This reminds me of the Kerry/Bush debate where Kerry mentioned Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter. He didn't say anything negative, he simply mentioned
her to further articulate his point.
The next day, the administration is outraged that Kerry would attack the family of the vice-president. Bush condemned Kerry's words, yet during the
debate he didn't point out how Kerry shouldn't have said what he said? He didn't demand Kerry apologize? He didn't react in any way whatsoever
even as Kerry said what he said, but somehow Bush and the entire Republican Party found it offensive the next day.
So should Kerry have name dropped another lesbian? Would that lesbian have been offended at the simple mention of her name? He mentioned Cheney's
daughter because it was current events. His point would make sense to more people.
I don't have time to dig up video as I'm running out the door, but seriously people, it's making a mountain out of a molehill. Take something
someone said and SPIN
it until it becomes more important than an actual important issue. Like the war. Like health care.
Poor choice of words brought about by poor timing, or skillful choice of words brought about by good timing. Hot word being lipstick. But somehow
through the political game of telephone Obama is now sexist?
Talk about huge leaps.
