Quote of the Day (March 22, 2011)

Moe thinks the NOW lady protests too much
Moe Lane:
"Bill Maher was channeling his inner tough-guy-misogynist again and used a fairly crude sexual crudity in the process of lying about THAT WOMAN’s response to the disaster in Japan (because, well, Bill Maher)... Anyway, eventually NOW got sufficiently embarrassed to live up to its own standards and issue a condemnation. Very, very ungraciously... 'You’re trying to take up our time getting us to defend your friend Sarah Palin...' 'Friend?' Don’t you think that that is a rather dismissive and trivializing way to describe a former governor and vice presidential candidate who, by all accounts, is a potent and empowered figure in conservative/Republican circles? Who told NOW that they could make Sarah Palin into the Other on our 'behalf,' in other words? What gives them the right to define our associations?"
