A backlash against backlash

Why did Hillary Clinton win in New Hampshire? The short answer is women and misogyny. Women turned out in force to back her, and one of their motivations was the increasingly misogynistic tone of the media pundits, combined with caveman antics by arseholes. This was a backlash against backlash, or in the words of Talkleft, "a revolt of women sick and tired of the likes of Chris Tweety Matthews and the Media Misogynists". And whichever way the nomination ultimately goes, its a good thing that it has happened.
