Last night on "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart addressed Sarah Palin's "Mama Grizzly" coalition and the media's interpretation that Palin is now a feminist leader. Stewart brought on Senior Women's Issues Correspondent Kristin Schaal to discuss who these "Mama Grizzlies" are and what they mean to Palin's political movement.
"Mama Grizzlies? It sounds like Sarah Palin's strategy is to release, for lack of a better word, killing machines into the legislative process," Stewart said, after showing Pain's ad invoking conservative moms.
Schaal pointed out that "Mama Grizzlies" aren't killing machines, "they're 'protecting machines'" who, as Palin believes, can stop "Obama, Pelosi and Reid and what they're doing to our country."
Throwing aside the idea that protecting children somehow equals the halting of liberals in power, Stewart asked if liberal moms also care about their children. "Absolutely not," Schaal explained. "Liberals aren't bears, if anything they're like gerbils. They'll eat their young if their welfare check's late."
