Republicans outraged over "Trophy Wife" slur#1
Posted: 10/18/07 at 10:40am
Republicans are outraged- OUTRAGED- that Democrats (or supposed democratic pundits I guess, because I sure haven't heard John Edwards talk about her) have called Fred Thompson's wife Jeri a "Trophy Wife." Town Hall ran a long, defensive piece on why she's NOT a trophy wife and Fox has been on the warpath lately, branding the term a "Slur" and ranting that Democrats have no business "Smearing" a candidates wife, despite the fact that apparently, the first news organization to call her that was their own network, when Juan Williams referred to her as such, much to Bill Kristol's dismay.

As always, it's good to put this whining in context. After all, in 1992, Bill Clinton's wife was called all sorts of things, including: the overbearing yuppie wife from hell, grating, abrasive and boastful, over-structured super-mom, a hall monitor, bad-hair Hilary, and Lady Macbeth in a black preppy headband (those epithets all came from the conservative mouthpiece New York Times, by the way). Do I even need to remind you of few of Rush Limbaugh's accusations; Murderer and lesbian are the first to come to my mind. I am sure you have your favorites.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

And "Breck Girl" had no pejorative connotations whatsoever. None. And yes, I realize Edwards isn't a spouse or a candidate but a candidate himself, but still.

I'm personally all for Demorcrats sinking as low as the Republicans have. Attempting to take the high road has never done any good and it just gives the right more latitude to carry on with business as usual.

They'd better get used to it. It's not the worst she'll be called.

Rush Limbaugh called a pre-teen girl going through that awkward stage of puberty a dog 15 years ago. On television. And his audience laughed.

At that moment, the GOP lost any chance to ever claim the high ground in the issue of slurring a candidate's family.

Imagine the clucking that would transpire if a Democratic candidate's wife went around showing the kind of cleavage Thompson's wife does.

but, pj, that thing is not a republican or a conservative it's a tin-eared attempt at performance art designed to give democrats here a chance to joust with the very epitome of their wildest neo-con fantasies.

as far as mrs. thompson, she's far better looking than any other candidate's spouse (republican or democrat) or any first lady in recent memory. so of course she's gonna get buried under a sh*t storm from the left. but they'd better be careful, everyday in everyway, fred becomes more and more skeletor-ian and there's no he-man on the left.

To remind us that Thompson is the stud for nailing such a choice specimen of womanhood, I think we should just refer to her as Thompson is the stud. To make it simpler, just use the acronym TITS.

I'm just wondering how much candy it took him to lure her into the back of his van. Jesus, I have friends my age that look older than her.
