Mid-term elections have the let the snotty little scum feeling down.
I guess she was so depressed that she wasn't able to do another column ridiculing people as "tea ba**ers." As a gay woman, she's the last one who should be encouraging homophobia and that's exactly what she did.
She also needs to grow the hell up. At her advanced age, it's really past time for her to grasp that a feature film is not going to be her life story. But didn't she reject The Kids Are All Right because it wasn't her story up there on the screen?
To me that stupidity is very much related to all of her other stupidity.
She thinks she's something wonderful but as far as the world's concerned, no verdict has yet been rendered.
At some point, she might want to consider all the hate and scorn she aimed not at politicians or Big Business but at average Americans with whom she disagreed.
At some point, she might want to grasp that it was her actions -- and she wasn't alone -- that helped determine the outcome of the 2010 mid-terms.
It takes a stupid and hateful woman like Kate Clinton to write "WTF?" where she paints her Barry on her side of the 'feminist' fence and calls her opponents "racists."
I look around at people like her and think, "Why are people my age surprised and blaming the youth? Kate Clinton is what passes for a 'thinker' these days so why the hell would you have expectations on anyone emerging in this society?"
So if you don't agree with her, you're a racist. Yet she wonders why she's unable to communicate with people who have different opinions.
Someone thinking Barack Obama is the anti-christ is, to her, racism.
As a therapist of many, many years, a doctor in fact, I can tell you that every president has people who consider him -- they've all been hims so far -- and that's in part due to the fact that in our society we put some much power into that office -- while voting empty suits into the White House. When you vest so much power in a person, fears are a natural outcome.
I have a very good friend who goes all the way back to elementary with me. She doesn't believe in God. But in November 2000, she believed. In November 2000, she was convinced George W. Bush was the anti-christ. That had nothing to do with racism.
It had something to do with her understanding of "mark fo the beast" and a boil on his face that, you may remember, he tried to cover with a bandage before going on camera.
When a position comes with power, people will fear what the person holding the position might do.
I don't find that irrational.
Kate Clinton does.
But this is the woman who spent the last two years insulting everyone who wouldn't drink Barack's piss and call it Kool-Aid and then, after the mid-terms, wants to express hurt and shock that people could vote differently than she wanted them to. She made no effort to communicate beyond her tiny circle. Yet she doesn't see -- still -- that she is as much to blame as any other element if she's unhappy with the mid-term results.
