After eight years of Bush, Cheney, Delay, Rumsfeld, Kristol, Coulter, Hewitt, etc.; it’s good to get an occasional reminder of why everybody hates liberals. Nora Ephron, in a Huffington Post so cliched that it reads like a parody of academic/Hollywood/limousine liberalism opines thusly:
But now there are two and we’re facing Pennsylvania and whom are we kidding? This is an election about whether the people of Pennsylvania hate blacks more than they hate women. And when I say people, I don’t mean people, I mean white men. How ironic is this? After all this time, after all these stupid articles about how powerless white men are and how they can’t even get into college because of overachieving women and affirmative action and mean lady teachers who expected them to sit still in the third grade even though they were all suffering from terminal attention deficit disorder — after all this, they turn out (surprise!) to have all the power. (As they always did, by the way; I hope you didn’t believe any of those articles.)
Thanks for the explanation. I have been so caught up in cross burnings and meetings of the White Male Power Structure that I forgot to focus on the real issue–am I more racist than sexist? Or vice versa?
