Let me tell you.

If I had been up on that stage, I would have gone off on this muckraker masquerading as a "journalist":

If you can't access the video, here is what Ms. Such and Such from Politico, whose name and title I won't bother to write inside this post, said to Hillary Clinton at the Democratic debate in California last night:

"Senator Clinton, your husband has set off several firestorms in the last few weeks in early primary states with the way that he has criticized Senator Obama.

Greg Craig, who was one of your husband's top lawyers, and is now a senior adviser to Senator Obama, recently asked if your campaign can't control the former president now, what will it be like when you're in the White House?"

If you peruse the transcript of the debate, you'll notice that there was no follow up question to Senator Obama asking him how he keeps his wife in line. In fact, there haven't been any such nasty questions posed about any of the other candidates' spouses in either party.

Hmph. This is not cool.

And, to make me even more upset about the state of crazy women talking about other women today, I read this post last night on Catherine's blog and this post tonight on Feministing. You know I had to leave comments on both. You have to scroll down really far for the latter one.

That's all.

Wow. That's awful. Of course, we've been subtly reminded of Clinton's gender all throughout the race, even in the subtle and consistent use of her first name while the male candidates are almost always called by their last names. I realize it's confusing because of the former President Clinton, but you'd think that in the 21st century we'd be a little less sexist than that!

Welcome, booklady! I would think so too.
