Did Hillary Clinton Get A Boob Job?

The obvious answer is, “Who friggin’ cares?!?” Or possibly, “How dare you, you sexist pig?!?” Or simply,”Eeeeeewwww!!!1eleven!”

But when the subject is Sarah Palin, all bets are off. On a day when Republican women were rocking primary elections across the nation, the Left was ogling Palin’s chest.

    What a shameful day for Wonkette/Gawker to descend into such triviality and sully their high journalistic standards by reporting on such filth… wait, what? What is your point here exactly? That trashy humor oriented sites talk about trashy humorous things?

    Clinton, Haley and Fiorina are politicians. Sarah Palin is a media figure and celebrity. Boob jobs are fair game for celebs.

    In that case, did Barack Obama get a boob job?

    Well, I don’t recall Clinton ever actively trading on her sex appeal to get herself (or her husband) votes – the same cannot be said for “Winky” Palin. She herself made her physical appearance part of her “platform”; ergo, it is fair game.

    As for the rest, well, you’ve effectively underscored the (obvious) point. Where a Republican woman is concerned, sexism is entirely acceptable to lefties.

    —-

    The point isn’t about whether those two sites lean left or right, it’s that two comedy sites do not equal “the left” as you implied.

    I realize that this distinction may be too subtle for you to grasp, but trust me, it hasn’t escaped others.

    Let me put it this way: If I wrote “Satirical sites Wonkette and Gawker are under attack from the right today” when in fact the only site that mentioned it was yours, that would be roughly the same thing. Of course, now it seems that perhaps a bunch of right wing sites are interested because of your post, but that’s different.

    Also parts of “the Left”, by Dodd Harris’ reasoning:

    Right Wing News
    Conservatives4Palin
    Hot Air
    Outside the Beltway
    Michelle Malkin
    Mediaite
    Liberty Pundits
    Weasel Zippers
    Red State
    Jammie Wearing Fool

    Huh. I learn something new every day.

    Apparently a blogger called “Left Coast Rebel” is part of the left. Conspicuously absent from memeorandum’s list of blogs linking to that Boston Herald story are DailyKos, like someone mentioned upthread. Firedoglake, Glenn Greenwald, Democratic Underground and Atrios are all missing as well for some mysterious reason.

    (The Boston Herald, you may recall, used to be part of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire. I’m not too familiar with it, but I know it’s considered more right-wing than the other major paper in the Boston area, the Globe.) But I’m sure there’s some reason that this story is being attributed to “the Left”, even though it’s getting lots of coverage from notable conservatives and very little from notable liberals and I just haven’t thought of it yet.

    Uh, excuse me Dodd, but have you looked at Memeorandum to see which websites ran this? With the exception of Breaking Boston News and (arguably) Wonkette, all the other websites are right leaning sites. Just one more example of right wing “truthiness”.

    I love how this story is developing. Gawker posts a pretty lame tongue-in-cheek Kerning of Sarah Palin’s breasts, and somehow 500 right-wing blogs morph them into Mother Jones and tut-tut (while squeezing a dollop of Astroglide onto their left hand) about how the Left is so obsessed with Sarah Palin’s, erm, hockey pucks… yeah… the Left is so dirty, mm. One can only imagine that if a Palin sex tape leaked out, there would be a crazy race to be the first to post it on a right-wing site… you know, just to prove that The Left is a bunch of sickos.

    Quick roundup of The Left, via John Cole:

    Let’s not leave out HuffPo and SadlyNo! (with credit to HuffPo for at least including my suggested “Who cares?” choice in the poll they’re running on this subject).

    I looked at the list with which the estimate Mr. Cole allegedly “pwned” me. RWN, first listed, had not one but two pieces, both by women and both (as I expected) taking pretty much the exact same position as my post here (rather than, as implied, promoting the rumour). At that point, for obvious reasons, I stopped checking Mr. Cole’s list.

    I don’t speak for Sarah Palin. I don’t even like her that much. But she has a unique talent for drawing the absolute worst out in her detractors. And this thread is ample evidence, Mr. Cole’s failed attempt to suggest I’m ignoring contrary evidence to further a narrative notwithstanding.

