Saying that she's of the same ilk as another politician, but that the difference is that she wears heels, is not misogynistic.  Calling her a mental lightweight or comparing her unfavorably to someone like Kim Kardashian is also not misogynistic.  Words have meanings, learn to use them.

FTFA: For too long women in our society have been judged by their appearance rather than their accomplishments and made subject to the ignorant assaults of men

And then subby called her a "hottie".

What if you said that a particular candidate should be in the kitchen instead of in the white house or some such?  I mean, you could technically say that of either a man or a woman, so if you happened to say it about a woman it wouldn't be sexist, right?

/ sexist or not, it's certainly petty name calling.  Unless Kardashian has entered politics herself, I don't see why comparing a politician to her is relevant.

She's hot.  I'd vote for her.  As long as she's not stupid and/or derptastic.

I tend to vote against this sort of candidate on principle alone.

Ehhh..I'm not super comfortable with comparing someone to another person "..in heels". That's sort of the same thing as  McConnell calling his female opponent an "empty dress".  I also don't see why he had to compare her to Kim Kardashian- does she have a reality TV show? Is she married to a jackass?

Why not "she's a right wing hack who will not be good for the state".  Take the higher ground.

However, apologizing to Kim Kardashian is hilarious.

I do have to say, she apparently called the GOP "the party of old, white men", and propped up her femininity as a selling point.  It might be fair to say she opened the flood gates.

The mistake conservatives and libertarians keep making is that we try to be polite to the criminals and crazies of the left, hoping that they will grow up. They never do, and they assume our courtesy is just weakness. We think we can negotiate compromise with evil, but aside from the moral failure of that approach, the liberals never accept comprise - they just keep demanding more (the John McCain fallacy).

We don't want to become as dishonest and criminal as they are, but that means that we damn well have to learn to be just as tough, or more so.

It would make sense if he was implying that this person is not a capable politician (that she has as much business being in politics as Kardashian does)...  But then he reverses himself by saying that she's exactly like another GOP politician "in heels".  So, is she a capable politician or isn't she?  Taken together, both statements are sexist.  The third statement (apologizing to Kardashian) is amusing, but fails to explain away the sexism.

In order to hold the other party accountable for a flaw, you have to hold yourself to much, much higher standards.  This guy deserves the criticism and other Democrats shouldn't be defending him.

Yeah. If conservatives and libertarians are claiming to be "polite" to the left, I would really hate to see "rude" (but I'm pretty sure it involves firearms).

colon_pow: it's okay when they do it.



Actually, it's not.

Unless she's routinely described as 'one of the few sane, thoughtful Republicans' or 'pragmatic moderate', I'm sure she has plenty of horrible Repubby opinions that she can be fairly criticized for. "xxxxx in heels" attacks are stupid, no matter where they come from.
 
2013-11-26 05:04:09 PM
A three-term legislator? Seriously? What, did she get the job when she was 18?
 
2013-11-26 05:05:34 PM
Throughout the 2012 and 2013 election cycles, national Democrats launched repeated attacks accusing Republicans of using rhetoric they claimed was demeaning to women.

It wasn't really the rhetoric that was the main problem, though that wasn't great, it was the attempted legislation that constituted the "War on Women".

Jaymark108: But then he reverses himself by saying that she's exactly like another GOP politician "in heels". So, is she a capable politician or isn't she? Taken together, both statements are sexist.


Well, the third option is that the other GOP politician is not a capable politician either. So by comparing the two, he's not contradicting himself, but merely strengthening his argument.

To be honest, I have no opinion on this either way as I don't know enough about any of the parties involved.

Given that Palin abruptly left public service mid-term for a life of grifting and 'reality' television, I think anybody should be able to call her "snow Snooki" and still rest easy at night.

I agree completely, it is petty name calling and he should be remonstrated for it.  If she's that poor a candidate, it should be easy to win based on real issues.

It was an asshole thing to say, no doubt about it. Screw that guy.

But you gotta also love the fact that the story's first sentence is false ("New Hampshire Democrats" although it was one rep) and that the Weeners is "Nationally, libs are disgusting pieces of shiat and random stories of this nature justify this reputation." Thanks for reminding everybody who the bigger assholes are.

She actually has some good ideas and notions as an individual. Problem is it all goes out the window when she's campaigning at the state and national level.

Her self descriptive "claim to fame" if you will;
new generation conservative committed to reducing the size, scope and cost of the federal government

Quite the original statement huh?

Considering Americans have never heard that before I expect her to be on the Presidential ticket in the near future. Oh wait....

He went on to refer to her as "[Republican State Rep.] Al Baldasarro [sic] in stiletto heels" ...

Meh, that really isn't, either.

While I agree his comments were somewhat sexist, I also think that if femininity is off the table as a target, then masculinity should be as well... Women should stop trading on "old boys clubs" type remarks or playing on some idea that men are inherently clueless and self-serving and that being a woman brings you some greater capacity for empathy, understanding, and concern.

Either being a woman is an issue or it's not. You don't get to have it both ways.

It's like the stiletto heels remark. Does she wear stiletto heels? If so, then STFU. You don't get to try to trade on your looks and sexuality and then cry foul if you're called out on it.

"Pretty boy" politicians like John Edwards and Scott Brown take shiat for their looks. It's not sexist that glamour girl female politicians face the same. It's sexist if women are treated like fragile little porcelain dolls who can't handle "the game" the way men can and expect to get to play from the "ladies' tee."

Gah, it shouldn't be a Republican said _______ about a Democrate or a Democrate said ______ about a Republican woman.  How about you just grow up and look that this is an all boys club and stop saying or identifying the politician on her gender.  That is the real problem.  That is the only problem.  But hey, let's blame it on political parties.
