The Feminization of Guilt, Martial Frindéthié

The day of his second debate with Mitt Romney, as critics of  Benghazigate become increasingly obstinate in light of new evidence suggesting that the White House has not been transparent about what they knew and when they knew it, State Department Big Boss Hillary Clinton hopes to squelch the condemnation of the Obama-Biden ticket by throwing herself under the bus: “I take responsibility … I’m in charge of the State Department’s 60000-plus people all over the world … The President and the Vice-President wouldn’t be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security personnel,” she declared. When in distress, blame a woman. The feminization of guilt has been one of politicians’ tools of predilection to get out of trouble. Will inelegant feminization of guilt do its magic this time again? It might, if the buck stops at the State Department.
