“Did I mention I’m a woman?” is her primary sales pitch. More in my Sunday column.
And Amy Poehler makes a hilarious Hillary.
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 […]
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 […]
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.

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.

My impression: you get four shots to sock the pinata, Monday through Thursday, and last night was a clear miss. The only […]
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?
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 […]« Previous Entries
