Hillary Camp Feigns Outrage At Pimp Crack

From the Boston Globe (and MSNBC via YouTube):

Clinton camp angry over disparaging of Chelsea

by Foon Rhee, deputy national political editor

February 8

The Clinton campaign and its allies are up in arms about a comment made by a cable TV political show host that Chelsea Clinton is being “pimped out in some weird sort of way” by making appearances for her mother on the campaign trail.

David Shuster has been temporarily suspended from NBC news broadcast and will reportedly apologize this evening on air for the remark he made Thursday evening on MSNBC.

His guest, radio talk show host Bill Press, immediately defended the former first daughter, saying she wouldn’t be campaigning if she didn’t want to. “Give Chelsea a break.”

Today, the Clinton camp threatened to boycott the cable network. And this afternoon, EMILY’s List, which raises money for female candidates, weighed in.

“I’m sending this letter today to let you know that the misogynistic pattern in the reporting by your network must come to an end,” Ellen Malcolm, the group’s president, wrote to MSNBC News Senior Vice President Phil Griffin. “I know I speak for millions across this country when I demand that you take immediate steps and publicly tell us what you will do to eliminate this sexist and demeaning culture that has become so pervasive in your network.

Malcolm mentioned that Chris Matthews, host of “Hardball” on MSNBC, recently apologized to the former first lady after suggesting her political career had been made possible by her husband’s philandering.

“Your tolerance for this behavior speaks volumes about the corporate culture of MSNBC,” Malcolm continued. “If you refuse to take action, women across the country, viewers, sponsors, and consumers can only assume your implicit endorsement of this type of sexist commentary on women and repugnant treatment of our children.”

Well, aren’t the Clintons using Chelsea for their political gain?

Indeed, haven’t we been told by Clinton insiders that Chelsea was only conceived in order to help with the Clintons’ image and his re-election as Governor in Arkansas?

And remember how she was called back to DC for family photo-ops after the Lewinsky revelations?

And of course we all know how highly Bill Clinton upholds the sanctity of womanhood.

So why the pretend outrage?

By the way, is MNSBC the same network that carries Keith Olbermann? Has he ever been suspended for, say, ripping apart an Ann Coulter doll?

Just kidding. Of course he hasn’t and would never be.

By the way, as a cultural indicator note that:
