you who are a blogger whom I truly respect, please tell me what you think about diaries that use sexist language to inflame and derogate? It seems to me that this diary contributes nothing more than fuel to a fire that everyone is trying to extinguish. Clinton supporters are NOT fully onboard with the Obama camp and diaries like this one make the jump even less inviting.
that you would find this diary of value considering the extremely offensive and sexist attacks on Clinton supporters. I see no productive value to it whatsoever unless the goal is to further inflame and insult.
Calling Clinton supporters "skanks" is no different than describing Obama supporters with a racial slur and then telling them to get a sense of humor.
And all under the guise of "honest reclamation of what we all support together." I guess that reclamation includes misogynistic, locker-room language aimed at women who support Hillary Clinton. And if they don't like being called a "skank," well, they're "humor impaired."
Skank is a slang and pejorative term used in English to describe a certain type of female.  The term "skank" differs from that of "slut" in that whereas the latter implies only sexual promiscuity; the former also implies poor taste, personally degrading behaviour and low socioeconomic class. Also used as slang for lower class female that is dirty or not presenting herself well. Other skank behaviors can include being obsessed with celebrity lifestyle and emulating it. In recent years "Skank" (or "Skankster") is also used in some parts of the U.K to describe unappealing individuals of either sex with habitual poor personal hygiene, most notably long-term drug addicts; a usage in some ways harking back to its original application. Originally denoting a bad smell or a filthy surface, "skank" has come to refer to someone who is physically repugnant for their filth, and figuratively applied to someone who is morally or socially repugnant for their behavior and demeanor, most often sexual conduct.
However, I won't be donating to any Democrats until I see how the convention is handled. I am going to wait and see if the party is going to give Hillary Clinton the courtesy of putting her name in nomination. If she and her supporters are treated with respect, then I'll be much more favorably inclined towards down ticket races.
The African-Americans and Latinos being paraded across the stage at the Republican Convention are intended to give a hip, multicultural feel -- and dispel the pervasive notion that the G.O.P. is largely a party of, by and for white Americans. But subtract the minority props -- the break dancers and the gospel choir and the beaming schoolchildren -- and what you have is the same ultra-white party that shocked many Americans' sensibilities at the 1992 and 1996 conventions. The deluge of black and Latin faces on display in Philadelphia is deceptive, given that the party's delegates and senior managers are as white as they have ever been.
Sounds like more stagecraft to me. Hide the real face of your party in the basement and pretend no one will notice.
