O'Reilly Guest Insists Hillary Is Pushing a "Female Agenda"

I may not be a Clinton supporter, but when you have this level of misogyny floating out on the airwaves, all women are being slimed and it has to be called out. From the O’Reilly Factor, guest Marc Rudov, author of Under the Clitoral Hood: How to Crank Her Engine Without Cash, Booze, or Jumper Cables (no lie) said this:

O’REILLY: Tonight, we begin a brand new segment called, “He Said, She Said,” where we’ll deal with issues from a gender-based point of view. The segment will run every Friday, but we wanted to debut it tonight with a very provocative question: What is the downside of having a woman become president of the United States?
…RUDOV: You mean besides the PMS and the mood swings, right?
O’REILLY: But guys have mood swings, Marc. And you know —
RUDOV: Right.

O’REILLY: — they have other control issues, as we just heard with Governor Spitzer and we saw with various presidents. So come on now, let’s be fair.
