The Shame Of The Democratic Left, Part I

The misogyny, sexism and gay-bashing by Democrats that occurred in the 2008 election cycle is an open sore that will not heal. The leadership of the Democratic Left increasingly proved itself to be a misogynistic and anti-gay coalition. The words are “progressive”. The actions contradict the words. We know actions speak louder than words.

Ralph Nader in 2004 claimed once again that he is the best presidential candidate on gay rights. But as the gay newspaper from the District of Columbia, the Washington Blade noted:

Nader hasn’t always been so supportive of gay rights issues. In 1996, when Nader was asked by New York Times columnist William Saffire for his views on gay issues, he said he wasn’t going to get into “gonadal politics.”
[snip]

At the time, the comment prompted an open letter from gay Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), criticizing Nader’s remarks.

“Your desire to avoid what you deride as ‘gonadal politics,’ and I think of as the fight for gay and lesbian rights, has been consistent. Having been actively involved in the fight against gay and lesbian bias in Congress since 1981, I cannot remember ever hearing from you on this subject.”

The Democratic Left and the leadership of the party have not abandoned their disdain for “gonadal politics”.

* * *

In the 2008 election cycle the contempt of the Democratic Left for “gonadal politics” was center stage. The “gonads” this year belonged to women.

Hillary Clinton, more than once this past year was said to possess the biggest gonads, far surpassing the shriveled orbs cradled by the male candidates. When a union leader endorsed Hillary Clinton because “I truly believe that that’s going to take an individual that has testicular fortitude.” Hillary responded “I do think I have fortitude. Women can have it as well as men.”

Hillary Clinton was not the only woman this year who carried a big pair filled with testicular fortitude. We recall the courage of Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones and Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee who as African-American leaders faced down their critics while respected Congressman John Lewis became flaccid in the face of opposition.

Another great Congresswoman from an earlier age, also African-American, was Shirley Chisholm. Congresswoman Chisholm, was the first Black woman elected to Congress and the first Black to seek a major party’s nomination for the U.S. presidency.

Shirley Chisholm was a “first” many times. Shirley Chisholm also dared speak the truth.

Shirley Chisholm, who should know, said she was discriminated more on the basis of being a woman than on the basis of being black. Shirley Chisholm was a true Democrat. Shirley Chisholm would not fit in today’s Dimocratic Party.

“I ran because somebody had to do it first. I ran because most people thought the country was not ready for a Black candidate, not ready for a woman candidate. Someday–it was time in 1972 to make that someday come.”

She also knew the challenges of being a woman in politics.

“I’ve always met more discrimination being a woman than being Black,” she said. “When I ran for the Congress, when I ran for president, I met more discrimination as a woman than for being Black. Men are men.”

African-American Congresswoman Chisholm and her eyewitness, first hand experiences were dismissed by the Democratic Left.

Democratic Left male writers such as Hendrik Hertzberg at the New Yorker belittled the struggles of women (not to mention African-American women) in comparison to African-Americans and ignored the testimony of people, women, such as Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm. Hertzberg wrote Competitions among grievances do not ennoble, and both Clinton and Obama strove to avoid one; but it does not belittle the oppressions of gender to suggest that in America the oppressions of race have cut deeper.

The misogyny is so deep and rooted that even writers like Hertzberg, that we long ago respected, are unaware of what they are writing. It does indeed “belittle the oppressions of gender”, and we will add the oppressions of sexual orientations, to so denigrate “gonadal politics”.

After the Thanksgiving holiday we will continue our exploration into the shameful truth about the Democratic Left: the Democratic Left mouths progressive words on gender and sexuality but the Democratic Left is misogynistic and anti-gay.

    Admin : Bravo for your deep understanding of what our political system has become as the fears of the Good Ole Boys has finally been challenged and exposed.The exist in every walk of life and have demeaned women for too long and we men that have been fortunate to have looked upon their wives and daughters as equal partners in our fight to provide respect and acknowledge that they work just as hard for less money and we must provide a level working and playing field.I am certain that Hillary will be the best SoS this country has ever had and the world is looking forward to her presence in the role of peacemaker and healer of the fractured relationships that have been generated by 8 yrs of W and more of the same by least qualified unknown that is about to assume the office of CiC.

