To white women who supposedly dumped Obama because you wanted to make history by voting for a woman:
Edited on Tue Sep-16-08 10:19 AM by EffieBlack
I call you out. You're busted.
If you really wanted to make history by voting for a woman, you had many opportunities before now, but never exercised them.
You could have voted for Carol Moseley-Braun in 2004. Did you? Of course not. Why not?
Solid middle class roots
Assistant U.S. Attorney
Member, Illinois House of Representatives (Assistant Majority Leader)
Sued her own party and won in a landmark case (you know, a "maverick")
Cook County Recorder of Deeds
U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand
and . . . she's a mother! In fact, she left her job as an Assistant U.S. Attorney to become a fulltime homemaker when her son was small.
No, you didn't vote for Carol Moseley-Braun. At all. Nor did you whine about "sexism" when she was marginalized and dismissed by the MSM in the most blatant terms. For example, I don't recall you uttering a peep when CNN reported:
"During her bid to become president, Moseley Braun had voters and political analysts asking 'Why?' 'Nobody knows exactly why she's running,' CNN political analyst William Schneider said in 2003. 'She is the only woman who's running. She could make herself a candidate who is outspoken on women's issues, but she's not. ... She's competing with (Democrat Al) Sharpton for the African-American vote and (U.S. Rep. Dennis) Kucinich for the left. She isn't raising much money. She may have nothing better to do.'" http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2004/special/president/cand
But you said nothing. You did nothing to support her. You didn't jump up and down with joy over the fact that a "mom" was running. You didn't give her a dime and you didn't give her a vote. No - you voted for the white guys in the race.
So don't be surprised if I don't buy your sudden conversion into proud feminists who want nothing more than to see a woman break that glass ceiling that Hillary cracked for you. Your support for the McCain ticket has nothing to do with gender.
It's all about race and you know it. You didn't want to vote for the black guy.
And you weren't going to vote for the black guy, no matter what you'd been telling your friends, pollsters and the media. The only thing that's changed is that McCain gave you an excuse to publicly own up to the fact that you are going to vote Republican, many of you for the first time.
Funny, you think the rest of us are too stupid to also know it, but ladies, I see right through you. You're as transparent as the glass ceiling you've never seemed to notice before but think you have every right to crawl over the rest of us to scramble through. But there are more of us than there are of you and it's not going to work - especially since you slipped up and let us peep your hold card.
