CNN Commentator compares Hillary Clinton to Glen Close in Fatal Attraction

That's right.  A commentator on CNN compared Hillary Clinton to the Glen Close character in Fatal Attraction.  A character that is portrayed as profoundly psychotic and violently unstable.  Is this funny?  Should we just laugh this off like the Iron My Shirt guys?  Is this funny like the t-shirt that says, "Bros before Hos" and has Barack and Hillary's picture?

It's not funny and it's not okay.

Taking the High Road

Suzanne Pharr is an organizer, political strategist, founder of the Women's Project in Arkansas, co-founder of Southerners on New Ground, and ardent feminist.

I am currently majoring in Human and Family Development Studies with a concentration on Women's Studies (I hope to become a Social Worker) and discovered Suzanne through a Women's Studies course I took a few semesters ago.  She has since become a woman I deeply admire.

Hit Man Olbermann: "Take Her Into a Room..."

Imagine a prominent television newscaster saying this on air:

"....someone who can take Obama and Clinton out behind the shed, and only she comes out."

Just imagine.

In case you missed it, Keith Olbermann on Countdown said this Wednesday:

"....somebody who can take her (Clinton) into a room, and only he comes out."

Does Keith secretly want to eliminate all strong women, or just those who threaten to beat a man for the Presidency?

Take a look...

This is serious. It's a threat. Olbermann is implying that "someone" should physically remove Hillary Clinton.  Take her out.  Get rid of her.

Where is the uproar, the outrage, the demands for Olbermann's resignation?  We know that such comments would be unacceptable if they were aimed at Obama.

Clinton needs to be removed, says Olbermann, because of the "negativity, for which she is mostly responsible" in the Democratic race, quoting The New York Times editorial "The Low Road to Victory."

But the Times' Paul Krugman corrected the record today, and strongly rejected the Wednesday editorial in his piece "Self Inflicted Confusion:"

According to many Obama supporters, it's all Hillary's fault. If she hadn't launched all those vile, negative attacks on their hero -- if she had just gone away -- his aura would be intact, and his mission of unifying America still on track.

But how negative has the Clinton campaign been, really? Yes, it ran an ad that included Osama bin Laden in a montage of crisis images that also included the Great Depression and Hurricane Katrina. To listen to some pundits, you'd think that ad was practically the same as the famous G.O.P. ad accusing Max Cleland of being weak on national security.

It wasn't. The attacks from the Clinton campaign have been badminton compared with the hardball Republicans will play this fall. If the relatively mild rough and tumble of the Democratic fight has been enough to knock Mr. Obama off his pedestal, what hope did he ever have of staying on it through the general election?

Most rational people agree that both campaigns have attacked each other. Certainly Obama's campaign has not been innocent. It's called politics; this is a rough race for the most important job in the world.

Now, Obama's whining is having such an impact on his media pals that they are calling for Clinton to be taken "into a room?"

It's criminal to suggest that Clinton should somehow be restrained because Obama seems to have suffered a setback in this heated contest.  As Krugman says, if Obama can't survive the relatively tame primary battle, he'll be useless in the general election.

Olbermann should be fired for implying that it would be appropriate to harm a presidential candidate.

The Media's Creation Unravels: Why Obama Should Drop Out

Sen Obama should drop out of the race. Having just seen the new attack ad that the GOP is showing in NC -- condemning the state's Democratic leadership for backing Obama, replete with Rev Wright cursing America -- it is clear that Senator Obama is detrimental to the Democratic brand nationwide. As Jerome Armstrong wrote nearly one month ago, "That's fall-out from Wright, not against just Obama, but also Clinton, and most likely against the Democratic Party in general. It's branding of Democrats Obama, and Clinton, as anti-American."

Obama earned his lead early on, prior to being vetted. After he lost Texas and Ohio, the Wright videos appeared, shocking the nation. Slowly, information about his relationship to Rezko, and his affiliation with William Ayers have also entered the mainstream.

John McCain: Drive By

John McCain. Not a bright man.

I'm sure that people remember the Ledbetter case. The one where the apolitical, completely neutral "conservatives" (I'm really looking forward to one or two more of those on the court!) decided that, in a wage discrimination case, the charge had to be filed within 180 days of the act of discrimination (in this instance the unequal pay decision) or too freakin bad for you!

So here's the landscape. When a pay decision is made you have to ask all of your colleagues what they make so you can determine if you're being discriminated against. That's very realistic!
