And the Pulitzer Goes to....Kathleen Parker!

If you are not familiar with her work you are quite lucky. A good-and-polite survey can be found here. I have written several less polite posts about her misogyny.

It is odd how few people seem to have noticed her consistency on that one topic. Whether she's a Republican in other ways may vary but she is always one of the Aunts in Margaret Atwood's Handmaid's Tale.
Added later: This post is not criticizing Ms. Parker's writing or opinionating in general. I understand that nasty opinions can be well expressed and widely enjoyed. But I truly do not think that anyone so consistently hating on one large group would get these accolades if the group didn't happen to consist of women.
