The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Inadvertantly caused by Ed Morrissey:

NOW President Terry O’Neill ignores the First Rule of Holes (stop digging!) and provides another cycle for Republicans to defend Ann Romney and stay-at-home moms. Instead of leaving bad enough alone, O’Neill appeared on Ed Schultz’ MSNBC show last night and attempted to rewrite Hilary Rosen’s faceplant . . .

“Holes . . . Hilary Rosen faceplant”?

You’re twisted and depraved, Ed. We will not soon forgive you for that mental image. Also, this video of The Other Ed:

If a woman’s choices were (a) Ed Schultz or (b) lesbianism, could anyone really blame her for choosing (b)?

Meanwhile, guess who is accusing the Catholic League of “hate” for “raising the wholly irrelevant issue of Hilary Rosen’s sexuality”?

You know who doesn’t think Hilary Rosen’s sexuality is wholly irrelevant? Hilary Rosen. Maggie’s Notebook chronicles Rosen’s radical “transformative” activism with her ex-partner, Elizabeth Birch. And Donald Douglas writes at American Power:

So let’s be honest here: Rosen’s homosexuality has everything to do with how she sees family, motherhood, and work. . . .
Just because someone is gay doesn’t mean you can’t talk about how their gayness radicalizes their politics.

No one is proposing to infringe on Hilary Rosen’s constitutional right to plant her face wherever she chooses, but . . . Wait a minute: Jay Carney personally knows three people named “Hilary Rosen”?

    He also notes that Maxine refers to Mitt as Mitt Rotney. To be fair she probably thinks that’s his name.

    ‘Just because someone is gay doesn’t mean you can’t talk about how their gayness radicalizes their politics.”

    NONONO… you’re not just supposed to accept other people’s diversity; you’re also supposed to pretend you don’t even notice it.  The only way to accept other people’s individuality is to deny the existence of everything that makes them indivdual… unless they demand something by asserting it.

    WHAT is so hard to understand about that, you reactionary swine?!

  • richard mcenroe

    Ah, NOW…. the organization that promised women they could have “it” all…. run by women who didn’t want half of “it”….

  • Pathfinder’s wife

    Forget about stupid Rosen and forget about stupid NOW; that’s all just kabuki and yapping lapdogs — the script from the WH is the thing to hammer away at…and of course the media complicity in this.

    Jay Carney is the sorriest excuse for a liar since language was invented.

    Me:  “Hey, Jay! What’s that behind your back?”

    Jay: “Back? Whose back?”

    Me: “Behind your back, Jay.”

    Jay: “Look, I know at least four-hundred and thirty-five people whose names starts with “J” so I really don’t know what you’re talking about…listen can we change the subject, I don’t have time to listen to paranoid accusations right now…”

    It would be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic. This guy’s job is to lie, and be convincing about it, but he’s so bad at it, I don’t think he could convince me that water was wet.

    Huh.  Our resident troll (eh en eh em eye kay eh — IYKWIMAITTYD) hasn’t shown up to crap all over this thread.  You’d think it would here, supporting Womyn against us evil right wing nuts.

    It must be hitting the cheap hooch again.

    If we’re going to obsess over wimmin’s sexuality, we need the sage counsel of an expert.  Not even remotely safe for work.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Very clever.

    Good point, King Tut Tut.

    I think the other side has begun to lose the narrative.

     Stacy wouldn’t be so down all the time if he would only learn to celebrate diversity!

    Ya gotta admit, it looks like fun:

  • Adjoran

     I wanted the reporter to say, “We mean the one who visited the White House THREE TIMES as often as the Secretary of Defense, Doogie!”

  • Adjoran

     I thought he was the Tsk-ing Bandit.

  • Adjoran

     Heh – “Break out the large canvases!”

    But there wasn’t a carpet in the whole scene . . .

    Hilary Rosen thinks the “swiftness” of modern day politics is “enormously frightening?” Like a flea on an elephant to how “swiftly” her man Obama has set in place frightening policies that will take us years to overcome, if ever.  Many thanks for the link.

     I can go either way.
