New pro-Hillary spin: Obama’s using sexist code words

posted at 3:47 pm on February 16, 2008 by Allahpundit

Fantastically stupid, but fun to see the Healer of Mankind stand accused of thoughtcrime. Plus, anything that helps our “girl” at this point is all to the good.

Exit question: Who was the last misogynist with the power to make women swoon from the stage? John Lennon, maybe? Click the image to watch.

…Seriously, Senator Hillary Clinton is a woman running for president. Not some emotional menopausal diva popping pills because she’s depressed she broke a nail.”

“Claws”…”feeling down”…I find it hard to envision Obama using the same language if he were facing, say, former Sen. John Edwards, D-NC…

The Klinton Kamp is getting pretty touchy (can I say that without being sued?).

Lennon is mysogynist? He gave Yoko half the cuts on Double Fantasy. Seems he loved that woman more than the ears of his audience.

WOW. Is it me or is there something up?

KBird on February 16, 2008 at 3:56 PM

Wow, the Clintonistas are getting more desperate every day. This is pathetic.

infidel65 on February 16, 2008 at 3:58 PM

I think the feminists are seeing their dream of a female president go down the drain and are getting desperate.

Let’s be honest here, all these females want to do is drink from the holy grail aka Obama’s water bottle.

It’s getting a little personal and, very frankly, you know how deeply we interpreted every comment to look for some sort of racial motivation before South Carolina. A lot of people said it was there. But, you know, when you start describing a female candidate as being ‘down’ and ‘striking back,’ I don’t know, that’s a little edgy, don’t you think?”

I have to agree on one thing. Before South Carolina, every comment was searched for any kind of racial reference in any way, shape, or form.

Fom the ABCnews site:

“Claws”…”feeling down”…I find it hard to envision Obama using the same language if he were facing, say, former Sen. John Edwards, D-NC.

But what do you think?

Well actually, I could see him using that sort of language about Edwards.
And it would be a more apt description.

PC run amuk… Nora & Andrea suffer from chronic diarrhea of the mouth. They just can’t help themselves. There is no “news” to report, so the need to manufacture it.

If I were a woman, I would be insulted. Alas, I am a man; therefore I am mildly amused.

Opps! Was that a sexist remark?

B-b-b-but, don’tcha’ see?

It’s in the Muslim race genes…They just can’t help themselves…Misogeny and woman hatin’ is in the blood…Dude.

Can’t say, they weren’t warned

franksalterego on February 16, 2008 at 4:25 PM

If I have a choice between Hillary and Obama, I take Hillary 10 out of 10. Any conservatives thinks that Obama is less liberal then Hillary is dead wrong.

The worst thing that can happen to this nation is Obama becoming President. He is the most power hungry politician that came in a long time.

jdun on February 16, 2008 at 4:26 PM

If Hillary’s ads here in Texas are all the firepower her troup can come up with she is done. That ad on Bryan’s post is horrible. Touchy, feely, hugs and kisses might go over in Boston but not here. Claiming the victim card is about as stupid as it comes. Slap iron Hillary….or your future autobiography is gonna be a worst seller.

Too bad these people don’t have any issues to debate, other than who’s PC and who’s not.

Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot–
And whether pigs have wings.”

This is delicious. A Democratic victimology sludgefest. (Stench warfare?) Talk about being hoisted by your own petard.

Let me guess: Are Obama’s code words “Juanita,” “Jennifer,” “Monica,” and “enabler”?

Too bad Hillary isn’t running against Biden, then we could have “sex scandals” vs. “text scandals.”

Dr. Charles G. Waugh on February 16, 2008 at 4:40 PM

Let me see if I have this straight. According to MSNBC co-idiots O’Donnell and Mitchell, a woman running for president can only be criticized in certain ways. Although the parameters of permissible criticism have yet to be defined, it seems clear that any criticism which suggests weakness, cattiness, or instability is strictly forbidden. I would venture to guess that suggestions of naivete are similarly out of bounds.

This reminds me a little of how, during HRC’s last campaign for public office, male candidates were not allowed to approach her during debates.

And the cause of female equality marches on….

Obama does tend to look arrogant when he deigns to respond to criticism. If he wins the nomination, he’ll have to guard against looking like he’s condescending to an opponent with nearly a lifetime’s worth of greater accomplishments and experiences.

Remember his “you’re likeable enough” cut at Hillary during Democratic Debate #142? Often it’s the tone of voice or his body language. He literally tends to look down when making remarks of that type – also when he made the “periodically” response that ignited this little imbroglio. If you caught him addressing skepticism aimed at Obamamania, it was the same thing: “I can’t help it if I give a good speech.” His team’s response to Hillary’s familiarly framed debate-ducking Wisconsin ads was also condescending, as though he was too good to waste his time with another debate just for Wisconsinites, when everyone knows the truth: He’s got more money and more momentum and doesn’t want to help her out.

