I think the piece is a great description of all the misogynistic bullshit that Clinton has had to deal with during the primary, all of which has gone undenounced by the media and, more disappointingly, by the Democratic Party:
Most of all, I will not miss the silence.However, I am in agreement with Lambert: the premise of the piece is somewhat wrong. You can't miss misogyny if it won't go away, and it won't go away just because Hillary Clinton drops out. It's always been there, it's always been acceptable. And it's crucial that we acknowledge that, if we have any hope of making it actually go away.
I will not miss the deafening, depressing silence of Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean or other leading Democrats, who to my knowledge (with the exception of Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland) haven’t publicly uttered a word of outrage at the unrelenting, sex-based hate that has been hurled at a former first lady and two-term senator from New York. Among those holding their tongues are hundreds of Democrats for whom Clinton has campaigned and raised millions of dollars. Don Imus endured more public ire from the political class when he insulted the Rutgers University women’s basketball team.
It's especially crucial that the party and the Obama campaign acknowledge that. Because if the comments to Kate's post are any indication, there are a whole lot of women who are fed up with the party's silence in the face of the onslaught of misogyny against Clinton, so fed up they're seriously considering leaving the party, or not voting, or voting for someone else -- and they're not going to get in line unless this is reckoned with instead of just swept under the rug. Again.
