FITH watch: Violence against women edition

Robert Paul Reyes:

Hillary Clinton is the pinata of politics, she's such a despicable creature that nobody bats an eye when she's ridiculed, criticized or condemned. This is not a perfect analogy, a pinata is a brightly-colored paper container filled with sweets and/or toys and Hillary is a dour and bitter woman filled with arrogance, spite, jealousy and all manner of evil.

A pinata does nothing to deserve its horrible fate; we can't help but feel a tinge of sorrow when we see its shattered remains. But Hillary is so evil that most folks figure she had it coming when pundits and comics tear her apart.

Hillary's days in the national spotlight are numbered; soon even she will accept reality and quit the race. What a horrible prospect, we need a pinata that we can beat without feeling guilt or facing the reproach of others....

Hillary please don't drop out of the race, a legion of pundits, reporters, comics and regular folks need you. You are our beloved pinata and we want to continue beating on you until there's nothing left.

Ugh, the toxicity of his brain -- declare it a superfund site. Move along, folks, there's nothing here to see.

... New Statesman article that said something to the effect that America was going through a collective misogynistic hysteria regarding Sen. Clinton similar to McCarthyism and various other mass "scares" that have occurred throughout our history. Win or lose, one thing I do know is that years from now the media coverage of Sen. Clinton and behavior of certain public figures will be regarded with a mix of wonderment and the deepest sort of social shame and embarrassment. Many otherwise, great figures (male and female) in both media and politics have left a permanent record that will tarnish whatever legacies they manage to leave behind. What will be rather interesting is watching the rewriting of history and the rush by those same figures/offenders to point the blame elsewhere and try to create a single McCarthy-like figure or figures that they'll allege, "were really behind it all."

But that little piece of CDS porn was a little more than I bargained for.

Reminded me of LGF.

Good night and good riddance!

The deranged hatred of Hillary Clinton has been manufactured by David Axelrove in much the same way he did so for Deval Patrick against Kerry Healy (also a female).
By the time Axelrove was finished with Healy, she too was reduced to a loathsome characterful that the masses thought deserved to be beaten with a stick.
Now, if Axelrove is capable of doing the same thing to the much loved and respected John McCain, you know you've just stepped into the Twilight Zone.

That would be interesting. Makes things seem a lot more cold-blooded and systematic, eh?

As I desperately didn't want another GOP governor, I wasn't too favorably inclined toward Healy, who came across as just another power-to-the-powerful Repub. I listened to a couple of speeches from her, and I knew she was not going to become the second Repub I ever voted for (I prefered Bill Weld over Reagan Democrat John Silber).

In the primary, I much preferred Chris Gabrieli, who came across as a capable technocrat. But, then again, I'm a racist. Remarkably, though, I did vote for Deval Patrick -- did I ever have to live that down at my Klan meetings!

I am curious now, about whether the Axelrod squad did do any of their sharp elbows stuff on Healy. Might be a predictor about how they'd face off with McCain.

I'm not sure if they only open the whoop-ass on fellow Dems like Alice Palmer, Blair Hull, and Hillary....
