Madeleine Albright

Of sanctions against Iraq (preceding George W. Bush’s invasion of the country) that killed children, Madeleine Albright infamously said, “This is a very hard choice, but the price, we think the price is worth it.”[1] She regretted that remark later,[2] but the fact remains that she said it.

Albright also participated in a supposedly feminist exoneration of Bill Clinton for, um, taking advantage of Monica Lewinsky.[3]

Now, she’s dead,[4] and we aren’t hearing about all that now, but is the lesson of her life that, in order to advance, women must be every bit as psychopathic as men?
