The neckline sat low on her chest and had a subtle V-shape. The cleavage registered after only a quick glance. No scrunch-faced scrutiny was necessary. There wasn't an unseemly amount of cleavage showing, but there it was. Undeniable.
No, it is not lamentable that Hillary Clinton wore a lower neckline than usual (even if it was far from unprecedented). It is depressing that the Washington Post would see fit to comment that she did.
Don't get me wrong. I like visible cleavage as much as anybody. As far as I'm concerned, let's have more of it. But how will those of us who believe that political feminism has outlived its usefulness sustain that belief if one of the nation's leading newspapers insists on deconstructing Hillary Clinton's neckline?
One on my blog I conducted a similar survey of the curves of noted right wing cooze and lunatic Michelle Malkin...so I too have been guilty of that offense. Speaking of that particular wingnut cooze (not the others like Mr. Coulter etc.) Michelle ma belle really screwed the pooch when she went off on th shooting of an Iraq vet named Schrieken, saying it was a liberal commie peacenik and prospecting you usual suspects the eventual 'the liberal media would have gone nuts if a soldier killed a peacenik' bull. Turns out, as usual, she was engaged in the usual self-love undercovers. The shooter not only did not know Matthew Marren from the man on the moon, and he certainly did not know that he was in the military. (Schrieken was not in uniform when he was shot)The Prosecutor in the case said that; "Marren's final words were rambling, and there was no mention of the military, the war in Iraq, or the victim being a soldier." The Prosecutor went on to say that it was an act of "random violence." I'm checking now to see if the prosecutor was a liberal/gay/from above the Mason Dixon/did not graduate from Liberty University or Pat Robertson's "law school"/married to a feminist/refuses to watch Fox News. I'll get to the bottom of it. Fair and Balanced!!!
P.S. Hillary has cankles, so it was fortuitious the description was of nicklines and cleavage...
Yes, that WaPo piece was not necessary -- more imagery than I need. We should evaluate candidates on the (non-physical) merits.
CC - I am not that plugged in to new terminology, and had to go to www.urbandictionary.com to look up "cooze" and "cankles," but thanks for the additional slang. Learn something new every day. Anyone who posts that you don't add anything to this blog has no appreciation for linguistics.
From this source:
Bloggers, clear your calendars Sunday, July 22, through Friday, July 27. Some real propaganda bombshells are bound to be dropped, and you’ll want to be there when “several leading Muslim clerics and thinkers from around the globe will participate in an unprecedented online dialogue about their religion, terrorism and human rights.”
I would call your parentage and intellect into question, but you seem to have done the heavy lifting for me.
You add nothing to this blog, your "linguistics" are undeniably and blatantly sexist, and your writing:
One on my blog I conducted
off on th shooting
was of nicklines
As far as Michelle Malkin goes, well, let's see. She has one of the most popular blog sites in America, she writes for national newspapers and guest-hosts the most-watched cable TV news program on television.
What have YOU done recently, Mr. Chambers?
Reminds me of the Lenny Bruce line about the waitress in the see-thru dress you didn't want to see through. Anyway, it's nice that Hillary's getting in touch with her femmie side. People were starting to think whe was just butch.
The Post article is by Robin Givhan, who has been pulling the same trick - writing about the clothes of political people - for some months. It's generally inappropriate, she (Givhan) looks a fool doing it. She has generally done it to conservatives - really went off about John Roberts' children at the time of the confirmation hearings. My guess is Givhan wants to write about politics and has the fashion beat. The Post may have too much institutional rigidity or work rules to move her.
