Ready for [Insert Name Here]: Some Lunatics Offended by Granny Clinton Being Referred to By Her First Name

Posted by on Apr 08, 2015 at 7:38 am

These people truly have too much time on their hands. We suppose calling her Grandma, The Pantsuit or Monica Ex-Boyfriend’s Wife would be preferable.

We can work with that.

There’s Beyoncé and Madonna, Cher and Prince. And now Hillary.

It may not be exactly the same as the long list of celebrities known by their first names. But Hillary Clinton has become known simply as Hillary in bumper stickers and headlines, on Twitter and Facebook, around water coolers and in coffee shops.

Yet some Americans, mostly women, don’t think the former secretary of state, U.S. senator from New York and first lady should be called by just her first name.

“I think it’s pretty unjust,” said Monica Warek, 23, on a recent visit to Washington from New York City. “I think it shows the level of inequality that still exists in the workforce and just in general in society.”

So a woman who’s been an utter failure at everything she’s ever done is seemingly a shoo-in for the White House and she’s a victim of inequality. Got it.

Kathy Sullivan, a Democratic activist who co-chaired Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign in New Hampshire, said she has long noticed that women politicians in her own state are called by their first names. The first-in-the-nation presidential primary state boasts a female governor and an all-female congressional delegation to Washington.

“It has nothing to with political party,” Sullivan said. “It reflects a tendency of some people, but it may be totally unconscious.”

People don’t even realize how evil they are. So we should elect this shady woman to prove otherwise. Makes total sense.

Deborah Tannen, a linguistics professor at Georgetown University who referred to Clinton in her book, “Talking from 9 to 5: Women and Men at Work,” said Clinton may be called by her first name in part because “Hillary” is more distinctive than common female names such as Susan or Mary. (Clinton’s mother had said she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary, a New Zealand explorer who with Nepalese Sherpa mountaineer Tenzing Norgay became the first climbers to reach the summit of Mount Everest. In 2006, her aides said that was not true.)

Because she was exposed as an obvious liar. By they way, [expletive deleted], where are your emails?

    Go pound sand.

    Please Google for images of the bumper stickers that Hillary used in her last Presidential campaign. Most if not all of them say “Hillary.”

    Hey, I’m all for tying her to the rape legacy of her serial sexual abuser of her husband, who is the only impeached President since the invention of the automobile. Let us not forget all of the scandals tied directly to her actions and inactions: the “lost” Rose Law Firm, Whitewater, the WH Travel Office, the defended rapist she admitted was actually guilty, her legal improprieties during her time in the Watergate investigations, the slandering of her husband’s victims, and the fact that she was the very first First Lady that had to be fingerprinted to solve a case of malfeasance in office.

    Then there was her husband selling pardons to help her get elected to the Senate, the fact that she never introduced any sort of meaningful legislation, and topping off that illustrious non-career by violating the Constitution when she accepted the office of Secretary of State (specifically, Article I, Section 6, Paragraph 2 – she voted to increase the pay for Cabinet Secretaries during her term as a Senator, and is therefore ineligible to serve as one). Not to mention her biggest accomplishment in office being in a country most diplomats couldn’t find on a world map. But she sure flew around a lot!

    So by all means, let’s pretend that calling this walking failure by her first name is the new scandal du jour.

    that candidate’s supporters
    spend SO MUCH time telling others
    what the CANNOT SAY about the candidate.

    It’s simple why they’re doing this.
    And confusing why they think it will work.

    They want her called “Clinton” so they can confuse the issue with Bill, as Bill actually has accomplishments.

    But the goal is to get people to believe a woman isn’t a person in her own right, simply an extension of “her man” so we should focus on Bill not Hillary when thinking “Clinton”.

    Of course they can’t admit they’re doing this, or say it out loud, or have any rational response why this is a good thing; as it’s a truly sexist outdated thought process no liberal would support.

    So they’re working for a subliminal angle; while having to hope nobody ever points it out, nobody ever notices, and nobody catches on.

    I can’t see that being a workable plan; the whole thing will fall apart if anyone anywhere pokes at it even a little bit.

    She’s “Hillary” to distinguish (and, let’s not forget, voluntarily distance) herself from Bill.

    Just like George W. Bush was “Dubya” to the nation to distinguish himself from his dad. (And to the left to treat him informally and mock him.)

    And Jeb Bush is “Jeb.”

    Seeing a pattern here with politicians from the same families? It’s not sexism.

    I refer to her as Mrs. Clinton, or if severely provoked, Mrs. William J. Clinton. I like to think it draws a little bit of attention to the fact that if she weren’t riding Slick Willie’s coattails, she would be some third-rate bureaucrat in the bowels of DC, still doing evil but on a smaller scale.

    I refer to her as “Her Hillary-ness,” in a totally sarcastic way.
    ’cause that’s the way I roll…
