It's a career above the clouds, a sky full of opportunity. So America's female airline pilots have one question: Why aren't there more of us? "There have been women airline pilots for decades. But it is not a warm and fuzzy profession," says Karen Guadagni, 49, of St. Joseph, who is a captain for ExpressJet on flights for United and Delta airlines.

Well I sure as heck don't want Hillary! The problem today is people have a hard time separating a comment thrown out as a joke, and get their bowels in an uproar.

Of course, there are exceptions to every situation (not saying women are better overall).
These jokes are not funny in any context.
