Tea Party Caucus leader Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., center, speaks at a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

Where are the feminists of the world to speak out against the sexism, the injustice, the assault on all the progress we’ve made as women in America?

By which, of course, I mean the rhetoric used to attack Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Nikki Haley, Cathy McMorris-Rodgers and other female Republicans — by both mainstream media and the rest of us.

No? Not offensive? Is it legit stuff powerful women into the tired-as-hell crazy/stupid/bitch/slut costume if they’re pro-life and anti-gay? More here.

Spovangelist, a local blog, takes a shot at those who label powerful women with pejorative adjectives like "stupid," and "crazy," and challenges those who are prone to name-calling to go a week without slinging insults.

What do you think? Care to take the Spovangelist challenge?
