6 December, 2008

Sexism or ‘good-natured fun’? 

Campbell Brown calls out Hillary Clinton for her response to a photo of an Obama aide groping a cardboard cutout of her.

“A Clinton spokesman described the photo as an example of just good-natured fun between former rival camps. The Post quotes Sen.Clinton‘s adviser Philippe Reines as saying, quote, “Sen. Clinton is pleased to learn of Jon’s obvious interest in the State Department, and is currently reviewing his application.”


I’m sorry, but this is the same woman who, during the campaign, pointed to example after example of sexism directed at her saying that, quote, “It’s been deeply offensive to millions of women”?


Really, Sen. Clinton? Boy, have you changed your tune. You really think this photo is OK?”



I think Campbell Brown’s response covers it.  Don’t you?

Or is Hillary now a part of the team and unable to speak as an individual in disagreement with a fellow team member?

Try the photo another way here:

Then come back and let me know what you think.
