I'm sure someone else more articulate and versed in the ways of politics in America has already written about this somewhere today, but the headline in the Washington Post finally pushed me over the edge.
So Hillary Clinton got a little emotional yesterday in New Hampshire. So what?
Does this make her any less qualified to be the leader of our nation?
And yet, when men in political power display tears, it's okay. Somehow it makes them sensitive leaders who are compassionate and real.
But when a woman cries, well, then she's just being emotional and overwrought. It makes her "flawed."
When are we going to get out of the dark ages and stop with the sexist bullshit? Honestly, some days the lack of enlightened, civilized behavior in this country just makes me sick.
P.S. In fairness to the Post, it was a decently written article. But still... Why did it even have to be written? Would anyone note if John McCain or Fred Thompson got verklempt. Doubtful.