    I recall the words of a popular song of the 20′s by the popular French singer Maurice Chevalier “Thank God For Women “.

    By ABM90 Amen

  • Paula

    On the last thread, JanH speculated about Biden being upset that Hillary’s getting SoS. I’m pretty sure he’s fine with it; he likes and respects her quite a bit. It’s Kerry and Judas who are left crying in their beers, lol.

  • freckles

    wbb — back to your question. I would have to check my sent e-mails to remember whether it was the prez or the chairman or whatever of NBC. I’ll look it up when I get back tonight. I only remember that I spoke to him.

    I think I may have called him very early and surprisingly got straight through — he seemed to have just got there that morning and I think was expecting somebody else. He also never asked who I was so I think he thought I was somebody else. At any rate I started by telling him he had to act — and he sort of begging me to give Imus — yup that’s who it was, Don Imus — a second chance. I explained why that wasn’t going to work and must have convinced him along with NBC reporters and producers because word came soon after that it was a full firing. I think his name was Steve but, as you can see, I wouldn’t put much stock in that memory. Anything else you wanted to know?

  • CountTheVotes

    this is kind of funny if it weren’t so sadly true, even Al Qaeda complaining about pro-BO media bias:

    It’s on Huffpost. i will not link.

    Counterterrorism Blog reports that Al Qaeda isn’t pleased with the media reaction to its anti-Obama missive:

    Global reactions to Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri’s controversial condemnation of U.S. President-Elect Barack Obama as a “House Slave” (or, alternatively, “House Negro”) have begun to pour in — including via the top jihad web forums used by Al-Qaida to disseminate its propaganda. Though hardcore Al-Qaida supporters have predictably dismissed any criticism of Dr. al-Zawahiri and are fiercely backing his choice of words, there is a rather ironic (if not entirely unfamiliar) twist to this issue. After observing international press reporting on the incident, these same supporters are now bitterly attacking the media for its “unfair” pro-Obama bias and for deliberately “confusing” the meaning of al-Zawahiri’s message.

    Wbboei: You jolted my memory with the words of a long dormant quotation you recited.I cannot remember the author or in what point of my life I first heard or read that quotation.Am I correct
    “Be there a man with soul so dead who never to himself has said
    this is my own my native land”. Can BO honestly repeat those words to the American people ?

    By ABM90. Perhaps it explains why he is in such a hurry to move into the Oval Office before Jan 20.Truth will out!!!

    You sure have a way with words, admin. HTD!
    ‘Hillary Clinton, more than once this past year was said to possess the biggest gonads, far surpassing the shriveled orbs cradled by the male candidates.”

    On another note, besides the attacks in India today, the threat of suicide bombers at Penn Station, anyone else hear about this? I was just making plans to do the 6 hour RT to visit my mom, who i haven’t seen in 2 years coz i couldn’t travel, and now I’m afraid to go through Penn Station! :shock:

    20,000 Muslims Attack a Church in Cairo, Trapping a Thousand Christian Worshippers Inside

    By Michael Ireland
    Chief Correspondent, ASSIST News Service

    CAIRO, EGYPT (ANS) — One thousand Christians were today trapped inside the Coptic Orthodox Church of the Virgin Mary in West Ain Shams, Cairo, after more than twenty thousand Muslims attacked them with stones and butane gas cylinders. The Church’s priest, Father Antonious, said the situation is “extremely dangerous.”

    Thank you, bluegirl, you too! :-)

    Admin – you hit the nail on the head with your condemnation of the misogyny exhibited by people like Rick Hertzberg who used to be reasoned and utterly dependable. Now he sadly exemplifies the decline of the New Yorker, the NY Times and the NY Review of Books – all of whom gulped down the koolaid and just can’t find anything the matter with Precious. After many long years of subscribing to all of these we have just canceled our subscriptions because we can’t stand to read any more of the tendentious and one sided glop they consider journalism or informed opinion. Our organized media are locked in to a ridiculous adoration of a clown who now insists on posing behind a lectern emblazoned with “Office of the President Elect”. It is a grotesque show of self obsession which seems to attract formerly reasonable people and only demonstrates the serious level of cult fanaticism which has taken over our press. We need desperately to do something to counter this dreadful slant — a press of our own with contributions from the UK and others!

