Even more liberal sexism

From classy Vanity Fair / upper west side critic James Wolcott:
I'm sure Sarah Palin never requires similar crib notes for the art of amour. Todd puts on the pirate suit, she pretends to be Rhonda Fleming, and the ocean waves heave to the rhythm of their rocking.

It's as if someone told all the fey intellectuals that they can play sexist super stud, and write about a politician's "boobs", and speculate about her sex life, as long as the subject is Palin.

Substitute the name of any Democratic female politician and her spouse in that sentence, and Wolcott would be expelled from "progressive" New York art and dance circles.
