It's not bad enough that Brown is a "rock-ribbed fire-breathing right winger", or that he (gawd forbid) drives a truck. Worse, far worse, is that he's a man. That's right. And in the words of HuffPo blogger Amy Siskind:
After all, do we really need another male senator? Our country is 51% women, yet only 17% of our senators are women? Has this imbalance been working for our country? Or have we created one big fraternity that is leading our financial system and our country generally down a dangerous path?
I guess they've finally played the race card to death (we can wish, right?) and now they're moving on to the gender card.
I'll be keeping an eye on Ms. Siskind's writing on HuffPo leading up to the 2010 elections... I'm very curious to see if she'd be willing to support conservative female candidates over a liberal males. After all, we don't really need another male senator, do we?
Don't give up HOPE! Yes we can (CHANGE it back)!
