LOOKING LIKE A HAGGARD JON VOIGHT, CRANKY CLINTON SHOWED UP TONIGHT AT A CHILDREN'S DEFENSE FUND GALA/FUNDRAISER.
CRANKY PROVED SHE MEANT "NEVER GIVE UP" AS THE EVENING CAME TO AN END AND SHE DEMANDED HER CUT.
TOLD THE FUNDRAISER WAS FOR CHARITY, CRANKY BARKED, "I AM THE F**KING CLINTON FOUNDATION! HAND IT OVER!"
SHE WAS ESCORTED ABOUT BY SECURITY AND, LATER, SMOKING A BENSON & HEDGES IN THE PARKING LOT, CRANKY EXPLAINED, "IT'S MY FAULT. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN TO GET THE MONEY UP FRONT. IT'S THE FIRST THING ANY PROSTITUTE LEARNS."
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Starting with the US election so many of us were tired of before it happened and remain tired of now. There are real issues effecting lives right now and it's must be so very nice to be an American citizen unconcerned with the wars your government is currently actively carrying out.
The ridiculous Angelina Chapin (HUFFINGTON POST) tries to pretend she's a feminist (she's not) and ties criticism of War Hawk, corporatist and scandal magnet Hillary Clinton to sexism:
I think every liberal woman has broken down at some point in the past week. For me, it was at 2 a.m. on Wednesday when I called my boyfriend and wept.
If you think every liberal woman cried, then you're not only a bad columnist, you live in a tiny and terrifying bubble.
As Demi Moore said THE BUTCHER'S WIFE, "Well you ought to get out more."
Angelina goes on to whine that Hillary has "30 years of political experience."
No, she has 12 years -- she was a US senator for 8, she was Secretary of State for 12. First Lady is not political experience. Especially now that women have opportunities, we no longer need to pretend that 'woman behind the man' is experience.
And non-feminist Hillary sneered so at First Lady that she insisted she would give Bill things to do as First Spouse so that he wouldn't have to plan dinners, etc. In other words, Hillary said, "That's women's work." And only a few of us feminists took the time to call her out on it.
She takes Thomas Frank to task for calling Hillary a "party hack." I'm no fan of Thomas Franks (I hope I've been fair to him but I'm not a fan of his). But Thomas Frank's criticism of Hillary did not begin today, this month or even this year. And it has nothing to do with sexism.
Were Angelina a feminist, she'd grasp that. But she's just another whiner trying to play the woman card to get her way.
She insists that "when you inflict your analysis on a woman who is devastated that Americans just elected a man who considers her subhuman, you are being sexist. Plain and simple."
Angelina, grow the f**k up.
Plain and simple.
Crawl back, crying, to your safe space, try to create the illusion of being in the womb if it helps.
But stop kidding that you're about feminism.
Women want to run for political office (and have and are).
There's no "Oh, but it's a girl so shut up with the criticism."
That's not feminism.
We can handle it.
We get pushed around and pushed down every day. Like many Americans.
And we get back up.
And we pull ourselves together and we go on.
If we want to compete in political races, we can't whine, "Oh, the results hurt my tender little girl bits and feelings so nobody can say anything!!!!"
People can say whatever they want, first of all, in a democracy.
Second of all, you need to grow the hell up and you need to toughen the hell up.
I'm embarrassed, as a feminist, that you chose to publish that crap.
