  •  no , it's sexist (0+ / 0-)

    to continually attack Hillary in the manner Kos does, with the boys piling on in their pie-ish way.  

    Do you seriously imagine Hillary DOESNT want to bring the troops home?

    Do you think she's going to vote with the Republicans on the various end-the-war resolutions?

    You think she's like Cheney? (as Kos evidently does?)

    Is there ANY other Democrat that Kos has likened to Cheney?

    The intense dislike for her in Kossackistan is so extreme.. it's so obviously NOT about positions or politics, but about something else.

    •  Stop with the charges of sexism (7+ / 0-)

      You're not the first one to raise this--Francis L. Holland made a fine art of it--and you certainly won't be the last. But I've heard quite enough of the "if you criticize her, you're sexist" argument. Bunk. Baloney. Buffalo chips.

      There is a laundry list of reasons why putting Hillary Rodham Clinton at the head of the Democratic ticket would be a disaster to the party. Her gender isn't one of them.

      What I'm catching here is a whiff of lèse majesté: some people think it's against the rules to criticize the Clintons because they're the royal family of the Democratic Party. Sorry, no. They're subject to the same criticism on the merits as everyone else in the field.

      •  HRC is criticized more sharply here (0+ / 0-)

        than any other democrat (excluding the ex-dem Lieberman). Much of this criticism is irrational, and sometimes this criticism is sexist in nature. More often, however, it seems to be about rebelling against perceived authority, IMHO.

    •  So am I sexist too? (1+ / 0-)

      No one on this site despises Hillary Clinton as much as I do.  I have made no bones about the fact that I will stay home next November if Hillary is the nominee.

      It's definitely not about sexism.

      I support THEY WORK FOR US: ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: I BOYCOTT the New York Times and the Washington Post.
