Reimer attacks Republican women (again)

Uh oh, another hate-filled hatchet job on a female Republican politician by Sun columnist Susan Reimer ("Please, no more flaky female candidates," Sept. 27).

Actually, she spewed her venom on two such ladies, Christine O'Donnell and Sarah Palin, for whom she seems to have a visceral hatred.

In a Sept. 2, 2008 column ("A woman — but why this woman?") Ms. Reimer characterized Ms. Palin as an "utterly unqualified woman," which is akin to what she wrote about Ms. O'Donnell in her recent column: "Please God. Not another ditz with baggage and a loopy belief system."

While her double-barreled attack on the aforementioned ladies was not quite as vicious as the verbal assault she launched against Ms. Palin during the 2008 Presidential campaign, it did cause me to wonder if Ms. Reimer has some sort of deep-seated emotional condition that precludes her addressing such matters in a rational manner.
