Those Wacky Democrats

Donald J. Boudreaux logicates in The Wall Street Journal:
Hillary Clinton is now complaining that her candidacy has been harmed by sexism. Interviewed earlier this week by the Washington Post, Sen. Clinton said the polls show that "more people would be reluctant to vote for a woman [than] to vote for an African American." This gender bias, she grumbled, "rarely gets reported on."[...]

But here's another revelation. If Mrs. Clinton is correct that she is more likely than Barack Obama to defeat John McCain in November, that implies Republicans and independents are less sexist than Democrats.
Yeah, but we are still racist, homophobic, xenophobic bigots. And 3 out of 4 ain't bad.
