Update: If you missed the show and need it to judge (and of course you shouldn’t vote without hearing it) it’s here.

And please patronize our advertisers, they make the show and my mortgage payments possible.

Update 2: It’s interesting to note that people who heard the debate live tended to vote for Attila and people who listened to the podcast tended to vote for Stacy thus far.

If you are a blogger on the right (or a feminist on the left) you will NOT want to miss today’s DaTechGuy on DaRadio on WCRN AM 830 on the dial today at 10 a.m. EST.

Today Robert Stacy McCain of the American Spectator and The Other McCain and Little Miss Attila of the Right Network and Little Miss Attila.com take their great feminism debate off of the blog pages and onto to 50,000 Watts of airwaves.

The question: “Should conservatives want to be called feminists or should that word be anathema to them?”

You’ve seen the posts, you’ve read the comments now listen in to the live debate (and call in if you wish)

Today 10 a.m. on WCRN, and if you aren’t in the range of our 50,000 Watts remember you can listen online here.

Update: Extra ‘be” pulled

Tricking NOW into defending Sarah Palin from Misogynistic remarks. After all as NOW’s rep pointed out:

The National Organization for Women (NOW) refused to comment on Maher’s use of the derogatory term. A rep told FOXNews.com it is a “known fact” that NOW does not correspond with FOX News.

Yeah what a dirty trick of Fox to ask NOW to comment on a story, the next thing you know they might want an actual interview!

How horrible that they were compelled to say this:

“You’re trying to take up our time getting us to defend your friend Sarah Palin. If you keep us busy defending her, we have less time to defend women’s bodies from the onslaught of reproductive rights attacks and other threats to our freedom, safety, livelihood, etc,” wrote Bennett. “Sorry, but we can’t defend Palin or even Hillary Clinton from every sexist insult hurled at them in the media. That task would be impossible, and it would consume us. You know this would not be a productive way to fight for women’s equal rights, which is why you want us stuck in this morass.” …

Yes because we all know a public statement will so disrupt their schedule that they won’t be able to do anything else. Sister ToldJa gives the lie to this nonsense:

Personally, I couldn’t care less about any statement – or lack thereof – coming from so-called “women’s groups” denouncing the sexist treatment of female public figures, no matter their respective party affiliations. In fact, conservative women don’t need any defending by any duplicitous “progressive feminist groups.” But all the same it’s worth pointing out when they don’t. More importantly, it’s imperative to know why they don’t, which I explained above. Simply put: You’re not 100% woman unless you buy 100% into the radical liberal feminist dogma about “reproductive rights.”

Yeah NOW has been busy helping advance women unlike Sarah Palin:

When it comes to politics, who was the one who helped provide a boost to the election of the first female Governor of New Mexico, Susana Martinez, first female Governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, or first female governor of Oklahoma, Mary Fallin? It certainly wasn’t NOW. NOW has asserted that they won’t waste their time defending Secretary Clinton or Governor Palin, both of whom stated just last week that it’s time for a female president. Female candidates and women in general can officially say, “women need NOW like a fish needs a bicycle”.

In my opinion the real reason why NOW is so angry about defending Palin from Maher’s remarks is that they agree with Mahar and would love to be able to say it aloud, but that would give away the game.

I guarantee we will be talking about this on our April 2nd show.

OK guys dueling posts are just not going to do anymore. No more just riding the wave. It’s put up time.

Robert Stacy McCain and Little Miss Attila have both accepted my invitation to go head to head on the subject of feminism and conservatism on April 2nd from 10 a.m. to Noon on DaTechGuy on DaRadio.

If you are a blogger and want to see two of the best in the conservative stable toe to toe. You won’t want to miss this one.

Oh and if you are a blogger and have been looking to pick a week to start advertising on the show where you will get Maximum attention from blog readers. This is it.
