Women Candidates Are Stronger When They Fight Sexism

In Jonathan Chait’s New York Intelligencer article cautioning women “not to play the victim card” when running as 2020 presidential candidates, doesn’t he see that a man telling a woman how she should present herself to the American people is in itself sexist? Why does he get to instruct her?  What white male has ever had to deal with gender issues on the national stage? ...

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...

Go Away, Bernie. Finally, Go Away.

Politico’s headline “Bernie blames Hillary for allowing Russian interference” is enough to make me upchuck. Yes, Russian bots did help your campaign, Bernie Sanders, and you knew it and did nothing.  But you still want to blame Hillary Clinton to deflect from your egotistical, guilt-ridden spoiler behavior, hoping those naïve enough not to know any better will buy it.  No chance. Politico’s Edward-Isaac  Dovere does...

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

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”...

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...

Hillary Clinton and What Happened – Why It Matters To All Of Us

Hillary Clinton’s moving account of What Happened in the 2016 election offers extraordinary insight into a woman’s journey at the highest level of politics and rings the alarm about what’s at stake for America in our current divided climate. While it’s heartbreaking to read Clinton’s comprehensive vision for our country, knowing what we lost, we will never overcome the double standards powerful women face in...

Hillary, Don’t Apologize

Hillary, don’t you dare apologize. You ran a fierce campaign centering people of color, women, LGBTQ, people with disabilities, families and immigrants – all of whom are woefully underrepresented in government …and on Sunday talk shows.  You didn’t let us down. America let you down.  From the launch of your first campaign video, you showcased the best of us, of all stripe, striving together in...

Media’s Hillary-Hate and Trump-Coddling Were Weapons To Silence Women

Shell shocked after seven months of Trump’s presidency, appalled in particular at his equivocating remarks defending racists after the disgrace of Charlottesville, we still struggle to understand how we got here. Roxane Gay’s NYT op-ed Hate That Doesn’t Hide states what so many of us feel: “Angry white men holding tiki torches and shouting their throats raw chanting “blood and soil,” spittle hanging from their...

Kamala Harris Gets Hillary’d

When speaking of Hillary Clinton, anyone who ever bought or sold the line: “I’d vote for any woman just not THAT woman” can now put that twaddle in the dustbin where it belongs. This week, we saw accomplished career prosecutor, former California AG, US Senator and Democratic rising star Kamala Harris shushed by several of her male colleagues when questioning both AG Jeff Sessions and...
