"This one's for the girls, who love without holding back, who dream with everything they have."

TalkLeft puts up this pro-Hillary music video:



"This one's for the girls, who love without holding back...." At what point in the song did you start thinking of the girls the Clintons don't want you to think about, the ones Hillary wasn't for? If you reached 1:39 without thinking of Monica Lewinsky, you might be a Hillary Clinton voter.

You know, I feel cheated that I can't have a happy 4 minutes of easy feminist warmth gazing at these images. I would have liked to feel a glow of excitement over the first strong woman candidate for President. But Hillary Clinton sold out women to build and salvage her husband's power, and I am disgusted by her efforts to use us now.

First!

Love without holding back, dance like no one is watching....sounds like a Match.com profile.

Amen, sistah!

Hillary sold out long before she had to salvage Bill.

If a woman is to be president, let us get an experienced woman. Hillary talks about thrity five years of experience, but will not or cannot cite one single accomplsihment that has had an impact on public policy, let alone thirty five years worth. She is a cipher.

Now, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, or on the other side, some of the Republican elected women who have been in office for awhile would make better candidates.

Oh, and Hill ain't a girl no mo!

Memeorandum has about a half-dozen pieces by TalkLeft & Taylor Marsh touting HRC as the feminist candidate. Looks like the weak-end crew of memeorandum pitches its usual southpaw curve balls.

Now that the Big Dog has slipped his leash, we'll see more from the likes of Ickes and the gruesome twosome at the top will go for Barack's groin area.

If you don't get all a-googlely over politicians, you won't get "disgusted" with them.

We're not electing a friend or relative, but someone who can go eye-to-eye, toe-to-toe with dictators like Putin and Ahmedinejad.

The question is...can she do that?

Notice also, amid the tediously repetitive, yet throbbing Martina McBride beat, what she promises...Universal Pre-K....who's going to pay for that?

crap!

i stayed home, baked cookies, and had boys.

you can research all that in my msn archives which dont exist, my flickr account, and my youtube account.

that covers the big two and dangling participle. if you want to really see a broken heart go to my apple archive, but i wont identify with gender or race.

There's some country song about

writing letters

I guess Ill see you in the mirror when youre a grown man

PS, go hug Aunt Rita every chance you can

And, oh, you got so much going for you, going right
But I know at seventeen its hard to see past Friday night
I wish youd study Spanish, I wish youd take a typing class
I wish you wouldnt worry, let it be
Hey, Id say have a little faith and youll see

rhhardin said...

I'm still laughing. Feminism is in trouble.

The troop shown didn't look like he wanted to come home.

Lots of homely girls in the film, babies at critical points.

Hillary is the prettiest woman in the whole clip. Did anybody notice?

But where is the picture of Hillary rolling a fighter inverted in preparation for a strafing run. Something for the guys.

George said...

Re: Monica...you know the HIllary camp doesn't want anyone thinking about McBride's first hit ten years ago..."Independence Day"...about a mistreated wife who kills her husband...sets him and their home on fire.... (And somehow the wife is like Jesus, according to the lyrics, for burning the guy to death....)

i.am cranky.

AJ Lynch said...

Yeah Reader nails Althouse with a frigging bullseye!

Ann Althouse said...

"Reader.I.Am," never post here again. You are hijacking the name of one of our most valued commenters. That is despicable.

Ann Althouse said...

That is not reader_iam, everyone.

Ann Althouse said...

If you want to argue for Hillary, go right ahead. But you are not helping her at all by using underhanded, deceptive tactics.

garage mahal said...

If you reached 1:39 without thinking of Monica Lewinsky, you might be a Hillary Clinton voter.

Most normal people probably didn't think of Lewinsky during that clip, and yet you did. That train left years ago Ann, get over it. It's not healthy.

Jeff with one 'f' said...

Isn't the "love" concept in the video kind of sexist and stereotypical of how women are supposed to make decisions, with their "feelings" rather than their reason?

How does this video do anything to remove my suspicion that Hilary would be "President of Women" first and foremost?

nansealinks said...

counting down the seconds till Obama does something to these lyrics:

Love that gal's dress.

