MoDo To Hillary: "This Is A Man's Livelihood You're Destroying"
Before you email with heavy sighs, telling me to ignore Maureen Freakin' Dowd... I know. I know. The Queen of the Stale Metaphor has always loved sticking it to the women... and to the men she defines as way too girlie for prime time...
And didn't MoDo call Obama "Legally Blonde" in 2007? Of course, she did.
But this new column reminds me of my years as a teacher, specifically the day when 8 (Count 'Em! 8!) teenage girls complained to the high school principal that a coach had kissed them on the lips, manhandled their butts, and clutched their breasts... and called it "coaching."
Each and every one of them heard these words: "Be careful. This is a man's livelihood you're destroying here."
Stop me if this MoDo column snippet doesn't remind you of a similar scenario in your own memory file:
Hillary feels no guilt about encouraging her supporters to mess up Obama’s big moment, thus undermining his odds of beating John McCain and improving her odds of being the nominee in 2012.
She’s obviously relishing Hillaryworld’s plans to have multiple rallies in Denver, to take out TV and print ads and to hold up signs in the hall that read “Denounce Nobama’s Coronation.”
In a video of a closed California fund-raiser on July 31 that surfaced on YouTube, Hillary was clearly receptive to having her name put in nomination and a roll-call vote.
She said she thought it would be good for party unity if her gals felt “that their voices are heard.” But that’s disingenuous. Hillary was the one who raised the roll-call idea at the end of May with Democrats, who were urging her to face the math. She said she wanted it for Chelsea, oblivious to how such a vote would dim Obama’s star turn.
Hillary's supposed to sit down and shut up?
Hillary's supposed to stand up for the less-qualified candidate?
Hillary doesn't deserve the same roll call votes as Teddy Kennedy and every other male candidate in party history?
I suspect that MoDo wrote this piece of crap in order to fan the flames of party disunity, thereby creating future column inches of "Dem campaign turmoil" for herself. And an Obama victory is the last thing on her mind today.
Now, you can sigh.
Number of days since Donna Brazile promised to leave the party if superdelegates decided the Dem nominee:
Donna has known for a long time now that superdelegates would be necessary for any Dem candidate to win the nomination this year. Ask Donna when she intends to keep her promise.
Don't hold your breath awaiting a reply.
Here's Donna now...
