Here’s a pop quiz to help you jump-start your day and clear your mind for tonight’s vice presidential debate. Don’t worry. I won’t take grades. Everyone gets a gold star. But I want to know what you choose, so please leave a comment or Tweet me.
According to David Brooks, this thought experiment will help you reify your opinion about Sarah Palin. When you hear the phrase “like a woman” which song do you hum:
1. Bob Dylan’s Just Like A Woman
or 2. Shania Twain’s Man, I Feel Like A Woman?
According to Brooks, if you chose Dylan you probably hate Sarah Palin. If you chose Shania, you probably love Palin.
Personally, I hum Nina Simone’s cover of “Just Like A Woman.” But if Sarah channels Shania tonight, she might just win the debate.
