hillary clinton benghazi

Supriya Dwivedi wrote an interesting column titled, "Why Hillary Clinton Can't Act Like a Man." In it she complained of the prejudicial treatment women endure at the hands of a sexist media. This is all of course at least partially true, but in an attempt to be different, let's consider: Why a Man Can't Act Like Hillary Clinton. Double standards swing both ways.
I'm not sure why I'm still surprised when the media quite predictably portrays women in a different light than they do men. After yesterday's testimony on Benghazi the New York Post decided it should run a cover with a picture of Hillary and the headline "No Wonder Bill's Afraid." This cover would never run with a man in the place of Mrs. Clinton, and therein lays the fatal flaw of our society.
