Until next time.

Thank you to all who have read our posts, commented, emailed, and spread the truth.

We wish the outcome had been different, that the will of the people to have Hillary be the nominee had been respected, but, as we learned in 2000, American democracy can at times be quite illusory. Yet we have not been trampled into a state of depressive submission; instead we are emboldened. We look forward to 2012, when we will say hello again to the true victor of this year’s race, Hillary Clinton. As for Obama, the close of the primary season is really the beginning of a long goodbye, one that will end in November. Obama will be a blip in history, which is sad really, as he held such promise in our eyes only a few years ago. That’s the difference though, Obama promised, Hillary delivered.

Here’s to you Hillary we’ll see you soon…

A slap in the face of bravery…

This is an interesting video compilation of the sexist attacks against Hillary by the media, the public, and yes St. Obama himself, set to Hillary’s brave and groundbreaking 1995 UN speech on women’s rights.

Hillary speaks to us…

Hillary Clinton recently held a conference call with blogger supporters; I recommend listening to it. Sincere brilliance. Click here.

Obama just loves women…

One has to wonder about how he chooses to interact with women in a PC world. From Maureen Dowd:

Hillary has clearly raised Obama’s consciousness about the importance of courting the ladies. Touring a manufacturing plant in Allentown, Pa., Tuesday, he was flirtatious, winking and grinning at the women working there, calling one “Sweetie,” telling another she was “beautiful,” and imitating his daughters’ dance moves by twirling around. Later, at a Scranton town hall, he went up to Denise Mercuri, a pharmacist from Dunmore wearing a Hillary button. “What do I need to do? Do you want me on my knees?” he charmed, before promising: “I’ll give you a kiss.”

I suppose he was trying to be charming, but it sounds immature, condescending and politically naive coming from the mouth of a presidential candidate. His behavior in Pennsylvania went beyond the “habit” of calling women “sweetie.” As a presidential candidate, he needs to come across as,well, presidential. (I know the standards have been lowered in the last 7 years by the current occupant of the White House, but we should demand more from those aspiring to be president.

Sean Penn Speaks!

To be honest, I would have thought Barack Obama would be right up Sean Penn’s alley. For what little it’s worth, turns out he’s not. He had this to say at Cannes; Read the rest of this entry »

Maybe Obama should stop calling women sweetie….

Although it’s probably too late…

Here’s the sweetie link in case you missed it. This is the seciond time he’s called a female reporter sweetie in the last few weeks.

And while we’re on a youtube trip, did you hear Obama’s joke about the 57 United States? Oh wait, it wasn’t a joke…

Goodbye to all that.

From Marie Cocco’s essay in the Washington Post;

As the Democratic nomination contest slouches toward a close, it’s time to take stock of what I will not miss.

I will not miss seeing advertisements for T-shirts that bear the slogan “Bros before Hos.” The shirts depict Barack Obama (the Bro) and Hillary Clinton (the Ho) and are widely sold on the Internet.

I will not miss walking past airport concessions selling the Hillary Nutcracker, a device in which a pantsuit-clad Clinton doll opens her legs to reveal stainless-steel thighs that, well, bust nuts. I won’t miss television and newspaper stories that make light of the novelty item.

I won’t miss episodes like the one in which liberal radio personality Randi Rhodes called Clinton a “big [expletive] whore” and said the same about former vice presidential nominee Read the rest of this entry »
