Quote of the Day

We can thank reader John for passing along this gem. Phylis Schalfy on whether the country is ready for a woman president:

"'I don't see it happening because I don't see one coming up the line in either party,' she said. Democrat Hillary Clinton lost to Barack Obama because 'people don't want to elect a feminist because they are not likeable. You have to be likeable to be elected.' She paused a moment before musing that 'the best route is probably being a governer,' never mind that at this moment, 'the pickings among [women] governors are very slim.'

Ditto, apparently, among female ex-governors. 'Sarah Palin is the total package. She's got a cute husband. She's got a lot of kids.'

But is she ready to be president? 'I don't think so.'"

Because maybe she doesn't have enough children yet?

You know, when I was a kid, I always thought we'd be driving flying cars, riding hoverboards, and eating astronaut food in the year 2010. Instead, we have Phylis Schlafly, still partying like it's 1959.
