Which is funny, because Iowa is one of only two states that has never had a female in congress or the statehouse.
Bachmann is the only female candidate in the current Republican field. They used to have a black guy but he’s gone. And I must say that I’m very disappointed that the only woman is, apparently, about to be shoved to the side in the race to the top. I’m not disappointed because of the gender bias … I fully expect that from the Tea Bagging Republicans. A woman’s place is in the home, making babies and brownies, obviously. I’m disappointed becuase Michele was, indeed still is, my candidate. I so much want her to do well in this race and truly set her sights on the White House.
Don’t give up, Michele!
Here’s the story from WCCO discussing the gender thing. It talks about how Michele is a real coupon clipper and stuff.
