    • The Lack of Belief In Good
      Are humans good, bad or neutral? It’s an old philosophical debate, and not just in the West. Confucius thought they were born neutral, for example, while the later Confucian Mencius felt they were good, noting that everyone who saw a child fall into a well would be horrified. Others, including many Confucians and the Christian church, with original sin, have […]

They’re onto something

NOW-NY released a blistering response to Ted Kennedy’s endorsement of Barack Obama. Just go read it and after you’ve cooled your eyeballs down, come back.

The day the Equal Rights Amendment died, I was sitting at The Point in Pittsburgh at a rally with my precious 5 month old little girl on my back. I thought it was just a minor setback. Jeez, we women are so used to minor setbacks that it becomes almost routine, a part of our lives, the background noise.

But when a high profile liberal senator, member of a presidential dynasty, swoops in to plant defeat in the jaws of a woman’s victory, I get a tad PO’d. If you weren’t born female, you won’t identify with this sensation. But trust me, we know when the guys have gotten together to pow-wow without us and have decided that the prize is too high for us.

It’s too risky.

Our time will come later.

It’s much better for a totally green candidate with waaaaay less experience do the heavy lifting because he has a penis, after all and other men respect that. By golly, that outty of dynamic vascularized tissue just trumps everything, doesn’t it?

Now, many people will point to Caroline Kennedy by his side and say that it’s not a gender issue. But Caroline Kennedy’s father was president. She has a bit of a different take on this whole thing than we do and she was only 6 when he died so her childhood memory is all she has to go on. As for Ted, the possibility that he could live his brothers’ dreams vicariously through Barack is just too irresistable.

Let’s face it: Hillary is more qualified and a harder worker and she just got passed over for promotion. We’ve been here before.

No wonder NOW is on fire.

One Response

  1. We can say what ever but God has the last words. Senator Barack Obama is very qualified, no one who ever was elected in the white house had experience. If so then they need not be in the white house. Why? Because a person with experience shouldn’t be there in the first place, you have to do 4 terms first.
