Clinton/Sexism

Peggy Noonan has a good column up on Clinton and her sexism complaints.

She points out other women in history who were not such sissies. She points out how insulting the charge is (similar to being called a racist for not voting for Obama). And then she points out how untrue it is.

Tough hill-country men voted for her, men so backward they’d give the lady a chair in the union hall. Tough Catholic men in the outer suburbs voted for her, men so backward they’d call a woman a lady. And all of them so naturally courteous that they’d realize, in offering the chair or addressing the lady, that they might have given offense, and awkwardly joke at themselves to take away the sting. These are great men. And Hillary got her share, more than her share, of their votes. She should be a guy and say thanks.

Amen.
