Clinton's XX Chromosome Voter Mandate

Nate Jackson · Feb. 8, 2016

Hillary Clinton is a female. This just in, we know. But it appears she thinks flaunting her status as a victim of the war on women might be her golden ticket to the Democrat nomination. During last Thursday’s Democrat debate, Clinton said, “Senator Sanders is the only person who I think would characterize me — a woman running to be the first woman president — as exemplifying the establishment.” She can’t be establishment; she’s a woman. Never mind her two and a half decades in Washington.

And she’s working that line of attack on Sanders, even deploying Bill Clinton to defend her womanhood. Bill spoke of a Hillary-supporting blogger who writes pseudonymously because she has been “subject to vicious trolling and attacks that are literally too profane often, not to mention sexist, to repeat.” Welcome to the Internet. And yes, Bill Clinton, who has been credibly accused of rape, is worried about someone being sexist.

Meanwhile, feminist icon Gloria Steinem mused, “When you’re young, you’re thinking: ‘Where are the boys?’ The boys are with Bernie.” Isn’t that, well, sexist?

On top of that, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright declared, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!” The implication, we suppose, is that people with two X chromosomes must vote for Hillary Clinton, or risk hellfire and damnation. When asked about that on Sunday morning TV, Hillary immediately began her grating and awkward laughter.

In any case, Clinton’s record speaks for itself, and even were she a man, she’d be unfit for command.
