Carly Fiorina continues the umbrage-fest:

"[T]he portrait [on "SNL"] was very dismissive of the substance of Sarah Palin, and so, in that sense, they were defining Hillary Clinton as very substantive and Sarah Palin as totally superficial," Fiorina argued. "I think that continues the line of argument that is disrespectful in the extreme and yes, I would say, sexist, in the sense that just because Sarah Palin has different views than Hillary Clinton does not mean that she lacks substance."

Now Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are sexists. I just want to be clear here--Fiorina is working on behalf of a guy who once made an incredibly mean joke about Chelsea Clinton, and giggled after one of his supporters called Hillary Clinton a bitch. I don't know if either of those instances were sexist. The first was shockingly cold-hearted, and a serious pot-calls-kettle-black moment given McCain's own lich-like visage. The second was, at best, awkward. I can not believe people will go for this. It just boggles the mind.

UPDATE: Video guys. I don't know, maybe she was caught of guard. I'm trying here. Work with me people.
