In remarks defending Gov. Palin on his show Today, Rodgers went into another rant about the Left and its failure to embrace Palin.

He said,

"As we have discussed before -- and it drove some of the left-wing bloggers crazy, of course -- but not only has Sarah Palin achieved what a lot of traditional feminists have always said they wanted -- a woman who can do it all, raise a family, take care of kids, succeed in her chosen career -- yeah, you would think, if they were consistent in their principles, they would be applauding her. She has done what they said they wanted women to be able to do. She's done it. But, again -- and this is what drove some of the left-wing nuts who torture themselves by listening to this program, drove them crazy -- I pointed out -- and if you have eyes, you can see it as an obvious fact -- the reason a lot of these women, these liberal women, hate her, is not only because she chose not to have an abortion, went ahead and had her last baby knowing that the child was going to have Down syndrome, and she's, "I don't care."

He added that, in his opinion, the reason for this and for the attacks on Palin are her beauty and....

"[Y]ou look at many -- perhaps most -- but many of the women who are professed leaders of the feminist movement in this country, and they're a bunch of hags." He added: "They couldn't get laid in a men's prison, let's be honest about it.  I mean, you talk about a bunch of two-baggers just look at 'em. God."

This is not the first time he has expressed his views on the feminist movement in this country, on September 17 Media Matters reported that Rodgers said,

"Look at these ugly skanks, who make up the female leadership of the Democratic Party. ... I mean, my God -- you know, guys sitting around, talking, perhaps in a bar someplace -- they have a way of scoring them. ... I know, it's sexist. It's sexist. It's unfair, and all of that, but they will look over a female who comes in and just make an announcement: How many drinks it would take before you'd jump her bones, you know."

He then adds...

"You look at most of the headline women of the Democratic Party, you're thinking, 'It's gotta be closing time and five drinks, and maybe not even then.' And that's what they're really PO'd about. [Gov.] Sarah Palin's good-looking and they hate that." Later in the same broadcast, Rodgers said: "Democrat [sic] women, admit it: You're nothing but a bunch of phonies. And I think we have to ask: Would you like Sarah Palin better if she got pregnant again and did have an abortion, because it's obvious, with a lot of liberal women, killing babies is the main priority they have. They can BS their way around it all they want, but bottom line: That's it. It's clear. It's obvious."

....There is more....

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
