Victoria Jackson—you might remember her from her time on Saturday Night Live—declares Sarah Palin "the perfect feminist" in a column on Andrew Breitbart's Big Hollywood. Palin "is beautiful, thin, even athletic, successful, happily married, a good mother and a grandmother. She’s got it all—everything those Suffragettes were fighting for back in 1920. Not only can she vote, she got voted for! And, she was a great Governor," Jackson writes.

Jackson loves "the way the Palins navigate Sarah’s fame," always looking like they're "on a date" at events, where Todd Palin watches his wife "shine," and then embraces her "back into the SUV of safety. That is Feminism. A feminine woman achieving goals with the blessing of her man," she writes. "Feminism. Such a strange word. When I hear it I first think of the most masculine and angry women, women with not a shred of femininity. Funny how words are. Then, I think of the meaning they want it to hold. And that word is Sarah Palin." For more on Palin—including Jon Stewart's latest rant about her—click here.
