Weekend giggle: Pussy hysteria

The RNC uses images and audio from 1964's Goldfinger, where not only Bond but the CIA gets to play, to tweak Liar Pelosi and Hapless Gibbs. For a brief 3 seconds (at .40) SanFranGran is shown side-by-side with Bond villainess, Pussy Galore, and all kerfuffle breaks loose.

The RNC video, which begins with the speaker’s head in the iconic spy-series gun sight, implies that Pelosi has used her feminine wiles to dodge the truth about whether or not she was briefed by the CIA on the use of waterboarding in 2002. While the P-word is never mentioned directly, in one section the speaker appears in a split screen alongside the Bond nemesis – and the video’s tagline is “Democrats Galore.”

The wisdom of equating the first woman speaker of the House with a character whose first name also happens to be among the most vulgar terms for a part of the female anatomy might be debated – if the RNC were willing to do so, which it was not. An RNC spokesperson refused repeated requests by POLITICO to explain the point of the video, or the intended connection between Pelosi and Galore.

But what isn’t open to debate is that the waterboarding conflict has been accompanied by a cascade of attacks on the speaker, not as a leader or a legislator, but as a woman.

First off, we can probably question why little Ms. Andie's editorial is listed in the "news" section of Politico. Secondly, we can then wonder where Ms. Andie was when Her Lord and Savior Obama was (using her metric of OUTRAGE over teh sexism) much less subtle in calling Sarah Palin a pig and flipping the bird to Hillary Clinton.

Taylor Marsh hyperventilates

That a woman, let alone Speaker of the House, should never be hinted to in any public way through the use of “Pussy” insinuations should be obvious.
OMG!!! Never, ever, ever, ever show any [Left Authentic] female with one of these!!! OMG!!! ELEVENTY!!1!!! Somebody (like Taylor) might have to reinterpret it to mean Awful Things that Prove Non-Leftists Are Evil.

Taylor leads off her little hissy fit with this gem

At the end it says “Democrats Galore.” Imposed with a naked woman behind the tag line.

Uh, if Taylor thinks that showing, from the back, a picture of a woman's shoulders, including clothing straps, constitutes teh nekkid I have a lot of questions for her.

But she is refusing comments.

Maybe Taylor and Andie should have coffee (but only if Andie wears a burka so as not to offend Taylor with her nekkidness).

Obama neither flipped off Clinton nor called Palin a pig. You are a certifiable loon.

In the original, it was Bond in the gunsight and then the screen turns red, because presumably Bond got the shooter first. So this ad is saying the RNC had Pelosi in its sights but she was too quick and the RNC ended up getting killed. Sounds about right.

Correctamundo Josh. The Lightworker leaves that kind of dirty work to shitstained meth-addict libtrolls like you.

Kiss your mother with that mouth, Mikey? Because I sure do.

I hope you have good medical insurance, Josh, if you're kissing that moron's mom....

the cool thing is, she's also his sister!

Anyway, as always, I love how Darleen equates events in her mind (like her lipstick on a pig bs) with events which actually occurred, you know like Republicans ACTUALLY insulting a woman. Whereas St. Palin is too fragile, too porcelain for imagined insults which happened in Darleen's brain, Nancy's apparently fair game for mass-produced misogynistic slurs! Maybe Darleen can just bust out the ol' C-word on Nan?

Ahh, Darleen, if she isn't punishing grad students and discussing how her children thankfully are graduating college without learning anything, she's protecting Palin the wonder candidate and frothing at a better woman (you know, someone who actually reads a newspaper).

Damn, will I ever find any honest to goodness discussion here? You sound like a bunch of kids!

And will you stop lumping people together? Not all republicans are the same. Democrats don't hold the same beliefs either....\

Either way, anyone who is unwilling to discuss ideas... now stick with me here.... and listen! Oh man, what a novel idea. To think, every thing I believe may not be true! Oh, such a tragedy.

Bah... Anyway, attacking Pelosi or now Palin is ridiculous. I do believe that Pelosi knew what was going on, but I have no proof. Do I hate her? No. I thought it was a great accomplishment for her to become the first female speaker of the house. Congrats. But don't lie.

I know, I know... All politicians do.

And the attack on Palin and her family by Letterman was unwarranted. It was distasteful at best. I don't expect him to resign however. I just hope he watches his mouth in the future.