    ABM90: he could repeat them but not honestly. If he did repeat them then it would be logical to ask him for proof of where he was born.

    I associate that quotation with Sir Walter Scott and a story called A Man Without A Country, but I am not sure that is right.

    Happy Thanksgiving all.

    Yes, misogynistic or Sexism, are what are unforgivable in this campaign. Had this all happened without the Sexism, a true popular win, and a fair convention, we would not be here talking. Yes, the far left expect women to just get over it, and fold in. Obviously they think women cannot understand what went down here, and cannot think or defie them. After all these women and women’s group will play along, or we will teach them a lesson. DEMOCRATIC MEN THINK THEY SHOULD LEAD, JUST LIKE REPBULICAN MEN DO.

    I know this blog will be watching carefully what happens to Gov Sarah Palin.

    Admin, thanks for mentioning Shirley Chisholm who became the first AA woman elected to Congress in ’68, and in ’72 she was the first AA candidate for POTUS .
    Not enough respect is paid this woman – she was a woman of character and a true original in many ways – besides being most admirably gutsy! or ballsy … I’ve never been comfortable with complimenting women by attributing male body parts to them …as if the highest praise for them is to proclaim them more like men.

    Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! I am thankful for Big Pink!– very!

  • bluegirl

    Thanks Paula.

  • confloyd

    wbboei, Just wanted to get your take on the full supreme court hearing that is scheduled for Dec. 5th on the Donofrio case. I know that you thought it was a weak case, but now the SC’s are giving it a full court hearing. The blogs like td and others are going crazy with it and msm reported on it today and a question was asked to whitehouse press secretary if he knew anything about it. It sounds like legs. I don’t know, but I agree with most of the other bloggers that there in something very senister going on with Ob ama and how he came to power. You know, most of us are really scared!

  • wbboei

    Then they have agreed to hear the case under a writ of certiori? Wow. The chances that the court would accept the writ are infinitesmal. That is interesting–and I dont mean that to sound like a cliche. If I were sitting on the Supreme Court (we would all be in trouble–no scratch that) . . . . if I were sitting on the Supreme Court, I would tell Barry you can fail to produce a birth certificate proving you were born in the US, or you can be President but you cant do both.

  • wbboei

    Confloyd I am not sure the sun will rise tommorrow, not sure it will snow this winter, not sure I will be on this earth 10 years from now, not sure I could break 80 at the Woodlands, not sure of hardly anything. But there is one thing I am 100% sure of without knowing hardly any of the particulars (except for he Soros connection and who he met with–that is documneted) and that is that Obama is somebodys puppet. Too many missing chapters, too many blind allies, too many things that just dont add up. The money behind him is staggering. Whoever they are they intend to buy our democracy.

  • confloyd

    wbboei, I agree with you, they are or they already have bought it, my question is, what are they going to do with it??? Why is Hillary knee deep in it and its pretty freaking scary??

  • confloyd

    wbboei, I also found this very unusual. I read that Bush called Bill C. before calling Obama to congradulate him on his election. I find that so unusual, why call Bill C. first, there are so many pieces to the puzzle and I think the Kennedy’s are in it knee deep.

  • ABM90

    wbboei:You have now inspired me to srart guiding my overloaded memory and try to recall some of the great authors and their wisdom with word.This sounds a little strange but Old English Literature was one of my favorite class.At age 16 I was more focused on repairing my old 1927 model T Ford coupe with a rumble seat that cost me $20,a beat up old bike and an ageless 22cal. single shot rifle with no sights.Along comes this young smart and very motivating teacher and asked for the opportunity to widen my world with some culture.Well friend it worked and to this day 76 years later I still have those pleasantries stored in my high mileage brain..With the present scenario suddenly imposed on us to select a new leader an O.Henry story comes to mind.”The Commutation Chop House”.
    A perfect stranger comes to town,pays shills to pass out free tickets to a new eating place he is about to open.People read and listen then on opening day they are treated to the best meal they have ever had.The inn is suddenly the most popular place and people wait in long lines to buy tickets.This mystery man then comes up with a plan to sell tickets in advance and eliminate the congestion that occurs when he feeds the flock.A great deal a one day sale at reduced prices.This culinary Messiah took in a fortune in sales valid for the start of the next week.Surprise when the day of the opening arrives the crowed gathers at the site but the place is bare.Gone vanished and their hard earned money with him. Sound Familiar you Gourmet Politicians? Yes this scenario has been repeated over and over by fast talking con artists since man appeared on earth. Before we invest we must first Vett and in this case we have closed our eyes covered our ears and swallow the bait,HOPE and CHANGE.

