Quote of the Day

"Lincoln-Douglas made it famous—a debate with no moderator—but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen between Obama and Clinton. … She says that she will debate him any place at any time, adding that it could even be done on the back of a flat-bed truck. He would probably prefer to run over her with a flat-bed truck at this point."—CNN's Jack Cafferty, coming in at #85 on the Hillary Sexism Watch with yet another allusion to Hillary's candidacy being swiftly ended with her murder.

Because, ya know, violence against women is completely hilarious and totally isn't a massive problem, which is why the Department of Justice has dedicated an entire office to it. Just to laugh and talk about how not a problem it is.

(If you're considering arguing this isn't an example of sexism, let me direct you here. If you're considering accusing me of thinking any criticism of Clinton is sexist, let me direct you here. If you're considering arguing that Cafferty's intent was not to be sexist, let me direct you here. And if you're considering accusing me of being in the bag for Hillary, let me direct you to a big bag of STFU.)
