Awesomely awesome: NOW NYS calls Teddy’s endorsement of Obama “the ultimate betrayal”; Update: “Psychological gang bang”?

So packed with identity politics irony I’m almost misty over it. After weeks of hand-wringing by the commentariat over the race card, here comes the gender card taped to the end of a two-by-four and delivered upside Teddy’s head. The only thing missing is the magic phrase “Mary Jo,” and reading it you wonder if they didn’t consider tossing that in there too. Stay strong, sisters.

Women have just experienced the ultimate betrayal. Senator Kennedy’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s opponent in the Democratic presidential primary campaign has really hit women hard. Women have forgiven Kennedy, stuck up for him, stood by him, hushed the fact that he was late in his support of Title IX, the ERA, the Family Leave and Medical Act to name a few…

And now the greatest betrayal! We are repaid with his abandonment! He’s picked the new guy over us. He’s joined the list of progressive white men who can’t or won’t handle the prospect of a woman president who is Hillary Clinton (they will of course say they support a woman president, just not “this” one)…

This latest move by Kennedy, is so telling about the status of and respect for women’s rights, women’s voices, women’s equality, women’s authority and our ability – indeed, our obligation – to promote and earn and deserve and elect, unabashedly, a President that is the first woman after centuries of men who “know what’s best for us.”

Exit question one: On a scale of one to ten, just how ironic is it that the guy who’s campaigning against dynastic politics is being championed by a Kennedy? Exit question two: Why does Teddy hate women?

Update: Dude.

In short, gang raping of women is commonplace in our culture both physically and metaphorically.

This past week, we witnessed just such a phenomenon involving men who are afraid of a powerful woman. Hillary Clinton, in her quest for her Presidential nomination, has in fact endured infantile taunting and wildly inappropriate commentary. Indeed we have witnessed almost comical attacks by John Edwards who in turn sided with Barak Obama as both snickered at Clinton’s “breakdown,” which consisted of a very short dewy-eyed moment. Now John Kerry, who should certainly know better after his own “swiftboating,” has joined the playground gang…

Think about the legacy we’ll leave behind when we support Hillary Clinton for President of the United States. Let’s put a stop to the psychological “gang banging” of women and girls. Let’s stand up and be counted by way of the hard-won votes we can now cast!

Is that equality? Anybody? What about the baby’s “right to choose?” Just askin’.

I guess in this instance, the man chose, and the NAGS are PO’d.

Girls, Girls, this is Ted Kennedy of whom you speak.

Try to put yourself inside Teddy’s brain. He did not pick the new metro-man over you. He picked metro-bama over Hillary. If Teddy asked metro-bama to ride with him to Chappaquidick, metro-Bama would probably say yes, especially if Teddy told metro-Bama he would show him Camelot.

If Teddy asked Hillary we all know she would clock him.

This is a no-brainer which makes it an easy choice for Ted

Forgive me for skipping to the end here, but did this phrase give anyone pause? Commonplace?

“In short” apparently means, “Without any evidence whatsoever but to help my point.”

What a freaking lunatic. This is just too much…they are basically a sexist organization to begin with!

The Kennedy’s like the Clintons, brook no perceived insults without revenge. You are watching this in action.

As Rush told the feminists today-

Put some ice on it.

democrats have always accused republicans of being racist and or chauvinist. now the the dems have a choice either be a racist or a chauvnist. I personnaly can’t stand Ted Kennedy,s policies. But it seems to me NO MATTER WHO HE endorses he is at least 50% wrong. If obama then chavinist
if clinton then a racist. This is why the dems just don’t get it . they sling these terms around daily. I am just surprised that it has taken this long to come back and haunt them.

I think Rush is correct when he says that this election is the last hope for the ’60’s liberals. When are they going to get it? The ’60’s were great, but the ’60’s are over. In fact, they lasted longer than they ever should have, and ended just about when John Lennon was killed in 1980. I forgot NOW was still out there. With each passing year, their relevance fades further into history. Just my $0.02.
