As McCain continues to gain on unqualified Obama (4 points ahead among likely voters or 1 point behind, according to Gallup polls) we are hearing news about what our unDemocratic masters have in store for August.

Sen. Hillary Clinton has agreed to speak on the second night of next month’s Democratic convention, headlining on the 88th anniversary of the day women earned the right to vote, sources say.

Two sources close to Clinton said the former presidential candidate will speak August 26 with all female U.S. senators on stage with her.

“Tuesday night is Hillary night,” said one supporter.

That night is the anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which gave women the right to vote.

We wrote about Women’s Equality Day last August. Further we wrote this on June 12, 2008 in Democrats Prepare To Strike:

Women’s Equality Day will be celebrated on August 26, the second day of the Democratic? National Convention. We need to organize demonstrations on Women’s Equality Day to highlight the misogyny in Big Media and the Democratic Party. We need to, like the civil rights movement, show the misogyny in American society for all to see.

Let’s get the word out. Let’s communicate via our email lists, on blogs and with family and friends. First we need to find out where Women’s Equality Day demonstrations are already being planned. Second we need to organize Women’s Equality Day demonstrations in cities where there are no demonstrations currently planned. We must have a demonstration in Denver.

In this election cycle there was not 1 debate to discuss issues of particular importance to women. Not 1 debate. Hillary was attacked in the most woman hating terms imaginable and the Democratic? leadership stood silent. Obama encouraged the woman-hating attacks. Hillary’s “claws”, Obama said, were out. Mainline women’s groups mostly stood silent. Women leaders such as Brazille and Pelosi and McCaskill, joined in the savaging of Hillary.

In Days Of Shame we wrote:

Obama supporters will try to convince themselves that the polls are turning their way all through the summer. We will convince them on Women’s Equality Day – August 26, that Hillary supporters will NOt vote for Obama in NOvember. We will continue to fight. We will never give up. Hillary is our nominee.

While the Democratic? National Convention is in session, Hillary Clinton supporters will be marching for Women’s Equality and Hillary Clinton – and against Obama and misogyny.

Obama/Dean/Brazile/Pelosi have decided to try to bamboozle Hillary Clinton supporters and women by pretending to care and allowing Hillary Clinton to speak on Women’s Equality Day at their convention.

Women’s Equality Day is an opportunity to demonstrate to all Democrats and to the nation the sexism and misogyny that was exploited by Obama/Dean/Brazile/Pelosi. Sexism and misogyny is a powerful force that has been exploited in this campaign.

In the 1970s, African-American New York Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm claimed that she “had met far more discrimination because I am a woman than because I am black.” Testifying for the ERA, she declared that it “provides a legal basis for attack on the most subtle, most pervasive, and most institutionalized form of prejudice that exists” and “is so widespread that it seems to many persons normal, natural and right.”

Obama/Dean/Brazile/Pelosi will try to fool Hillary supporters and all women into squandering their votes on Obama. But a Hillary speech to the nation on August 25, Women’s Equality Day will give us all renewed energy to make Hillary the Democratic Party nominee. Watching and hearing Hillary Clinton will show the quality of Hillary as the Democratic nominee compared to the unqualifed, sinking in the polls, Obama. We also know that although Obama/Dean/Brazile/Pelosi want to bamboozle women on Women’s Equality Day:

Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.

Yesterday, we featured a nasty video by big time celebrity Obama supporter Ludicris. In the video big time celebrity Obama supporter Ludicris calls Hillary Clinton a “bitch”. We have thus far not heard from “women’s groups” or Dean/Brazile/Pelosi a peep of protest.

Big time celebrity Obama supporter Ludicris reminds us of big time celebrity Obama supporter Bernie Mac. After several nasty jokes by Bernie Mac with Obama listening, Obama took the stage and “funned” about sexism and racism:

“We can’t afford to be divided by race. We can’t afford to be divided by religion, or by region or class. Or by gender. That means, by the way, Bernie you got to clean up your act. This is a family affair. … I’m just messing with you,” Obama said.

“Just messing with you” – Obama. That sums up the unqualified Obama rather neatly. “Just messing with you.”

The McCain campaign is taking Obama’s “messing” seriously. Obama played the race card against Hillary. Now the Obama campaign is playing the race card against McCain. McCain and his strategists are fighting back against the race-baiting Obama:

John McCain’s campaign accused Barack Obama today of playing racial politics a day after the Democratic candidate predicted Republicans would try to scare voters by pointing out “he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

Obama “played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck,” McCain campaign manager Rick Davis said in a statement. He called Obama’s remarks “divisive, negative, shameful and wrong.” [snip]

Obama himself didn’t make clear what distinctions he thinks McCain is likely to raise regarding the presidents on U.S. currency — white men who for the most part were much older than Obama when elected. McCain has not raised Obama’s race as an issue in the campaign; he has said Obama lacks experience.

Obama played the race card against Hillary. Now the Obama campaign is playing the race card against McCain.

Did Obama Accuse McCain of Running a Racist, Xenophobic Campaign? [snip]

Correct me if I’m wrong, but does it not seem as if Obama just said McCain and his campaign — presumably the “they” in this construct — are saying that Obama shouldn’t be elected because he’s a risk because he’s black and has a foreign-sounding name?

The Obama campaign says no, no, no, certainly not, he was talking about his “opponents” in general, writ large, the talk radio hosts and smear artists and such.

Then in Union, Mo., this evening, Obama seemed to specifically accuse McCain and the GOP of peddling racism and xenophobia.

Obama said that “John McCain and the Republicans, they don’t have any new ideas, that’s why they’re spending all their time talking about me. I mean, you haven’t heard a positive thing out of that campaign in … in a month. All they do is try to run me down and you know, you know this in your own life. If somebody doesn’t have anything nice to say about anybody, that means they’ve got some problems of their own. So they know they’ve got no new ideas, they know they’re dredging up all the stale old stuff they’ve been peddling for the last eight, 10 years.

“But, since they don’t have any new ideas the only strategy they’ve got in this election is to try to scare you about me. They’re going to try to say that I’m a risky guy, they’re going to try to say, ‘Well, you know, he’s got a funny name and he doesn’t look like all the presidents on the dollar bills and the five dollar bills and, and they’re going to send out nasty emails.

“And, you know, the latest one they’ve got me in an ad with Paris Hilton,” Obama said, referring to a McCain campaign ad launched today. “You know, never met the woman. But, but, you know, what they’re gonna try to argue is that somehow I’m too risky.”

There’s a lot of racist xenophobic crap out there. But not only has McCain not peddled any of it, he’s condemned it.

Back in February, McCain apologized for some questionable comments made by a local radio host. In April, he condemned the North Carolina Republican Party’s ad featuring images of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

With one possible exception, I’ve never seen McCain or those under his control playing the race card or making fun of Obama’s name — or even mentioning Obama’s full name, for that matter! [snip]

What I have not seen is it come from McCain or his campaign in such a way to merit the language Obama used today. Pretty inflammatory.

Obama took a European Vacation, but his supporters don’t know where he is going. Obama can’t be trusted. Reminds us of another celebrity European vacation, seeing the tourist spots but know knowing where you are going to [Lyrics HERE].

Hillary is, like Ivory soap – The Name You Trust

Obama is Mahogony – Do you know where you are going to?

Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.
