Feminist Follies

God Bless NPR for finding a segment of the Democrats who are just as put out by Tuesday's results as the Conservative Republicans! And that segment would be... Feminists! At least those feminists for whom the symbolic value of a woman as President is so great that it trumps all other values. They feel betrayed by Obama and those who support him. They talk as if anyone, well any man, who opposes Hillary for the Democratic nomination is somehow anti-feminist.

Oh, come now. Her being a woman is just about the only thing about Hillary Clinton that I like. I'm a feminist, but not so much so that any woman will do. Her husband, Bill Clinton, is that kind of feminist.
