Identity Politics

From the annals of worst things said over the weekend, because there were so many:

Sarah Palin “quoting” Madeline Albright as having said, “There’s a place in hell reserved for women who don’t support other women.”

This, unfortunately for Sarah, was not what Madeline Albright said.  In fact it was this: “There’s a place in Hell reserved for women who don’t help other women.”

As they pointed out over The Plank, it’s kind of odd that the Republican Party is now trying to employ identity politics to get this woman to Washington, when said identity politics have irritated the GOP for years.

And then it hit me.

Identity politics might just work: Sarah Palin, winking and giggling and smiling all over the country, might just remind every woman in America of that bitch pretty girl in high school who thought she could flirt her way into anything.