    The idea is free for anyone to run with. My vision is at least 3-5 new links each day. Ideally enough vigilantes who can be registered with password so no bots can send in garbage. (If someone wants to be a ‘slush pile editor’ and look at links submitted by unregistered people, fine.)

    If enough ‘vigilaltes’ are intrested, to provide a steady stream of links, I’ll look into some mechanisms, unless someone more techy turns up.

  • pm317

    That Tulsatoday article is perhaps the most reasonable that I have read so far on the BC issue. But even she starts speculating at the end and goes off the rails. What will the SC do at this point? Can you imagine what it will be like if they went ahead and asked for his BC and it turned out to be a problem? Or does he have a fake BC already to go. My husband says that Obama does not want to cave in and produce his BC (even if it is legit) because it does not look presidential — nobody else is asked to do that, why him? My hunch is at this point it will be the biggest cover-up and we’ll never know the truth. But can SC be afraid to generate a constitutional crisis and therefore, help in covering it up? (what a question!)

    wbboei: I googled ‘Man without a country” and enjoyed once again a trip into my past memories.The story was written by a
    Great writer Edward Everett Hale and published in 1863.A fictional account of the trial and punishment and the sentece of Naval Lt.Phillip Nolan.I am enclosing the complete words of the authors quote.

    ” Breaths there there a man with soul so dead
    Who never to himself hath said
    This is my own my native land
    Whose heart hath never within him burned
    At home his footsteps he hath never turned
    From wandering on a foreign strand
    If such there breath go mark him well
    For him no minstrel raptures swell
    High thoughhis titles proud his name
    Boundless his wealth as a wish can claim
    Despite these titles power and pelf
    The wretch concentered all in self.

    What a striking picture of Barack Hussein Obama painted

    BY ABM90 The sands of time can never wash away the words
    Of Wise Men
    over 145 years ago. ‘A MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY”

  • My husband and I watched the first part of a documentary on Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton last night, and their struggles reminded me a LOT of what has happened in 2008. One of them — I believe that it was Elizabeth Cady Stanton — sheltered Frederic Douglass in her home when he was pursued, I assume, by slave-catchers. Frederic Douglass betrayed her later in the struggle for women’s rights and told her to “wait her turn.”

    I was dumbfounded by the similarities to 2008. Men are men.

  • Paula,

    As you may already know, a Kerry aide described John Kerry as being “absolutely crushed” or something like that when Hillary was appointed SOS instead of his sorry ass. I’m very happy about Judas, too. Sec of Commerce is nothing compared to SOS.

    Many local Leftists describe themselves as “disappointed.” I’m LMFAO.

    King Center picks honorees
    By Marcus K. Garner

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    Wednesday, November 26, 2008

    U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Chick-fil-A founder and CEO Truett Cathy will receive the King Center’s “Salute to Greatness” Award, officials announced Tuesday.

    The pair will be honored Jan. 17, on the weekend before the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

    Truett, whose national restaurant chain grew from modest beginnings to a business sensation, is noted for his philanthropic efforts and his books on learning life’s lessons.

    Clinton, the junior senator from New York and former first lady, was the most successful female presidential candidate ever, losing to President-elect Barack Obama. Clinton is reported to be Obama’s nominee for secretary of state.

    “We are delighted that Sen. Clinton will join us at our annual dinner, and to have the chance to honor her, Mr. Cathy and Chick-fil-A for their distinguished leadership,” said Isaac Newton Farris Jr., president and CEO of the King Center. “Sen. Clinton and Mr. Cathy have both set the highest standards of social responsibility in their respective fields of government and the private sector, and we look forward to thanking them for their humanitarian contributions toward fulfilling the dream of Martin Luther King Jr.”

    The Annual Salute to Greatness Awards Dinner honors individuals and corporations that have demonstrated a commitment to carrying forward King’s unfinished work.

