Remembering a 2008 Entitlement War

Such an innocent time it was in 2008 when Hillary Clinton was running against Barack Obama for the Democrat Party presidential nomination…

Ted Kennedy was still alive back then. Irony, however, was long dead and stinking. But eight years along, we’re getting many revelations about who is above and below whom on each level of the SJW hierarchy. Back then we found out where white women stood in relation to black people as a whole.


The Great Identity Politics War is like the Mother of all Pile-ups; I just can’t look away!

The latest salvo sees Ted Kennedy’s endorsement of Barack Obama cause New York’s NOW chapter to flip out.

Women have just experienced the ultimate betrayal. Senator Kennedy’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s opponent in the Democratic presidential primary campaign has really hit women hard. Women have forgiven Kennedy, stuck up for him, stood by him, hushed the fact that he was late in his support of Title IX, the ERA, the Family Leave and Medical Act to name a few. Women have buried their anger that his support for the compromises in No Child Left Behind and the Medicare bogus drug benefit brought us the passage of these flawed bills. We have thanked him for his ardent support of many civil rights bills, BUT women are always waiting in the wings.And now the greatest betrayal! We are repaid with his abandonment! He’s picked the new guy over us. [SNIP]

This latest move by Kennedy, is so telling about the status of and respect for women’s rights, women’s voices, women’s equality, women’s authority and our ability – indeed, our obligation – to promote and earn and deserve and elect, unabashedly, a President that is the first woman after centuries of men who “know what’s best for us.”

I suppose that the 70+% of black women who voted for Obama in the South Carolina primary aren’t really women. Or perhaps black women are too stupid to figure out that Hillary Clinton has their best interest at heart while Obama couldn’t possibly have that, being a tripod and all. And see how these tripods stick together?

Somewhere, Mary Jo Kopechne  is laughing uncontrollably.
