The Irony of PDS: Anti-Palin Steinem Column Runs in Saudi Paper

Politics makes for strange bedfellows, goes the old saying. That being the case, I hope Gloria Steinem has a bedtime burqa.


Here's an irony to start your Iftar meal tonight: Saudi Arabia, where a woman must have permission from a male relative or her husband before traveling, will nevertheless run a Gloria Steinem column in its main English-language daily about the sufferings of American women (and their impending doom if Sarah Palin makes it to the White House). 

To be fair to Steinem, the column first ran in the LA Times, but all the same, the irony may be the tastiest thing the veteran feminist has ever half-baked.
