Awwwwwwwww. Isn't it so super cute when lady conservatives get all feministy? Sure, most of the time they agree with the conservative menfolk that if a woman cares about health care, she's a slut; that it's hahahahahaha hilarious to call Democratic women ugly; that equal pay for equal work is really unfair to employers who enjoy the 23 percent lady employee discount when signing paychecks; and that it's a damn shame we even let women vote.

But every now and then, they embrace their inner man-hatin' bra burner and get all women's liberation with their bad selves—sometimes for as long as 60 seconds!—before they remember their true place.

Today's example of radical conservative feminism comes to us from Gretchen Carlson, lady co-host of the Fox "News" show Fox & Friends, who stormed (and by stormed, I mean strolled while laughing) off the set of her own show:

KILMEADE: Women are everywhere. We're letting them play golf and tennis now. It's out of control.

CARLSON: You know what? [laughter] You know what.

KILMEADE: She's out.

CARLSON: You read the headlines. Since men are so great. Go ahead. Take them away.

Oh, she sure showed them, didn't she? She showed them so completely that ... she was back on set one minute later making "chick" jokes. Well, almost one minute later:

CARLSON: So now this story's definitely a chick story? Which is why I'm going to read it?

KILMEADE: This is total woman.

CARLSON: Oh, okay.

Take that, men! I am lady co-host, hear me roar! Or at least giggle.

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.