    Please, God – let us know Obama is not the total weenie so many of us suspect.

    India reels over Obama’s silence.

    What, pray tell, does the President-elect have to do that is more important than calling the Indian Prime Minister in the last 2 days? Did he forget to bring his cell phone to the gym? Does Obama think governing is like a crappy award show in which a star sends his agent to accept?

    No Quarter tells us that President Clinton has been tapped by Obama as an envoy to the region – setting up both Clinton’s as potential fall guys for Obama’s lack of experience. I can’t quite get my mind around the idea that the world’s largest democracy suffers a massive terror attack and the President elect of the world’s oldest democracy neglects to place a call. Granted, he is NOT President yet – nevertheless – one has to wonder what Obama expects his job as President will be.

    If this episode is any indication Obama will be Bush 3: a detached figurehead with more qualified individuals around doing the heavy lifting.

    Australia outback mayor wins annual sexist award

    CANBERRA (Reuters) – An Australian outback mayor’s plea for lovelorn female “ugly ducklings” to move to a remote mining town to reverse a shortage of eligible women has won him the country’s yearly award for outrageous sexism.

    Mount Isa Mayor John Malony infuriated women in August with a suggestion that “with five blokes to every girl, may I suggest that beauty-disadvantaged women should proceed to Mount Isa,” in northwest Queensland state.

    “I think the message is ever vigilant, ever watchful, keeping people, keeping blokes on their toes and making sure that we name and shame them,” annual Ernies’ award organizer and lawmaker Meredith Burgmann told state radio.

    The annual awards have 10 categories and are decided by the level of boos, jeers and stamping of feet at women’s-only event held at the New South Wales state parliament in Sydney.

    NAIROBI, Kenya – Somali pirates hijacked a chemical tanker with dozens of Indian crew members Friday and a helicopter rescued three British security guards who had jumped into the sea, officials said.

    A warship on patrol nearby sent helicopters to intervene in the attack, but they arrived after pirates had taken control of the Liberian-flagged ship, according to Noel Choong, head of the International Maritime Bureau’s piracy reporting center in Malaysia.

    The ship master had sent a distress call to the piracy reporting center, which relayed the alert to international forces policing Somali waters, Choong said. No details about how the pirates attacked or the condition of the crew were available immediately.

    Choong said the ship was being operated out of Singapore.

    Still on board were 25 Indian and two Bangladeshi crew members, said diplomats who could not be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media. The British security guards escaped by jumping into the water, said a news release issued by their company, Anti-Piracy Maritime Security Solutions.

    The company said it was aware of the incident on the chemical tanker it identified as M/V BISCAGLIA.

    “We have been informed by coalition military authorities that three of our unarmed security staff were rescued from the water by a coalition helicopter and are currently on board a coalition warship in the Gulf of Aden,” the company statement said.

    German Defense Ministry spokesman Thomas Raabe confirmed that a naval helicopter lifted three people out of the water in the Gulf of Aden at about 4 a.m. Friday morning and deposited them on a French ship.

    Germany and France have ships in the area as part of a NATO fleet which, along with warships from Denmark, India, Malaysia, Russia and the U.S., have started patrolling the vast maritime corridor. They escort some merchant ships and respond to distress calls.

    The ship hijacked Friday was the 97th vessel to be attacked this year off Somalia, where an Islamic insurgency and lack of effective government have contributed to an increase in pirate attacks in the Gulf of Aden.

    Ships “must continue to maintain a 24-hour vigil and radar watch so they can take early measures to escape pirates. Even though there are patrols, the warships cannot be everywhere at the same time,” Choong said.

    Pirates have become increasingly brazen in the Gulf, a major international shipping lane through which about 20 tankers sail daily.

    Forty ships have been hijacked this year, including a Saudi supertanker loaded with $100 million worth of crude oil Nov. 15.

    Pirates demanding multimillion-dollar ransoms hold 15 ships and nearly 300 crew, Choong said.

    Somalia, an impoverished nation in the Horn of Africa, has not had a functioning government since 1991.

    State Department would be in ‘good hands’ under Clinton: Rice
    1 day ago

    WASHINGTON (AFP) — The State Department will be in good hands if former first lady Hillary Clinton is named as the country’s top diplomat, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Wednesday.

