Nuggets of Wisdom

Forget the national debt and deficit. Forget unemployment. Forget perpetual war. And forget the constant infringements on our Constitutional rights. The real threat to America comes from women in politics.

Or so claims sexist prick Jesse Lee Peterson of The Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny (BOND).

Women can’t handle power? Ever heard of Cleopatra? Queen Elizabeth? Catherine the Great? Queen Victoria? Margaret Thatcher? This guy needs to drop his Bible and pick up a history book. The Bible isn’t sexist, but it’s too often used by sexists to justify their sexism.

I would refute his claim that women don’t make for good politicians, but considering the current crop of female politicians in America—Palin, Bachmann, Clinton, Pelosi, Shultz—that would be a difficult claim to refute. (Not saying that women can’t be good politicians, just that there aren’t any good female politicians as of now!)

Seriously though, sexist pricks like this guy need to be banished to the moon by the good Princess Celestia. (Wait! On second thought, that punishment would be too good for them. They need to be banished to the sun by Princess Luna!) How's that for poetic justice?
