So now Laura Bush is warning Democrats to be careful about attacking Sarah Palin because she’s a woman.
Coupled with indirect warnings not to criticize McCain because he was a POW, Dems are left without recourse when it comes to attacking the Codger and the Cutie.
That is, of course, if they pay attention to these warnings.
To my mind, it will really be a sign of the progress of women in politics when they can be treated with the scorn and derision that men are. When women stops asking for special privileges, they’ll likely find that there is no glass ceiling. There is just a bar of fairness to leap over.
McCain, the POW, is just going to have to take his lumps.
P.S. Hillary lost because she voted for Iraq. Not because she was a woman. If she had the guts to do the right thing then, she’d be the nominee. It really is as simple as that.
