Does any of this relentless Hilary Rosen bashing from both the right and the left

smell like classic lesbian bashing?

This whole two day charade is so full of dog whistles that my head hurts.

1. yes it does

the key points should be is why rmoney's wife has any credibilty on economic issues when she does not have clue one about them and has never had to worry about money one day in her life.

4. As a guy, I never thought about the..

 

bash a lesbian angle.

I'm sure Ann Romney has lots of rich lesbian friends, there's got to be lots of them out there who adopt children and have children of their own, and are rich, right??????????

I have never met one, but I'm sure that they are out there, just like all those "working moms" who never have to go to a salaried or hourly work job to get a real $ paycheck.

6. Why would a right wing anti gay hyper religious person like Ann keep friendships with

'lots of lesbians'? That's one hell of a strange concept. And um, I'm a guy so that's not much of an excuse....

7. I bet Ann Romney has met thousands of lesbians

 

and I also bet she has no idea she ever shook their hands!

My post was kind of in jest, for Ann, she has no clue, and yes, there are indeed a few rich lesbians in the world, but I doubt many of them are Republicans. Hillary Rosen, case in point.

5. Of course it does. And the huge hypocrisy on 'our side' around this would make me ill

except that it is just what they are and who they are, and it is not going to change. They nurture their ignorance. It is part of them. I'm disgusted with the entire DC culture.

10. I just watched the Wolf Blitzer beat down.

The White House sent this into extra news cycles with their lesbian punching. Can't wait until they (OFA) calls to ask me for money.

I think that is certainly a factor in all of this.

11. If I made negative comments

about her work for the RIAA, would I be lesbian bashing?

Sometimes it's about what people say and do, and not just about their orientation, their gender, their race, or their economic circumstances.

12. I missed the news that HR was a lesbian.

I think the whole story is being overplayed...milked to the point of becoming nonsense.
