Quote of the Day

"There's a place in hell reserved for women who don't support other women."Sarah Palin, claiming she was quoting former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, though Albright's actual quote, in a twist of irony too awesome for words, is actually: "There's a place in hell reserved for women who don't help other women."

I just don't think I can even put into words the bitter, amused, angry, cynically satisfied, laugh-sob feeling I've got at the idea of an anti-choice woman, who doesn't give a fuck about protecting women from domestic and sexual assault and charges rape victims for their own rape kits, just for a start, misquoting Albright's quote about women who don't help other women and twisting it to imply that women who don't support her candidacy are going to hell. It's sort of a lightheady-inducing furydelight. I want to punch things and swoon while giggling maniacally in equal measure.

lol your ironic clusterfucktastrophied misquote
