Your bird-seed section is nonpareil

Heeding a commenter's advice (to Whet, technically), I took a look at what Camille Paglia had to say about Sarah Palin. And was reminded immediately why you can never take anything Camille Paglia says seriously.

One reason I live in the leafy suburbs of Philadelphia and have never moved to New York or Washington is that, as a cultural analyst, I want to remain in touch with the mainstream of American life. I frequent fast-food restaurants, shop at the mall, and periodically visit Wal-Mart (its bird-seed section is nonpareil).

Do I actually need to explain to anyone here why this almost made me pee in my pants?

Seriously, though, even when she's talking about someone besides herself, she's full of horseshit--like the idea that if you're a feminist you have to admire Palin and her "indomitable spirit" somehow even if you don't agree with any of her ideas. No. No you don't. That's what feminism's about--the right to be judged on your wingnut views and not how you represent your gender.
