Eighty Eight Years



It doesn't matter who you are supporting for president or even what you think about the Clintons, you have to be dismayed at the way Hillary Clinton has been treated by the media of this country. Has anyone commented on the thickness of Senator John McCain's ankles. Has anyone mused about Senator Obama's upper arms or called any display of temper "bitchiness"? Vote for anyone you want, but remember this election. It has been eighty eight years since women won the right to vote. If we ever let the media get away with doing this to another woman running for president, we don't deserve to be called a democracy.

Last night Keith Olbermann gave Elton John the bronze for "Worst Person" because Elton commented on American misogyny. Mr. Olbermann in his arrogance mused that Elton was speaking about the voting public. Well wake up Keithy, he was talking about you and your overpaid cohorts who have done everything possible to destroy this woman.

The media - of all people - need to take gender out of the equation and concentrate on qualifications only.

Shame on them all.

Jamie, thank God I don't listen to most of the channels that have these "pundits" jumping all over Hillary. I agree if she were a man they wouldn't be saying the things they say!

BTW I have an award for you at my blog. Come see! :D

Mrs eProf just about threw a book at the tv when KO made Elton John one of the worst persons in the world last night for stating what has become closer and closer to the truth about the msm going after HRC. I used to like KO for his biting commentary on BushCo, but no longer as he has become a paid commercial for Obama. I supported Edwards, as you know, but fair is fair and the bias of the msm toward any man over HRC is awful.

MSNBC spent more than 12 hours today slamming Sen. Clinton. Will they spend 12 hours tomorrow slamming Sen. Obama for calling out of work Pennsylvanians bitter and turning to immigrant hatred, guns and religion to compensate.

I haven't even pulled myself into all this bullcrap. I'll pray...then vote...and continue praying.

I have no room for bashing of any kind.

So many people base their votes on "information" the media provides. That's why so many people can't reasonably answer the question, Why don't you like Ms Clinton?

They can't very well answer, Because *insert talking head here* told me she was *insert irrelevant and possibly erroneous trait harped on by the media here*.

Jamie...
I rarely watch MSNBC now.... actually.... I've turned all of cable news off.... and am much happier....

just take a bit of comfort from the fact that MSNBC is the lowest ranking cable news station..... and I have to think that KO's ratings ain't what they used to be...

Corey said...

Yeah , go after Elton John! What happened to the days when he only went after Bill O.?

Marilyn said...

I have to agree... and I like Obama. I never understood the unreasonable dislike for her. Often nobody can really tell you why, thy just use the B word and that kind of behavior against Obama would lead to general outcry.

Thank you for taking the time to create a blog post on the video "Mad as Hell/Bitch".

The video was created by two grassroots supporters who met online, IndyRobin and GeekLove08. It took 4 weeks to create the video as we were collaborating via e-mail and we had a lot of material to work with. Both of us are fairly new to YouTube-- I started to create videos in February and this was IndyRobin's first video.

We believe that the message of misogyny, as well as the character assassination of Hillary Clinton, by the media is an important one. We are "mad as hell" that television has become what Edward R. Murrow had warned about in 1958 when he said "This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires and lights in a box."

Thanks to people like you, the video has gone "viral" spreading through the internet, and perhaps inspiring people to speak out against the media.

If you and/or your readers have the opportunity, we would appreciate it very much if you could go to the original video post on YouTube and RATE the video, post a COMMENT on the video, and FAVORITE the video. These actions will help the video earn YouTube "honors" which may help further promote the video online. (You can get to the YouTube site for the video by double clicking the video on your blog.)

Thanks again for your post.

P.S. The video is NOT an anti-Obama video, but rather a video against the media bias. However, for those who do support Hillary Clinton, a donation to her campaign, for those who can afford it, would be great. There is a donation link on YouTube. The donation link appears when you click "More info" that appears next to the video information "Added: April 06, 2008". I will also try to post a link here too -- Click to Donate. Thanks.
