I had to think clearly on how I would craft my words to indicate that after learning that Hillary Clinton refused to appear at a rally with Sarah Palin, that I thought that Hillary Clinton was being chauvinistic towards Sarah Palin. Hillary’s behavior indicates that she wants no part of the baking, dinner cooking, baby having, dish washing segment of women. While I suppose Hillary Clinton defines a chauvinist as a man that expects a woman to cook and clean and have babies and wear skirts. Others may define a chauvinist as a person who fails to appreciate cooking, child bearing, dresses, and the beauty of being a woman, and the fact that women have just as much power in heels, perfume, and a dress as men have in any power play they may think of. Hillary would fall in the second category of folks. Hillary Clinton through her treatment of Palin has indicated that she has no respect and appreciation for a woman being a woman, and her definition of equality is a woman in pants. It is ironic that many of the women never actually picked up on Hillary Clinton’s scorn of regular women until Sarah Palin came along. We with the exception of the majority of black women [who suffer more from chauvinism and just bad treatment from their men more then any other group] were willing to support Hillary no matter what our backgrounds. However Hillary showed her scorn of that support when she refused to attend the same event as a regular woman chosen to be the VP for the Republican party. As women we were disgusted and angered by the jokes regarding Hillary Clinton’s pants and her male like attitude. We thought that these jokes were aimed at Hillary just because she wanted to touch the the moon and the sky. However with Hillary’s treatment of Palin we were shocked to realize that Hillary really thought like a man so much so to be a chauvinist towards women who baked cookies.
Arrange Palin’s last name in a different way and you get Plain, “plain old woman” with the hopes of a woman, the feelings of a woman, and the willingness to risk like the American Spirit. The thing that most women really admire about Sarah Palin is that she was able to transcend the elitist garbage put out my women like Hillary that just because you actually love and want to be with your husband, that you don’t mind cooking dinner, that you are willing to put on a short skirt and makeup, that you actually have lots of sex as indicated by your five children, you can still be somebody in life, and have aspirations. Unlike the democrats, the Republicans did not say oops being a normal woman is a mess up, lets put our hope in the youth, you’ve messed your life up. The Republicans said bring it on, if you’re up to the job let’s do it.
Many people have indicated that Hillary Clinton is working so hard for Barack Obama becuase she hopes to win if he loses the next round. Unfortunately, Clinton in her refusal to appear at a rally that Palin attended indicates that “no” she does not really want to be president because she does not want to represent all of us. Hillary is essentially saying louder than any words that she does not embrace the diversity of women out there no matter who or what they represent. I think the electorate is smart enough to realize that just because Hillary Clinton attends a rally with Sarah Palin this does not indicate an endorsement. Hillary Clinton had the opportunity to say that American stood strong on an issue no matter what their political party and instead chose to renege on an agreement because she did not want to be seen with Sarah Palin.
There are many issues and events that I believe Hillary Clinton should have pulled back on that would have showed her solidarity with women and would have stood as an example to all women that we are not door mats and should be respected but instead she’s made herself a door mat and has created a Theme Song for herself that’s Beyounces “Got Me Feeling Crazy Right Now” . The refrain is:
“Got me lookin so crazy right now
Your love’s got me lookin so crazy right now
Got me lookin so crazy right now your touch’s
Got me lookin so crazy right now
While normal women accept that all women have problems and subscribe that no woman should be judged or looked down upon. and continued to support Hillary, myself included. She returned the favour by snubbing a women that more women relate to than they do to Hillary Clinton. The majority of us want children, the majority of us want a husband that at least appears loyal, and most of us if we do have a loyal husband want more than one child. We subscribe to Fairy Tales, and Rags to Riches and while Hillary has achieved a lot more than most and has even been the ultimate Princess, the First Lady. I think the majority of us are more like Princes DI we are not going to stand for the *&%T, and our not going to stick around for fame and glory at the expense of our feelings, and our self respect. Unfortunately, Hillary Clinton has not subscribed to that philosophy and has made herself a perpetual door mat.
We all know what she went through with Bill in the Arkansas Governors mansion, what is it they say he would pretend to go for a jog, and have the Arkansas State Troopers meet him and escort him to a sexual encounter, and let’s not mention Monica and others. All of this is still OK, this is her personal life and it is nobody’s business what happens in her personal life, but in the least she should have announced a public separation from Bill for just a little while but instead she stuck around and who knows maybe it was worth it and maybe it wasn’t but the message she sent out by sticking with such a man is not a message I want my children to receive. While this is enough to give Hillary the ultimate door mat status. I think anything Bill did to Hillary can not come close to how she has been treated by the democratic party. Michigan actually gave Obama the undecided votes which comprised of votes for Edwards, Richardson, and anyone else, as well as the write in vote, as well as gave him extra votes based on Exit Polls. “EXIT POLLS” THEY TOOK HER DELEGATES AWAY BASED ON AN EXIT POLL. In addition Hillary was promised a roll call vote at the convention and it was never given, “NEVER GIVEN”. There are probably a lot more transgressions I can think of perpetrated against Hillary Clinton by the Democratic Party. Yet Dear Old Hillary is now campaigning for Barack Obama and refusing to appear with the Republican female VP. THIS IS A DOORMAT AND NOT THE WAY TO GET MY VOTE NEXT TIME> I WOULD HAVE BEEN SO MUCH MORE APPRECIATIVE OF HILLARY, IF SHE WOULD HAVE JUST DROPPED FROM THE SCENE. I think the lesson that Hillary must learn is no matter what social class, no matter what educational level or income that a woman owes herself self respect first and self respect does not have a look, it has a feeling deep inside of a woman that everyone recognizes.
While Hillary Clinton refuses to be seen publicly with a woman that exemplifies the old perfume commercial “Enjoli” everyone over thirty may remember the “Enjoli Lyrics:
“I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan. And never let you forget you’re a man. Because I’m a woman, Enjoli”
Hillary keeps campaigning for a man and a party that used back alley tactics to take away her chances of being president and refused to make her VP because he and they were not strong enough to do it. Whether Obama wins or loses, I will now think of Hillary Clinton in the light of the lyrics in “Crazy in Love”.
Got me looking so crazy, my baby
I’m not myself lately
I’m foolish, I don’t do this
I’ve been playing myself
Baby I don’t care
Cause your love got the best of me
And baby you’re making a fool of me
You got me sprung and I don’t care who sees
Cause baby you got me so crazy
