Nancy Pelosi: Hell No, Hillary Clinton's Vote For the Iraq War Doesn't Disqualify Her, Because It's Much More Important To Elect a Woman President

She ought to be embarrassed -- but she's not, and nor are all the rabid Ready for Female Stuff chippies.

PELOSI: A war vote is a vote that everybody makes on the basis of what think know, what they believe, who they trust. There's large number of people who supported the war. The consequences have been terrible in terms of what it meant to our veterans and the rest of that, but no. the answer is no. I don't think it should disqualify her...

What's important is what it would mean to elect a woman president of the United States. Itís a very mayor or consideration. A very qualified woman to be president of the United States. Not just that she is a woman. When I became even whip, the response was so overwhelming from people saying how encouraged they were that we had broken not the glass ceiling, that's nothing. We're talking about the marble ceiling.

And speaking of women who are terrible and basically racist against penises, if like American feminists' silly fake-ass made-up statistics -- that dumb 1-in-5 crankery, that silly 77% twaddle -- you're gonna love French feminists' silly fake-ass made-up statistics.

1-in-5? Pshaw. The French (socialist) government is peddling a study claiming one hundred effing percent of French women are harassed on public transportation.

One hundred percent! Every single female!

Now that's how you do fake statistics, my friends: Go big or go home.

According to a French government study, 100 percent of women have experienced sexual harassment or worse on public transport. While it illustrates a real problem, FRANCE 24 found the figure was presented out of context.

...

In the report, which was commissioned by the State Secretary for Womenís Rights, Pascale Boistard, the HCEfh indicates widespread predatory behavior against women in buses, trains and metros within France. Indeed, it says that 100 percent of female public transport users have experienced harassment or sexual aggression at one time or another.

The HCEfh claims that all French women have experienced some kind of unwanted sexual attention while riding on public transport.

Can this really be true? Well, not exactly.

When contacted by FRANCE 24, the HCEfh's spokeswoman contextualized the figures, providing information that was not included in the report. The group admitted that it did not hire a research institute, but instead calculated the statistics from a sample of 300 women who had all participated in a public consultation about women's roles in the public space and...harassment in public transport. This means that all of the women polled were already concerned by the subject in question.

They contacted women who had already self-identified as being upset about harassment on public transportation, then asked this self-selected group if they'd ever been harassed on public transportation (as they define "harassment").

Now that's how you do it, Ladies.

#YesAllWomen? Yes, indeed, #YesAllWomen!!!
