From Kim Priestap at Wizbang:
“America, this is what a feminist looks like”
Who said that about Sarah Palin? Would you believe the president of LA’s National Organization for Women, Shelly Mandel? Amazing! This is quite a moment for her to push back against the pressure from the feminist groups who see Sarah Palin as a traitor because she’s a Republican and pro-life who actually lived her principles. Let’s hope more mainstream, liberal feminists come out of their closets and support Sarah because, as Shelly said, Sarah supports women’s rights, equal pay, Title 9, and the middle class. She has integrity and demands it from others.

Priestap speculates this endorsement may be why Palin made an unscheduled visit to California.
EDIT: Allahpundit at Hot Air describes Mandel’s comments as an introduction but doesn’t mention an endorsement. Ace is there and describes it as an introduction, too, but also notes the “this is what a feminist looks like — Sarah Palin.” I can’t see the video now so you watch and be the judge. [Dana says Mandel "supports and endorses Palin although she does not agree with her on every issue." Thanks, Dana.]
FWIW, I think I’m arguing with myself. Why would the NOW President do this if it wasn’t an endorsement?
