I'm actually quite sick to death of the constant pointing to the fact that Sen. Clinton has a vagina and it's "about time we had a female president" and the references to Obama's ethnicity -- for the same reasons you mention about the Tiger Woods episode.

People don't hate the Senators because of gender or ethnicity - that's not an issue. I have no doubt that we'd elect a female or black president without thinking twice... if they were qualified. But I absolutely HATE the insinuation that because I would not vote for either of them I'm either a misogynist or a racist. I am neither. It's the POLITICS, stupid.

There is obviously no free speech in this country any more. The 'lynch' remark had about as much to do with race as it did peanut butter: nada.

These people astound me.
