Sally Quinn
Sally Quinn, bad for women everywhere.
Today's flaming dish of burning stupid—actually published two days ago but just hitting my radar today—Sally Quinn writes about Huma Abedin:
Though her friends say she is strong and resolute and defiant, sadly she makes all women look like weak and helpless victims. She was not standing there in a position of strength. It was such a setback for women everywhere.
Really, Sally? Really? One woman's private decision about her personal relationship with her erring husband is a setback for women everywhere?

Horseshit. Just stunning, mind-boggling horseshit.

What any woman decides to do inside the complexity of her own marital relationship has absolutely no bearing on any one woman anywhere. Much less is a "setback" for us all.

Or as one commenter at the foot of the column put it to Quinn:

This from a woman who began an affair with her married boss, broke up his marriage, and proceeded to re-make hershelf as some perfect Christian woman. Really? Maybe we should let Ms. Abedin deal with her marriage with some privacy.

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.
