If you are a Hillary-hating “progressive” blogger who repeatedly denied the existence of sexism during the primaries, how do you deal with this?:
Just like a barroom rape scene. Except, you know, with a cardboard cut-out. And no rape.
I am not going to argue what they were doing was appropriate for public consumption, but calling this akin to the early stages of rape is wankery of the first order.
John Cole wasn’t concerned about the behavior of Barack Obama’s chief speechwriter, just the criticism of Mr. Favreau. Kinda strange priorities for a progressive isn’t it? And Mr. Cole only thinks it was innappropriate for “public consumption.” I guess that means what goes on behind closed doors is okay?
This is the same John Cole who said this in regards to the RFK assassination fauxrage:
Hillary is breaking barriers alright, with yet another victory for feminism:
Hillary Clinton today brought up the assassination of Sen. Robert Kennedy while defending her decision to stay in the race against Barack Obama.
“My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don’t understand it,” she said, dismissing calls to drop out.
Sociopath. What else can you really say?
Pretty amazing. Hillary is now claiming that she is partially justified staying in the race because let’s face it- someone might kill Obama.
I have to confess- I am celebrating Hillary’s implosion today. I went out earlier and had two glasses of wine, a spectacular grilled romaine salad with avocado and a raspberry vinagrette, and then a splendidly rare filet mignon in an oyster demi-glaze on a bed of asparagus. Because, you know, I am an elitist. And then I had a fat cigar.
A few months back I was defending her, and was ready to vote for her, even after years as a Republican. And then I watched her campaign and I realized once again how repellent she is.
Yeah, I really wish I could be more graceful about this, but since dinner, I have had a couple more drinks and I keep getting more ecstatic. In my defense, you know what you get when you come here, so deal with it. All praise the Giant Spaghetti Monster, please give us another pervert Republican this weekend and the week will be complete.
Again, I wish I could be more tactful, but after watching her lackeys and her supporters spend the last three months with no real route to the nomination sniping from the sidelines hoping for an Obama disaster to propel OUR LADY OF INEVITABILITY to the nomination, you can consider this a pretty damned good day for me.
But John, you say- she was just talking about the timeline. Whatever. Bye, Hillary.
As a personal aside, I found that the self-immolation of the most narcissistic campaign ever washes down really fucking well with a Pinot Noir. Fuck off and good riddance.
PS- In pure Clintonian fashion, expect her to play the victim tomorrow. Why, she just made an innocuous statement about the election timeline and all these Obama supporters are trying to push the little woman out.
Fuck that nonsense. Buy some garlic and a wooden stake and tell her and her supporters to piss right off.
John Cole began his blogging career as a Bush-loving, Democrat-hating conservative Republican. Can you tell? But if you think what John Cole said was outrageous, here is one of his regulars from today’s comments at Balloon Juice:
Personally, I think Hillary would be flattered that a couple of young studs want to get her drunk and grope her. At her age, that is one hell of a compliment.
That was from a person who calls himself “Conservatively Liberal.” Using his logic, unattractive women who are raped should feel lucky somebody wanted to have sex with them.
