Hillary Clinton officially declared she's not a lesbian - not that there's anything wrong with that.

During an interview with The Advocate to be published next week, Sean Kennedy, the gay magazine's news and features editor, asked the presidential candidate, "How do you respond to the occasional rumor that you're a lesbian?"

"People say a lot of things about me, so I really don't pay any attention to it," Sen. Clinton (D-N.Y.) replied.

"It's not true, but it is something that I have no control over. People will say what they want to say."

Kennedy told the Daily News he's convinced. "I 100% believe she's a straight, heterosexual woman," he said.

Well so many of those "uppity, assertive, calculating" types must be lesbians I suppose. Cause they just don't know how to cowtow to men. Oh well, at least she's still a shrew.

And that was sarcasm based upon some of the ideas that have been expressed in FYM, lest anyone think differently.

WASHINGTON — A homeland security adviser to Rudy Giuliani came under fire Thursday for claiming there were "too many mosques" in the United States _ and defended himself by saying his point was that not enough Muslim leaders cooperate with law enforcement.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., the former chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee and the top GOP member on the panel, said his comments to the Politico Web site were taken out of context. Democrats said Giuliani should drop him as a campaign adviser.

"I stand by everything I said other than the fact that the Politico totally took it out of context," King said Thursday.

In the Politico interview, King said: "Unfortunately we have too many mosques in this country, there's too many people who are sympathetic to radical Islam. We should be looking at them more carefully, we should be finding out how we can infiltrate, we should be much more aggressive in law enforcement."

After King complained, Politico posted video of the entire interview.

Giuliani, speaking to reporters Thursday in Northern Virginia, chuckled at the suggestion he dump King as an adviser.

"I've known Pete for 41 years, so I'm not about to do that," Giuliani said. "I know exactly what Pete meant. I knew before I even heard the clarification. What he means was that there are mosques in which violence is preached. I know that from my own investigations of Islamic terrorism. I also know that there are many mosques in which it isn't."

As for any political fallout, King told The Associated Press: "Rudy can take care of himself. He's a tough guy, but I would think that campaigns would respect someone like myself who says things that might be politically incorrect but are accurate in that too many Muslim leaders in this country do not denounce extremism."

The congressman was denounced by the DC-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, a group that has long accused King of lobbing unfair attacks against American Muslims.

"We call on Republican leaders and other people of conscience to repudiate Representative King's bigoted remarks and to support the civil and religious rights of all Americans," said CAIR official Corey Saylor.

Both the Muslim group and the Democratic party called on Giuliani to drop King from the campaign. Giuliani spokeswomen did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Democratic party spokeswoman Stacie Paxton called on King to apologize and urged Giuliani to drop King as his homeland security adviser, saying "this type of bigoted language has no place in public discourse."

King said his point was not that there were too many mosques in the United States, but that too many of those mosques do not cooperate with law enforcement _ a claim he made in 2003 and 2004 which also prompted criticism.

"I know of any number of mosques in New York that are under surveillance by law enforcement because they have suspicious links, at the very least radical links, that are inappropriate," he said.

Not a shrew, certainly not a Hilary Clinton and a real world leader.

When the Left have somebody of the same gender with a fraction of this leader's character and caliber, wake me up, otherwise trouble me no more concerning this matter.

thank you.

How about you wake us up when you get a clue, stop using double standards and sexism, and actually adhere to the principals that you preach, this would be much easier for everyone here.

"Let's see now, this is my wife calling, I think," Giuliani said, pulling his ringing cell phone from his jacket pocket.

"Hello, dear," he said, speaking into the microphone on the podium. "I'm talking to the members of the NRA right now. Would you like to say hello?"

The audience of about 500 gun owners at a downtown Washington hotel laughed a little as she appeared to decline.

He concluded the call with, "I love you. I'll call you as soon as I'm finished. Have a safe trip. Talk to you later. I love you."

Giuliani answered his wife's cell phone call several times for the photographers, as he has during other campaign appearances. It isn't planned, his campaign said.

"What you saw today was a candidate in a spontaneous moment on the campaign trail," Giuliani spokeswoman Maria Comella said.

Wow, Rudy's wife is one nagging shrew. From what I have read she is quite calculating and aggressive, maybe she even has Rudy by the proverbial balls. That's not very manly of him, is it?

Kid Nation' Contestants No Fans of President Bush

By Rogers Cadenhead



After the children on the CBS reality TV series Kid Nation create their own government, it might not be an ally of the United States. Several of the contestants posted online profiles on the CBS web site that are highly critical of President Bush.
When asked to name some of the worst U.S. presidents in history, a 14-year-old Florida girl named Sophia gave this answer:

I think George W. Bush takes the cake. The planet is disintegrating, we're fighting an unnecessary war, millions are without health care, the school system has gone down the toilet, the country is billions of dollars in debt, the world seems to be headed on a path towards destruction, and America's hypocrisy is mocked by many nations. I think that merits recognition.

Asked the same question, 9-year-old Alex of Nevada wrote this:

George W. Bush, for leading us into a war without checking his facts first and for not having a clear plan prior to the invasion. He also suppressed anyone who wanted to question his decisions, which is against the American concept of free speech. William Harrison because he was too stupid to wear a coat at his inauguration speech, and caught pneumonia and died without doing anything in office.

And here's Anjay, 12, one of the president's fellow Texans:

The US president that comes to mind, due to recent events, is George W. Bush, because I don't agree with the way he is handling the Iraq war.

D.K., an Illinois 14-year-old, was critical of both Presidents Bush:

George Bush; for not truly caring what happened to his country while he was in presidency, George W. Bush; for trying to be an exact replica of his father and his poor decisions.

Bush does receive support from Emilie, a 9-year-old Nevadan, aside from one issue:

My parents voted for George Bush and I agree with their decision. Although I did not agree with Bush's decision to send my brother and other soldiers to war.

One of the kids, Alex, named Al Gore as a world leader he admires and said he read Gore's book An Inconvenient Truth. "I admire the fact that Al Gore has committed himself to champion this worthy cause," he writes.

These profiles were discovered by blogger Rafe Colburn. The premise of Kid Nation is that 40 children, ages 8 through 15, have been left in a desert ghost town to fend for themselves and create their own society.

Diamond's point, I believe was to compare Hilary Clinton's achievements unfavorably to Margaret Thatcher's.

Can you explain why you consider this to be a double standard? Can you explain why you consider this to be sexist?

I never liked Margaret Thatcher. She was Ronald Reagan's lapdog, and I didn't like Reagan. No, Hillary isn't Thatcher. She's better.

There are quite a few people out there who still happen to believe that Margaret Thatcher essentially saved the British people from themselves. I'm surprised by how common this view seems to be.

Diamond's post throughout this thread and throughout FYM reek of double standards and sexism. You don't have to search too far to find one.

Many people believe that Mrs Thatcher and the free market economists that influenced her saved Britain from the burgeoning power of the trade unions and Marxist infiltration of the shop floor.

What would have been so terrible if the trade unions had had success?

Any proof of this happening?

These are not rhetorical questions.
