9. Jessica Grose
Jessica Grose is the managing editor of DoubleX, was previously an editor for Jezebel.com and has written for the New York Times, the Village Voice and Salon. In short, she’s one experienced leftist.
On September 5, 2008, Grose wrote a piece at Jezebel.com called “Why Sarah Palin Incites Near-Violent Rage In Normally Reasonable Women.”
In that piece she shows her extreme hatred for Palin in its full ugliness and tries to explain why ‘progressives’ such as herself hate the former Alaska governor so passionately.
What I’ve written on this site about Palin so far has been pretty restrained, considering what I feel for her privately could be described as violent, nay, murderous, rage. When Palin spoke on Wednesday night, my head almost exploded from the incandescent anger boiling in my skull. And I’m not the only one! I had simultaneous IM conversations with many friends, who said things like, “she seems like a fucking monster” and “this feminist wants to murk that idiotic cunt.”
Almost two years after Palin’s entry into the national spotlight, Grose continues to take digs at not only Sarah Palin, but also at her daughter Bristol. If she doesn’t deserve to be on this top ten list, I don’t know who does.
