Y'know that old saying about how history happens the first time as tragedy and the second time as farce? Well, what happens if it happens as farce the first time? You know, like when Obama was first running, and all the Liberals were screaming about how if you didn't support him you were some kind of racist, even though anybody who did even the most cursory examination of his background would've told you that the guy was a total sham, a lightweight who pretty much skated into every office he held, a classic Clinton Democrat, a flunkie of the Pentagon and Wall Street?
So, here comes Hillary Clinton, taking another stab at it now that Obama's warmed the seat up for her, and I can just see it now, the same old shit -- if I don't support Hillary, I'm a mean old sexist Teabagger, even though anybody who hasn't been living in a goddamn' cave for the past twenty years totally knows the score on this nasty old harpie. Anyone who points out her involvement on the board of Wal-Mart, her support for Israeli atrocities in Palestine, her support for the disaster in Iraq, or her support for corporate dictatorship is going to get a bunch of shrieking from geezing old '70s dead-enders who can't talk about anything but Roe V. Wade and the Glass Ceiling™.
So, folks, would it be safe to assume that American Feminism is pretty much dead? I mean, c'mon -- Glass Ceiling? "Lean In"? Roe V. Wade? Is that all you tired old broads have got for us?
But, more importantly -- who's going to hold Hillary's crown while she takes the oath of office?
