I find it particularly annoying that while we can't criticize Obama without someone screaming "Racist!", Hillary is either an Unwomanly ball-breaking bitch who isn't fit to run the country or a woman, who is obviously, by virtue of her gender, too weak to run the country. While the political cartoonists only give Obama big ears, they nearly all show Hillary as a wizened, mean crone, or as a drill sergeant, or as a Gentile version of a Jewish Mother. She can't win [even when she does].

This photo was taken while visiting my Aunt Jenny in New York, on the day Israel's Independence was declared. I have some vague memories of all the adults--my Aunt Jenny and Uncle Harry, and my parents, laughing and crying while listening to the radio in the "front room" of the fifth floor, walk-up tenement flat on Avenue B and 4th Street. Next month, Jenny and Harry's granddaughter--a woman only 4 years younger than myself, her husband, and their two grown children (Jenny's great-grandson is the same age as my son) and son-in-law will visit Israel for the first time.

Could this be why Hillary's having trouble corralling the votes? Obama talks airy-fairy stuff about "change" and we are called "racists" for pointing out that he's got no experience whatsoever, but Hillary is compared to a (oy gevalt!) Yiddishe Mama? (And a Yiddishe Mama's supposed to be a Bad Thing, you know.
