Funny how these people never objected to sexist remarks about Sarah Palin

NY Times:
Donations flowed in for Senator Claire McCaskill after Todd Akin compared her to a dog playing “fetch” in Washington.

Donations flowed in for Senator Claire McCaskill after Todd Akin compared her to a dog playing “fetch” in Washington.
With a record number of women in Congress and dozens more on the ballot, attacks on figures like Wendy Davis, Claire McCaskill and Hillary Rodham Clinton can instantly generate contributions.
The party of perpetual outrage knows how to gen up an excuse to raise money over perceived criticism of the policies of its women candidates, but has no trouble with similar remarks aimed at conservative women.  That double standard suggest it is opportunism and an attempt to silence criticism at work.   The left just can't seem to handle it.

In the case of Wendy Davis, she has turned out to be a poor candidate who claims to be both "pro life" and for abortion on demand.  She seems to be both for and against gun control.  The bottom line is that she is a liberal trying to win in a conservative state and it is not a good fit.

Claire McCaskill benefited from Harry Reid and the Democrats conspiring and plotting to get a weak candidate nominated against her.  As for Hillary, she was not very effective as a Secretary of State and her handling of the situation in Libya is enough of a reason to oppose her regardless of gender.
