Random Tidbits - Sexism and Perjury





John McCain - At a recent rally, the Republican presidential hopeful was asked by a supporter, "How do we beat the bitch?" in reference to Hillary Clinton. McCain laughed and then responded that that was an excellent question. Classy guy huh? (Side note--It's sad that the question came from a woman and that because Hillary is strong and opinionated automatically she's a bitch. What a world).

Barry Bonds - The record-breaking baseball player was indicted yesterday on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. Bonds is accused of lying to a grand jury by saying that he did not knowingly take steroids. He faces a maximum of 30 years in prison. Not a good look for black sports figures these days--first Michael Vick.....

I may not be a Hillary fan, but WTH? I can't believe its 2007 and people are still making comments like that.

What's worse is the woman who said the comment is a woman who held a high position in her company (I think in adversting) and even worse, when interviewed about her comment she made it sound like Hillary was the devil incarnate! Can we say the woman was TRIPPIN'?!!!
