Sexism Is Alive And Well!!

Anyone who said sexism was dead was clearly a liar. At a campaign rally, Hillary Clinton was "treated" to it.

Protesters Ask Clinton to Iron Shirts

SALEM, N.H. (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign stop was interrupted Monday when two men stood in the crowd and began screaming, ``Iron my shirt!'' during one of her final appearances before the New Hampshire primary.

Clinton, a former first lady running to become the nation's first female president, laughed at the seemingly sexist protest that suggested a woman's place is doing the laundry and not running the country.

``Ah, the remnants of sexism - alive and well,'' Clinton said to applause in a school auditorium.

The two men were removed from the hall after raising a pair of signs that said, ``Iron my shirt!'' They also shouted the same slogan.

``Can we turn the lights on? It's awfully dark,'' Clinton said, cueing the lights to come and police to come forward to take the men away.

The overflow crowd burst into applause and some began shouting, ``Iron my shirt'' as the two were taken from the hall.

``As I think has been abundantly demonstrated, I am also running to break through the highest and hardest glass ceiling,'' she said.

Clinton later joked about the incident as she invited questions.

``If there's anyone left in the auditorium who wants to learn how to iron a shirt, I'll talk about that,'' she said with a smile.

Clinton placed a disappointing third place in Iowa's caucuses last week and faces a tough challenge in Tuesday's primary from Barack Obama, who leads her with just one day remaining.

Unless a "miracle" happens and every jackass like these two in this country have a forced lobotomy, there will never be a woman President of the United States.

This is the year 2008. Women can do whatever the hell they want. They can be whatever the hell they want. They don't need permission from a man. The problem with pigs like these two is that they're afraid of a powerful woman. They're afraid that she will kick their asses in more ways than one!! They don't like smart, educated, tough women because that means that they are no longer in control!! Tough shit!!
