“I think Obama was terribly sexist.” – Geraldine Ferraro, prominent Hillary Clinton supporter.
Help me out here. What has Barack Obama done that is “terribly sexist”?
I’m not talking about some Barack Obama supporter somewhere. I’m talking about Barack Obama, because Geraldine Ferraro is talking about Barack Obama. Geraldine Ferraro just called Barack Obama — not one of his supporters, but Obama himself — “terribly sexist.” I’m sure Hillary Clinton has faced a great deal of sexism, but I’m at a loss to identify any of it coming from Barack Obama.
So tell me. Tell me what Barack Obama has done in the campaign that “was terribly sexist.” You’ll have to tell me, because for the life of me I can’t think of a thing.
What, is it sexist of Barack Obama to have not gotten out of the way of the Clinton campaign and let her win? Should he have treated her with kid gloves? Should he have deferred to her gender status? Is that it? If not, what? Help me out here. Show me the light.