Ann Althouse said...

"That train left years ago Ann, get over it."

Oh, I'm getting over it. The fever is breaking. I think I'll be completely well in about 10 days.

caplight said...

The irony in this is the one who has been her ticket to the top all her life is also the one who one way or the other has screwed her and her chance of of being at the top herself. In the end Bill screwed her like he did every other woman he touched.

garage mahal said...

Problem is you can't get over it, you'll be projecting your moronic Dowdish filth as long as you live. It's who you are. Just don't try to deceive us that it's in the name of feminism you object.

And really, a fever? You are "sick" indeed.

Bissage said...

Most normal people don't visit blogs they dislike.

It's not healthy.

Think about it.

She said...

THAT'S the Hillary camp's answer to the awesome emotional propaganda of will.i.am's "Yes We Can"?!

Lame.

ricpic said...

Only women who have their own man, their own protector, are free of her evil seduction.

titusisgay said...

You need to get over your hate of Hilary. Move on, hate will kill ya. I can't stand George Bush so I just tune him out. Tune her out Helga.

Now take a deep breath and say Namaste. Don't you feel better?

titusisgay said...

Also, the Hilary postings are becoming redundant.

We got it the first 100 times you did one of these postings.

Mortimer Brezny said...

This video is a perfect example of why I would never vote for Hillary Clinton.

So, in other words, you want to believe, but you can't, so you lash out at the person you want to believe in and her allies whenever the opportunity presents itself. Interesting phenomenon. Not a pretty sight, but interesting nonetheless.

blogging cockroach said...

you know as a cockroach my two biggest worries are
getting something to eat
and not getting squashed
as for the former i really like it when
a meatball gets dropped behind the stove
as for the latter i avoid being out and about very much
extrovert cockroaches usually have a short life
and another thing that im sure will improve my chances
of not being squashed
is to sing hillarys praises every chance i get
look whats happened to people who didnt sing mrs clintons praises
don imus springs to mind but hes not alone
theyve been squashed right and left
so for me its hooray for hillary
hillary we love you
hillary is for girls everywhere
etc etc
looking at that wonderful video also helped solve
my first problem i e dinner
i think i could just skip it tonight
as my stomachs a little queasy
if you know what i mean

Jim said...

Doubtless, this theme would never, ever be used in a general election. Nevertheless, is the author aware of how annoying this song is the average ESPN-watching American male?

Roger said...

The answer to every Clinton misdeed is: Get over it and Move on. Fortunately looks like a whole lot of democrats are moving on, and the liberal media appears to be moving on. The Clintons can go back to their single wide and join the rest of the trailer park trash.

Clinton did two things of note in his presidency: NAFTA and welfare reform. And one suspects that both of those were made possible by the republican take over in 1994in turn made possible by hillary and healthcare. Other than those, his legacy will be forever a stained blue dress and his televised "I did not have sex with THAT WOMAN----"

michaele said...

"...and dance like no one is watching"...ha, like the ridiculously fake dancing alone on the beach scene the Clintons staged for photographers right before the Lewinsky stuff broke out. Frankly, the stunning phoniness of that sealed the deal for me on the Bill and Hillary show. It seemed so transparently desperate and yet, at the time, I couldn't figure out why she'd let herself be caught by cameras in a swimsuit.

Watching this BHillary campaign is like watching a train wreck in slow motion. I just can't look away. It's painful but yet I gape. My pity for Hillary assuages my conscience.

Keep writing them, Ann

rhhardin said...

Oh, say, here's a Hillary video that puts her neck and neck with Obama in the ``mind of jello'' category.

Word.

Blake said...

What's (really, really) tired is reading people whine about the posts. Don't like the subject matter? Skip it!

It's almost like Nielsen for the blogging set.

Shawn Levasseur said...

"If you reached 1:39 without thinking of Monica Lewinsky.."

I didn't even start the video. The still frame alone made me think of her.

The Clinton's marriage is none of my business. It's not yours, either.
