Crones Attempt to get in Touch With Their Inner Bitch

The NYT has a good piece on how "postfeminism" has not succeeded the bra-burning generation whose mammaries now sag.
...there was the bald outrage of Geraldine Ferraro, who complained that Barack Obama would not have come as far as he had if he were a white man or a woman of any race — comments that led her to resign from the Clinton campaign last week. Ms. Ferraro tripped right into the race minefield in her big rush to make her point about the gender minefield. But all along, many women who fought the first wave of battles for gender equality have seen a bias against Mrs. Clinton — which helps explain why older women form the core of her support.

Along with identity politics which is tearing the Democrat Party into richly-deserved shreds.

And of course, GOP men support Hillary for entirely another reason, as the Boston Globe notes:
Conservative radio giant Rush Limbaugh said on Fox News on Feb. 29 that he was urging conservatives to cross over and vote for Clinton, their bĂȘte noire nonpareil, "if they can stomach it."

"I want our party to win. I want the Democrats to lose," Limbaugh said. "They're in the midst of tearing themselves apart right now. It is fascinating to watch. And it's all going to stop if Hillary loses."

He added, "I know it's a difficult thing to do to vote for a Clinton, but it will sustain this soap opera, and it's something I think we need."

Limbaugh's exhortations seemed to work. In Ohio and Texas on March 4, Republicans comprised 9 percent of the Democratic primary electorate, more than twice the average GOP share of the turnout in the earlier contests where exit polling was conducted. Clinton ran about even with Obama among Republicans in both states, a far more favorable showing among GOP voters than in the early races.

Yep, the MSM are going to have to swallow hard [as will boorish oaf semi-pinhead B O'R who is jealous of Rush's pre-eminence and continues to prate that RL had nothing to do with Hillary's victory in Texas] and admit that "radio giant RL" is keeping them in the tizzy they so richly deserve [and hysteria among them is so high that their paranoid elites in the MSM are surely concocting some remedy].

As sexually ambiguous Anderson Cooper notes: "This Obama problem is making us veer off-topic."

Or Newsweek sperm germ Evan Thomas noted of the Durham lacrosse scandal: "The narrative was perfect. Only the facts ended up not quite to fit...[or words to that effect.]
