Hilary did a creditable job last night, don't you think? It must have been terrifically hard for her. I still harbor a visceral dislike for her, though, and I'm still sorting out how much of it is due to male prejudices. I mean, whenever I heard some blockhead cable commentator say things like Hilary reminds him of a hectoring mother-in-law, my first response would always be, "ooh, he's right" and after an unconscionable gap I would realize why that's not a fair response. Whenever we accuse a woman in public life of being shrill, we're really saying, "why doesn't she act like a man?" It's going to take a while to overcome that, I think. In the meantime, there's plenty of Clintonian ugliness that can be legitimately pinned on her. So even if I became a better person, I still wouldn't like her. So it's really not worth trying to become a better person. That's my position. And those pantsuits! Why does she insist on wearing those godawful pantsuits?! See there's another example: how often do we have anything at all to say about a male candidate's wardrobe? There was Al Gore's focus-grouped earth tones, but that was more about manipulation than about how he looked. The sad truth is that men are just more primitive than women, and you can't just select a trait you don't like and scrub it out of them. It's all part of the whole package. And all we can do is feel guilty and loathsome or else turn around and celebrate our boorishness. Seen any Judd Apatow movies lately? Okay, enough. Where are those damn meds?
