stupid eyes and her mouth hanging open like someone just punched her."
  • Levi Johnston is a "hapless, horny, condomless youth"
  • She wears a "virtual Burqa"
  • "I feel as horrified as a ghetto Jew watching the rise of National Socialism."
  • She's anti-life
  • "untethered from her own needs and those of her own family"
  • "If not, what the hell? John McCain should go the whole Hugh Hefner route and have eight V.P.s that all look exactly like Sarah Palin."

I would like to draw attention to http://cosmicvariance.com, a popular blog that is supposedly about science but plays host to some deranged comments. The chief blogger is a Daily Kos contributor who spoke at the Yearly Kos conference in Chicago. From their August 29 Palin post, comment #108:

Palin’s unmarried daughter is five months pregnant. A knocked-up teenager is not a tragedy or particularly surprising, but the news is hardly an argument for her mother’s stand against sex education in high school.

Comment #180: Prior to her one year as governor of Alaska, she was mayor of Wasilla, a small red neck town outside Anchorage.The average maximum education level of parents of junior high school kids in Wasilla is 10th grade. Unfortunately, I have to go to Wasilla every week to get groceries and other supplies, so I have continual contact with the people who put Palin in office in the first place. I know what I’m talking about.
