White Chicks on Dope or "The Palin Perplex'
White women don't like, for the overwhelming most part, Conservative women.
Meg Whitman was called a whore, because it worked. Christine O'Donnell, and Sarah Palin, were called sluts, because it worked. [Both are toxic to women, and O'Donnell's ill-advised ad saying she did not go to Yale was a disaster. White women are probably the most status-conscious group on the planet, and view Ivy League credentials as magic, as of course do highly feminized elite men like Tom Friedman. There are relatively few Tom Friedmans, thankfully, but most White women set everything on status, and they are many where Friedman type men votes are few. Like Nelson's captains and "honor" having the right status is all, between social ruin and prosperity.]
Anyone who ever saw an episode of "Gilmore Girls" would know what a huge mistake that was, by O'Donnell. The popular WB-CW series featured a "hip single mother" and hip young daughter, both obsessed with the latter getting into Harvard or Yale. A modern day princess story (the mother and daughter were estranged heiresses to a fortune, pursued by often drunk, but always rich and hunky guys, video of one below). When O'Donnell said she didn't go to Yale, she got a lot of White male voter approval (not all of course) but sunk herself with White women. She might as well have said she didn't like romance novels at Twilight convention.

It took a lot of fun out of the Belmont Club when he ran Whiskey off.

Whiskey's a brave man who gets to the point on issues of race that most of us only dare to think about.
He's a bit off on the male/female dhicotomy though. He can't explain the great number of women (almost half of "membership") in the Tea Party movement, the numerous Republican women who won seats in the House -- in a number of cases defeating the type of women Whiskey describes.
Whiskey has ascribed the attributes of some American women who bought the whole feminist enchilada to the vast majority of American women. He's been proven wrong by events and demographics. Included in those numerous other women that Whiskey fails to acknowledge as even existing are quite a few with considerable education, just not from Yale and its like.

The point about status is well-taken, but I am not sure that outside of certain demographics the question of whether a female candidate has a degree from Harvard or Yale matters. It may mater to the characters on 'The Gilmore Girls', but I don't see that as being a very wide subset of the population. (And, quite frankly, I couldn't imagine a 'Gilmore Girl' being concerned with national, state, or local politics.)
I do note that I am a middle-aged male, so I may be very, very wrong.

Women are more style and consensus driven, thus susceptible to liberal views. In the long-run they are liberal. All it takes is one good sob story and they will support the most ruinous of government programs, just in case it helps one person. The most reliable women conservatives are married women, but marriage isn't a long-term trend. The more exposure women have to beta and omega males the more contemptuous they become of men, in general, and their bastard babies are all raised like girls or androgynous metrosexuals. This further puts normal manliness even further into exile. We're doomed.
