Senator Clinton Gets Benched

February 8, 2008
Over at Shakesville, Melissa McEwan has an entry about how a deck of baseball cards called “Presidential Predictors.” Right before mass distribution, Upper Deck decided the Clinton card may be too risqué, but not before one set escaped and made its way to ebay. While Senator Barack Obama’s baseball persona is represented by White Sox’s outfielder Jermaine Dye, a brave and strong and reliable MVP athlete who is expected to save the day by catching the hard and fast hits slammed his way, Senator Clinton’s persona is not of a player but a disruption. Clinton is caricatured as Morganna, the big-breasted bleached blonde too hot to cool bitch in heat who maniuplatingly slips pass security to ascertain a hunking hunking burning kiss from unsuspecting macho-hotties. Morganna metaphorically assaults/violates these players because everyone knows a baseball player would not be seen with a cheap cougar on his arm. Nothing but a trophy supermodel will do to camouflage all signs of possible homosexuality. To cool the jets of possible feminazi consumers Upper Deck decided instead of changing Clinton’s persona to an actual player, (I would recommend catcher), they would completely remove her from the deck. Because you see, baseball is a man’s game and women are just there to blow kisses and fetch beer so Billy Bob Matthew will not miss what is happening between plays, plays that are about forty-one minutes apart. So with one move, Senator Clinton is erased. If she cannot play the role of entertainment, she cannot be included as anything, certainly not a viable player. “I said pepperoni and Bud light woman, now git.”

Here is a very good comment in that thread that is worth copying:

The Hillary/Morganna card is particularly telling. Morganna was NOT a player, she was an interruption. She didn’t belong and distracted the people from the real game. Oh, yeah, what a convenient way to say that Hillary doesn’t belong with the big boys. I would love to see an Yvette movement start in the Democratic party. For those who don’t know- during the first Quebec referendum, a female cabinet minister said that the only reason that the Yes side would lose was if the older women acted like “Yvettes” (a mousy TV character who yes yesed her husband) and voted like their husbands. Within days rallies were organized, a movement was born. These weren’t ‘feminist’ women, many had born 12 or more children because their government and church had asked them too. That they could not be trusted with the fate of their nation burned. I was caught in a mob of them, dragging their adult sons by the ears to a rally. Their anger was palpable, you could taste it in the air. The yes side went from a firm lead to a resounding defeat. The contest between Obama and Clinton is making me taste that anger again. I don’t like the taste. At the end of the day, what I am hearing is that I can’t be trusted because I’m a woman.Hawise Homepage 02.08.08 – 1:34 pm

    Agree! Yvette! Yes!

    This is pretty disgusting… I hope Amazon is correct in commenting about a new woman’s movement. We surely need one. It is time for change but not the change the politicians keep preaching!
