Interesting Take On Tina Fey's Hilary Endorsement

This post says that Tina may not a true Democrat. Even if you are a Hilary supporter, Fey's logic was rather questionable and not even a very good attempt to be humorous.

Tina Fey: And finally, the most important women's news item there is.

We have our first serious female presidential candidate in Hillary Clinton, and yet, women have come so far as feminists that they don't feel obligated to vote for a candidate just because she's a woman. Women today feel perfectly free to make whatever choice Oprah tells them to.

Which raises the question: Why are people abandoning Hillary for Obama? Some say that they are put off by the fact that Hillary can't control her husband and that we would end up with co-presidents. 'Cuz that would be terrible, having two intelligent qualified people working together to solve problems. Ughh. Why would you let Starsky talk to Hutch? I wanna watch that show "Starsky."

You know, what is it, America? What is it? Are you weirded out that they're married? Because I can promise you they're having exactly as much sex with each other as George Bush and Jeb Bush are.

Then there is the scrutiny of her physical appearance. Rush Limbaugh, the Jeff Conaway of right wing radio, said that he doesn't think America is ready to watch their president, "Turn into an old lady in front of them." Really? They didn't seem to mind when Ronald Reagan did that.

I think what bothers me the most is when people say that Hillary is a bitch. Let me say something about that. Yeah, she is. And so am I. And so is this one [points to Amy Poehler].

Amy Poehler: Yeah, deal with it.

Tina F: You know what? Bitches get stuff done. That's why Catholic schools use nuns as teachers and not priests. Those nuns are mean old clams, and they sleep on cots and they're allowed to hit you. And at the end of the school year you hated those bitches, but you knew the capital of Vermont.

So, I'm saying it's not too late, Texas and Ohio. Get on board. Bitch is the new black!

Amy Poehler: Tina Fey, everyone!

Speaking of "deal with it" Obama got his momentem back! Deal with that!

I found it humorous, and engaging, and as far as logical...? It isn't meant to be taken as serious political commentary. It is meant to evoke a reaction. What she means is true, though. Women politics have a much harder go of it than men. If you didn't believe it with Clinton, look at the media storm surrounding Palin.

Sorry, but here in Washington, our two US Senators are women as well as our governor. The speaker of the house is a woman as well. It's really hard to see much in the way of discrimination. On the other hand, Black polititians are very rare. Palin's scrutiny is not her gender, but her lack of experience.
It is very similar to what D. Quayle went through in '92
