Spovangelist: But is she crazy?

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?

Why Go To Spokane Besides Meth?

Spokane, Washington. Ah, yes. There are so many reasons not to go there – the considerable excess of Wal-Marts, the tweaked-out, drug-addled zombie people, and for every Smartcar modestly obeying traffic in Seattle, there are two over sized, gas-guzzling pick-up trucks in Spokane running over flowers and babies. Yet here I am, making up a list of reasons why you should drive there on Friday. Well, it’s all about the love – G. Love, that is/Gwendolyn Elliott, Seattle Weekly. More here.

Question: Can you list 3-4 good reasons to go to Spokane?
