Thanks and kudos to Katha Pollitt for this column. There is indeed a risk that revving up the opression sweepstakes, which have for some time been the bathroom cock-size comparisons of mainstream liberalism, will result in John McCain giving the inaugural address in a little under a year. It kind of makes me yearn for that white-male-inspired class politics Pollitt has incrementally pooh-poohed over the last few years. Not that I'm going to vote for John Edwards on that basis.
