On Good Morning America today, Christine O'Donnell said she hated her "I'm not a witch" ad, and that the experience taught her to trust her gut, the way a good Tea Partier should. However, she also said she got a lot of unfair criticism as a conservative female candidate.
O'Donnell claims that Hillary Clinton came in from a sexism and right-wing women, which is debatable — remember "iron my shirt"? It is worth remembering that conservative female candidates deserve a fair shake, just as liberal ones do, and feminists should defend both from misogynist bullshit. But that doesn't mean we can't take issue with their politics — and with this year's candidates, there's a lot to criticize.
