At long last

Eight years ago, the 'Bama Bro speechwriter Jon Favreau infamously posed with a life-size cardboard cutout of Hillary Clinton, holding a beer and cupping her photo-breast. I was outraged. I thought Obama should fire him summarily. I still think he should have.

But as with so many other encounters with sexist nasties over the course of her life and career, Hillary let it roll off her, and wasn't a bit diminished. She went on to be a remarkable Secretary of State for the man who had fostered that kind of misogyny during their epic contest.

And now, the frat boy has finally apologized. Good.
