Interviewed by the NYT, Bernie Sanders was asked an inane question. Check out his response...
Do you think it’s fair that Hillary’s hair gets a lot more scrutiny than yours does? Hillary’s hair gets more scrutiny than my hair?
Yeah. Is that what you’re asking?
Yeah. O.K., Ana, I don’t mean to be rude here. I am running for president of the United States on serious issues, O.K.? Do you have serious questions?
I can defend that as a serious question. There is a gendered reason — When the media worries about what Hillary’s hair looks like or what my hair looks like, that’s a real problem. We have millions of people who are struggling to keep their heads above water, who want to know what candidates can do to improve their lives, and the media will very often spend more time worrying about hair than the fact that we’re the only major country on earth that doesn’t guarantee health care to all people.
In 2004, Chris Matthews asked John Kerry "What's your favorite movie?" -- and later insisted that he had asked a serious question. There's always a way to rationalize anything
We'd have a better country if both Republican and Democratic candidates brusquely -- even rudely -- told idiot interviewers to stop talking about nonsense.
