Thanks for the clip of the Ridiculist. I wasn't able to watch 360 because of 'Gotham' but liked seeing this Ridiculist because that ridiculous woman certainly needs to be ridiculed.

I liked many parts of this Ridiculist, from Anderson stating the 2016 Presidential election was only in its "larva stage" to referencing 'Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure' to pointing out that a female Vice-President is only a heartbeat away from becoming President.

Did anyone see the original full interview with Sheryl Rios? Was the interviewer was able to ask Rios about Margaret Thatcher of Great Britian, Angela Merkel of Germany, Tarja Halonen of Finland or Julia Gilliard of Australia?
Or maybe some questions about hormones, in both men and women, their role in decision-making? Does she have any science to back up her statements. Well, hey, she's from Texas, why am I expecting any rational scientific thought from her?

Slight tangent here -- yesterday on Gawker there was an article on Kathrine Switzer, the first enrolled numbered female runner of the Boston Marathon. The Marathon, like all marathons, did not allow women to run because running a marathon might make a woman's uterus fall out. I'm not making this up. Switzer enrolled using the name K.V. Switzer but was accosted during the run by a man upset that a woman was in the marathon.

It's a really good article and I loved one of the comments in which the writer said her nine-year-old daughter thought she was lying when she told her women weren't allowed to vote before 1920.

Women can vote now, can be CEOs of their own company, can run marathons and even run a country. So, Sheryl Rios, go ahead and move to Canada…a country that may be closer to a female head of state than the U.S.

Is that woman simply being used, or paid, to take votes away from Hillary Clinton. She is not very good at it, saying a woman could go for Vice President but never should be President. Consider that if something happened to the President the woman Vice President would be President.
