Amazing What These Fools Say

Amazing What These Fools Say

I am suddenly getting emails in which liberals expose their misogyny, and don't even realize it:
Here is a bold great directional idea for your next article. Why not a personal interview with the Democratic presidential candidate and his VP? What? You are not big enough in circulation to be able to get a personal interview with Obama himself. In fact, you don’t even have a personal interview article with McCain and the dumb broad VP sidekick. You know, the picture of that dumb broad looking down the site of a rifle really does scare me. She is liable to shoot one of your kids by mistake. [emphasis added]
You know, when someone uses phrases like "dumb broad," it really says quite a bit about them, doesn't it? I wasn't quite sure what to make of the claims by Senator Clinton's backers that the Obama campaign was misogynistic, but I see emails like this, and I am more inclined to agree.

UPDATE: A reader points out that "site of a rifle" suggests that in spite of claiming to be a gun owning, church going Republican, the writer probably isn't any of those things. Back in 2004, the musician Moby encouraged other liberals like himself to misrepresent themselves in chat rooms and online forums as disgruntled Republicans.
