One lovely thing that has come out of all the election crap — I’ve pruned a lot of dead wood out of my blog roll. Several supposedly progressive blogs just couldn’t keep their sexist assholishness hidden over the last six months with a female candidate in the race, and have gotten the heave ho – the latest being Wil Wheaton. Sorry, Wil, but you don’t get to tell me what’s a strawman argument.
It’s a shame all these jackhole guys are tarnishing their chosen candidate with their behavior. I was going to be happy to vote for Obama, but now all I can think about is guys comparing Clinton to Fatal Attraction. I don’t think they understand who the villain in that movie actually was, and who was the victim.
But it’s nice – much more time to read books instead.
