What if the Media Treated Male Politicians like Female Politicians?

Super amazing candidate for TX governor Wendy Davis is getting a lot of BS from the right and the media in general about her mothering skills. It's completely unfair and a waste of the voters' time.

It's also, sadly, just another example of the media and the right treating female politicians horribly compared to male politicians. To sum it up, blogger Avital Norman Nathman wrote a piece for the Frisky (re-posted by HuffPo) positing what it would be like for men to be treated the way women do in politics. It's a solid - if depressing - thought experiment.
