Hillary Sexism Watch (Chelsea edition)

hillarychelsea.JPGApparently they’re still hitting the “bad working mom” theme with Hillary Clinton. The nerve of her, allowing her adult daughter to campaign for her! (Never mind that Chelsea is 27 years old.)

DAVID SHUSTER: Bill, there’s just something a little bit unseemly to me that Chelsea’s out there calling up celebrities, saying support my mom, and she’s apparently also calling these super delegates.
BILL PRESS: Hey, she’s working for her mom. What’s unseemly about that? During the last campaign, the Bush twins were out working for their dad. I think it’s great, I think she’s grown up in a political family, she’s got politics in her blood, she loves her mom, she thinks she’d make a great president —
SHUSTER: But doesn’t it seem like Chelsea’s sort of being pimped out in some weird sort of way?

Uh, no. It doesn’t. And it’s not like we never see male politicians’ wives, mothers, and daughters on the campaign trail with them.
UPDATE: Shakes has a round-up of even more sexist bullshit about Hillary.
UPDATE II: Shuster has apologized.
