I'll admit it, I have very little patience for women in politics -- especially the sort of woman who wants to have her cake and eat it too in the sexist name-calling game. First, we weren't supposed to vote for Ken Buck because he made a crack about not wearing high heels. Then we are supposed to vote for Jane Norton because she's a conservative? Because she's pro-life? No, because she's a woman.
That's a bit like the sexist pot calling the reverse sexist kettle black, isn't it?
So, it is with a little bit of snickering that I heard the news tonight that, despite all the support she got from the Susan B. Anthony list and the heavy-handed use of Buck's crack about high heels, Jane Norton lost to Ken Buck in the Colorado Republican Senate primary.
