Hillary: Obama Must Die
Of course, she is not really hoping for an assassination of Obama. She is just working to destroy his chances of winning this year's general election so that she has a chance to run against a 76 year old McCain in 2012.
But, what this does show is what everyone already knows. She will do and say anything, adopt any position, pit any "identity group" against any other, claim any form of victimhood available, to get what she wants. Narcissistic Personality Disorder in full view for the entire nation.
She is also willing to exploit the basic victim oriented tenets of contemporary Gender Feminism to the point that she undermines women. Peggy Noonan says it best. After describing truly great women, such as Golda Meir of Israel, Indira Gandhi of India, and Margaret Thatcher of the UK, she draws the contrast with Hillary Rodham.
So, to address the charge that sexism did her in:
It is insulting, because it asserts that those who supported someone else this year were driven by low prejudice and mindless bias.
It is manipulative, because it asserts that if you want to be understood, both within the community and in the larger brotherhood of man, to be wholly without bias and prejudice, you must support Mrs. Clinton.
It is not true. Tough hill-country men voted for her, men so backward they'd give the lady a chair in the union hall. Tough Catholic men in the outer suburbs voted for her, men so backward they'd call a woman a lady. And all of them so naturally courteous that they'd realize, in offering the chair or addressing the lady, that they might have given offense, and awkwardly joke at themselves to take away the sting. These are great men. And Hillary got her share, more than her share, of their votes. She should be a guy and say thanks.
It is prissy. Mrs. Clinton's supporters are now complaining about the Hillary nutcrackers sold at every airport shop. Boo hoo. If Golda Meir, a woman of not only proclaimed but actual toughness, heard about Golda nutcrackers, she would have bought them by the case and given them away as party favors.
It is sissy. It is blame-gaming, whining, a way of not taking responsibility, of not seeing your flaws and addressing them. You want to say "Girl, butch up, you are playing in the leagues, they get bruised in the leagues, they break each other's bones, they like to hit you low and hear the crack, it's like that for the boys and for the girls."
And because the charge of sexism is all of the above, it is, ultimately, undermining of the position of women. Or rather it would be if its source were not someone broadly understood by friend and foe alike to be willing to say anything to gain advantage.
