I saw this video last night over at Tim’s blog. It got a LOT of comments- be sure to check it out.
In short: two long-time Democratic women from Central Ohio go on O’Reilly and threaten to leave the party and vote for John McCain if the Democrats don’t choose Hillary as their nominee.
We knew this was coming– but I didn’t think it would be so bad. It is really painful to watch- and not just because Kimberly Meyers has obviously never been in front of a camera before.
Meyers and Ruccia argue that the Obama campaign is being sexist but, when O’Reilly asks for an example, they are completely unable to come up with even one. They threaten to boycott the party. They blame Hillary’s demise on everyone they can think of. Except, of course, Hillary.
And the whole time O’Reilly has a big grin on his face. He is SO happy to have two Democratic women embarrass themselves on his show while accusing the soon-to-be Democratic presidential nominee of being a sexist bastard.
Obviously this whole thing hasn’t been well thought out. Otherwise they wouldn’t be considering giving their vote to a guy who divorced his first wife to marry a younger, richer woman.
A guy whose supporters openly called Hillary a bitch.
A guy who wants to take away reproductive rights from women.
I understand they are angry. Their nominee isn’t going to be selected and that hurts. But this is NOT the way to handle it.
