How Sexism Upended an Election and Why It Won’t Change

How Sexism Upended an Election and Why It Won’t Change

Five years ago, I published Dirty Words on Clean Skin, a book exposing the sexism, coming mainly from the left, that derailed Hillary Clinton’s 2008 razor-close bid for the Presidential nomination. I wrote it as a call to action and to share a truth, the publication of which was intended to overcome chauvinist bias going forward.  The 2016 presidential election was a painful reminder of...

Trump Kompromat Gets Benefit of the Doubt? Hillary Wouldn’t

Just when you thought the cesspool likely planting itself at the White House couldn’t get more unseemly or terrifying, Vox shared “CNN’s …bombshell of a story —  the heads of America’s top intelligence agencies showed President-elect Donald Trump evidence that the Russian government may have “compromising personal and financial” information on him and that his campaign spoke directly with Kremlin intermediaries.” Further: “The allegations came,...

Maybe I Should Just Share Pictures of My Cats

Hard to know what some people wouldn’t find threatening. Write positively about the most qualified, accomplished woman in a generation – some people don’t like that. Write about why she lost an election that everyone thought she was going to win – some don’t like that either, even though, for all intents and purposes, Hillary’s political career is over. You’d think they’d be happy. Not...

Hillary Takes The High Road – Cynical Media and Republican Leadership Don’t Care

In the wake of Donald Trump’s scandal exposing his lewd 2005 “hot mic” comments condoning the sexual assault of women, some in Republican leadership have finally and, in the name of self-preservation, pulled their endorsements.  Unimpressed with such pearl-clutching, Media Matter’s Oliver Willis and HuffPo’s Jeffrey Young called out a click-bait driven press corps and the Republican Party’s feigned disgust since they were well aware...

Hillary Faces Down the Devil and Wins — Again

Reviews are in and Hillary Clinton was declared the clear winner in her first Presidential debate against Donald Trump. A lot was riding on her performance last night. No one has yet been able to stop the rise of unpredictable demagogue Trump, a man so comfortable lying that it’s hard to keep track of each falsehood. But Hillary is best under pressure, when her back...

Taking on Corporate Media’s Well Paid Hillary-Bashers

I am regularly asked why Andrea Mitchell still has a job at NBC. The complaint is: “She’s so biased against Hillary Clinton, she may as well be campaigning against her.  It’s all sneer, smear and innuendo.” True. But the medium is the message. TV networks pay many millions of dollars per year to pundits, dressing them in tony outfits to sit behind imposing desks in...

Beltway Press, You Own Matt Lauer: Trashing Him Doesn’t Absolve You

Beltway press reviews are in on Matt Lauer’s abysmal performance at NBC News’ Commander-in-Chief Forum last night: Lauer was out of his depth, ill-prepared and sexist, lobbing open ended softballs at a lying, flailing, Donald Trump, never correcting him while performing a hit job on Hillary Clinton. At a forum dedicated to foreign policy, Lauer spent most of his time on – God help me...

New York Times and the Beltway Press Shamed Into Doing Their Jobs

God bless Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman for consistently having the stones to take on his own newspaper. The New York Times’ political desk has engaged in a decades long campaign to ruin the Clintons, Hillary in particular, offering all manner of disrespectful crud about her that has been repeatedly disproved, though it still remains part of the Conservative and beltway press’ political porn fantasy lexicon....

Double Standards for Hillary and the Clinton Foundation

Double Standards for Hillary and the Clinton Foundation

Only a member of the American Press would have the gall to use the word “venality” to describe Hillary Clinton, who has fought to get proper education for disabled children, fought against discrimination, worked for the Children’s Defense Fund, for first responders, veterans, women and girls for forty plus years. Her opponent, Donald Trump, is “venal” with his every waking breath and spent a lifetime...

Hillary’s Leadership Model Shines Despite Resistance

Vox’s Ezra Klein penned a thoughtful piece about “Hillary the listener” and her strengths as revealed through a leadership model that departs from male campaign bluster (and sometimes, slogans without substance) to which we are accustomed, and of which we are too accepting.  Hillary’s speeches are often judged more thorough than exciting, but her ability to show you how her mousetrap is going to work...
