Feeling For Hillary....

...this pic has made the rounds lately, of President-elect Barack Obama's chief speechwriter, 27-year-old Jon Favreau (at left) copping a feel off of a cardboard Hillary cutout:

Thoughts? Well, it's a fratboy-mentality gag, nothing to raise the roof about.

EXCEPT...Obama has seemed to have a "chick problem" since day one, sneering disrespectfully at Hillary Clinton during the debates, calling female reporters "sweetie", refusing to pick a female VP candidate when one would have given him an absolute cruise to an election victory, and so on.

If Karl Rove had done it, the dreaded National Organization of Woman would have raised the freakin' roof. But because it's a Democrat who's engaged in blatent sexist behavior as opposed to a Republican engaged in perceived sexist behavior, well...this is what you get:

The National Organization for Women, which last struck issuing news releases on why Sarah Palin isn't a real woman, refused to comment on the Obama speechwriter incident. When NOW's press secretary Mai Shiozaki was reached Friday, she first claimed not to have seen the Favreau photograph. But when called later, she offered two reasons for not weighing in: "I haven't looked into it" and "I have a 5 p.m. deadline. ... I am already late."

For symbolic purposes, Favreau ought to go. Obama may have wooed back the woman this time, with the assistance of the media's bind-and-rape of Sarah Palin, but there is no guarentee they will stick around.

This Obama fellow does not seem to understand women very well at all - maybe somebody should tell him of their notoriously long memories, and their ability to nurse grudges for inhuman amounts of time?

Well, one thing is finally clear to me - the reason for Barack Obama's empty, platitude-filled speeches. Written by a kid who has virtually no life experiences, it stands to reason that the spaces that would need to be filled with real-life experience instead were jam-packed with empty rhetoric.

Kinda like the President-elect himself!
