Skip to comments.New York NOW Chapter SLAMS Ted Kennedy for endorsing Hillary's opponent

The National Organization for Womens New York chapter issued a scathing reaction to Sen. Ted Kennedys endorsement of Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton. Actually, the word scathing feels inadequate here.
Read for yourself:
Women have just experienced the ultimate betrayal. Senator Kennedys endorsement of Hillary Clintons opponent in the Democratic presidential primary campaign has really hit women hard. Women have forgiven Kennedy, stuck up for him, stood by him, hushed the fact that he was late in his support of Title IX, the ERA, the Family Leave and Medical Act to name a few. Women have buried their anger that his support for the compromises in No Child Left Behind and the Medicare bogus drug benefit brought us the passage of these flawed bills. We have thanked him for his ardent support of many civil rights bills, BUT women are always waiting in the wings.
And now the greatest betrayal! We are repaid with his abandonment! Hes picked the new guy over us. Hes joined the list of progressive white men who cant or wont handle the prospect of a woman president who is Hillary Clinton (they will of course say they support a woman president, just not this one). They are Howard Dean and Jim Dean (Yup! Thats Howards brother) who run DFA (thats the group and list from the Dean campaign that we women helped start and grow). They are Alternet, Progressive Democrats of America, democrats.com, Kucinich lovers and all the other groups that take womens money, say theyll do feminist and womens rights issues one of these days, and conveniently forget to mention women and children when they talk about poverty or human needs or Americas future or whatever.
This latest move by Kennedy, is so telling about the status of and respect for womens rights, womens voices, womens equality, womens authority and our ability indeed, our obligation - to promote and earn and deserve and elect, unabashedly, a President that is the first woman after centuries of men who know whats best for us.
What’s wrong? Is the fact that Obama is a heterosexual a big problem for lesbo nation? Hillary sures seems to be in their good graces.
Endorsing Obambi is worse than drowning one of their members .
LOL. The infighting is going to be something to watch.
Wow, everything but Chappaquiddic
Not to mention that women have buried their anger over the women Ted has buried!
The hypocrisy on display here is mind-boggling!
Just like NOW abandonded women when Bill Clinton, the impeached rapist, was president? Is that what it’s like? Better put some ice on it.
Like anyone cares about what the death pig beasts of NOW have to say anymore.
They can overlook a drunk, killing a secretary as he sped down to the beach to have his way with her, but this is the ultimate insult......
Mary Jo Kopechne was probably pro-life, so NOW doesn’t care that Ted killed her.
For those nay-sayers on this forum who don't think the Hildabeast is ALL about "women voting FOR women", purely as a sexist social statement, this speaks volumes.....
THAT is where the Hildabeast gets women's votes.........those purely voting for gender.
That would have been the ultimate.
Why did they forget to mention that he killed a girl?
They are irrelevant, too.
Of course, but amusing nevertheless.
