Liberal Elite stop shouting “Fatty, Fatty, Can’t Run,” to Weep Openly for Poor, Fragile Elizabeth Warren.
Earlier this week, Massachusetts Democratic senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren took a swipe at sitting Senator Scott Brown. When asked, during a debate, how did she paid for college she said “I kept my clothes on.” The dig was in reference to Senator Brown’s nude appearance in Cosmopolitan in 1982. When asked, Brown retorted, “Thank God.”
In the normal rough and tumble world of politics, this should be nothing more than a Grapevine vignette on Special Report. But Brown is a Republican, and Warren, in the eyes of her liberal defenders, is a poor, helpless woman who’s fragile self image cannot stand receiving the type of teasing that she dishes out.
For weeks the same liberal outlets have been mercilessly criticizing and piling on Governor Chris Christie for being “too fat to be president,” even making thinly veiled use of adjectives. Christie even had to say in a press conference that “it’s not news to me that I’m overweight.” Liberals now have the gall to tsk tsk over Brown’s response?
Really? Does Elizabeth Warren, an attorney, a Harvard Law professor, a published author, a Sunday school teacher and a mother of two, have such a low self image and is so frail, that she can’t take a little ribbing from her opponent? (Not to mention this was in a spat that she started.) If Elizabeth Warren cannot take a little ribbing, how will she stand up against the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy® and protect the rights of Bay Staters in the Senate?
More importantly, why is it okay for someone, without provocation, to openly, even cruelly criticize a man’s appearance, but not even hint at a woman’s? Why is it that liberal elites don’t believe women are strong enough to stand up to so slight a criticism? If I was Elizabeth Warren, I would be offended that they think I need to be defended.
