To be a woman, with a vote.

From the comments at Shakesville: Her voice was careful and quiet (she was clearly holding herself together so hard for the cameras, the weight of it all very heavy on her) and even with the tears, it still felt fitting, because this–this wondering and thinking and finally deciding on your own vote–this is what the

Hating Hillary

Andrew Stephen in the New Statesman: Gloating, unshackled sexism of the ugliest kind has been shamelessly peddled by the US media, which – sooner rather than later, I fear – will have to account for their sins History, I suspect, will look back on the past six months as an example of America going through

WTF? ABC News is full of shit

via Shakeville – this lovely gem appeared on ABC news yesterday. What the hell is this about? Do they actually think that WE think this is news?
