Obamanation: Change You Can Choke On
Well, is the latest hate-fest about whether or not Hillary is the Assasination Anti Christ done yet? Is the evil bitch gone yet? Did America the beautiful send enough hate to Hillary to make her quit yet?
In the words of New York Daily News columnist and frequent CNN guest, Michael Goodwin: "We have seen an x-ray of a very dark soul. One consumed by raw ambition to where the possible assassination of an opponent is something to ponder in a strategic way. Otherwise, why is murder on her mind?"
There are more and more days when the insane tabloid adolescent state of this nation is too mortifying to watch. I suppose we've never been all that mature, but the problem does not appear to be getting any better. Maybe a nation can't hate a president for some 7 1/2 years without falling into deep deep mental derangement. That may be, but what bothers me most is that the male dominated Obama Media hate and the male dominated ‘progressive’ Obama Netroots hate is now aimed squarely at women.
I know the popular culture meme says that there is no difference in a politics led by men and a politics led by women, but, um, how do we know? The dire absence of women in positions of power leads to a politics that views the world with a grossly skewed male view. You know, like the skewed violently-macho-male movies at Blockbuster. And like the hopelessly skewed male views on cable news channels where panels of all male and mostly male pundits sit around and seriously discuss important questions like whether or not Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton is indeed a white bitch.
When we notice the problem in fraternities, football teams, and military academies, it's because the macho culture has led to a crime like gang rape. These days, the Obama News Network and the Obama blogs look just like the Men's Daily News. Every week is Hate the White Bitch Week, and, yes, it looks a whole lot like gang rape.
What would happen if a panel of female pundits sat around on prime time discussing the important question of whether or not Barack Obama is a black prick? If women weren't tokens in government, tokens in media, etc., if we had as many female pundits as we do male ones, who knows? The women might sit around discussing the possibility that we’ve already had enough pricks in the White House.
"What had begun as a movement to free all black people from racist oppression became a movement with its primary goal the establishment of black male patriarchy."
"Bitch is the New Black!" - t-shirts, bumper stickers, buttons, etc.
