Fuck you, Mr. Edwards

"I think what we need in a commander-in-chief is strength and resolve, and presidential campaigns are tough business, but being president of the United States is also tough business," Edwards told reporters Laconia, New Hampshire.

This, in response to Hillary Clinton getting almost teary talking about her country.

Now, I'm no great Clinton-lover, but this comment by Edwards is below the cooter. That's worse than just below the belt. He deserves nothing short of a feminist ass-kicking for going there. I mean, really, John? I'm fairly certain Hillary could fuck you up pretty easily.

Hillary getting choked up about her country is actually a point in her favor, in my opinion. And you, sir, are just a desperate douchebag hoping the cool kid picks you to be on his ticket.

I have been really angry about this whole ordeal. It's not just Edwards, but the entire media's treatment of this. It feels like the whole campaign everyone has been saying she is too cold, too dry, too policy-oriented. She finally shows a bit of emotion and now she is hysterical and weak

I expected the treatment she got from the media, but I expected better from John Edwards. Don't know why.

If Hillary is the nominee, I will gladly cast my vote for her because at least I know she gives a shit about the country. Or that she's a really good actress. But I don't think that was acting. She's pretty transparent, for which she gets chastised sometimes, but you would think it would help make the case that her sentiments yesterday were genuine.

Just another day on the front lines of the feminist battle...unfortunately.

Hey GB, off topic, but could you shoot me an email? I want your (snail-mail) address so I can send you something (nothing too exciting, just something that I wrote).
