    And Amy Poehler makes a hilarious Hillary.

    Keep It Up with the Condescending, Charlie Gibson

    Friday, September 12th, 2008

    With even Alessandra Stanley calling out ABC’s Charlie Gibson for looking rude, impatient and condescending in his Sarah Palin interview, one has to wonder whether the women of the swing states in the middle of the country–the people who will decide the election–will be even more vocal about it, especially since the idea of sexism [...]

    Harriet Tubman Never Said Those Things

    Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

    According to the New York Times, Harriet Tubman didn’t say all the things attributed to her by Hillary Clinton last night. Hillary apparently got them from fictionalized children’s books. Oops. I’m still watching the recording of tonight’s events. Biden was a complete bore, and even the delegates sensed it. Does a single line of his [...]

    Bill Kristol “Shocked” by Hillary Clinton’s Speech

    Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

    On Fox News Channel, William Kristol: “She said not a word about Obama as a person.” Kristol says Hillary mentioned Obama ten times and everything she said about him could have been said about any generic Democrat who received the nomination. He calls it a “shockingly minimal” endorsement, or words to that effect. He points [...]

    Is She Now Hillary Rodham Clinton Again?

    Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

    I can’t remember the last time I heard Hillary referred to as “Hillary Rodham Clinton,” as her daughter Chelsea just did. This was her handle early in the 1992 campaign, but she quickly dropped it when it seemed to mark her as a feminist career woman instead of a devoted wife. Chelsea seemed to make [...]

    Hillary Clinton Digs Van Halen?

    Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

    Liveblogging the Democratic Convention:
    Hillary Clinton’s (well-produced, thoroughly professional) campaign video was backed with a soundtrack of the Van Halen cover of the Kinks “You Really Got Me.” Whoa. Later came Tom Petty’s “American Girl.” Better, but isn’t a Yale-trained feminist like Hillary exactly the kind of person who, when “American Girl” came out, would go [...]

    The Democrats, Night One: Whiff

    Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

    I was going to write about the convention last night (instead, I wound up going to a double feature of two upcoming fall films, “Appaloosa” and “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist”) but didn’t. My impression: you get four shots to sock the pinata, Monday through Thursday, and last night was a clear miss.
    The only two [...]

    Hillary Clinton and Misogyny

    Saturday, June 7th, 2008

    I wrote on April 20 that with Hillary’s defeat would come lots of people blaming misogyny. Bt is hating Hillary the same thing as hating women?

    Hillary Clinton Channeling Eminem

    Friday, May 9th, 2008

    When Hillary Clinton said yesterday in a USA Today interview that people should vote for her based on her support from “white Americans,” I naturally envisioned her taking the logical next step and rapping out the idea in a duet with Eminem, who memorably informed us in “White America,” the opening track from the album [...]

    Hillary Clinton and “Iron My Shirt”

    Sunday, April 20th, 2008

    Over at Hillaryland, there isn’t much left to do except try to convince history that her campaign was killed by sexism. Good luck with that one, folks.
