But right away, I come to this buffoonery:
Maybe being the hip, liberated female that I am, I don't see anything sexist about using a phrase "put in her place" in this context. In fact, what I find more annoying as that hip, liberated female is that the eedjut didn't address the issue. How girly is it to ignore the gist of the criticism being leveled at you and instead, stamp your foot and say they are picking on you because you're a guuuuuurrrrllllll.
The approach emerged last week when the National Republican Congressional Committee, the campaign arm of House Republicans, issued a statement saying it hopes Gen. Stanley McChrystal, commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, puts Pelosi "in her place" on Afghan policy. The statement accused Pelosi, a California Democrat, of putting party politics ahead of national security in her cautious statements on expanding the U.S. military presence in Afghanistan.
Pelosi Thursday called the statement sexist. "It's really sad. They really don't understand how inappropriate that is," she told reporters. "I'm in my place. I'm speaker of the House, the first woman speaker of the House. And I'm in my place because the House of Representatives voted me there. That language is something I haven't even heard in decades."
