Clinton supporter James Carville says that Barack Obama isn’t man enough to be President, but that Hillary Clinton is. “If she gave him one of her cojones, they’d both have two.” Clinton supporter Taylor Marsh cheers him on, and links gleefully to a story about how Clinton is “ballsy” and has the “testicular fortitude” Obama lacks. Now can we hear some more from the Clinton camp about the misogyny being deployed in this race?
