It's worse than I realized...

There is a real need for someone connected with the Obama campaign to denounce the constant sexist media attacks on Hillary Clinton. I had not - I really had not - realized just how insane and constant these had been until I read the Shakespeare's Sister monitoring site here. The US media are shameless and I am upset that only the New Statesman has really acknowledged the issue on this side of the Atlantic - Andrew Stephens here. We do accept that sexism and ageism are as unacceptable as racism and homophobia, don't we? Because we need to start taking this sort of thing seriously.

I am not, I repeat not, any particular fan of either Clinton, but the sort of thing documented by Shakespeare's Sister is just completely abhorrent and unacceptable.
