……and sexism……and racism……
At the recent Northern Kentucky’s 4th Congressional District Lincoln Day Dinner, Senator Mitch McConnell (Republican leader in the Senate)
said of Hillary Clinton:
“[She] seems to be ‘teetering on the brink.’
‘I hear she hasn’t been this worried since a new Hooters opened near her home with former President Bill Clinton,’ McConnell said, prompting laughs from the 400 Northern Kentucky Republicans.”
Blatant sexism was common in 1950’s America, but has no place in our 21st century world. This, incidentally, is the very same Senator Mitch McConnell of whom Bill Moyers recently said:
“….and the Republican leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, of Kentucky —I’m not making this up – has slipped into the [Farm] Bill a tax break for owners of race horses.”
Not to be outdone, at the same event Republican Geoffrey Davies
spoke out about Barack Obama, comparing him to a snake oil salesman:
“I’m going to tell you something: That boy’s finger does not need to be on the button,” Davis said.
This is a blatantly racist comment, more so when one considers Davies is only three years older than Obama.
Are these elitist goons truly the elected representatives of the American people? If so, it’s time the populace of this nation took a long hard look at its values and priorities.
Frankly, they are not worthy to sweep up the streets or clean toilets when they debase official functions in so vile a manner.
