Ace politicial reporting

shorter version.

Is it sexist to comment on Hillary's clothes?: Yes, but not as sexist as it is to call a display of emotion proof of either disqualifying weakness or manipulative bitchiness.

Bush, then Clinton. Rinse. Repeat.: The burden of Bush's legacy will surely doom Hillary in the end. Also, people don't remember the most prosperous period in America of the last 30 years or so fondly, at all. Not like they remember lying about blowjobs and other manufactured scandals.

Drug war:

I just got an email from a friend who seems to think that asking Obama whether he thinks he should have done a long stretch in the pokey for using drugs is a sly way of attacking Obama.
This is very unfair of Megan's friend. The proper question to ask remains why it has to be the black guy you ask about drugs.
