Palin's Title IX Flub

At a McCain-Palin campaign townhall get together:

"When asked by a former Hillary Clinton supporter to give details and examples of her "strategies and plan for economic empowerment for women," Palin provided few specifics.

"Now, I was a product of Title IX where legislation allowed that equal opportunity. Now if we have to still keep going down that road to create more legislation, to get with it in the 21st century, to make sure that women do have equality especially in the work place, then we're there because we understand that in this age we have all got to be working together," Palin said. "But yup, equality for women, for all, that's going to be part of the agenda and I thank you for that question."

Title IX has evolved into a quota system for gender parity in college varsity sports. When Palin was a kid, it wasn't. But it is now. She should know better.

How’d this even make the news? This must be one of those “important issues” the campaigns need to focus on, as the LibDems keep telling us! Lol…
