Double Standard with how we treat male idiots vs female idiots
Why is it cool when a man is dumb as a rock!? We all agree that Palin, Bachmann, and Engle are not presidential material. Yet when it comes to male idiots, like Reagan and Bush, and now Trump, they get rewarded with the presidency??

1. Is it cool? I never thought so.
But, what do I know?

2. Find me one DUer who thinks that any of the men you mention are
'presidential material.'

In the absence of that single example, your "double standard" is nonexistent.

5. The election is over already?
Wow, that was quick and painless. It only seems like it was yesterday that it was April 2011.
