Warren is right. She’s a whiner.

Warren is right.  She’s a whiner.

Before I step into the quicksand of political correctness, allow me to assure you that I am all on board with women’s rights – although maybe not as articulated by radical left feminists.  I like strong women.  I have worked for them, hired them and lived with them.

The one characteristic I like in strong women is that they do not hide behind a shield of victimhood.  They do not see all matters in life to be judged on the scales of sexism. I have long held those characters played by Katherine Hepburn as my view of a powerful woman.  To play those parts so well, I always assumed that they must reflect her real character to a large extent.

What I do not admire is best personified by Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.  She can scold and yell, but I do not see her as a strong woman.  The ability to shoot off one’s mouth is not an indicator of strength – but arguably weakness and insecurity.  A strong woman would not hide behind victimization excuses for failing to be handed the Democrat presidential nomination because … she is a woman.

Warren attributes her downfall to sexism.  America is not yet ready to elect a woman to the nation’s highest office, she says.  In fact, her claims of victimization are nothing more than a weakling’s rationalization for failure on a larger scale.

In her post-exit interviews, Warren expressed the radical feminist mantra that the most important consideration for the presidency is being a woman … period.  She noted that most voters are women.  Ergo, a woman should be President.  It is not about her as a person and a politician.  It is not about her proposals, but about her gender.

Warren did not fail because she is a woman.  She failed because her highly touted “plans” were unacceptable.  They were crafted to convince gullible voters that her plans were more than ethereal campaign talking points.  Her campaign floundered when she could not explain how she was going to pay for all that free stuff.

Warren failed because Bernie Sanders already dominated the gullible left.  But he had credibility.  She did not because of her flagrant attempts to polish her resume with falsehoods about her ethnicity and her early work experience.

She also failed – in my judgment — because she is not a very likable person.  That opinion does not come from a sexist heart.  I find Warren’s female competitors – Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, and Tulsi Gabbard – to be personally much more likable – although not their politics.

Unfortunately, Warren is supported by a number of women who will believe that their candidate was defeated only because she is a woman.  People like actress/feminist Stephanie Wittels Wachs, who tweeted: “If @warren were a man, she would be the next POTUS. Full stop. Her gender is her biggest obstacle.”  Yeah … right.

Being a woman may actually have been a huge advantage for Warren.  It got her a lot of favorable publicity from a fawning liberal media.  Consider the publicity she is getting after dropping out compared to former Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Congressman Beto O’Rourke – and a bunch of other men who suspended their presidential campaigns.

Warren’s cries over what she sees as oppressive sexism ring hollow when you consider that she rose from humble beginnings to become a United States Senator worth more than $12 million.  We should all be so victimized.

Warren said that if she said it was not sexism,  a gazillion of women would be shocked.  And if she said her loss was due to sexism, she would be called a whiner.  In her broader statements, Warren implied, suggested and even said it was sexism.  So, she is correct.  She is a whiner.

So, there ‘tis.
