Feminists: Ever More Ridiculous

They just grow more ridiculous.

Apparently, the feminists have written a letter to the leaders of ABC television -- both news and entertainment -- to protest two separate events: Elizabeth Vargas' stepping down from the ABC anchor chair and the cancellation of "Commander in Chief," the fictional story about the first female president.

How typical of the feminist movement in so many ways.

First, the elitism. Surely there are more pressing matters for feminists to worry about (including the status of women living under Islamofascist regimes) than whether a fictional program about a woman president is cancelled, and why a highly paid and credentialed journalist will now have to endure simply anchoring a more family friendly weekly program, rather than the nightly news.

Second, the presumption. Simply because Kim Gandy would be willing to effectively abandon a newborn and a three year old in pursuit of her professional ambitions, that doesn't mean either that it's the right choice -- or that Elizabeth Vargas should have to make it.

Finally, the cluelessness. Do these women know how petty they make the rest of us look?

The NOW gals think it's impossible to change your priorities. They are so ingrained in their "I, Me, Mine" mentality that they protest anyone who changes their mind to think about others - especially children.
