Feeling Up, Feeling Down

College frat boys are the worst. Drunken, ill-behaved, smelly, hairy, horny—how do you women (and some men) stand it?

What’s that?

They’re not college frat boys?

The guy on the left … the one cupping Hillary Clinton’s breast on this cardboard cutout, that would be President-elect Obama’s chief speechwriter, Jon Favreau. He struck this rather intriguing pose at a party, and then, bummer for him, the photo got posted by a pal on Facebook.

Jon, I’m not even going to go after you for this, because it is just too easy. It is shooting fish in a barrel. My 1-month-old kid could look at this picture of you and say, if he could talk yet, “what a total idiot move.”

A Clinton spokesman described the photo as an example of just good-natured fun between former rival camps. The Post quotes Sen. Clinton’s adviser Philippe Reines as saying, quote, “Sen. Clinton is pleased to learn of Jon’s obvious interest in the State Department, and is currently reviewing his application.”

I’m sorry, but this is the same woman who, during the campaign, pointed to example after example of sexism directed at her saying that, quote, “It’s been deeply offensive to millions of women”?

Is this the same woman who pointed out the references to her cleavage or her cackle, the comments by certain pundits and the media?

The same woman who concluded, quote, “the remnants of sexism are alive and well” after someone at a rally shouted out “iron my shirt”?

She made a point of calling people out during the campaign, and for that, she became a hero to millions of women. But now, the campaign is over.

She is joining Team Obama, and, apparently, this photo of her likeness being groped by another key member of Obama’s team doesn’t bother her a bit. Just good-natured fun, or so her spokesman says.

Put another woman in that photo, just an average woman who supported you during the campaign. Have it be her image being degraded by a colleague of hers. Would you be OK with that?

No, she wouldn’t. But she’s okay with this because now Obama owes her even more. The State Department is going to be her private fiefdom over the next four years—probably the price of her support in the campaign. This picture just proves how smart she is—it’s like a big deposit in her political bank account—and how the Left just can’t help itself.

The Left believes by its nature it cannot be racist, sexist, anti-Semitic—anything but warm, loving, and generous. The facts? What are facts compared to feelings?

    It’s all of the tough talk during the campaign that was an act; this is the real Hillary. Remember, we are talking about a woman who would have happily, gaily, gladly played Bonnie to her husband’s Clyde if murder had been necessary, and God knows she was willing to be made a fool of every five minutes just so she could have a route to second-hand power.

    If Hillary Clinton had really believed in doing something for women everywhere, she would have shown her husband up for the narcissistic low-life piece of lying white-trash scum he always has been and always will be.

    Truly this incident proves Hillary Clinton is no feminist and she’s really not even strong. The only way she knows to handle men who ridicule and mock her is by joining in. It’s the act of a sad homely girl who knows that if she stands up for herself, the boys won’t like her and the “fun” will just get worse.

    Very interesting, Carol, and accurate, I think.

    But it’s also interesting how she’s made a career out of such abuse. A good part of her appeal arises out of sympathy: we never like her better than when her husband is caught philandering, or when she’s thoroughly shellacked in a primary.

    It works for her: how many other Wellesley/Yale grads have been lost in the god-forsaken wilderness of Arkansas, only to emerge as Countess Foggy Bottom, in charge of her own foreign policy fiefdom? Not too many, I tell you.

    But it sure is sad, I have to agree.

    And may I just add, “Sarahcuda 2012″
