Andrea Dworkin, RIP

David Frum points us to this obituary in the NY Sun for radical feminist Andrea Dworkin.

Her ideas were well outside the mainstream, far to the left, but that's not to say that they didn't resonate elsewhere sometimes:
Increasingly pushed to the side in mainstream American feminism, Dworkin could deliver the odd zinger when provoked. "It will probably bring the FBI to my door, but I think that Hillary should shoot Bill and then President Gore should pardon her," she wrote in early 1998, at the height of the Lewinsky affair.
That quote was comparatively tame. The article goes on to say "For all her vituperation, interviewers and friends commented on Dworkin's sweetness in person."
