Because Jane Hamsher is So-oo-oo Unfamiliar With Entitlement

Hat tip to Jeff Fecke at Alas, a blog

Ugh! This is why I detest Jane Hamsher. Can it get any more sexist than the tripe she's posted here? Today, on The Huffington Post, Hamsher writes about Caroline Kennedy's interest in being appointed to the senate seat that Hillary Clinton will be vacating to join Barack Obama's administration in January. Clearly, Hamsher doesn't think much of Kennedy but was this necessary?

"Really? She's 'making calls this morning to alert political figures to her interest?' I guess it was either that or get her nails done."

Really? Is Hamsher sure she wants to go there? Her own over-sized sense of entitlement has been noted many times over the years. I just love when privileged, white Americans like Hamsher try to pretend as if they have any idea what it's like to be a part of the world's "unwashed masses".

Isn't it funny that this article was written by the same person who also once wrote:

"No shit. Why is it the women are taking crap for this — from other women? One need look no further than the cracks about blond hair and tits from self-described “feminists” to see the reason for the sad state of feminism in this country today."

Thanks Jane, for showing why your brand of feminism is in such a sad state today.
