Ultra-feminist radical Camille Paglia's (whom I love dearly) introduction to Sarah Palin in 2008.

Here is Ultra-feminist radical Camille Paglia's (whom I love dearly) introduction to Sarah Palin in 2008. This paragraph is part of a wonderful column by Paglia written just after John McCain (whom she excoriates) introduced Palin as his running mate and her immortal VP acceptance speech at the Republican convention. 

Read the whole article at Salon LINK (who must have hated printing it as much as their leftist readers hated reading it as judged by most of their comments.) Of particular note is Paglia's comments on the hysterical leftist reaction to Palin, whom they saw as a dire threat to "The One" who had, up till then, steamrolled the McCain campaign-which hysteria continues to this day-five years later.

Good for Camille!

Pow! Wham! The Republicans unleashed a doozy — one of the most stunning surprises that I have ever witnessed in my adult life. By lunchtime, Obama’s triumph of the night before had been wiped right off the national radar screen. In a bold move I would never have thought him capable of, McCain introduced Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska as his pick for vice president. I had heard vaguely about Palin but had never heard her speak. I nearly fell out of my chair. It was like watching a boxing match or a quarter of hard-hitting football — or one of the great light-saber duels in “Star Wars.” (Here are the two Jedi, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn, going at it with Darth Maul in “The Phantom Menace.”) This woman turned out to be a tough, scrappy fighter with a mischievous sense of humor.
