Palin claims a 'cackle of rads' has hijacked the term 'feminist'

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) preceded her endorsement of six more female candidates Tuesday with a tweet that asked, "Who hijacked term: 'feminist'?"

She answered: "A cackle of rads who want 2 crucify other women w/whom they disagree on a singular issue; it's ironic (& passé)."

The tweet appeared to be addressing liberal women's campaign group Emily List, which, while announcing a new promotion titled "Sarah Doesn't Speak for Me," had tweeted Tuesday that "Just as Palin tries to redefine feminism, @emilyslist redefines the mama grizzly."

The tweet also linked to a press release for the campaign and included the hashtag #sarahdoesntspeakforme, which the group continued to use Wednesday.

Emily's List's feed later noted the Palin tweet:

Palin responds ( on behalf of the sisterhood, but 65.3% of her candidates are men. #SarahDoesntSpeakforMe

Coincidentally or not, Wednesday is the 90th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
