Reflections on the Republican Nomination Process

Let’s just admit it.  We have a pretty stupid process of choosing the Republican nominee.  The Democrats’ process is even more fouled up and overcomplicated, but at least they don’t have to go through with it this time around.  We Republicans, on the other hand, are stuck with a terrible process for choosing the best person to face off against President Obama.

I also can’t understand why women like to attack each other when it comes to politics.  They seem obsessed with the glass ceiling, yet when a woman has a chance at higher office, her biggest critics are of her own gender.  I don’t pretend to be an expert on gender politics (I don’t waste my time on “gender studies” because I take real classes), but something sinister is certainly at work here.
