Jerome, I applaud you for your fairness on this blog. You have given Hillary hell from time to time (which is as it should be), but don't hesitate to judge Obama on his merits and on the political realities, either. That is a rarity in the progressive blogosphere these days.
Is there a link where I can donate to keep you up and running? I believe in supporting reality-based blogs.
No, just being an arrogant jerk. Arrogant jerkiness knows no color - or are you postulating that African Americans are somehow different, and incapable of being jerks?
Please do enlighten us. Because last I heard, all people of all races are capable of being arrogant or snide or otherwise snotty. It has not in my experience been defined as a solely Caucasian trait.
Unless you are just blowing smoke out your butt and trying to make people feel guilty for criticizing the ineffable one, and equating criticism with racism. There seems to be a lot of that going around, and it is becoming transparently ridiculous.
You cannot see the sexism inherent, just as Shuster can't, and THAT IN ITSELF is the problem.
It is degrading to all women and unprofessional for a national journalist to imply that a woman is "whoring", whether one means she is literally turning tricks or not. It is doubly degrading to imply that a mother is pimping out her daughter. The imagery is sexist.
Bullshit. I started phoning as soon as I saw it, as did MANY other people. It was almost a full day before the Clintons uttered a word. PEOPLE were pissed off. This was a grassroots protest, it did not come from the top.
