“Earlier this week, I praised Sarah Palin for embracing the term “feminist” when so many young women shun the f-word. Well I am reneging my praise, because now she’s taking the term and using it as a tool for petty divisiveness. Yesterday at a rally in Nevada, Governor Palin criticized Barack Obama for being a “faux feminist” according to the New York Times, because he didn’t choose Hillary Clinton as a running mate. “Our opponents think they have the women’s vote all locked up, which is a little presumptuous since only our side has a woman on the ticket,” she said yesterday. Really, Sarah? Really? You’re beating that old PUMA drum? Oh now it’s on. When you combine this with John McCain’s recent assertion that he chose Palin to counter the “liberal feminist agenda,” this amounts to a concerted, yet completely absurd effort on the GOP’s part to get women to vote for them.” —GOP Pinheads: Women Aren’t “Feminist” Unless They Vote For Sarah Palin

“Rosenblat eventually moved to New York. He was running a television repair shop when a friend phoned him one Sunday afternoon and said he wanted to fix him up with a girl. Rosenblat was unenthusiastic: He didn’t like blind dates, he told his friend. He didn’t know what she would look like. But finally, he relented. It went well enough. She was Polish and easygoing. Conversation flowed, and eventually talk turned to their wartime experiences. Rosenblat recited the litany of camps he had been in, and Radziki’s ears perked up. She had been in Schlieben, too, hiding from the Nazis. She spoke of a boy she would visit, of the apples she would bring, how he was sent away. And then, the words that would change their lives forever: “That was me,” he said” —Amazing Holocaust love story lives on - CNN.com
