I've never seen The Vagina Monologues. I mean, c'mon, it's called THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES—why would I? So, a question for the ladies: should I see The Vagina Monologues on DVD? Will I have any appreciation of it at all? Or will I hide my eyes in horror?
I've been thinking about Eve Ensler because she too has jumped on the oh-so-fun, kick-Sarah-Palin-in-the-nuts bandwagon, a ride I am certainly enjoying. But Ensler manages to brilliantly raise the rhetoric to the level of chilling metaphor: check out her piece, "Drill, Drill, Drill."
As a kind of counterpoint, I also stumbled across an essay by Camille Paglia, who defends Sarah Palin as a neo-feminist! Lest you think Paglia is a complete whackjob (I think the jury is still out), she does manage to explain Palin's popularity and use it as a sort of wake up call to Democrats to get their act together: check out "Fresh Blood for the Vampire."
The Ensler piece is sure to inspire, as the Paglia piece is meant to provoke.
And, no, this post is not to serve the majority of this blog's readership—women—'cuz you ladies can sniff pandering a mile away (see: Republican VP nominee). This post uses the word "vagina" a lot, which will undoubtedly draw much traffic from Google searches.... Hi, pervs!
By the way, I agree that it's not right for Obama to suggest that Sarah Palin is a pig. It's evident that he should've called her a FUCKING WHORE.
[Thanks to Louise Larsen for sending me the Eve Ensler piece.]
