It’s unusual to hear a politician ridicule about half her constituents on national television, but certain topics simply supersede politics. For Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), that issue is apparently mansplaining. Or maybe just men talking? As one of 20 women in the Senate, she wants more women to run for office, she said for Monday’s Late Show, “but equally important is encouraging more men to sometimes just shut the hell up.” She quickly clarified, sort of, telling the world’s men: “It’s not that women don’t value your thoughts, it’s just that we don’t value all of them.”
What topics should men just shut up about? Don’t worry: McCaskill had a list. … [read it all]
It’s easy to see why Stephen Colbert would air this rather stupid piece of (what should be) political suicide by McCaskill; he hasn’t been funny in 10 years.
But I’m also wondering how a moron like Claire McCaskill gets elected in the first place? Well, the argument can be made that the GOP is just too fence-post stupid to field a candidate the two divergent factions of their party can agree on.
I suppose it can also be argued that this weird video was just a dumb joke that someone at The Late Show persuaded McCaskill to go along with, although it is fairly consistent with other statements she has made in the past.
Anyway, if liberal women really want to be taken seriously, as McCaskill suggests, one has to ask why so many of them are casting themselves as sexual objects to achieve their goals? I mean this is not an endemic problem within conservative women’s circles.
So it would seem that men’s opinions are very important to liberal women. That is, other than the wimp McCaskill persuaded to marry her.
Not that I really care a lot about what goes on in Missouri politics, or even sexism as defined by our moral, ethical, and intellectual superiors in the Democrat Party, for that matter.
But I do find it a little bizarre that Claire McCaskill doesn’t want anything from men… other than their votes.
And that so many of you guys voted for her.
