Margaret Atwood's Daffy "Message"

In an interview aired on CBC radio, you can actually hear the diva of dystopian fiction utter this deathless line: "Somebody tell the American right that The Handmaid's Tale is not a blueprint."


I think we'd all be better off, though, if somebody told Margaret Atwood that the blueprint for female oppression in our era is the property of another religion, and is written in Arabic.
