Elizabeth Warren is delivering a new book, whoch evidently will be target-rich. Let me highlight this howler:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren Reveals Obama Advisor’s Sexist Comments Toward Her
A new book authored by progressive icon Sen.Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) reveals her insider accounts of her interactions with President Barack Obama and his staff. According to The Boston Globe, which obtained an early copy of the book A Fighting Chance, Warren reveals a series of interactions with Obama and his staff that were at times tense and, on one occasion, borderline sexist.
Evidently the headline writer didn't want to dilute the impact by mentioning "borderline". So on to the border!
After legislation was passed creating the CFPB, Warren was informed that some named and unnamed advisors close to Obama opposed her as the nominee to head that department. One unnamed advisor to the president reportedly told Warren that her role would be a “cheerleader” for the new agency.
“I assume that was meant as a metaphor, but I had to wonder: Cheerleader?” Warren wrote. “Would the same suggestion have been made to a man in my position? I did not rush out to buy pom-poms.”
I deplore her sexism. Here is current Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid describing himself as a cheerleader for Hillarity! Here is former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott's bio, which includes a stint as a cheerleaer at Ole Miss. Among Presidents we can cite George 43's college and high school cheerleading effort, and here is a description of Wild Bill acting as a cheerleader for, hmm, Hillarity! again.
And lest you doubt, here is a story about the hard work and athleticism of the current crop of male cheerleaders at the University of Arizona.
After eight years of hearing every crutic of Obama denounced as a racist, who is looking forward to four (or eight!?!) years of "sexist"?
NOT THE DIRECTION WE WANT TO GO... Maybe the speaker was offering a tribute to Ms. Warren's native American heritage?