He also has a routine he does about Republicans supporting him – whom he calls “Obamacans.” He describes them furtively revealing their partisan affiliations to him, whispering as though afraid of being recognized. He doesn’t seem to realize how demeaning the shtick is to all concerned. What are they supposed to be afraid of? Of his supporters? As the campaign wears on, his personality and his speechifying wear thin, and, most of all, as his views and his history on a range of issues become better known, he might have more not less difficulty finding any Obamacans.

He knows how to make the noises of respect for his opponents, and his speeches have been full of claims about his willingness to listen to competing points of view, but he’s not very convincing when it comes to acknowledging that there might be anything to their perspectives.

Once the air starts coming out of his balloon – and there certainly have been a lot of pin-pricks aimed at it of late – he may have a lot of difficulty blowing it back up again.

I don’t think the rightwing conventional wisdom that Hillary is a weaker general election candidate is inarguable – especially a Hillary who’s fought her way back from near-death. Of course we’ll never know which one would really have done better. I’d still much rather take the risk on Hillary than Obama.

Pro-Clinton blogger Taylor Marsh writes that words like this, in her view, indicate “a way of thinking about women. A way of demeaning women in power; even saying we’re not up to the job. Seriously, Senator Hillary Clinton is a woman running for president. Not some emotional menopausal diva popping pills because she’s depressed she broke a nail.”

Heh, wow…just wow.

Hillary Clinton’s Lesbian friends should stop rolling their cigarettes up in their shirt sleeves and let their hair grow a little longer and we probably wouldn’t notice!!!

DfDeportation on February 16, 2008 at 4:56 PM

What is hilarious about this whole thing is that less than a year ago, you have to think that the Clinton Camp didn’t even give this skinny young black junior Senator from Illinois even a passing thought as they were preparing for their “triumphant campaign to return to the White House”.

Now the skinny young black junior Senator from Illinois is leaving the Clintons coughing in his dust and they are now rapidly seeing their “triumphant campaign to return to the White House” turn into a question in a future political edition of Trivial Pursuit!

It’s obvious why people are fainting, it’s all that hot air coming from his empty rhetoric.

Conservatives R Us on February 16, 2008 at 4:59 PM

Here’s the thing, I agree with most of the criticism towards Obama and all and I certainly disagree with him on practically every single issue on the table but, he comes off so sincere. My dad commented on it and his words really cemented it for me, he’s on the wrong side of the street but he seems pretty honest and intelligent. Maybe if put into the place of the president where he’d get to a face-to-face meeting with the facts he would be able to differentiate between political rhetoric and world fact. Maybe?

Still not voting for him.

DeathtotheSwiss on February 16, 2008 at 5:16 PM

Sad that the democrats appling for the world’s most powerful job best qualifications are how well they can represent how they are having their feeling hurt. Bet these operations will bring the world to it’s knees.

jukin on February 16, 2008 at 5:19 PM

Y’know, hopefully this could get ugly.

Not just garden-variety ugly but really, really, really nasty.

It’s been said by many before but while here on the right we’ve got our problems, at least our differences are about issues.

There’s absolutely nothing there on the left but identity.

Not. One. Damn. Thing.

These things have a way of gaining a critical mass and spinning way out of control.

Go ahead and call me a hope-monger, but maybe, just maybe, they’ll rip each other into tiny little pieces, and a crowd will finally gather and look and see that there’s no substance to the pieces at all.

OneGyT on February 16, 2008 at 7:36 PM

The same 18 people that actually believe that two people fainted within two minutes of each other at a recent Hillary campaign stop will fall for this.

Hillary believes that people are stupid.

Sure, people are stupid…but they’re not this stupid.

Beyond Pathetic.

Dorvillian on February 16, 2008 at 7:53 PM

CK MacLeod,
I’m glad to see your comments about Obama’s arrogance. I have to agree with you completely. It’s something I’ve noticed over and over again with him..that “looking down his nose” sort of thing. You explained it well.

serpentineshel on February 16, 2008 at 8:28 PM

Hillary is a tough, calculating, self-serving b*tch.

Obama is a lightweight airhead.

Always go with the b*tch over the airhead is a fight.

I have a couple of theories on these faintings.

Tell me which one is more likely:

1) Every once in a while an Obama cultie has a “moment of clarity” and sees the void beyong the endless platitudes of “hope” and “change”.

Unable to cope with the infinite nothingness of Obama’s core policy, they faint only to wake up and remember nothing.

2) These faintings are staged, Remember – unlike Hillary, Obama can’t cry tears to show how much he “cares”. That would be unmanly. Instead he shows he cares by endlessly calling for paramedics.
