“America, this is what a feminist looks like”

Who said that about Sarah Palin? Would you believe the president of LA’s National Organization for Women, Shelly Mandel? Amazing! This is quite a moment for her to push back against the pressure from the feminist groups who see Sarah Palin as a traitor because she’s a Republican and pro-life who actually lived her principles.

There’s video. The Wizbang post concludes:

Shelly gave a wonderful endorsement. I’m thrilled to have her as a fellow Sarah Palin supporter. If other feminists and NOW presidents come out and trash Shelly, we need to stand behind her and give her a lot of support.

I was talking to my husband about this and told him that this is probably the reason why she went to California. The endorsement of the president of one of the largest chapters of NOW is huge, which explains why the MSM isn’t reporting it.

A quick Google News search comes up with three (3) stories on Shelly Mandel. Story #1, MSNBC:

Palin Repeats Ayers Line in CA

CARSON, Calif. — Last night, Palin reiterated her claims that Obama “sees America as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who target their own country.”

“Turns out one of his earliest supporters is a man, who according to the New York Times, was a domestic terrorist,” Palin told about 10,000 supporters at a rally at the Home Depot Center. She was referring to William Ayers, a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s, which sought to bomb the Pentagon and US Capitol.

“No, this is not a man who sees America as you and I see America,” she said of Obama. “We see Americas as a force for good in this world. We see an America of exceptionalism.

“Our opponent is someone who sees America as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who target their own country.”

Eighth paragraph down in the piece:

Palin was introduced by Shelly Mandell, the Los Angeles chapter of the National Organization for Women.

Update: Note that slight error. Mandell isn’t the President of the LA chapter of NOW, apparently she’s the entire membership!

Mandell said she was supporting Palin as an individual; NOW’s national political action committee has backed Obama.

The other two links are from September.

Yahoo News? Nada.

CNN? “No Results”
