  •  I just get so irritated by this crap (4+ / 0-)

    I haven't read very much stuff talking about her race and sex from progressives- other than, of course, in response to insults about her race and sex from conservatives.

    It's really the conservatives who are so hyper focused on race in this country.  To them, everything is racially linked.  I think that's probably the case because many of them don't actually become involved in any community that cuts across racial and sex lines.  

    The other aspect about conservatives that cause them to be unable to see straight here is that they have no concept of the idea that not everyone gets to start from the same starting point.  Their own experience is what they rely on when determining whether or not someone else should be successful.  They believe that everyone starts the race from the same spot.  

    The lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging and kicking them into obedience.

      her achievements would STILL be impressive.  I mean, it's not like Chimpy was ever valedictorian or summa cum laude or law review editor.

        I wouldn't dare knock her successes, she is definitely a rare individual.
