I haven't a clue why Glamour magazine has a politics blog -- aren't there any celebrity break-ups or diet tips to cover -- but nonetheless, they were smart enough to ask our Amanda Carpenter to contribute a weekly post

From today

The feminist blogosphere is up in arms because Mike Huckabee pardoned a rapist and signed a petition that asks women to “submit graciously” to their husbands, but these same bloggers give him a free pass on taxes.

This make me think of that terribly stereotypical Teen Talk Barbie from a few Christmases back. “Math class is tough!” she said.

I’d hate to think that taxes are too “tough” for the Barbie blogs to address today. After all, the Huckster’s record on taxes portends a much more dismal future for women, more than his record on crime or a little unwelcome evangelizing.
