Here’s an interesting argument from Camille Paglia why women should NOT vote for Miss Hillary…

Hillary’s voter base consists of middle-aged to elderly white women who identify with her caustic, stubborn, bulldog resilience. Humiliated and upstaged by her philandering husband, Hillary is the champion of an army of women who were stymied, betrayed or outmanoeuvred by men. Over the past year, whenever her cowed male opponents mildly rebutted Hillary in debate, her campaign jumped into über-feminist mode: male bullies, they screeched, "ganging up" on a helpless damsel.

 

Losing ground with other core groups – notably her own cohort of upper-middle-class, baby-boom career woman – Hillary played the gender card to the max. When polling showed she had seemed too harsh to the caucus-goers of Iowa, she rolled out teary eyes for New Hampshire, which handed her a primary victory. Hillary will scratch, claw, and morph through every gender trick if it rakes in votes.

Make sure you read the rest of this as it is a fair enough critique of Hillary Clinton but then again Paglia supports Obama and HIS candidature is every bit as problematical than Clinton’s. She’s a bit quiet about that!

  1. The attempt by Clinton at times to appeal to a certain type of voter doesn’t mean that it the sole basis of her support. In any event, she presumed support that she isn’t getting.

  2. I wouldn’t mind at all voting for a bulldoggish, stubborn, resilient woman – even if she sadly lacks feminine charm and is betrayed and outmanoeuvred by her husband – if said woman advocated less government.

    But, Hillary advocates bigger and "better" socialist government.

    Also, she lies… which never leads to any good.

    Is this directed at me? If so, don’t pick a fight with me. If not, who are you talking about?

  4. Mahons,

    To quote myself from THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST JUSTICE? on Saturday, February 16, 2008 at 06:28PM:

    There’s you told off then. Cheeky monkey.

    I hope you’re happy, now that I’ve punished you just as I did Colm!

  5. I don’t know what bothers me more..being called a liar or being put in the same basket as Typhoo. 🙂 (just kidding) ..oh well, constant exposure to atheism and socialism gives me a headache..I think i’ll go out for coffee.

  6. I see the men have armed themselves with pointy sticks today.

    When they take another run at you, just step to the side Patty, and then stick your foot out…

  7. Patty,

    "oh well, constant exposure to atheism and socialism gives me a headache..I think i’ll go out for coffee."

    Constant exposure to atheism? Wtf?

    It’s more likely a caffeine headache.

  8. It’s more likely a caffeine headache.

    americans dont drink coffee. they think they do, but they dont.

    the headache is a result of the inaudible groan of millions of coffee beans objecting to being over-roasted.

  9. Alan: Willful ignorance as a worldview becomes mendacity, no?

    Patty: I have previously placed you on notice that when you made foolish comments, I would point them out as, well, foolish.

  10. "americans dont drink coffee. they think they do, but they dont"

    DT, so true – If it’s not overroasted its weak. They brand it and export it well, its called Starbucks 🙂

  11. Daphne: Their taste buds are destroyed by massive consumption of piss flavored tea, or they would know what real coffee means.

  12. Alison & DT – y’all must be talking about effete coffee snobs. At my house you get Folger’s, if I pick up coffee it’s from Dunkin Donuts – yum!

  13. Mahons are you getting my mail? Hell, is anybody getting my mail? My box is empty, and it shouldn’t be!! I hate having an empty box.

    Yeah, tea is only good iced! Unless you have a sore throat, then you have to load it up with honey & hooch.

  14. Daphne: The mouth-breathing cretins who serve my office’s entire network brought down the house over much of the weekend. You messages may have gone astray. I will keep on the lookout and I will look into that project you mentioned.

    Goodnight Alison.

  15. Mahons: "I have previously placed you on notice.."

    You should know by now that you can’t put me "on notice." Unabashed, unreflective, ill-informed liberals can’t put Conservatives "on notice"….but, don’t despair…You can (and do) give me a headache.

  16. Patty,

    "You should know by now that you can’t put me "on notice." Unabashed, unreflective, ill-informed liberals can’t put Conservatives "on notice""

    Oh ye of little faith! While at times it may seem like it takes a miracle to convey the simplest of information to conservatives, studies with chimps show that it can be done with the aid of pictures.
