One of our friends over-heard a conversation between two women in a store:
Well, they got to talking politics and eventually began to talk about Hillary Clinton. Two of the women were talking about her saying that they could never vote for her or any woman because woman are not qualified to be president!!!!! They were saying that basically a woman's place is in the home barefoot and preggers. They went on to say that being president is a stressful job and woman can't deal with that kind of stress like men can!! I was blown away.
Now I don't like Hillary Clinton mainly because I support Barack Obama. However, I very much believe that a woman can be President of the United States of America or just about any country. This is equivalent of believing and saying back in the day that black people can't and shouldn't be president.
I'm just as sick of the Don Imus controversy as anyone but I heard something interesting on the Randi Rhodes show yesterday. She was bringing up the idea that maybe Imus is being scapegoated. Of course I was outraged over his comments and I think he should be fired but should Rush Limbaugh who says such things nearly everyday. Or Ann Coulter for crying out loud!! The list goes on and on amongst the conservative commentators: Michael Savage, Sean Hannity, Bill Bennett, Neil Boortz and Glen Beck.
