Today, Bill Richardson joined the parade of mostly white, male politicians endorsing Barack Obama. I find it interesting that the guy who benefited so much from the Clinton administration, decided to endorse Barack Obama, instead of Hillary Clinton. Why? Because the boys club of Washington does NOT want a woman in the White House. They think it’s good enough that we have Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House, 3rd in line from the Presidency. The good news is that we’re only a heart attack and an assassination* away from having a woman president. The bad news is that this scenario is highly unlikely.
The boys are scared of estrogen. They are scared that one day our nation is going to wake up and realize that a woman can do the job of the president better. And this scares the white, male, political establishment. So the boys of Washington have put on a united front. It started with Ted Kennedy, then Chris Dodd and John Kerry and now Richardson. What do all of these men have in common? All of them really, really wanted to become president, but they’ve all been defeated. And their egos are standing on the way of endorsing a woman for a job they so desperately wanted. They can’t stand the thought of losing to woman. So the boys have come together and put all their weight towards the younger, inexperienced, male candidate.
Here’s hoping that John Edwards is man enough to endorse Hillary Clinton. Real men aren’t scared of a woman on top.

These two have already done so much evil, karma is going to get them eventually… and tenfold. No wonder Bush is boozing again. He’s probably trying to forget all his eeevildoings.
