Let's Talk About Sex(ism)

Hillary Clinton did it. Talked about sexism, that is. On Sunday, the same day the Chicago Tribune's Julia Keller raged over the misogyny directed at Clinton during the campaign, the candidate herself sat down for an interview with the Washington Post's Lois Romano and had this to say: "It's been deeply offensive to millions of women...The manifestation of some of the sexism that has gone on in this campaign is somehow more respectable, or at least more accepted, and... there should be equal rejection of the sexism and the racism when it raises its ugly head. It does seem as though the press at least is not as bothered by the incredible vitriol that has been engendered by the comments by people who are nothing but misogynists." One question: when Clinton tells Romano that she doesn't think "this campaign" (Romano's words) has been racist, does she mean her own campaign or the 2008 political race as a whole? Because either way, some would beg to differ. [Washington Post]
