Quote of the Day: Troglodytes!!

In a compelling article on Salon.com this morning, author Greg Kamiya dissects Steinem’s much discussed Op-Ed piece last week. The article is worthy of more discussion (which I’ll get to later today), but this little gem was buried on the third page:

There are plenty of social conservatives who are still fighting modernity, plenty of resentful reactionaries who find it improper or unseemly that any woman should run for president, or indeed hold any position of power, and who disguise their unreconstructed sexism by disingenuously claiming that they think it’s only Clinton who is a castrating bitch, or whatever other ugly psychosexual epithet they pull out of the muck of their ids. But these troglodytes are a small minority.

This just might be the best use of troglodytes ever. And I can’t help but swoon over the use of castrating, psychosexual, and id in one sentence.
