Hillary doesn't look like the family that Michelle wants in the White House

[Welcome knitters. Getcherself an account and educate us about knitting...]

Although watching her is like reading her thesis, about like a hangnail only worse

Michelle
"rolemodeling what families should look like"
then brings up Bill Clinton's infidelities in a speech at Southside Black Women's event:
"if you can't run your own house you can't run the white house"

White women and all women who have ever been cheated on by their spouses can crawl under the bus now.

I'm still pretty pissed to comment. There are also signs that are being made at Obama rally's that say

"If you can't keep Bill happy, you can't keep me happy"
Wow brings back fond memories doesn't it ladies? If you are too young to remember, then welcome to the universe where women are shamed for other's acts. Misogyny is great ain't it? especially when it comes with that twist of racism.

The staffers do nothing to discourage this.

If Hillary does get the nomination does anybody really think that the Obama clan will actually campaign for Hillary as Barry promised at the NC Jeff/Jack Dinner?

Don't hold your breath.

I've been around the block a few times. The first election I remember was Truman vs Dewey. I watched the 1952 Democratic Convention on TV gavel to gavel.

In all that time I can't recall any spouse of a candidate (of either party) who spewed out low down crap like Michelle Obama has in this campaign.

Michelle Obama, making significant contributions to the crudeness in our society.

.... so I think we need to give Michele Obama a break here. She hadn't learned what was acceptable in national/Democratic political discourse, and AFAIK, she hasn't repeated that sentiment.

like a really angry woman to me. Saw her on c-span yesterday from a Fri. event and you could feel the hostility dripping out. It was like passing someone who had doused themselves in very strong perfume.

Angry black people. Please, kc. Think again.

And am I angry? You better fucking believe it. Being angry is OK, I hope. It depends on what you're angry about.

No. In fact I would not be surprised if he pulls a Lieberman.

Once again, someone asserts that women are responsible for the behavior of everyone around them, while men aren't even responsible for their own.

As for Senator O. being peeved about the constant questions about his character and judgment: Dude! Whiskey-tango-foxtrot?? Have you not paid (extremely vile string of invective) attention to national politics since the Reagan years? This is what happens when you put yourself on this stage. Nobody forced you to go up there. You chose. Get off your high horse, grow a thicker skin, and start fighting the battles that matter to the rest of us. Sen. Clinton learned this lesson a long time ago, which is one humongous reason I'm in her camp. (Another is the misogyny, see paragraph #1.)

didn't mean angry black people. Guess I should have been more definitive--my sense was of a woman who was angry about having to keep explaining why her husband was 'awesome.' It felt sort of like 'why don't you all get this?'

... on the same thing, or, what I thought was the same thing. Sorry about that..

... (not the LA band, but people who actually knit) would come over here and talk about knitting. Fits in with the winemaking and gardening....

since we did a donation drive. Everyone who donated got to participate in a yarn swap. I got a huge bag of yarn today. It's exciting. Maybe we'll come talk about our projects then.

And I'm sure a series of knitting posts would be welcome.

From a geekie, techie perspective, knitted garments are very interesting data structures.

Nice to see you!

Lambert, why din't you say so? Knitters know about the organization and the community-building and the resources thing, plus one's stash depends on how much it costs to spin and ship fibers across the world.

Now the interesting posts might be about folx doing their own shearing/harvesting and spinning. Self-reliance and all that....

As for me, I could only contribute stuff about crochet, 'cause that's how I roll.

so that's why we won't be able to see the Knitters for Hillary posts without joining. It's all good, though; Ravelry's a cool place to be.
