Sexism Isn’t About THAT Woman—But ALL Women

Sexist attacks are daily lobbed at Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand and Amy Klobuchar over social media and, of course, by the pundit class on mainstream media. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spanked Trump hard on his horrid shutdown, reminding us how fierce she is at holding together her Parties’ coalition, rendering foolish anyone who called for “new blood” in opposing her return...

Fighting for Women’s Rights at the Voting Booth

GOP efforts to ram through Brett Kavanaugh’s  lifetime Supreme Court appointment while hiding vital information about him from the public showcases not only the urgency of overturning one-party rule, but the need to elect more Progressive women to office.  Women’s rights in particular will be affected if Kavanaugh is confirmed and, as predicted, pushes the Supreme Court further right, likely overturning Roe v. Wade.  That...

The Shame in White Male Savior Syndrome

Shame on every man from NBC’s Chuck Todd and Joe Scarborough, CNN’s Jake Tapper, Vox’s Ezra Klein, Rep. Trey Gowdy, former FBI Director Jim Comey, to Steve Schmidt to Senator Bernie Sanders and yes, even, Senator John McCain.  Every single one did nothing but bash Hillary Clinton, working to tank her poll numbers and depress her voters in the run-up to the 2016 election. All are...

Comey’s Ego

It never ceases to amaze the lengths to which reporters, pundits, even voters will go to defend or excuse what former FBI Director Jim Comey did to help Trump realize the *presidency*.  His self-serving explanations, designed to resurrect his reputation just in time for his book tour, offered in his 60 Minutes and ABC’s 20/20 interviews ring hollow.  Comey found it acceptable to break protocol...

Hillary Clinton versus a Conscience-Free Media

Jeffrey Toobin coming out two years too late to say he “regrets his role” in working to take Hillary Clinton down with “false equivalence” is like perpetrators of the Salem Witch Trials saying they regret burning innocent women at the stake after they are already dead. WaPo has the story: So long as President Trump continues disgracing the Oval Office, thoughtful people will probe their own...

No, Judge Aquilina Wasn’t “Mean” Sentencing Larry Nassar

No, Judge Aquilina Wasn’t “Mean” Sentencing Larry Nassar

If you find it preposterous that a sitting female Judge is getting backlash for making a speech admonishing serial pedophile “Dr.” Larry Nassar while sentencing him, join the club. Have any of the guys on social media who called Judge Rosemarie Aquilina “mean” for telling Nassar off ever heard a male Judge speechify from the bench? Ever been in a courtroom?  It would be odd...

The New York Times’ Devastating Effect on the Election

With Senator Dianne Feinstein’s choice to make public the full transcript of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Trump-Russia connection becomes more evident, and criminal wrongdoing more likely.  As a result, The New York Times is getting grief on social media for “screwing up” via their false above-the-fold headline that “FBI sees no connection between Russia and Trump” in...

Misogynists Shape the Narratives that Keep Women from Power

The New York Times’ Glenn Thrush and The Young Turks’ Cenk Uyger are the two latest “journalists” to be hoist on the petard of their own misogyny. As has been pointed out elsewhere, if you want to know why Hillary Clinton got such crap coverage in 2016, and in 2008 for that matter, you need look no further than the men who shape the “news”...

Hillary Clinton, Susan Sarandon, files labeled for reuse

How Long Must We Pay the Price for Ideologues?

Having gone silent in disgust watching the deflections of a Hillary-bashing media, I now raise my head to see a platform still offered to the reckless, rich Susan Sarandon to continue her anti-Hillary screeds.  Pundits and anchors denying culpability for Clinton’s election “loss” even while egging on misogyny and smear against her from factions left and right, foreign and domestic, are supposed to be better...

The Insecure Male Behind Hillary Hate

The Insecure Male Behind Hillary Hate

Hillary Clinton was recently chosen America’s most admired woman for an unprecedented 21st year, yet the boundless admiration she inspires is matched by irrational revulsion.  The chasm between positive and negative made it critical that we examine what her presence meant on the world stage as she vied to become our first woman President, yet too many looked away: “We’re past all that, we don’t...
