Columnwhoring: Shut Up, Tweety


Women supporting Clinton may, for example, have been drawn to her plan to ban cabinet officials from lobbying her administration or her desire to cut 500,000 government contractors from the federal payroll.

Black and white voters supporting Obama, instead of making a statement about race, might have been casting their votes for the man who called the Iraq war “dumb” and “rash” long before it was popular to say such things and who wants to bring our troops home from the Middle East sooner, not later.

Pundits like Garfield and Matthews could have seized on these positions or any handful of others on everything from Iranian weapons to Idaho farming to make the case for Obama and Hillary supporters.

Instead, they used the candidacies of both to advocate that we are trivial creatures, capable of voting only on the superficial grounds of someone’s race or gender.