    As a relatively new site visitor, I am intrigued by Dodd’s bio….apparently Dodd ‘can kill a mime using only his thumb’.

    Yes, discussing and/or ogling Sarah Palin’s boobs does make for good fare, but the ability to dispatch a mime with such alacrity and grace simply must be expanded upon.

    Inquiring minds, well mine, want to know. Did this ability come from some kind of training, or did Dodd just happen upon the technique through need? And of course, was this ability called on numerous times so that a technique could be identified and perfected?

    Wow, this is an interesting place to visit.

    Boobs…yes Sarah Palin has nice boobs, and Todd looks like nobody to be trifled with. Also, it appears that he may have two thumbs.

    Mimes beware.

    Hey Dodd? Bit of advice dude– you can try to pretend you’re above-it-all and could care less what the filthy leftist rabble commentors think of you *or* you can wade into the comments and respond. Trying to do both simultaneously isn’t going to work out any better than trying to indict “the Left” because a gossip/humor blog posted on a gossip/humor story *regardless of whether that gossip/humor blog has leftist sympathies.* Guess what? It’s still a gossip/humor blog and does not speak for “The Left” despite your pathetic flailing.

    Personally I come to OTB to try and get some conservative views other than tired old “wahh wahh wahh! the mean liberal media!” victimization fetish routine. I guess I’ll just skip your posts. (Though I’m sure you’ll be responding to me, which in your mind will somehow be proof of how little you care.)

    Oh now I get it, having read all the comments– when Dodd used the phrase, “The Left” a bit over 24 hours ago, he was pre-emptively responding to the comments that he knew were going to be posted referencing John Cole’s (at the time nonexistant) list. He already knew that HuffPo and Sadly, No! (the latter of which is different from a left-slanted humor site because… well…somehow) had also linked the story, but he has good reasons for omitting it from his original post that he’ll get around to telling us later and at any rate certainly don’t have anything to do with attempts to dig up information that retroactively justifies the claim a day after he initially made it.

    Also when Right Wing blogs talk about the Sarah Palin boob job story they aren’t actually talking about it because those posts are written by women and/or people who agree with Dodd. (But wait… doesn’t that mean Sadly No! didn’t actually talk about the story either? I guess it takes a sophisticated mime-killing attorney to follow this sort of unimpeachable logic.)

    You mean because looking at the first couple links satisfied you that the conclusion you drew before looking at any of them was correct? Because if not then it’s actually not quite so obvious after all.

    I wouldn’t bother posting about it if I didn’t care. So your armchair psychoanalysis is inapposite.

    What I don’t get is why, if my posts fail to meet your standards, you feel compelled to tell me about it. I mean, at least the people who blithely regurgitated John’s list without realizing (or caring) that he’d made no distinction between promoting the rumour and criticizing its promulgation addressed the substance of the post, if lamely. Why does the relative anonymity of the Internet seem to make so many people feel obligated to tell other people they’re ignoring them? If you can’t be bothered even to copy/paste someone else’s misfire in response to the content, then either skip my posts or don’t. That I really don’t care about.

    I’m waiting for Andrew Sullivan’s next psychotic break on the subject of Sarah, and the breast-thing will drive him closer to terminal clinical nutjobbery. BTW, there are now bras which enlarge, uplift, and otherwise improve the appearance of young women in t-shirts—my 21-year old model daughter tells me. [She models for an agency, as well as being a great kid.]

    Tina Brown’s Feminazi coda to her failed career stateside suggests she should retire back to Blighty for rehab on both mental and physical fronts. The New Yorker staff still snicker at this tart’s wanting to put lipstick on their pig!

    Crier on GMA has fallen a long way from rational thinking and now evidently believes that success in business is a liability in politics because, apparently, political hack/sluts like Boxer and Pelosi are soooo much better at legislation. What a fall from grace!

    How about Klobachar, Murray, and a couple other Dem d-bags in high public office who’d break any mirror they got near with their looks. Their room-temp IQ also shows them to be hacks along the lines of Senator Ma’am Boxer, the soft-port writer from nowhere.