    Rice said at a press conference that president-elect Barack Obama had not yet officially named his choice for diplomat-in-chief.

    But in an apparent reference to Senator Clinton, she said: “I’ve heard some names of some great people, and I think that the department and the country will be in good hands.”

    According to Obama aides, Clinton’s nomination is on track and expected to be officially announced after Thursday’s Thanksgiving holiday.

    Editorial
    Hillary Clinton as diplomat
    Obama’s bold choice for his secretary of State shows the two can be partners on the world stage.
    November 28, 2008

    In selecting his erstwhile opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton, to be secretary of State, Barack Obama has gone boldly where no recent president has gone before. Unlike the lawyers, academics and generals who have dominated the office since World War II, Clinton combines substance and essential qualities for the job with celebrity and a political constituency.

    For those who followed the 2008 Democratic primary campaign, this appointment might seem head-scratchingly incongruous. Wasn’t it Clinton who impugned Obama’s readiness to be commander in chief with her now-infamous ad about a 3 a.m. call to the White House? Will she now insist on being patched in to that call?
    Apparently not. Both Clinton and Obama insist that, partly as a result of her tireless campaigning for him in the general election, they have made their peace and then some. It’s also true that their foreign policy differences were exaggerated in the fun-house mirror of the primary campaign. Like Obama, Clinton is willing to engage this country’s adversaries afresh, but without foreclosing military action when necessary to defend U.S. interests.

    Not even her detractors would deny that Clinton is smart, well-versed in foreign and defense issues and single-minded in pursuing her goals. Her perseverance even after Obama seemed almost certain of victory augurs well for her ability to press for diplomatic breakthroughs — in the Arab-Israeli conflict, for example — when persistence seems futile. So too does her renown as a first lady turned senator turned diplomat.

    A canny and charismatic secretary of State can be useful, however, only if allies and adversaries see her as the president’s absolute alter ego. As James A. Baker III, President George H.W. Bush’s secretary of State, observed, a foreign leader “can see daylight between a president and his secretary of State from a thousand miles away.” Such gaps are less likely when the secretary isn’t a political luminary. That may explain why the last politician of Clinton’s stature to serve as secretary of State was James Byrnes (1945-1947), a former U.S. senator and Supreme Court justice who had angled for the Democratic vice presidential nomination in 1944. (Christian Herter, a former governor of Massachusetts, served under President Eisenhower.)

    Although history suggests it is difficult for rivals to collaborate on foreign policy, Clinton may be particularly well-suited for the challenge. Her high profile could help energize U.S. foreign policy while her background as a lawyer serves her in tough negotiations. She has proved to be flexible and pragmatic, as has Obama. His appointment of Clinton, whatever its complexities, shows the president-elect’s sense of confidence in her and in the administration they now will share.

    JON FRIEDMAN’S MEDIA WEB
    Mr. Obama, enjoy the media adulation while you can
    Commentary: President-elect should remember that what goes up, must come down
    By Jon Friedman, MarketWatch
    Last update: 12:01 a.m. EST Nov. 28, 2008Comments: 250NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — I’m starting to feel a little guilty about the media’s treatment of President-elect Barack Obama — and I may not be the only one.
    Chalk it up to a phenomenon I’d like to call “Obama-remorse.” You know how you feel buyer’s remorse after you’ve spent a lot of dough on some big-ticket item, only to realize that you might have made a mistake? Well, it’s going to happen to the president-elect as well.
    Perhaps this sort of recognition prompted Washington Post media writer Howard Kurtz to do an incisive piece called “A Giddy Sense of Boosterism” on Nov. 17. As Kurtz noted, the media have tripped over themselves to celebrate and cash in on Obama’s victory.

