Re: “Pale, male and stale

This article is all about "Identity Politics"--the belief that to be effective, a candidate must be a member of a specific group.

Since when does being qualified and capable have anything to do with gender, age or race? Those people who think that there is something wrong with a candidate because they are white, 60+ and male are the very same intolerant bigots that they so piously decry. But . . . they get to feel good about themselves by claiming to be "progressive". Funny!

Is it too much work to do your homework and vote for a candidate based on their qualifications and record? I guess it's so much easier to just fall back on stereotypes and identity politics--and you get to be seen as progressive, too!
