Charlote Allen asks, "We Scream, We Swoon. How Dumb Can We Get?" Pretty darn dumb, apparently:
Here's Agence France-Presse reporting on a rally for Sen. Barack Obama at the University of Maryland on Feb. 11: "He did not flinch when women screamed as he was in mid-sentence, and even broke off once to answer a female's cry of 'I love you, Obama!' with a reassuring 'I love you back.' " Women screamed? What was this, the Beatles tour of 1964? And when they weren't screaming, the fair-sex Obama fans who dominated the rally of 16,000 were saying things like: "Every time I hear him speak, I become more hopeful." Huh?

"Women 'Falling for Obama,' " the story's headline read. Elsewhere around the country, women were falling for the presidential candidate literally.

Alas, the old sexist stereotypes hold true. Women ARE more emotional. There's a reason why "hysteria" is a term associated with women. It's because they are fully capable in large numbers of acting like idiots in situations like this, thus confirming for all observers which is the 'weaker sex.'

And after all these years of feminist 'enlightenment'!

But what should we expect from a feminist movement that lost its way several decades back when it succumbed to the rhetoric of the postmodern neo-marxist fascists?

These ideologically-in-lockstep, histrionic gals learned a critical lesson from all that rhetoric; and it is what underlies their abandonment of Hillary Clinton for the girlish and non-threatening smiles of Obama: race trumps gender in the victimhood heirarchy of the left. Therefore, Obama is far more deserving of their adoration and worship. They never celebrated stars like Condi Rice--who broke out of both the gender and the race molds maintained by the left-- because the fact that she was a vile Republican made her ineligible in the left's victimhood sweepstakes.

Yep. You have to be pretty darn dumb to behave like that. Or, less than 16 years of age.

Either way, the level of maturity that drives the behavior of today's representatives of the political left is rather awe-inspiring.

UPDATE: And for a case in point of the awe-inspiring histrionics of the left, you need look no further than the 'famous' Jane Hamsher of Firedoglakepuddle--who singlehandedly assured the re-election of Joe Lieberman by energetically supporting his opponent; and whose laughable use of the term "insufferably ignorant" reaches new heights of cluelessness--even for her. Let us hope she decides to support Obama and does for him exactly what she did for Ned Lamont.
