Ann on Hill’s hills and pervy 13 year-olds

You’ve gotta love what CNN chose to use from Ann’s interview. (But congrats, girl, you were great and funny!)

    Is there a way for y’all to display the video so that it doesn’t automatically start playing? I did watch it, and yeah, it was lame (though Ann is cool, of course), but every time I click over to Feministing or refresh the page I hear, “And then, cleavage!”

    Seriously…that’s it?

    American media is such a joke.

    I know, I know. I haven’t watched cable news in so long that at first I thought the screen with “acting like a man” written on it in big letters was part of a video made by an opposing campaign, not the actual CNN segment… Yikes.

    Your friendly neighborhood grrlnrrd sez: the video should no longer autoplay, but let us know if you still have problems. (It’s running a bit choppy for me; I think our server is a little slow this morning.)

    Ann is so cool.

    I’ve been impressed with the level of constraint, in the media. Of course this is obscene, but I’m scared about what will come out in the general.

    This is outrageous, as Ann Lewis, Hillary Clinton’s top advisor pointed out – that the Washington Post would waste 764 words on this topic.
    However, I am amusing myself by thinking of slogans where they can use this to there advantage – such as:
    “One boob in the White House a’int workin’, It’s time to elect two! Hillary ’08!”
    Come on – let’s come up with others!

    Cleavage? I don’t see it. That looks like a pretty conservative woman’s suite to me. Either way, I don’t get how this is news.

    It long past time for a serious investigation into which male candidates are stuffing their pants, or wearing codpieces

    What the hell kind of issue is this for a PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
    Hilary wears extremely professional, very wearable clothes… why need they observe them so closely,. aren’t her views what they need to discuss?

    Two things. First, I still don’t really see any cleavage. I’ve studied this photo for a while (strictly in the public interest) and fail to see why this is a controversy. Additionally, I’m failing to see what the problem is if Hillary wants to show off a little cleavage in public. that’s her prerogative. It won’t make me vote for her as I still have questions about her authenticity.

    American media is such a joke.
    I visited England for the first time in June. Watching the news there was pretty amazing — they actually covered substantive issues!

    Now, now, what’s “pervy” about a thirteen year old boy checking out “cleavage”? Are you implying that I was “pervy” when I was thirteen? Good heavens, thirteen year old boys scoping out ladies’s boobies seems quite – almost excessively – wholesome and family-values-oriented (= “hetero”) to me.

    Besides, Barack Obama has given to our country of potentially great state secretary in the name of Hillary Clinton. It means, that it is necessary for each soldier to give possibility to receive higher education in any college at its choice.
    And American democracy, is, as a matter of fact, the compromise between the magnates who are putting forward the president, and the people, confirms which this choice. Then the representative of the party of conservatives have accused of its request to Deripaska to offer the ridiculous sum for such people in 50 thousand pounds sterling in favour of party that is forbidden by laws of the Great Britain (there there were elections).
