The Obvious Point (Among Stars in the Sky)

Sarah Wood (@sarahwoodwriter): "That's not how feminism works. It's not about supporting any woman. She's still speaking for a misogynist." [via Twitter, 24 July 2017]

This is perhaps as good a moment as any to remind that, generally speaking, when conservatives describe politics they disdain, they tend to appeal to their own mockery. A deeper examination might compare and contrast the manner in which Republicans viewed black voters during the Obama years, that it can only be the skin color and not the quality of politician, with Charlie Kirk’s apparent idea that a woman achieving prominence ought to be celebrated in a special way with no regard for what makes her prominent.

Charlie Kirk: Why isn’t the feminist left celebrating @SarahHuckabee becoming press secretary? Obama never had a woman press sec. First in many years!

Sarah Wood: That’s not how feminism works. It’s not about supporting any woman. She’s still speaking for a misogynist.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is also, by the way, our first off-camera White House Press Secretary in many years.
