Why Men Can’t Vote for a Woman

Howard Stern says every time he thinks about voting for Hillary Clinton he has to talk himself down. He has to remind himself that the only difference between him and her is that he has a penis and she has a vagina. And then he’s OK with voting for a woman.

Where does this angst come from?

Mostly mother hatred, Stern says.

Men usually go one of two ways. They feel burdened by their overbearing mother who demanded mind reading and constant hyper-vigilance. Or they’re angry at their mothers who ignored them. “So they want to bash some woman’s head in,” Stern says.

Nah, I don’t hate women, I hate THIS woman, most guys say.

That, to me, reads much like the woman “made me do it” school of domestic abuse.

It’s the anger at Hillary that really is unjustified and troubling.

It’s the assumption that she’s faulted, somehow a lying “bitch,” some might say, that is troubling.

If you hate this woman, this most symbolic of women in our public life, you have to stop and and do this genital check.

Then really look at the situation.

If you disagree with Hillary because you’re angry her husband supported NAFTA, fine.

If you really believe that the road to total health coverage is by giving up the idea of everyone being covered, fine. If you hate the idea of everyone having health care, fine.

If you opposed her vote on Iraq, fine. Just don’t compare views on Iraq with the Obama of 2002 only. Also compare them from 2004 on when he and Hillary voted identically.

What I mean is: you can be opposed to Hillary politically. Fine.

But if you’re angry, you might want to ask yourself whom you are really angry at.

I Smell Sexism

My big take on this election is there is rampant unnatural hate of Hillary Clinton that can only explained by Sexism.

Why else is she not getting credit for her extremely important effort to keep President Bush from violating the Constitution and unilaterally signing a treaty for permanent bases in Iraq?
