Palin offers new reason why women should vote for her

Of all the stupid, shocking, uniformed comments Sarah Palin has made, this one vies for the top spot. At a rally in Carson, California yesterday, Palin offered a shocking justification for why women should vote for her. Claiming she was quoting former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Palin said:

"There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women."

Albright didn't say that, and certainly not in a political context. Albright, in a 2005 with the American Association of University Women publication, gave a wide ranging interview about how women can advance through education. She said,

“Mainly we’ve got to get women into the pipeline—many, many women—and then women have to help each other. My real motto is: There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.”

Palin is now evoking fear-of-God tactics as a reason to vote for her. Sarah - I'll gladly meet you in hell before I ever cast a vote for you.
