Who’s Older? Phyllis Schlafly, Gloria Steinem, or Sarah Palin?

Answer: Phyllis Schlafly. She was born in 1924, and will turn 86 years old next month. Gloria Steinem is ten years younger than Schlafly. Born in March of 1934, Steinem called Sarah Palin (who was born in February of 1964):

Phyllis Schlafly, only younger.

Who do I like best of the three?

Why, Gloria Steinem, of course!

I love Gloria Steinem; she is refreshingly free of bullshit. And she will be remembered a century from now as one of the great women of the 20th century. The other two will be remembered as crackpots.

But I don’t agree with Gloria Steinem that Sarah Palin is Phyllis Schlafly. I think Sarah Palin seriously channels Nancy Sinatra:
