Gotta love Maureen Dowd.
With today’s column, she takes on Hillary’s traitorous behavior, writing:
Obama also allowed Hillary supporters to insert an absurd statement into the platform suggesting that media sexism spurred her loss and that “demeaning portrayals of women … dampen the dreams of our daughters…
…It would have been better to put this language in the platform: “A woman who wildly mismanages and bankrupts a quarter-of-a-billion-dollar campaign operation, and then blames sexism in society, will dampen the dreams of our daughters.”
Amen, sister. Hillary simply lost to the better candidate. She didn’t lose because she’s a woman. For one thing, before this primary season, everyone hated Hillary, remember (Clintons = liberal liars)? For another, Obama’s ground campaign outclassed Hillary. And lastly, Barack Obama, despite the media memes that have been floated out there, is undoubtedly (there were 22 debates to judge him on) a deeply intelligent man who comes off as a person of sound judgment and character. I’d bet my Blackberry that he has never cheated on his wife.
Hillary may be deeply intelligent too, but the sound judgment and character thing? Not so much.
I wrote a post the other day about it being high time for the Hillary Hags to it hang it up. A commenter suggested that using the word hags was in itself sexist, but I dispute that idea. I was writing primarily about women, but certainly the same ideas apply to men. More to the point, these women have made Hillary’s loss about gender. It’s only fair to characterize these idiots with the same weapon they use against Obama, the media, me or anyone else who finds Hillary to be a loathsome politician.
You all may love your Clintons, but after Wednesday at the convention, it’s exit stage left. Barack Obama needs your vote. And if you can’t stomach that, then think of it this way: That 14 year-old girl in Alabama needs an abortion. You’re really going to pull the lever for John McCain?
If that is the case, all I can do is remind you that you are cutting off your nose to spite your face. Good luck with that.
