Sexist Photo: Obama Speechwriter Gropes Breast of Hillary Cut-out
From the Frat House to the White House
President-elect Barack Obama's chief speechwriter, 27-year-old Jon Favreau gropes the breast of a Hillary Rodham Clinton life-sized cardboard cut-out while his friend makes like he's pouring beer down her throat. Maybe there are also photos of a mock gang-rape.
The above photo and one of Obama's speechwriter dancing with the cut-out of Hillary Rodham Clinton surfaced "on Facebook for about two hours. The photos were quickly taken down."
Was there anyone on Obama's campaign staff who wasn't/isn't a sexist? As I recall, Barack Obama's famous last words on sexism were a smiling, "I'm just messin' with you, man."
