[More Politics] Gutter Level Sexism and Other Smear Tactics
This is the front page of the New York Post the day after Obama swept the recent primaries. Women of a certain age will know that "wham bam" comes from "Wham bam, thank you Ma'am," the statement made by a guy after having quick sex with a woman and then standing up and leaving. Simply put the headline says [and pardon my language but this is an accurate translation of the headline]: Hillary got F***Ked.
It's another example of the way in which the press denigrates her as a woman.
Thanks to my friend Myra Weiss for catching this reference. [She saw it on television no less!]
Meanwhile Fox radio commentator Tom Sullivan ran side by side comparisons of a speech by Obama and Adolf Hitler. This is absolutely disgusting. Sullivan thought the whole thing was terribly amusing.
Both these actions should be roundly .condemned.
Which one do you think will be?
