  • Calling Hillary 'Mrs. Clinton' is sexist, say Georgetown Dems

    "Referring to Hillary as 'Mrs. Clinton' diminishes her accomplishments by specifically attaching her to Bill and subtly diverting attention to her famous husband and his administration ... it makes her appear as if she retired after serving as First Lady and retreated to Arkansas to stereotypically sip sweet tea on her front porch, instead of then becoming a [U.S.] Senator and Secretary of State."

    When President Barack Obama ran for re-election, Democrats made no secret of their disdain for Mitt Romney. That was all before Donald Trump. Horrified by the prospect of Trump in the White House, Obama and his party have changed their tune about Romney. As they denounce Trump as “unhinged” and unfit, they’re getting nostalgic about the 2012 Republican nominee they now describe as principled, competent and honorable. It’s a sharp reversal from four years ago. Back then, Democrats spent hundreds of millions of dollars portraying the former Massachusetts governor as a callous, unpatriotic, pet-abusing caricature of the über-rich. …

    Walmart is asking customers to nominate their favorite teachers to win school supplies and a $490 gift card (approximately how much the average public school teacher spends out of pocket on classroom supplies). For whatever reason, the promotion to give free supplies and money to teachers has the Washington Teachers' Union up in arms. The Washington Post reports that Washington Teachers' Union President Elizabeth Davis called the promotion a "cynical coverup." Other union members called it "deceitful" and "bogus."

    Mediaite ^ | 8-7-2016 | Josh Feldman
    As far as ABC’s Cokie Roberts is concerned, Donald Trump attacking Hillary Clinton as “unhinged” is basically a gendered attack. Trump has recently taken to calling Clinton “unhinged” and “unbalanced,” implying she’s “not all there.” On ABC’s This Week this morning, Sara Fagen said that’s not the issue people have with Clinton, so that won’t be a particularly helpful line of attack. Then Roberts said, “‘Unhinged’ and ‘she doesn’t look presidential’ is totally code for ‘we shouldn’t elect a woman.’ That’s exactly what that is.”

Since Donald Trump's announcement to run for presidency in 2015 several artists have come out against the nominee's use of their music.

ABC led the way with two minutes and 14 seconds hyping and/or showing the protester jostle with delegates and security as chief anchor and Clinton Foundation donor George Stephanopoulos intently interested in the protester’s actions. This then gave way to chief foreign correspondent Terry Moran chiding the RNC for “another...

Let’s first point out the so-called “common sense gun safety legislation” these Democrats claim was the impetus behind their fund-raising escapade disguised as a protest. The crux of their agenda had to do with legislation designed to prevent individuals on the terrorist...

    A new political action committee has one question for straight white men with political aspirations. "Dude, can you not?" It's a question embedded in the name of the organization. The Can You Not PAC plans to discourage straight white men from running for office in Colorado's diverse districts. The hope is that will clear the lane for female, minority and LGBTQ candidates.

    April 19, 2016, 10:20 am Biden: I'm not 'Goofy Uncle Joe' By Jordan Fabian Vice President Biden is not a fan of being labeled “Goofy Uncle Joe.” “No, I'm not comfortable with Goofy Uncle Joe,” he said in an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood. Biden said voters took him seriously when he considered running for president last summer. “And, by the way, the so-called Goofy Uncle Joe — if you notice, I beat every Republican in every poll when they thought I was running,” he said. “You notice that my favorability was higher than anybody that's running for office in...
  • Hamilton to Stay on $10 bill, Jackson Will be Replaced on $20

    After much speculation on the possible replacement of Alexander Hamilton’s portrait on the $10 bill, it appears the nation’s first Secretary of the Treasury will stay put on the heavily-circulated note. While the high-profile support voiced by the cast and creator of the popular Broadway musical, Hamilton, could not have hurt the founding father’s case to remain on the 10, it seems current Treasury Secretary Jack Lew counts himself among Hamilton’s admirers and was reluctant to replace him from the beginning. This doesn’t mean things will stay as they are. CNN notes that a “mural-style depiction of the women’s suffrage...

    Bono has identified a new weapon in the war on terrorism: “Borat.” The U2 frontman told the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee in Washington, DC, Tuesday that jokes could combat ISIS. “I think comedy should be deployed,” he said. “I am suggesting that the Senate send in Amy Schumer and Chris Rock and [“Borat” star] Sacha Baron Cohen . . . You speak violence, you speak [terrorists’] language. But you laugh at them . . . and it takes away their power.”

    While pandering in New York City, Hillary Clinton joined NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio in a poor effort at a humorous skit: Hillary Clinton performed in a racially tinged skit at an annual New York City press dinner as the controversy surrounding former president Bill Clinton’s defense of his wife’s “superpredator” remark continues to swirl. Clinton took the stage for a surprise appearance at Saturday’s Inner Circle Dinner and proceeded to needle Mayor Bill de Blasio for his belated endorsement. "I just have to say thanks for the endorsement, Bill. Took you long enough,” Clinton told her former campaign manager. “Sorry,...
