Wolfson on Palin and sexism:

Similarly obnoxious and inappropriate are the numerous photographs floating around the internet that superimpose Gov, Palin's face on the cover of a fashion magazine or on the body of a woman in a bikini.  Objectifying Gov. Palin isn't going to win Barack Obama any votes.  

Thanks for that bold, clear-eyed assessment, Howard. Just the sort of advice that allowed Hillary to romp through the primaries. How foolish of Obama to think that circulating photos on the internet would be an effective strategy against McCain. So glad we have you in the party to issue these scintillating correctives.
