- A Feminist Squirrel Finds A Nut

Jonah Goldberg, one of the establishment right's blind squirrels in the Feminist forest, has managed to find a nut. It's a piece on 'speaking while female' by some crazy academic from Berkeley. How lovely there is a 'too far' that women can go for him. The piece itself is in my mind, prototypical of Feminist complaints:

I am mad. I am mad because I am scared. And if you are a woman, you should be, too. Emailgate is a bitch hunt, but the target is not Hillary Clinton. It’s us.

The only reason the whole email flap has legs is because the candidate is female. Can you imagine this happening to a man? Clinton is guilty of SWF (Speaking While Female), and emailgate is just a reminder to us all that she has no business doing what she’s doing and must be punished, for the sake of all decent women everywhere. There is so much of that going around.

The best part about this rant is that it could literally be about anything. There are no real arguments offered, no facts. No... anything. Just anger and rage and wailing at the moon. The is the academic rhetorical equivalent of the blue haired psycho screaming nonsense at anti-abortion activists that we've all come to know and love from the youtube 'feminist fails' videos.

And you know it's got to be over the top if a bastion of chivalrous feminists like those at National Review find it objectionable.
