Attorney-general nominee Jeff Sessions took lots of hits for an incident of his supposed illiberal past, based on an alleged racialist remark three decades ago. But again, does anyone really believe that the Left is serious about the gravity of supposedly intemperate remarks? After all, Sessions had never suggested, as Vice President Joe Biden did, that Barack Obama was “the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” Nor did he say, as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid did, that Obama was a “light-skinned” African American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” Nor did he say of abortion, as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg did: “Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.” And unlike Eric Holder, Sessions had neither referred to a racial group as “my people” nor written off Americans as “a nation of cowards” for their failure to speak in ways he preferred on race. What does the liberal media make of these disconnects? The liberal media were never much interested in proper speech other than as a political mechanism for damning political opponents while exempting themselves.

If only we had better understood the perils of "identity politics" before women got the vote. That's what really doomed this country.

They screwed up, big time, becasue they assumed women would always vote the same as their owner ( husband) thus giving property owners more political influence. Boy, were they ever wrong.

It's simply a case of filling up the gas tank to level the playing field.
Libbies, however, keep the pump on till the tank overflows and the car explodes...
