This white man is plenty ready for women to take over [View all]

Thanks to unhappycamper, I just watched Rep. Duckworth rip a new portal into one of the folks that make America the flaming suckfest that it's become. Such wonderful, controlled, righteous indignation. Ms. Duckworth wants to do the right thing, and she's calling it like it is.

In Texas, another difficult woman, Democratic Senator Wendy Davis, fought to stop lunatics from... being lunatics.

For several years, I've watched Elizabeth Warren do the same - dismantling Republicans, bankers, Obama's new US Trade Representative, and the other parasites that are sucking the last bits of juice from the 99%.

In my adopted state of Massachusetts, it was yet another difficult woman, Margaret Marshall, who led the court decision 10 years ago that first allowed gay Americans to marry. "That exclusion is incompatible with the constitutional principles of respect for individual autonomy and equality under the law.", she wrote, and that was that.

It seems to me that, by and large, it's women who are wearing the pants in America today. Women who are big hearted enough to care about real people, not just those with power and money. Women who have strong principles and sharp minds. Women who have the will to do what is right, and that's that.

Y chromosomes don't seem to have the oomph that they used to.

Perhaps in some way this observation shows me to be sexist. If so, I apologize.

But the patriarchy just isn't working for most of us. I'm ready for a change.
