If Sexism were Racism

Dr. Violet Socks over at The Reclusive Leftist has an interesting rant about Obama. I can't agree with her conclusion to not ever vote for Obama, because McCain has promised more supreme court justices like Roberts and Alito (would that be Catholic men?). But the bit which rewrites the media's sexist treatment of Clinton in reverse, so that Obama receives the racist media treatment, highlights how sexism is invisible to most men and women. Sexism flies under the radar, so it never gets rooted out.
