McCain Applauds Woman's Inquisitiveness

McCain Supporter Calls Hillary A “Bitch”

John McCain and his Republican pals had quite a laugh when one of McCain’s lady friends referred to political opponent Hillary Clinton a “bitch”. Here’s Talking Point Memo’s take:

“How do we beat the bitch?” McCain’s supporter asked him. And as you can see, it appears that after McCain joked about offering a “translation” of his supporter’s query, he said: “That’s an excellent question.”

A McCain spokesperson has since released a statement ensuring the public that the Arizona Senator “respects” Clinton, much like he respects the Vietnamese.

    That’s as bad as when Frances referred to Oprah Winfrey as “bitch’ because she endorsed Obama.

    To paraphrase Mean Girls:

    When women call each other “bitches” and “sluts,” it only makes it OK for guys to do the same.

    I’m really sick of people slapping the “bitch” label on women just because they’re powerful and driven.

    Someone needs to give McCain her Aricept and tell her what day it is.

    I find the use of perjoratives absolutely inappropriate- whether it is from the Resident Vulgarist or from supporter orchestrating a celebrity moment for You Tube.

    There are yards of difference between women wearing the hajab and pasties…..and between women who professionally contribute to society and those who endorse patriarchalism.

    Whether you support the Corporatist party’s Neocon or Centrist DLC wing, you are getting two wings of the same bird…and they are both giving you the feather…I mean the claw….no the finger.

    I saw a tape of Mrs. McCain, the senior 95 year old mother and widow of the late Admiral McCain, speak clearly about the religious belief system of former Governor Romney.

    The McCain campaign seems to be a passive aggressive exercise immersed in plausible deniability.

    So what if she’s a bitch? Is the president supposed to be a doormat? Margaret Thatcher was a bitch. Golda Meir was a bitch. Indira Ghandi was a bitch. Strong women are bitches. HIllary should wear the name like a badge of distinction.

    Why are strong women bitches, hells kitchen guy? If a man is strong, is a he a bitch? Or a male equivalent of bitch? Nope, he’s just a strong man. You calling all these strong women bitches is sexist and patronizing.

  • hells kitchen guy

    my point is that strong women should embrace their inner “bitch,” take the word and make it a positive. You’re a “queer,” right?

    I’m a bitch, I’m a lover, I’m a child, I’m a mother, I’m a sinner, I’m a saint, I do not feel ashamed…

    I never thought I’d actually agree with Hell’s Kitchen Guy.

    All of that said, though, Al and Ash have valid points. It’s a word that gets thrown around to shoot women down, and is definitely indicative of a nasty double standard. I wouldn’t call a woman “bitch” unless she asked me to.

  • Ash

    I understand what you mean, hells kitchen guy, but it’s different for me to call myself a bitch than for a man to call me one. Yes, I’m a “queer” and a dyke, but if someone shouted that at me on the street I would be pissed. Embracing my inner bitch feels icky to me because the term in and of itself is so sexist. It’s only used against women and more recently, gay men. I don’t want to think of myself as a bitch. I don’t want to embrace that. It doesn’t feel empowering to me.

    it’s the new anti-hillary conservative catch phrase!

    Dirty Word – you’re trying to profit by exploiting hatred and bigotry. You’re damaging our country with this. Support who you will, but there’s a level of implied violence in your products that, I hope, most Americans will reject.
