Review And Analysis Of Michelle Malkin's Editorial: Liberal Women Drown In Whines!

635 words - 3 pages

AP III Analytical Response AssignmentIn the editorial Liberal Women Drown in Whines, author Michelle Malkin uses various strategies to help support the article's harsh and biased tone. Malkin uses invective language, diction, and quotations out of context in an attempt to demonstrate what she views as the hypocrisy of certain female supporters of Senator John Kerry. To further enhance her views, she handpicks absurd remarks made by female celebrities in support of their candidate. Malkin also uses wit quite effectively, however the reader's reaction to this wit will no doubt depend on their political preference. The editorial takes the viewpoint that the discussion of any issue other than a Bush-supported position of the Iraq war is an outrageous and misguided ordering of the nation's priorities.After introducing us to the allusion to "Rosie the Riveter" as the ideal female from World War II, Malkin launches into an attack on modern day liberal feminist viewpoints. Malkin uses invective language and diction to describe the hypocrisy she observes in women she terms Sniveling Sallys. By labeling these women and their causes with phrases such as "self-absorbed", "sanctimonious", and "ostentations", she sets up the reader to agree with the manner in which she belittles their causes. In each case she pairs her invective description with what she views as a hypocritical counterpoint. Thus, we are shown the hypocrisy of the "sanctimonious environmentalists who oppose ostentatious energy consumption (except for their air-conditioned Malibu mansions and Gulfstream jets and customs Escalades".While a Bush supporter may revel in Ms. Malkin's descriptions, as a Kerry supporter, I found this to be absurd, unfair, and offensive. These descriptions do not depict the voice of all women who support an intellectual, honest discussion of issues in opposition to the current administration. I think that the use of these extremes is unfair, which...
