Talk about asking for a hard time!

 

 

 

With respect like this, who needs disrespect?

    Oh, goodness. Using that logic, I guess if a father wants to molest his child, said person should have been extra prepared for it. Sexism: it’s there so just deal?

    *facepalm* It hurts so much more to hear that bull from a woman. Ouch.

    I can’t help but wonder if she would feel differently if she sat down at a forum and instead of being able to conduct business, people like Chris Matthews of Hardball (*vomit*) kept flirting with her, and or making commentary about her love life, cooking skills, and or attire. Hmm. The world may never know.

    If McSame really thinks that he can win over former Hillary voters with Palin, he’s going to be seriously surprised with these astute and sexist observations! (Can a woman be sexist? I guess so…)

    There’s an interesting Op-Ed piece at the Times by Frank Rich who pointed out: “The main reason McCain knuckled under to the religious right by picking Palin is that he actually believes there’s a large army of embittered Hillary loyalists who will vote for a hard-line conservative simply because she’s a woman. That’s what happens when you listen to the TV news echo chamber. Not only is the whole premise ludicrous, but it is every bit as sexist as the crude joke McCain notoriously told about Janet Reno, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton.”

    Actually, I’m sure Palin’s been subjected to so much of what you describe that she doesn’t even notice it anymore. If Chris Matthews started leching on her in an interview, she’d probably assume it’s just the way he normally talks. That’s how it often is when you’re soaking in it.

    Wang, I’ve removed your post. We’re happy to accommodate a wide range of opinions, but we ask you to provide reasons for our taking them seriously. if you want to make allegations against Bill Clinton, you need to provide us with some evidence.
