I wasn't going to write about the elections, I was going to write about my landlord popping by unannounced and falling down my stairs.
I've been following all that's happening with interest, of course, but in a typical 'Sam' fashion, since I'd already decided who I would vote for even Before he announced he was officially running for president, I haven't been reading all the nonsense about Hilary VS Obama. Until I noticed an article in the Washington Post , and then read the rebuttal over at the Guardian US.
In a nutshell, the Washington Post article claims women are not as bright as men in general, and the Gardian makes mention of the fact that any (Democrat) woman who voted for Obama instead of Hilary was not a feminist.
According to some people, if I'm a woman, I'm expected to vote for a woman to show my 'support' for women.
Well, sorry. I'm a woman and I will show my support to the candidate I believe can do the better job. I will vote for whomever I want to vote for. That is called being a liberated woman. And I don't buy the Washington Post's article about women being less intelligent than men. I find about the same amount of smart and stupid people in both sexes. I think that the woman who wrote the article was just being provacative, but she has placed herself firmly in my 'stupid' list.
And my landlord is fine. But her butt is sore. And I have a hard time feeling sorry for someone who drops by without calling. I did give her some tea and arnica, and listened to her for two hours while she moaned about everything. I think I'll need a vacation after this vacation.
