Sarah Palin is not a woman

This astonishing assertion comes from Wendy Doniger the (let me see if I have this right): Mircea Eliade Distinguished Service Professor of the History of Religions at the University of Chicago’s Divinity School

Here is what she said on newsweek.washingtonpost.com:
Her [greatest hypocrisy is in her pretense that she is a woman. The Republican party's cynical calculation that because she has a womb and makes lots and lots of babies (and drives them to school! wow!) she speaks for the women of America, and will capture their hearts and their votes, has driven thousands of real women to take to their computers in outrage. She does not speak for women; she has no sympathy for the problems of other women, particularly working class women. [Emphasis added.)
This, and the rest of Doniger's teeth-exposed essay, is why Palin's candidacy is so much fun; it sends the haut intelligentsia off the cliff, without their having the slightest clue that they're in midair.
