GRL over at Insight Analytical has a new post up about a pundit who said the following…
Hillary’s job is to bring a casserole dish and to serve it with a smile.
Do anyone of these people even think about the connotation of their words? Seriously? In a campaign where the specter of sexism has reared it’s ugly head and raised it high, why do these people continue to bring up the most sexist imagery possible in their metaphors…
It makes me shudder to think what metaphors would have been brought up if Hillary had won, and Obama had to make nice…
CLICK HERE to read GRL’s article… it is fantastic!

HOLY CRAP - Fantastic Satire…
so here is the “story”….
Apparently she has a nephew that lives in NYC… This nephew happened to be walking by the GE/NBC building one night as Brian Williams was walking out the door. A note apparently fell out of Brian’s pocket as he jumped into a car and sped off.
The nephew, seeing the note fall out of Brian William’s pocket, picked it up, transcribed the contents and emailed a copy to GRL.
And Holy Crap is it greatness because if it’s real… holy crap. But it is just so bad that I don’t know… regardless, a hilarious read and very funny…. (and possibly real)
You can read it here, but here is a snippet for you
Heck, I know he’s not even the official nominee yet, let alone the President, but we all thought it would be nice to break new ground and cover the trip. Get sort of a preview of what might go on once he IS President. You know I’m doing all I can to make sure that happens! (SHHH, don’t let THAT get around!) Even though there won’t be any real news being made in terms of foreign policy, it will be fun to see Europe through Barack’s eyes. This will be almost as fun as when I interned and then worked in the White House when Jimmy Carter was there and Billy and Miss Lillian came for visits!
(I re-read it… this has gotta be satire… but funny as hell none-the-less.)

Just Brilliant… Everyone Should Read This.
Here is a snippet…
Senator Obama is running a dignified and honest campaign. He has spoken eloquently about the role of faith in his life, and opened a window into his character in two compelling books. And when it comes to judgment, Barack Obama made the right call on the most important issue of our time by opposing the war in Iraq from the beginning.
Caroline, were those your words then, and, if so, do you still think the same things today?
I know I certainly don’t think those same things… then again, I never did.
