There's No Crying in Politics!

What the fuck? Did anyone see the video where Hilary got all choked up? Actually there are two; there is one where she gets her feeling all hurt when one of the newscasters informs her that the voting community doesn’t see her as being very likable. In that video she gets all choked up and tells the reporter that it hurt her feeling to hear that said about her. Seeing that Senator Hillary is seriously hurt by the comment, Obama tells Hillary that she is “likable enough”. I thought it was a very nice gesture, on Obama’s part, but of course some jerk said he was attempting to take a jab at her.
In this video, she gets all choked up about the state of the election and these bastard and bitches of the press deconstruct her tears and pretty much say that she was faking it for sympathy votes. Now why she would cry to help her candidacy is beyond me, seeing that one of the arguments against having a female as our Commander and Chief is the fact that “women are so damn emotional” (I’m not saying I agree with it, but we all know it has been said. Hell, one of my older sisters was saying it when we were in New York).
So, crying wouldn’t be advantageous to her plight in the least bit. If anything, I see it as being detrimental. Besides…..THERE IS NO CRYING IN POLITICS! There is lying, backbiting, deceit, affairs, scandals, whore-mongering, bribery and evening cursing, but there is NO crying in politics, Damn it. I think they even tell you this in the Constitution (or maybe it was the Bill of Rights).
At any rate, I will not belabor the subject too much, because the reality is that the woman has good reason to cry. Especially when you consider that Obama is about to hand her her ass in New Hampshire. At least that’s….

Maybe she's going for sympathy votes.

I saw it last night. My first thought was, "if you don't quit crying like a lil youknowwhat!"

Then as it went on, I just kept yelling for her to "man up dammit!"

Eventually I had to change the channel. Watching her lips quiver just pissed me off...even as it kinda tugged at my heart a li'l bit.

Ugh! Maybe she was PMS'g!

Oh and...You've been tagged...see my blog for details! hehehe

Now y'all know when we are having one of those PMS moments...not even God can stop us from crying, raging, or acting a fool...just saying.

One of the things I love most about Hil is that she's the consummate politician...she keeps it together and appears to be able to handle the boyz...how this ballin' came about is beyond me. That said, I do believe she is the RIGHT candidate for the job. Experience, connections, 8 years in the white house and a slew of international contacts have molded her into the next pres... Obama has the right idea, but sadly, he would spend 4 years spinning his wheels trying to fight the powers that be, combat racism and dodge bullets...hey...just keepin' it real.

Yall ladies know godd and damn well that Hillary Clinton went into Menopause way back in the time of Monica L. LOL. Stop playing.

Cocoa-You might be right, but we all gotta get our feet wet sometime. Whatever he learns, during his four years of spinning his wheels, may be priceless. Hell, the people in the House and the Senate may making him spinning his wheels regardless of how much experience he has. You know damn well that as a black man in this world, no matter what your experience you still end up having to prove yourself. Hell, I'm still waiting for someone to say he got into the White House because of affirmative action.

Perhaps it was a PMS. After all, I don't believe the just because the flow ends, the chemicals in the brain don't continue to respond as they always have.

I definitely believe her tears are part of a political move to gather some sympathetic voters. Then again, I still subscribe to most conspiracy theories so I think most every action is motivated by a hidden agenda.

MsPuddin said...

Her crying is such a catch 22. She may as well have leaned over and asked for a tampon. Great Hilary, way to lose power points…

One Man’s Opinion said...

Rodney, by your own admission you are crazy, so we can't be listening to you anyway. Besides, if it is PMS, why have we not seen any signs of it until yesterday?

Mspuddin, you comment was just wrong. I'm still cracking up over that "pass a tampon" remark. Glad you say it.....Hey, wouldn't that be a great political commerical. You have to stretch limos pull up nex to one another. The window roll down and you see Hillary in one and Barack in the other, and Hillary says, as calm as you please; "Do you have any grey tampons". How funny is that? LOL. okay, I'm gonna stop now.

Skinny Black Chick said...

Thanks for stopping by!!
Clearly, WE ALL feel the same way. She definitely just Howard Deaned herself. And I thought the Clinton machine had waaaay more political savvy than this. Just goes to show that they're desperate and reaching right now.

As far as the language...lol. I invite you to check out my very first blog post. I warned folks back in the day...

Passion is for people is serious business. In 2006 Howard Dean had it and the media said he was crazy possibly mental. The issue was that the MAN was on point and the best of all the Democratic Candidates. Now we see it starting all over again. For the longest the media totted Hillary as being a cold stuck up "Bitch". Now she is fishing for sympathy and people think she's WEAK.

Since when is "experience" a bad thing? Since when is showing "emotion" a sign of weakness? Since when is a "laugh" as sign of being condescending? Since when is being a "woman" a handicap? Since when is the person "cheated on" the bad guy for forgiving? Wake up people, you're in the Matrix!!

I hear this all the time and personally its the same old trivial BS. Where's Paris Hilton when you need her?

Eb the Celeb said...

She pissed me off with this one... She showed all kinds of weakness by doing that... that aint going to help her get sympathy votes. Its going to just prove to the people that were iffy about a women being in office that they were right and that we are too emotional to handle it. She really f' ed u the game by doing that mess

One Man’s Opinion said...

I wasn't mad at Hillary for crying, but I will say this....Just like you are never suppose to let them see you sweat, you should never let them see you cry. I think it takes a strong ass person to cry sometimes, but the reality is that people see it as weakness. It is just the world we live in. We know it, we adapt to it. This shit ain't new. So although I am feeling you Shazza, Hillary has been in the game long enough to know better. Her second she weeped people saw her weak and weiry and nobody want that in a president. Remember, perception is everything.

Mizrepresent said...

You are such a fool! Stop it, talking about Hillary went into menopause during Monica,lol! PMS lives forever!

Shazza Nakim said...

Well I guess her tears of passion and the lump in here throat had nothing to do with the bad food at that diner and more to do with getting those WOMEN at the table to get their BUTT in gear and bring home some Hillary bacon.

I''m telling you, the people who are Pulling the weak card are the one who are really sweating for a clue.

It's the Matrix yall, get unplugged.
