AOL News Punches Hillary Clinton

AOL News likes to beat up a woman with a 02/20/08 headline reading "Bruised Clinton Looks to Ohio, Texas" and a photo of her with mouth open, looking quite scared. No doubt I've seen misogynistic bends on their reporting before in articles like "Want a Happy Marriage? Be Nice, Don't Nitpick" on AOL Health, a sad commentary (by a woman) on where women belong in a relationship (silent and accepting of men as they are because men don't want therapy). I've been watching Clinton treated like nothing more than a woman who's too ambitious to be taken seriously by any man, so much so she deserves to be beaten, in a more literal sense than in the context of a presidential race, and it hurts.
