We have two great candidates–one a hard working, never give up eager beaver, and one an inspiring, heart-leapingly brilliant stallion. Both have their merits. Both care for what Democrats are best at caring for–working people, children’s and women’s rights, financial realism.
The stallion makes heart-stopping speeches. And the beaver just beavers along. remembering how she won over upstate New York when everyone called that impossible. And called her a carpetbagger. And the stallion is drunk on his own rhetoric. Why not? It’s great rhetoric.
We need beavers and we need stallions. Beavers get the work done. Stallions inspire us. And they both have limitations. Stallions have fragile legs (think Barbaro). And beavers are nothing without their teeth.
Jesus. It’s carrot sticks and onion rings all over again, substituted with vagina dentata and mandingo. Much like everybody’s favourite tenured floor-pisser, I think we’d all be better off if, in the future, Erica Jong kept her id zipped up, too.
