Ted Kennedy Doesn't Care About Women


So, New York feminists -- who if I know anything about my adopted home probably count Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda among their upper echelon -- are accusing Edward Kennedy of betraying them by endorsing Barack Obama for president.

The New York chapter of the National Organization of Women, apparently freed up from having to cook dinner, issued an official denouncement of Teddy the Red-Nosed Senator yesterday.

"Women have just experienced the ultimate betrayal. Senator Kennedy's endorsement of Hillary Clinton's opponent in the Democratic presidential primary campaign has really hit women hard."

Yes, yes.

Because killing a woman wasn't enough of a slight.

(Please note that in the interest of good taste, I excluded a joke which referred to the National Organization of Women as "NOW -- as in 'Now shut up and go do the dishes.'" It's okay -- you don't have to thank me.)

He didn't want to endorse Hillary because he thought her campaign was dead in the water.

What? What the..? 'Good taste'? At the Malcontent? Who are you and what have you done with Chez?

As far as NOW is concerned, if the dead woman acted like she enjoyed sex with men, she doesn't count.

oh how i detest NOW. what a bunch of manipulative, bitter, selfish, nazi feminist PRICKS. if you think that's bad, you should see what they have to say about fathers' rights (not only should he not have any, if it were at all possible for him not to exist, that would be even better - provided he could still somehow make sure women get all his money). it is a group i'd give anything to stop.

If we could just figure out a way to get Ingrid Newmark of PETA to join NOW, then fill the whole damn place with hyenas, we might have something.

I'm pretty sure John Stewart once said something to this effect:

The people on the left, and on the right, who scream the loudest and get heard the most, do so because basically the rest of us HAVE SHIT TO DO.

That's how I feel about NOW and their ilk. Kitchen work, bathroom work... Hell, people, go build your own island out of plastic bottles like that one guy and float it into the Gulf of Mexico during hurricane season...

PETA is headquartered right down the street from me. I'll get right on that. Do you know where I can get hyenas?

Chez said...

Thomas --

See previous column on John Gibson & GLAAD.

No, you assholes, Ted Kennedy's endorsement of Obama wasn't an insult to all women -- just one woman, Hillary.

That Ingrid Newmark documentary disturbed me greatly. I made the comment afterward that I'd like to see her eaten by a grizzly bear.

Hyenas, grizzly bear.
Tomato, Tomahto.

Maybe he just isn't attracted to her? Maybe he is attracted to Barak?

Please note, NOW isn't complaining about Caroline Kennedy, a well-known and life-long woman, who also endorsed Obama. I guess it's harder to claim that she hates women, though I have it on good authority that she routinely punches herself in the ovaries.
