We Interrupt This Blog

I'm just kind of speechless and infuriated all at once. I guess I should be used to this kind of crap by now, but I'm not.

From Media Matters:

On the February 3 edition of Fox Broadcasting Co.'s Fox News Sunday, panelist and New York Times columnist Bill Kristol said the only people supporting Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's (D-NY) presidential campaign "are the Democratic establishment and white women." Kristol then asserted that "it would be crazy for the Democratic Party to follow an establishment that's led it to defeat year after year," and added, "White women are a problem, that's, you know -- we all live with that." After fellow panelist Brit Hume responded, "Bill, for the record, I like white women," Kristol said, "I know, I shouldn't have said that."

WTF!!!! Are you KIDDING me with that? "White women are a problem, that's, you know-- we all live with that!" Well, geez, Bill Kristol, I'm so sorry you have to "live with that" but you know, if you had a fight or something with your wife before going on air, I hardly think you have to drag ALL WHITE WOMEN into it.

Anyway, I guess I should be oh-so-flattered that Bill Kristol doesn't include us brown women as part of the "problem," whatever "problem" that may be. But I have a feeling that if Bill met me, he'd probably have a problem with me. And that may or may not be because I'd probably give him a big old slap across the face.

America is going to be a better country when the older people die and the younger people get older. Some of these old bags just don't get it.

To be fair, Bill Kristol is a neo-conservative who is pretty much always wrong about everything. So, I don't think he's really indicative of older people. There are plenty of young people who are, unfortunately, just as bad. Kathryn Lopez comes to mind.

You are too funny. I often just ignore Kristol completely. I never understood why he had a podium at NYT. I respect people who have different political perspectives from mine. But I have no patience for people who are just unreasonable, ridiculous and pathetic.