    As I see it, the media are having second thoughts about their performance over the past year.
    First, they gave Sen. Hillary Clinton the cold shoulder and all but rolled out a red carpet for Obama during the Democratic primary season. Perhaps Amy Poehler’s eerily spot-on send-up of Clinton on “Saturday Night Live” helped reduce the New York senator to a caricature, making it even easier for the reporters to consign her to a complementary role.
    Once Clinton was dispatched, they lavished favorable attention on Obama, as his opponent, Republican Sen. John McCain, was forced to watch from the shadows.
    Yes, I’m thrilled that he won the election, underscoring the American ideal that we live in a foreword-thinking democracy, where any man or woman can rise to the highest office in the land. And I’m proud that even Obama’s staunchest foes — particularly the man he defeated, John McCain — seem to be willing to accept his victory and pledge to help him turn around the economy and cure the nation’s other ills.
    Adulation Express
    But I also feel guilty because I know that the media’s Adulation Express — never to be confused with McCain’s old Straight Talk Express — is going to hit a few speed bumps before it inexorably grinds to a halt.
    It’s inevitable. Look at what happened to Sarah Palin, McCain’s running mate.
    When McCain first nominated her, she could no wrong in the media’s eyes. She was hailed for her aw-shucks demeanor, in contrast to the inveterate Beltway sharpies, and her unlikely ascent to such a big job (I suspect that Tina Fey’s brilliant impersonation of Palin on “Saturday Night Live” owed as much to Palin’s newness as it did to Fey’s uncanny ability to look and sound like the governor of Alaska. Most SNL viewers had no frame of reference for Palin, other than her speech at the Republican National Convention, so Fey didn’t have to worry about competing with a hardened image of Palin).
    It’s inevitable, too, that Obama will eventually have his turn under the microscope. When the media start picking apart some of his Cabinet choices or his pronouncements on the state of the economy or his declarations about Iraq, he may be surprised to find that the afterglow of his stunning victory turns sour so fast.

    MEDIA WEB QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Have the media treated President-elect Barack Obama too kindly for the past year — and, if so, should that kind of treatment end now that he has won the election?

    Just a question. In discussion the BC issue with some of my online young people, they claim that the BC has been officially verified. I don’t remember this happening. Does anyone else? Anyway, if this were true, why would legal actions at the SC level be pursued at this point?

    Just wanted to check to see if anyone saw this someplace?

    oops…lol…should be “firefox. ;)

  • lil ole grape

    JanH, thanks — yes, I recall many of us had difficulty with “Foxfire” before … I make the same mistake re that name …firefox, foxfire.

    NMF — this whole thing about the bc issue is driving me nuts — keep trying to find out exactly what is happening, but there is so much MISinfo out there. As far as I can tell, the bc has NOT surfaced and some or all of the justices are to decide what to do about it in a few days. This is in response to the Donofrio (sp?) petition. Berg petitioned for a writ of certiorari which is a petition for the SC to reexamine a decision made by a lower court (as I understand it) but some say it was rejected, some say it’s delayed, some say that such a thing is extremely rare, some say it’s very common, etc etc. If anybody can direct me to facts about what is actually happening, please do!
    Dr. Kate on NQ said: “Justice Souter granted the writ of certiorari. Even if, as some have said, Souter’s action is not significant and procedural only, how Obama responds will reveal much about his view of the Constitution and will determine if the Supreme Court decides to hear the case.
    In my opinion, the questions raised by Berg and the questions raised in the case should not have been thrown out entirely based on standing alone, or by the notion that the injury to a voter is “vague”. The Supreme Court Rules permit the grant of a writ of certiorari only under specific circumstances.”
    Donofrio’s petition went to Clarence Thomas.

    I wish someone could steer me to a site where the whole thng to date is laid out clearly and verifiably.

    ALso I keep hearing Bill Clinton’s words during the Africa interview when he said so pointedly that anyone can be president if constitutionally eligible — duh? why would he he make a point of something so obvious?

    Nothing will come of this BC issue. It is too much of an upset for American pride. They will never face up to the world to say, we made a mistake. So it will be the biggest cover up if the truth happens to be that he is ineligible. The ultimate truth is known only to one person, that is Obama and he is not an honorable man (one way or another); he would somehow have leaked his true BC by now and silenced the detractors or would not have run at all if the truth was unacceptable if he was honorable.

    I believe that they knew all along about the BC issue and his other nefarious connections. I just think that money, power, and Chicago corruption were at play and cover-ups were the name of the game. I agree that this too will be swept under the table.

