Quote of the Day, Jr.

"Every time a male politician acts like a rooster there's a spate of commentary celebrating the moral superiority of women. The New York Times reacted to Weiner's humiliation with a classic of the genre, opining that 'busy working women don't have time to cheat,' and quoting a feminist professor saying, 'women run for office to do something, and men run for office to be somebody.' Look, ladies, it's a zero sum game. Takes two, you know."

-- Gene Lyons in a Salon piece called "Anthony Weiner's Willing Partners"

As with the quote from "Thinker Mom" Vicki Larson a couple of days ago, this one is offered without commentary, the interjection of relevant recent personal experience, or any other statement that might contain an often derogatory word that describes a female dog. Only this time that derogatory word would be directed at someone besides the author of the article, if you get my drift.

Women run for office to do something while men run for office to be somebody? That's definitely something a female dog would say. Furthermore, a lot of these so-called feminists would be better described as female supremacists.

Yeah, yeah, yeah... women are better than men.

I always love the argument that 'when you put a woman in power, they don't start wars', which is something I think Margaret Thatcher, Indira Gandhi and Golda Meir would find interesting.

Face it ladies, you can be just as idiotic as men. Let's start with Lisa "Diaper Astronaut" Nowak and I'll match your idiocy for ours.

There are plenty of women who run for office to be somebody. How else do you explain Palin?

A note from management: I'm not printing your comment, Tracer. Do me a favor and don't lecture me on what I say or how I say it. There are certain subjects I have to handle in a very specific way and only I get to decide what that way is.

It's your world, killer.

Chez said...

Yeah, right. I say that to myself every day.
