Sarah Palin, False ProphetKate Harding6/11/10 12:30pmFiled to: Palinologysarah palin newsweekSaint sarahSarah Palin feminismFeminismevangelical christiansTopsarah palin3752EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkAccording to the cover story in the latest Newsweek, even if Sarah Palin never runs for office again, she can single-handedly change the face of politics by instructing her loyal army of "conservative feminist" mama bears how to vote. Shudder.AdvertisementWrites Lisa Miller, "[H]er pro-woman rallying cry, articulated in the evangelical vernacular, together with the potent pro-life example of her own family, puts Palin in a position to reshape and reinvigorate the religious right, one of the most powerful forces in American politics. The Christian right is now poised to become a women's movement-and Sarah Palin is its earthy Jerry Falwell... With her new faith-based message, Palin gathers up the Christian women that traditional feminism has left behind."Hoo boy. That's a lot to take in, first thing in the morning.I already covered what I think of "Sarah Palin Feminism," but once more with feeling: Feminism did not leave conservative Christian women behind. Conservative Christian women rejected feminism. This is not a trivial distinction.
