Your attention please-To everyone freaking out about the Obama “women problem”:



Ben Cisco Says:

Your attention please.

To everyone freaking out about the Obama “women problem”:

PUT.THE.PIPE.DOWN. The Village is playing you. AGAIN.

There are plenty of political types in DC with a diversity problem – the group represented by the circled portion of this graphic come to mind – but President Obama is NOT one of them. Stop letting the GOP/FerengiMedia/”professional” left play you.

This sorry-ass meme is being perpetrated by the Village, including the non-primetime contingent of MSNBC. THINK ALREADY!

Protip: When your broadcast liberal outrage is coming from Mika “Stockholm Syndrome” Brezinski and Mrs. Alan Fucking Greenspan, you are being trolled for the GOP’s benefit.

2. Yeah, this is business of usual.

Accuse the other side of doing that THEY are doing. Some people fall for it and I think it's because as liberals, we are always looking to improve. So, we're like, "hey, yeah, we could do better here..." Which isn't bad, but it does tend to let the real problem makers off the hook.

8. Nickname for DC pundits

Basically, their lives are similar to those in a very small village. They're utterly uninterested in anything happening outside their circle of acquaintances.

As a result, you get a lot of things blown up into huge controversies that no one outside the village cares about. See: Lewinsky, Monica.

You also get a lot of things that the people really do care about that are ignored by the village. See: Jobs.

7. The irony is that the critics are from the

Vaginal probe, rape victim blaming crowd.
