Women Are "It"

According to the Center for American Women and Politics, "Women are a majority of undecided voters in the 2008 presidential race, as they were in past elections."

Now one would think that since gender is a decisive factor in this year's presidential race (as in all others), a lassie or two might've been booked on at least one Sunday talk show before Election Day.

But as Tennessee Guerilla Women wisely observes, sadly, "[g]ender is a non story." Nothing to see behind the curtain besides a bunch of male geezers pontificating about the Bradley effect.

"There are simply not enough women in power in this cowboy country for gender to be a serious topic of discussion," she writes. Sure, "women are the majority of undecided voters. And in the battleground states, the fate of the election lies with undecided voters." But so what?

Presently, every analyst in the world has declared Obama the winner; and with the carnage of the last eight years, is anyone really surprised? But lordy, lordy, lordy, should Obama lose, can't wait for the recrimination and blame game to start; and how it's all Hillary's fault for not quitting earlier; and damn her Bible-clinging racist supporters.

Well, let it be said here and now that Howling Latina will hold her nose and vote for Obama; however, if he loses, she won't shed a single tear. By the way, she did not volunteer one single minute of her time or contribute one single penny to the Obama campaign. She's quite proud of that fact.
