Hillary: Basher or Bashed?
Which most closely describes this visual reverberating through the echo chamber the past two days?
1. A thin-skinned response to a boneheaded question undermining Hillary’s credibility with Africa and the Islamic world, especially while advocating on behalf of human rights and Congolese women.
2. A forgettable reaction to an attempt to undermine Hillary’s authority just because she’s a female — and nothing to breaking a sweat over if not for the Clinton haters, the shallowness of the media, and a heaping helping of gender double-standard.
