A Bitter Little Pill

As evidenced by his latest screed against Hillary Clinton, Charles Krauthammer is a bitter little pill of a man.

He excoriates her for being a careful and calculating schemer who tailors her message and issues as the the world turns. I guess he prefers the blundering and blustering approach of his hero President Bush, but under all of it is the distinct odor of misogynism; these qualities would be admirable in a man, but since she’s a she, she’s not to be trusted:

Clinton rarely falters. Always careful, always calibrated, always leaving room for expediency over ideology….Gender sensitivity prevents me from calling her the consummate needle-threader.

But he does it anyway, and what he really means is “that’s a bi— woman for you.”
