The idea of two females going at it seems to arouse the primal instincts of even the most timid of folks. Throw in the fact that, when two women do battle there is a chance of clothing being ripped off, and the promise of a good cat-fight always draws a big crowd. People can try to deny this fact all they want, but remember when, in school, people would mention that “Lisa is fighting Robin at 3 pm in the back baseball field,” and half the school ran out to watch, while some of them even took preemptive actions to distract the teachers before-hand, lest they interrupt the fight before it got good ? Type in the words cat-fight into the YouTube browser search window and see how many hits the cat-fight videos have gotten, and then come back to me and tell me how these facts are not true here.
Today we are witnessing a somewhat fictional version of the political cat-fight in some of the sensationalist headlines pitting conservatives Sarah Palin vs. Michelle Bachmann. From The DailyCaller and Matt Lewis, we see the following article: https://dailycaller.com/2011/06/07/bachmann-vs-palin-feud-hits-twitter/
Yes folks the actual title of the article is Bachmann vs Palin Feud hits Twitter. So, is this a real feud in the traditional sense, or is this just plain folderol ?
Folderol, for our younger readers is defined by thefreedictionary.com as:
shot was fired Tuesday by Ed Rollins, who only recently signed on to work for Bachmann’s potential campaign… ‘Sarah has not been serious over the last
couple of years,’ said Rollins. ‘She got the vice-presidential thing handed to her. She didn’t go to work in the sense of trying to gain more substance. She
gave up her governorship.'” Michael Glasser, Palin’s chief of staff, responded: “Beltway political strategist Ed Rollins has a long, long track record of taking
high profile jobs and promptly sticking his foot in his mouth. To no one’s surprise, he has done it again, while also fueling a contrived narrative about the presidential race by the mainstream media. One would expect that his woodshed moment is coming and that a retraction will be issued soon.” One thing’s for sure: Rollins has come a long way since his days as lead singer for Black Flag.
