Now years removed from crying sexism over “lipstick on a pig,” former politician and current political pundit Sarah Palin appeared on Sean Hannity’s show Thursday night to weigh in on the latest twists in the “war on women” debacle.
Palin read texts and emails she had received from her sister and “apolitical girlfriends” in support of her cause.
“We don’t look to the president to speak for us,” Palin said, adding that she and her fellow “mama grizzlies” are turned off by the “divisiveness represented by Barack Obama and the people he surrounds himself with.”
Palin also claimed, as Republicans had throughout the day, that Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen — whose comments on Ann Romney were widely condemned — is affiliated with the DNC, insisting she “has the ear of the president.”
On Rosen’s comments on Ann Romney, and the ensuing chaos regarding women who choose to raise families over having a career, Hannity joked, “I thought liberals were pro-choice.”
