Ever since she’s stumbled at the last debate, there has been a spinning directive by the Clinton campaign and her supporters – that they were picking on her because she was a woman.

Can you imagine Margaret Thatcher or Golda Meir or Benazir Bhutto whining about being picked on because they were a woman?

Of course not.

The latest hustler in this spin has been Geraldine Ferraro, who said in a NYTimes piece:

“John Edwards, specifically, as well as the press, would never attack Barack Obama for two hours they way they attacked her,” said Geraldine A. Ferraro, the 1984 vice presidential candidate who supports Mrs. Clinton. “It’s O.K. in this country to be sexist,” Ms. Ferraro said.

“It’s certainly not O.K. to be racist. I think if Barack Obama had been attacked for two hours — well, I don’t think Barack Obama would have been attacked for two hours.”

Um, did I imagine it when they all went after Barack Obama in Iowa that time in a debate? I guess it just didn’t happen. Sorry, Mrs. Ferraro, but IT DID HAPPEN to Barack Obama. But, I don’t recall Obama’s supporters going out saying that they were picking on him just cause he was Black. And, what do you think would have happened IF his supporters had said that he was being picked on because he was Black – it would be portrayed at a betrayal of American Ideals, blah blah blah.

For my ‘Sisters’ who still labor under the delusion that Hillary is a ‘Sister’, please note this. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Black women are only “SISTERS”, when it’s convenient for White women. If it’s not, then you know where you are shoved.

If you want to be ‘LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD’, then you go forth and take the punches. She was attacked last week, because she tried to give lame ass/have it both ways answers to hot button questions and straddle fences, when she wasn’t outright lying. And folks FINALLY began to call her on it.
