The Home Stretch

Just read in the NY Times that conservatives see Sarah Palin’s future as very rosy. Even if she is not elected they will make a push for her as the presidential nominee in 2012. Guess my wish that she go away on November 5th will not happen. As a feminist theatre artist I stopped all male-bashing in my work as soon as Guerrilla Girls On Tour split from Guerrilla Girls in 2001. I find the prospect of continually confronting the conservative agenda in the form of Sarah Palin disheartening. Sure, she’s fodder for comedy but it is not very funny when some can‘t see the joke. How will the conservatives repair all the damage she herself has done to her image? We can only wait. Onwards, to the battle ground state of Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh for our last tour stop before the election.
