From this Thursday's The Five on Fox News, regular and Caribou Barbie fan-girl Andrea Tantaros, after an entire segment bashing President Obama and Democrats as being the ones really waging the "war on women" decided to take a cheap shot at Obama supporter, Sandra Fluke, saying that "no woman should aspire to be her."

There's nothing like Fox to bring us a huge, heaping, helping of false equivalencies and projection with the attacks leading up to this one, and the talking heads on Fox pretending that Republicans would not be ones happy to take us back to the fifties with women's reproductive rights.

And to add insult to injury that was followed by one of the many women who are making a living as eye candy for the Fox misogynist channel, simultaneously doing a leg shot for Fox, while attacking Sandra Fluke as someone "no woman should aspire to be."

Sorry Andrea, but I think the law student who hasn't reduced herself to being a sad joke and an attempt to make sure horny old men who watch Fox want to stay tuned in and hasn't reduced herself to the leg shot in four or five inch pumps on the left side of the screen wins this one.

If there's a woman the rest of us should be aspiring to be, it's the one who decided to work hard and hope it leads somewhere by getting an education. It's not the one that has to count on her looks until she's tossed aside for the latest model with better legs and little regard to whether there's a thought in her head by Rupert Murdoch.
