Dažreiz viss ir pārāk sarežģīti - Jūana Nūrberja emuārā atradu interesantu linku uz amerikāņu kultūrkritiķes Kamillas Paglijas (Paglia) pārdomām par Sāru Peilinu. Manuprāt, Paglijai ir izdevis aprakstīt tieši to, ko es līdz šim tikai intuitīvi nojautu, ka Peilina, pirmkārt, ir pragmatiķe:

“I am still waiting for substantive evidence that Sarah Palin is a dangerous extremist. I am perfectly willing to be convinced, but right now, she seems to be merely an optimistic pragmatist like Ronald Reagan, someone who pays lip service to religious piety without being in the least wedded to it. I don’t see her arrival as portending the end of civil liberties or life as we know it.”

Bet, Paglijas vērtējums par Peilinu šobrīd ir visai interesants:

“Conservative though she may be, I felt that Palin represented an explosion of a brand new style of muscular American feminism. At her startling debut on that day, she was combining male and female qualities in ways that I have never seen before. And she was somehow able to seem simultaneously reassuringly traditional and gung-ho futurist. In terms of redefining the persona for female authority and leadership, Palin has made the biggest step forward in feminism since Madonna channeled the dominatrix persona of high-glam Marlene Dietrich and rammed pro-sex, pro-beauty feminism down the throats of the prissy, victim-mongering, philistine feminist establishment.”

Tā teikt – jauna tipa feministe. And why not?
