Katha Pollitt reminds the Washington Post why it doesn't have more female readers.

You gotta love Katha Pollitt. Apparently she, too, caught wind of Charlotte Allen's Washington Post piece arguing that women are stupid. In a letter to the Post, she writes:

Fortunately, Charlotte Allen boils it all down for the fickle, Obama-crushing, Manolo-coveting, ignorant, conflict-averse, push-aroundable female voter: "Women Aren't Very Bright." Thanks for clearing that up! ... I'm looking forward to further installments, like "Female Suffrage: A Big Mistake" and "Why Education Is Wasted on Women." Followed by yet another round of, "Why Don't Women Read the Washington Post?"
