The Republican party is an all male enterprise… preferably all white men. There are a few women sprinkled around, but they are mostly regulated to the outermost corners of the party, along with the few minorities that call themselves Republican.
Based on their recent assault on women, it would seem that the men in the party prefer their women seen and not heard, so it was no surprise when Pat Buchanan, a former Republican Presidential candidate – expressed his wishes that the longer it took America to see a female president, the better off we’ll be.
During a panel discussion on PBS over the weekend, host John McLaughlin asked Buchanan when the U.S. would elect the first female president.
“2040 or 2050,” Buchanan predicted.
“That late?” McLaughlin wondered.
“Let’s hope so,” Buchanan replied with a chuckle.
“They’re not even considering any woman for vice president on the Republican ticket,” he later added. “I was joking about 2040!”
