Christine O'Donnell: There Is Definitely A Sexist Double Standard (Video)

Christine O'Donnell says women in politics, especially conservative women, face a sexist double standard.

That can't be. Can it? Sexism is real?

Anderson Cooper and his panel discussed the matter last night and concluded that Christine O'Donnell is just wrong. Never mind that our culture is so steeped in misogyny that most people participate in it but don't see it, Anderson should try spending time as a woman being critiqued and man-handled by good old boys from either party. He wouldn't last an effing hour. I hope she sues.

There’s certainly a double standard and I don’t often quote Gloria Steinem but she said you can look at a double standard if they wouldn’t attack the male opponent that way and there’s no doubt that they wouldn’t say the things they’re saying about me, they wouldn’t do the things that they’re doing if I weren’t a woman. I’m not whining but there certainly is a double standard especially when it comes to conservative woman.”
