Chutzpah Award Nominee
News Item: McCain adviser Fiorina calls Fey's Palin impression "sexist"
So yes, an impression of two women by two actresses, is "sexist"? Wow, imagine the reaction on the right if Obama ever called something racist, something he has barely done throughout the campaign. "Race card! Race card!" "Duke lacrosse! Duke lacrosse!"

It's not just chutzpah, it's logical impossibility. The sketch is sexist-proof: two women, one substantive, the other not. Because they are both women, the distinction in substance must --MUST-- be attributed to a quality apart from gender.
