Fischer: America will never elect “a saggy”, “old” Hillary Clinton

Presumably, John McCain is a virile, fit young man by comparison, and certainly a better pick for office.

And by virile and fit, I mean he has a penis, despite being older and saggier.

You know damn well exactly what he means by this. Not “a democrat”, not “old” — he means “a woman”.

    It’s funny how age only gets played as a reason to object to women in situations like that. It’s never the age of a man that’s a reason to object to them.

    For fuck sake, how old is Fischer?

    Clinton is 4 years older than he is. Assuming his ‘official age’ isn’t fake.

    Well, I’m feeling catty this morning, so I will opine that he looks worse.

    So the moment the outward signals of fertility are gone, a woman loses all value? Her intellect, her skills are irrelevant before, during and after her child bearing years, except as a wife and mother; so once they’re gone she’s just breathing some man’s oxygen?

    I have no opinion of his external appearance, but his mind is a very ugly place.

    @JohnnieCanuck #5 – According to rightwing dogma, a woman’s value is defined by her ability and willingness to be a man’s sex toy and baby maker. Once a woman can no longer serve as one or the other, she gets traded for a younger model.

    Fischer of course looks like a distinguished trustworthy elder statesman. Not at all like a woman would at the same age.

    Men get people concerned about their age if they are pushing 80 and may not live out their term. Hillary Clinton is 65. I guess women become too old when their boobs point south.

    By the 2015 election, she’ll be 68. That would make her the second oldest to take office, but still younger than Reagan, who did two terms.

    Two words. Mommy Issues.

    Damn straight! When we finally get us a woman president, she’s just got to be hawt like Sarah Palin!

    Remember when everyone was saying that the American people would never elect a man with the “unfortunate” name of “Barack Hussein Obama?”

    Actually, I think an upper age limit on candidates is worth considering; it’s fairly clear Reagan was already suffering the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease when elected, and age just does reduce your stamina, resilience and cognitive capacity. But if it were considered, it would make sense for it to be a few years older for women than for men.

    @ Ace of Sevens:

    By the 2015 election

    Technically, the election is in 2016. But I found this (potential typo?) quite amusing since all of 2015 will effectively be presidential campaigns.
