In what can only be understood as the height of knee-jerk causeless whining the National Organization of Women New York chapter has decided that the Kennedy endorsement of Obama is a blow to all women everywhere. Apparently there is no choice left, it’s just vote Hillary or die. Regardless of how sexist, choice-less, or reactionary it is. The exact quote from the AP:

“Women have just experienced the ultimate betrayal,” NOW’s New York State chapter said in a scorching rebuke. “Senator Kennedy’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s opponent in the Democratic presidential primary campaign has really hit women hard.”

“We are repaid with his abandonment!” the statement said. “He’s picked the new guy over us. He’s joined the list of progressive white men who can’t or won’t handle the prospect of a woman president who is Hillary Clinton.”

If there was ever a face of insipid, shrill, stupid, women it’s the NoW New York Chapter. As a woman I’m offended, as a former feminist I’m offended. If they wanted to make their organization completely irrelevant, and a punchline they’ve surely succeeded. They could’ve taken the high road and issued a card of women’s issues, or asked ALL the candidates to put a focus on that. Instead, they stomped their feet like spoiled brats. I hope the national organization gets that chapter in a room and puts some heads on plates.
