it's official, joe lieberman is the ultimate dick. who in the world ever thought this man was qualified to be a vice-president on a democratic ticket. i saw over at the common ills that a guy from lieberman's state had written in to note that not every 1 was happy with him. is any 1?
and what is up with that lizz winstead on unfiltered?
i'm bored today, so i listen and big mistake.
remember i told you how she uses the blog to vent and gripe about people. well she went off on some guy who'd made some comment about air america. i have no idea what it was.
who could tell with her ranting and screaming.
i believe the guy's name was robert.
so she's in banshee territory when she starts talking about how she created the air america radio network.
what is up with that?
when randi rhodes talks, i know what she means. she'd proven that she could be successful in any market clear channel would let her in. (they refused to syndicate her show properly because she was too much competition for the house pet rush limbaugh.)
randi was looking for a way to take her show nation wide.
i'm sure she was very vocal when meeting the potential air america investors.
i understand what she's talking about completely.
and let's be real honest, she's one of the few (though not the only 1) who proved that liberal radio shows could get high ratings.
but la lizz?
i'm sure she made some key decisions, though radio wasn't her resume high point (the high point, sadly, was the craig kilborne daily show on comedy central).
but to hear her raging and screaming 'i created this network!' i honestly worried for rachel's safety. she was bellowing like faye dunaway in mommie dearest!
i kept picturing her grabbing a thing of comet cleaner and whacking rachel over the head with it while she continued screeching 'i created this network!'
does she really need to take credit like that. 'i!'
and if she does, can she do it nicely?
is there a reason to scream and yell, via the radio, at some guy on the blog?
p.m.s. much, lizz?
maybe her screech fest is why the blog was so dead. i went to it and tried to figure out who offended her so. 51 posts total. the day before there was over 400.
maybe people don't care for that screaming shit?
or maybe they're just tired of bullshit.
the ladies who laugh took it upon themselves to defend hillary clinton.
proving how uninformed they both are. yeah, that includes the big brain rachel.
to hear the chatty cathys tell it, hillary clinton was the world's biggest supporter of abortion rights.
that's why she voted in favor of the ban for late term abortions? is that the party line you're pushing?
ladies, ladies, lay off the yucks long enough to get informed.
maybe then you'd realize that hillary's actions have a context and the context is the party's attempt to back off from reproductive rights.
now lizz supports abortion rights. i'd never try to imply that she didn't. she believes in choice and she defends the right.
so how come she can't call hillary on bullshit?
and how come she and big brain are so unaware of triangulation -- the key clinton legacy?
any 1 with basic history, who isn't a clintonista, is well aware of the war on the poor conducted by bill (and sold via hillary) to triangulate with the republicans, to try to find common ground.
hillary even sold out her supposed friend marian wright edelman over that issue.
hillary's always been religious. that's the kind of in depth analysis the ladies gave us today.
see they think you can't criticize hillary because apparently they don't spend a lot of time in the feminist world.
despite the right's tarring hillary with the term feminist (or "feminazi") none of my feminist friends see hillary as a feminist.
she holds some progressive views, some. but she's not a feminist. that's like calling diane feinstein a feminist.
she's the first first-lady to become a senator. okay, well that's a record for hillary but like most of her records, they're about her. i don't see any uplifting of women.
and if we want to talk about how she's always been a church goer, let's talk about how she started out a goldwater girl as in barry. how even after her 'transformation' she still had barry to the white house.
i think we see that goldwater girl creep out a little too much in the current hillary.
and that they'd ignore reality (the dems push to the right on the abortion issue) and defend her after her husband was reported in the press to have told john kerry to basically disown civil unions is really amazing since big brain is a lesbian.
spit on me once, shame on you; spit on twice, i'm into water sports?
i mean come on rachel show a little pride.
common ground. that's what the ladies told us that hillary was going for.
that's the excuse for all the triangulation in the clinton administration.
so when hillary starts heading to the "common ground," the left should worry.
and why do we want to make common ground with people radically opposed to a woman's right to choose?
this was a point that lizz made at 1 point during the show.
that's reality lizz and i'll applaud you for it.
but that nonsense about hillary, all those 'stop questioning her.'
aren't they the same ladies who were telling us that we'd have to keep the pressure on?
but when it comes to hillary it's 'back off bitch' time.
maybe they're still starry eyed that hillary graced them with a brief, very brief, appearence prior to the election?
that was fluff time all the way.
remember when bill clinton tried to softball amy goodman in 2000? goodman didn't stand for it because she's got integrity. she didn't say 'oh well it's not a bush so i need to fuss and flatter.'
she held him accountable. and he needed that and we should have been doing that all along.
but the ladies go weak knee-ed when hillary is the issue.
which is really funny because what has hillary done for the party this month?
uh, she's refused to vote with boxer on ohio. and today she refused to vote against condi rice.
let me repeat that last part because it's still news today - hillary voted to confirm condi rice as secretary of state.
this is our feminist hero?
ladies, ladies, buy some common sense and, if they're having a two-for sale, pick up some integrity while you're at it.
today was just disgusting.
people are trying to hold hillary accountable, people on the left, and you 2 rush in to say 'back off!' are you her body guards?
hillary's a grown up, she's responsible for her actions. to hold her accountable or to question her, that's part of what a democracy is.
now lizz would go off into her 'i'm just a comedian' nonsense.
whenever lizz is wrong or still smarting over some 1 calling her out on being wrong, she'll launch into that lame excuse.
i don't care what you are lizz, you're filling up three hours monday through friday talking about current events (for the most part). either educate yourself or shut up.
and i happened to catch al franken today as well.
he's doing this mocking of bill o'reilly (thank god) for o'lielly implying he'd served in the military.
hey lizz, what's going to happen when o'lielly puts together a tape of you, randi and al all claiming to have created the air america network?
you think you won't look stupid then?
quit being such an ego maniac and if some 1 feels you made fun of mark dayton, don't turn around and say, 'i created this network! don't lecture me! and i'm from . . .'
who cares lizz? really.
you sold out on hillary. you made her more important than reproductive rights. big brain was right there with you.
you can't even whisper you were following marching orders from on high, i mean, you created the network after all!
hillary's trying to move the debate over. she's against late term abortions (and that's on the record but since you're a 'comedian' maybe you don't think you have to know that fact -- i have no idea what big brain's excuse is) and while feminists are loudly decrying the party's softening stance on reproductive rights, hillary clinton chooses to give the speech she gave.
to abortion rights supporters no less!
who was she trying to reach out to in that crowd?
and abstinence only is a waste of time as studies have shown. we don't need to throw any more money out on that bull shit. it's less effective than that stupid dare program.
but you both want to act as though moses has come down the mountain and we all need to fall in line.
get real. hillary's feminist credentials, such as they were, vanished during her husband's first term.
i'm not going to play rally around hillary.
if a man made those statements, the 2 ladies would rip him apart.
but because it's hillary they rush to tell us to stop questioning, to stop demanding accountability.
if this is the way it's going to be, they might want to change the name of the network from air america to clinton america.
ladies, today you were both dicks.
remember readers, i warned you that ladies could be dicks as well. condi rice, for instance.
today, big brain and over-forty-and-underweight were dicks.
maybe by tomorrow morning they'll have stopped off at a tag sale and picked up some common sense.
