In the last few days I have watched in amazement and horror as our political space quickly degenerated into a despicable cesspit, as so-called leaders trade below-the-belt jabs. I have heard politicians from all sides of all the divides, describe each other using private body parts, and generally pollute the air with untold amounts of stinking effluent, gushing out of both sides of their mouths. Please don’t get wrong. I know it has been a while since a majority of our politicians spoke sense, but what we’ve seen this last couple of days is truly beyond belief. But tonight, I am choosing to pick on the women politicians. First for the sake of my own daughters but secondly because of our history.
