Marcia Pappas, president of New York’s chapter of the National Organization for Women, has asked Obama to placate female voters with promises of “gifts.” Such as:
- Four or five pro-choice, women appointed to the US Supreme Court, plus a pro-choice litmus test for all lower-court appointments.
- Replace DNC Chairman Howard Dean with a woman “who will not sit back quietly whil sexist attacks are levid against women candidates.”
- Ensure superdelegates reflect gender equality.
- Change the primary system (Pappas deems caucuses “not democratic” and wants to allow secret ballots so women aren’t “intimidated” and can “vote their conscience.”
Apparently, sexism is still okay … as long as it’s from a female-dominant position.
I had Marcia on Dialog back in 2005. She didn’t seem so loony then. The podcast is here.
