McCain adviser calls SNL skit "sexist"  

If anyone can please explain to me exactly what the hell McCain adviser Carly Fiorina is talking about in this interview, I would really appreciate it. Because I have been racking my brain, and I can't understand why she's calling Tina Fey's representation of Sarah Palin "sexist." It really pisses me off that Republicans only play the gender card when it's convenient for them.

What next?

    My partner suggested that Republicans don't understand feminism--or only a very basic notion of feminism--and hence think that they can throw the word "sexist" around when anything is said about their female candidate and people will believe them. Or they're just idiots. Manipulative, hypocritical idiots.

    I will just repeat Amy Poehler and say I am frankly surprised to see they care about sexism. Do they even know what sexism is? Obviously not, because they only seem to throw the word around when anyone criticizes Palin... they could give 2 shits when people (mostly, THEM) criticize Clinton in ACTUAL sexist ways.

    Apparantly, it's okay to be sexist as long as it's against a Democrat woman.

    Oh, and saying anything negative - even if it is a legitimate concern that has nothing to do with her gender or sex - is sexist, just because of her vagina.
