I like Deep, BUT his brother is cooler...

Yeah, you're right, no one would really believe me.

Hillary has a radio active personality, this is in fact is why many view her as having shrew like attributes.

The same people on the other side who recoil at Newt not because of his substance but because of his lofty meat headedness, don't have a melt down and schreech-

"Oh Reverse sexism, oh reverse sexism!"

Some political people have likeable personalities, and some don't.
It's that simple.

What's even more unfair for Newt is that he has a higher IQ than any candidate running now, but isn't likeable.

shrew- A woman with a violent, scolding, or nagging temperament; a scold.

As in "the taming of"

ThesaurusLegend: Synonyms Related Words Antonyms

Noun 1. shrew - a scolding nagging bad-tempered woman
termagant
disagreeable woman, unpleasant woman - a woman who is an unpleasant person
virago - a noisy or scolding or domineering woman
yenta - (Yiddish) a vulgar shrew; a shallow coarse termagant

"screech" reverse sexism?

When people start calling Newt a shrew we can talk. Apples and oranges..double standards.

You're digging yourself a hole here, dbs. Try and dance around it all you want, but when you show pics comparing her to a witch, call her a "shrew instead of a lady," you are being sexist. Period.

Martha's right, too. You'd have a lot more credibility around here if you left those kinds of comments and lame pictures out.

Who is having a "meltdown"? So melodramatic.

Show me a man with similar personality traits that Hillary has and show me you calling him the male equivalent of a shrew (is there such a word, hmmm) and posting witch pictures when referring to him and making other sexist comments about him. You are completely blind to the double standard you display here, as others have told you here-not just me. Until you can criticize Senator Clinton in a non-sexist way I'll continue to point it out.
