Nevada Republican Senate Candidate Sharron Angle:
"...dirty tricks Harry [Reid] is up to his dirty tricks one more time and he's just trying to hit the girl," Angle said on the Alan Stock Show.
It's the same bullshit we've seen in regards to Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann. Any time they're criticized, one of their supporters is bound to come out with some faux-feminist claptrap like "Sexist! You're just afraid of a successful and powerful conservative woman!"
UPDATE: As someone reminded me, the die hard Hillary Clintonites (aka PUMAs) did the same thing. And they were idiots, too.
You can't have it both ways. You can't claim to be a feminist and then try to use your gender as a shield from criticism of your actual record.
And isn't calling a woman a "girl" supposed to be a no-no? Guess IOKIYAR!
