Classy guy that Jon Favreau, newly appointed director of speech writing for Obama. The following picture of Favreau groping Hillary and his fellow “Obama Staff” buddy, seemingly giddy giving “Hillary” some beer, surfaced briefly on his Facebook. As Obama’s main speechwriter, does Favreau think posting this picture on Facebook will somehow go unnoticed? Yeah, riiiiight.
Feast your eyes on the “Grope and Change“:
How long do you think it’ll be before the “immensely talented” wordsmith is checking the Classifieds? Any guesses? Answer: He gets a pardon! At least that is the Washington Post’s position. Moral equivalency makes all things justifiable.
Favreau is not the first campaign aide whose online presence has proved awkward. Last March, John McCain aide Soren Dayton forwarded an anti-Obama YouTube video to his private Twitter feed linking Obama with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, leading to his suspension from the campaign. And in 2007, two bloggers hired by former North Carolina senator John Edwards stepped down after blog posts they had written before he hired them became a subject of controversy.
Imagine the crime of posting an anti-Obama link to *gasp* Obama and Rev. Wright! From a McCain staffer no less!!! That’s another story.
Charles Barkley is running his mouth again. Tonight on the TNT halftime report of the Phoenix Suns-New Orleans Hornets basketball game, Charles and the gang couldn’t resist injecting derogatory comments aimed at Sarah Palin.
Discussing the Phoenix Suns’ bench, Ernie Johnson (E.J.) reminded Charles of his off-air comment about their “thinness.” Barkley pipes up, “I told Kennie off-air that their resume [the Phoenix Suns’ bench] is thinner than Sarah Palin’s!”
*Laughter, Laughter. Holding our sides. This snickering and guffawing is making us laugh so hard because we’re so clever and funny us ultra-liberals with our sexist language insulting a professional woman because we’re so smart we believe everything the media spoon feeds us. Ha, ha, we’re really zombies following our Dear Leader community organizer. No really, ‘cuz he has experience. and hope. and change.”
Then putting his hand to his brow looking off in the distance, E.J. chimmed in with the hilarious comment, “I can see Alaska from the set.”
*More laughter ‘cuz we’re so witty and original.*
You know, I love basketball and have enjoyed the TNT Thursday night games. The group is funny and make me laugh. But I watch TNT Thursday nights for basketball, NOT politics and certainly not sexist comments. As a Hillary Clinton supporter, Magic Johnson never made sexist comments about Hillary. I may be going out on a limb, but I have a hunch that it’s a party affiliation issue.
I just left a message with TNT and let them know that I watch the show for basketball, not political digs or sexist comments. Here’s the contact information if you want to let TNT know what you think:
TNT Viewer Comment and Question Line: 404-885-4538.
Agreement on issues is not required, but Palin merits respect.
It is dismaying that misogyny and sexism are so excessively marbleized into our daily interactions that some of us cannot even recognize their existence when confronted with it or when staring at it directly in the mirror.
