Caitlin Flanagan's death march to the G.O.P.

Don't look now but author Caitlin Flanagan feeling sorry for herself in Time Magazine:

But despite all that, there is apparently no room for me in the Democratic Party. In fact, I have spent much of the past week on a forced march to the G.O.P. And the bayonet at my back isn’t in the hands of the Republicans; the Democrats are the bullyboys. Such lions of the left as Barbara Ehrenreich, the writers at Salon and much of the Upper West Side of Manhattan have made it abundantly clear to me that I ought to start packing my bags. I’m not leaving, but sometimes I wonder: When did I sign up to be the beaten wife of the Democratic Party?
Amanda recognizes good theater when she sees it:
Tilt that chin up to the light, let the tears dribble down just a little. Hopefully there will be someone with broad shoulders and the brains of a pea standing there, ready to gather her up and comfort her. “There, there, why do the meanie feminists have it out for a sweet little girl like you who never did nothing to nobody?”
As a mean feminist, I want to set the record straight: Caitlin, honey, we don't have contempt for your lifestyle, we just have contempt for you personally.
