Hillary Clinton

Palin really is the right-wing woman that the faux-feminists claimed Hillary to be

It’s time for another edition of “comments that should have been posts.” I’m elevating this one to post status because a) it’s true, and b) it’s the kind of thing that gets our stomach acids going for days here in the Smoking Lounge. At any rate, over in the Hillary poll thread, Alice P. said […]

Poll: if Palin runs in 2012, will that entice Hillary to run again?

Sarah Palin is a gifted politician. She may be crazy and wrong about a lot of stuff, but she’s still a charismatic leader. Read, for example, this thoughtful comment by Ciccina — who, I assure you from secret personal knowledge, is as much a radical feminist as myself. As Ciccina says, “she’s their Hillary.” Sarah […]

Clinton/Gaga 2012

Or maybe 2016. We gotta plan ahead. Read Falstaff on the incompetence of the Obama administration (more on that later) and Hillary Clinton’s prospects: The most interesting thing to me, political-leader-wise, is Hillary’s position. I think she’s holding a remarkable hand. If/when it becomes obvious to a majority of Americans that Barack Obama is Jimmy […]

“What does your husband think?”

Several people have mentioned this to me, so here it is: I don’t blame her. True, “Mr. Clinton” is a former President, which you can’t say about the spouse of any other Secretary of State, but still. I can’t imagine anyone asking a male Secretary of State what his wife thought about Chinese copper investments […]

Washington Post gets POST’D

This is fricking genius: I don’t know who that guy is on the left, but I want to marry him. Also: mimed poo-throwing. Gold. Unfortunately this video made me laugh so hard I almost burst my insides and I can’t afford to have surgery, goddammit. (Whoops, I think I may have just blown my chance […]

If everybody in my blogroll is covering it, then by law I must cover it too

Okay, not everybody, but quite a few folks: The Confluence: Dana Milbank says Hillary should drink “Mad Bitch” beer Shakesville: Charming Echidne: “Mad Bitch” Tennessee Guerilla Women: Dana Milbank: Hillary Can Drink “Mad Bitch” Beer Corrente: Fuck The Washington Post, Part II This is what they’re all talking about: Suggesting that Hillary Clinton drink Mad […]

We could have had HER!

My fantabulous new blogroll-feed plugin is already paying dividends: I saw this post from Egalia almost as soon as she put it up. On Meet The Press this morning, Hillary was asked about the prospects for a woman president: Cliff Notes version of the interview as reported by Reuters, in case you have trouble seeing […]

Thank God he’s pure enough to lay the wreath

That’s what I thought when I saw today’s picture of the O-man at Arlington National Cemetery. I was remembering the campaign last year, when Obama’s team organized a conference call with reporters to argue that because Hillary Clinton had mis-remembered the details of her Bosnia trip, she would be unfit to perform this ceremony as […]

I’ve decided Obama is a messenger from God

By · Friday, May 8th, 2009 · 60 Comments »

It’s today’s announcement on polar bears that has prompted my epiphany. Obama was sent here by God as a kind of catharsis-inducing hypocrisy-detector, designed to expose the misogyny of those who worship him while simultaneously reviling (in explicitly sexist terms) women who hold similar political positions. I mean, it’s gotta be that, right? Here’s the […]

Hey, Ms. — this is what a feminist looks like

By · Tuesday, January 13th, 2009 · 24 Comments »

Originally posted at The New Agenda. Senator Clinton’s confirmation hearing this morning reminded us all of what brilliance, competence, and feminism look like. I loved this bit: “The ancient Roman poet Terence, who was born a slave and rose to become one of the great voices of his time, declared that ‘in every endeavor, the […]
