Sour grapes from the gals

Obama man be the (Democrats') man, but that doesn't necessarily mean he was the beneficiary of sexism. That's my main point in this week's Face to Face debate in the Tri-City News. On the other hand, the woman with whom I debate, Mary Woo Sims, smells the malodorous scent of sexism in Clinton's defeat. Then again, she'd probably be railing against racism if Obama had lost.

Whatever the reasons people chose one over the other is entirely their business, whether sexist or not. If Mary Woo Sims is that concerned about it, I trust she will endorse McCain, since the Democrats are sexist.

"Then again, she'd probably be railing against racism if Obama had lost."

I would like to suggest that we start collecting names of statements of those allegedly sexism. Then in November, we can cross reference their names with those who alleged racism should Obama lose.

It's fun to watch the identity politics crowd contort themselves into ever greater cognitive dissonance.

>"How many of us, including the media, used the familiar “Hillary” when referring to Sen. Clinton while Sen. Obama was always referred to by his surname?
What’s that all about?"

It's about how she was referred to for 8 years while her husband was POTUS, at her own insistence I might add, and in addition to her husband being referred to as "Bill" rather than William.

And speaking of sexism, maybe Sims could give us a better understanding of the word sexism by referring to the column she wrote about President B.J. Clinton's sexual predations in regard to Monica Lewinksky, Gennifer Flowers, Sally Perdue, Connie Hamsky, Paula Corbin Jones, and Kathleen Willey.

Oh, she didn't write a column about that?
Well colour me shocked!
