The bitter, bitter, bitter Gloria Steinem

After Sarah Palin's rousing, first-class convention speech, Gloria Steinem unleashed all ten fingernails with this nastiness in the Los Angeles Times. In it, she asserts that Palin's unworthiness partially flows from the fact that, "She was elected governor largely because the incumbent was unpopular..." In other words, a fluke.

If that's the case, Steinem needs to reminded of how Bararck Obama got to be elected a U.S. senator from Illinois: By the implosion of his opposition. In the Democratic primary, his major opponent, Blair Hull, was done in by revelations about ugliness in his marriage. His Republican opponent, Jack Ryan, in the general election was done in by...revelations about ugliness in his marriage. Left without a candidate and no credible volunteers, the desperate Republicans imported a natural disaster, Alan Keyes. In other words, Obama's election was arguably a fluke.
