Iron this, buddy! 

In the 1970s, Ms. Magazine called it the "click" -- that flash of insight when people see how their individual experiences fit into the whole of feminist politics. In more recent years, I've heard so many younger people, including young women, say they don't think feminism is necessary now because sexism doesn't exist anymore.
Those jerks who were shouting "Iron my shirt" at Hillary created a new "click" moment for a new generation.
And add that to the clubby press coverage of the last week, where pundit after pundit was chortling in glee that Hillary -- AKA That Ball-Busting Bitch -- was getting hers!
As TalkLeft said:
The importance of tonight's win can not be understated. It was a revolt of women sick and tired of the likes of Chris Tweety Matthews and the Media Misogynists.
That, and perhaps it took the bloom off the rose a bit to see Obama shake hands so enthusiastically with Bill O'Reilly.
