When down, use the gender card

It would be incredibly damaging for Hillary to claim that she is being attacked for being a woman, because, let's face it, that chick is more of a man than Bill ever was, not to mention, self-victimization is not sexy. Only losers do that. But it's a good card to play, especially with Obama starting to gain on her. So she  needed someone to bring up the issue in a veiled way, and who does innuendos better than good ole Bill? Watch this fantastic piece of political Kung-Fu:

Former President Clinton said Monday his wife can handle the criticism
from her presidential rivals even though "those boys have been getting
tough on her lately."

Now notice how this is structured: she is a victim of abuse from "the boys" (they are not even men), but she can take it. The mean boys grabbed her pigtails and pushed her to the ground and stole her lunch money, but she got back up and stood her ground. See, both victimization and show of strength in the same sentence. Tarnish them and praise her, both indirectly, in a way that establishes the point and at the same time doesn't give anybody the chance to talk back. Plus, nice clouding of the issues, no? It's not that they are against her because she is a calculating soulless manipulative turd who has no morals or fixed position, it's because she is a woman and the boys just can't handle it.

See, this is exactly the shit that makes me miss Bill Clinton. I miss his blatant bullshit. I mean when he got out of that perjury thing by debating the meaning of the word Is? Fuck it man, I was clapping. Takes balls and skills to be this calmly and publicly full of shit, you know?

    The “girl” is Dick Nixon in drag. I don’t know why mainstream commentators haven’t noticed the similarities. Nasty, vindictive, secretive personality. Eight years in the White House playing second fiddle to a popular President whose sandals she wasn’t fit to unloose. Sort of running against a war the other party sort of started. Unfamiliar with the concept of honesty. Uses family pets to deflect criticism. Strange relationship with China. Creepy as hell….

    Bill called Obama a “boy”?

    Playing the victim card is not good for anyone hoping to be President. No one wants a wimp to be their president, even if that person is being picked on unfairly. Although Hillary is not being picked on unfairly. Her opponents are merely pointing out the fact that the only principle she holds is that she will say anything to get elected.

    gee SM tell me how you really feel. Yeah Hillary’s always striked me as a bit of a wack job, plus everything that family had done since the 80’s has been political so there’s no way ANYTHING they say is genuine.