    They’ve (we’ve) said it before — Vietnam, for one. I have to hold out trust in our values till proved wrong. The mere fact that the SC is looking at the matrer is an indication they’re willing to face it. I mean, if they were going to cover it up, then why haven’t they? They didn’t just refuse to consider it. Future historians are going to have a ball with this Fraud.

    grape, that was the America I fell in love with and became a citizen of. But the last election was nothing about American values. The corner stone of American values in my view is the honor code — you see it at all levels, in class rooms and elsewhere like in caucuses. You declare that you live in that precinct and want to participate in the caucus. Nobody will question it because they know/trust you to be telling the truth (the honor code). What happened to that little gem of American culture in this election? I have lost faith but hope you are right. We’ll see if the SCs will uphold the constitution.

    yup. it’s a good way to confront sexism in a way that people are comfortable with – humor. Look at the Harvard Hasty Pudding award that awards the worst acting of the year – and it gets a lot of attention. ultimately, women and fair-minded men have to define what sexism is – people who are themselves sexist and misogynistic don’t truly understand sexism except as some sort of caricature when it is complex and subtle.

I discovered recently the UK gave up it’s “sovereignty” in July of 08′ when Brown signed the Lisbon Treaty joining hands with (38 countries..taking number from memory) under The New World Order, Global Economy under the authority of the International Monetery Fund. (aside: The city of London was cut out of the deal and remains soveriegn to the monarchy) (and I believe we have the same deal where DC remains sovereign to the US) The only country asking their citizens by referendum at their last election, if they want to join the Lisbon Treaty giving up Ireland’s Soverigenty. Citizens voting a resounding “NO”! (there hasn’t been any resolution yet with Ireland’s sovereign status)

    The next meeting for the IMF will be held in London in April. At this meeting is where I believe, with Obama as president, he will acquiese to the US giving up our sovereignty to the North American Union. (invisible borders between Mexico, US and Canada and in the near future a new currency to come…something called the Ameri-peso when the US Dollar is offically scrapped)

    You can begin here reading about Soros:

    Then jump to here detailing what the Bail-Out is all about and the eventual Nationalization of the major US Banks by the US, and the eventual creep forward into the NEW World Order and the takeover by the IMF-International Bankers.

    This post lays down a good foundation as a Cliff notes primer to where we are being taken and our inevitable outcome. Continue going forward reading up to and a little past the Soros post. Soros is first in the links here but almost last on my Blog…where the connection is mad between Soros, the IMF, Brown and the planned relinquishment of our sovereignty.

    Yes, I have taken to only reading the UK and Bloomberg Financial news.. I’m watching BBC America tv, almost exclusively now.

    And finally: HappyThanksGiving, Adm, and all here who care about our country…and once again, Adm your insightful writing is a beacon to all of us just trying to keep up with the involuntary rape of America and her unwarry citizens. Enjoy the day!

    Joys of old age….

    ? The security guards jumped ship and got rescued, while the pirates captured the crew ?

    Scepticism rises, then peaks when told that the story came from the security company…. I suspect some odd reporting somewhere along the line.

    ALso I keep hearing Bill Clinton’s words during the Africa interview when he said so pointedly that anyone can be president if constitutionally eligible — duh? why would he he make a point of something so obvious?

    I to have always wonder about this comment.

    Mrs Smith,

    I also google the CBC (Canadian) radio and internet TV sites, Australian radio and Video, plus 2-3 of the papers (the Age, the Australian and the Times), DK (German) Nightly news on PBS, as well as World Focus (sorta junky) on PBS nightly.

    Added to the BBC, one gets a very different perspective from the LA and NY Times, the Chicago Trib, Miami Herald etc.

    I told wbboei once that I am old enough I can remember when the Trib and Gannett did not own every darn paper around: we had god, the King and Queen and the 10 children…all 13 were high quality first tier NEWSpapers.

    Please do post some good story links at “Midstream News”,

    This is what Blue and I are creating, we were talking about it as ‘News Vigilantes’ or ‘News Worth Reading’.

    But Turndown,

    I thought you were talking about only papers/journals/magazines, etc.

    Except for the Aussie papers, all mine were radio or TV, some streamed over the internet, most not.

    btw, in print, add The Economist to my list, as well as The British Independent (slightly left of center), and the Times, of course, for more truth than fiction.

    I don’t worry so much about how a publication or broadcast “leans”, left or right, as I do about whether they are speaking the truth.
