Iron my shirt? You have to be kidding me...

Honestly, I would not have believed how idiotic some men are had I not watched the video of one or more yahoo yelling "Iron my shirt" to Hillary Clinton at a public forum. The blantant sexism is disturbing and I can't help but wonder how much larger of a media story this would be if a similar group of yahoos yelled something like "park my car" to one of the other minority presidential candidates. A curtsy to Brietbart.tv for this story.



While this is not going to make me magically a Hillary supporter it has given me something to consider should things change before Ohio...I think those who are trying to imply this was some type of a staged deal by the Clinton campaign are really stretching. Ironic how far people will go to justify their own inaction...

I don't know whether this was staged or not, though it's suspicious that these two yahoos were able to get through Clinton's security detail like that, and get front row seats. Even if it wasn't a plant, it shows that Hillary seriously needs to get her act together as far as security and event management.

My guess is probably, it's a pair of attention-seeking idiots. And this story is getting far too much attention. I used to like Hillary, though I now oppose her bitterly for many reasons. (Iraq, her open corporatism, support of offshoring US jobs and so forth.) Obama is currently my candidate, though Edwards has been attracting my attention as well.

Wankers. They should know that real men iron their own shirts.

I find it hard to believe it was a plant. I think it would hurt more then it could help. She may get some sympathy or support for this one instance, but it only reinforces the opinions of idiots and people bordering on ignorance that women cannot be leaders or have powerful positions.

I just found out that the two guys were interns for a local radio show in Boston. It was a stunt and now more people are talking about it and it's on You Tube and that radio show is a hot topic because of this stunt.

Was it stupid? Maybe, but radio stunts have been around for ages. Why are we surprised and shocked?

Unfortunately I am not surprised or shocked. I am more disgusted that we are such a simple people that this works to get attention.

I would like to see them at an Obama event asking him to pick their cotton.
