Quote reblogged from really, fox news? with 717 notes

Megyn Kelly is badass — that guy was calling maternity leave “a racket.” He was saying women shouldn’t get paid for it, and Megyn Kelly was just like “RARRRRRRR.” Never get between a mama grizzly and her maternity leave!

She’s making quite a spirited argument: that workers are entitled to certain benefits, and that society has an interest in protecting these benefits! Which is great — and really weird, because that’s not the Fox Megyn Kelly that I thought I knew. …She used to hate entitlement programs, mandated benefits and things like that.

…You see, this is the problem with entitlements: they’re really only entitlements (to you) when it’s something other people want. When it’s something you want, they’re a hallmark of a civilized society; the foundation of a great people. “I just had a baby and found out maternity leave strengthens society! But since I still have a job, unemployment benefits (for everyone else) are really socialism.

More simply, (plays George Carlin’s famous “Have you noticed that their stuff is ‘shit,’ and your shit is ‘stuff’?” bit). Once again, George Carlin says in a sentence what took us three-and-a-half minutes.

So either Megyn Kelly has inadvertently exposed the hypocrisy at the heart of conservative demonization of unions and the working class, or — Oh my God, it’s worse than we thought: Megyn Kelly is suffering from post-partum compassion. (Beat.) It’ll pass.

JON STEWART, on Megyn Kelly decrying a fellow conservative’s remarks calling paid maternity leave a “racket,” on The Daily Show.

Brilliant.
