Running With The Big Dogs

We all know about the pummeling Hillary Clinton got at the latest Democratic presidential debate. We also know that Hill has tried to bounce back from this debacle by playing the gender card. She was ganged up on by mean ol' men who dared to question her because she's a woman. We can't let that stand, ladies! Defend poor Hillary!! This makes me want to puke. It's a shameless but all too typical example of liberal hypocrisy.

C'mon Hill! You claim to be a strong woman. You insist that women receive equal rights and equal treatment. Apparently, though, you don't know what that means. Well, let me tell you. It means that if you dodge straightforward questions; if you have murky positions on important issues; if you choose to put yourself in the meat grinder that is presidential politics you have to take the hard blows that go with that. Do you think that the territory of politics should change because you're a woman? Isn't that the antithesis to the equality that feminism is supposed to be about?

I cannot imagine Margaret Thatcher or Golda Meir whining about some boys' club ganging up on them. They were too busy acutally running their countries and winning wars. Margaret Thatcher took what was meant as an insult and turned it into a distinguished moniker, becoming known worldwide as The Iron Lady. If this latest episode is any indication you, Hillary, are no Iron Lady. So please, either shut up and play the game as is or take the advice of an old saying: if you can't run with the big dogs stay under the porch.

Even more ironic is that Hillary (HRC) got into that mess by defending NY Governor Eliot Spitzer's inane plan to dole out NY driver's licenses to illegal aliens.

What a dumb idea!

If that goes through, you couldn't even use a NY driver's license as ID to board a domestic flight.

Eliot Spitzer is one of the dumbest sons of bitches ever to cop a squat in the Governor's Mansion...and he's got the cajones to be arrogant about it too!

That makes HRC just about equally as dumb for defending that half-baked, hare-brained scheme.
