I like Deep, BUT his brother is cooler...

Yeah, you're right, no one would really believe me.

Hillary has a radio active personality, this is in fact is why many view her as having shrew like attributes.

The same people on the other side who recoil at Newt not because of his substance but because of his lofty meat headedness, don't have a melt down and schreech-

"Oh Reverse sexism, oh reverse sexism!"

Some political people have likeable personalities, and some don't.
It's that simple.

What's even more unfair for Newt is that he has a higher IQ than any candidate running now, but isn't likeable.

shrew- A woman with a violent, scolding, or nagging temperament; a scold.

As in "the taming of"

ThesaurusLegend: Synonyms Related Words Antonyms

Noun 1. shrew - a scolding nagging bad-tempered woman
termagant
disagreeable woman, unpleasant woman - a woman who is an unpleasant person
virago - a noisy or scolding or domineering woman
yenta - (Yiddish) a vulgar shrew; a shallow coarse termagant

"screech" reverse sexism?

When people start calling Newt a shrew we can talk. Apples and oranges..double standards.

You're digging yourself a hole here, dbs. Try and dance around it all you want, but when you show pics comparing her to a witch, call her a "shrew instead of a lady," you are being sexist. Period.

Martha's right, too. You'd have a lot more credibility around here if you left those kinds of comments and lame pictures out.

Who is having a "meltdown"? So melodramatic.

Show me a man with similar personality traits that Hillary has and show me you calling him the male equivalent of a shrew (is there such a word, hmmm) and posting witch pictures when referring to him and making other sexist comments about him. You are completely blind to the double standard you display here, as others have told you here-not just me. Until you can criticize Senator Clinton in a non-sexist way I'll continue to point it out.

A new poll from the NBC and the Wall Street Journal finds that voters have problems voting for a candidate of McCain's age, apparently far more than object to supporting either an African American or female candidate. MSNBC's Norah O'Donnell previewed the poll earlier today (the full results will be announced later tonight):

O'DONNELL: Here's what the voters think according to a brand new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released just this afternoon. 71% say Americans are ready to elect a woman as president, 20% say no. The results are nearly identical when voters were asked whether Americans were ready to elect an African-American as president. 72% said yes and 18% said no. We will have more on this NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll tonight.


We also asked about in that number about McCain's age and how many people want to elect someone his age. Less people want to elect someone McCain's age than want to elect an African-American or a woman. We're going to have more of those poll results. NBC Washington bureau chief Tim Russert will have more of those details on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and of course on Hardball tonight.

If this poll were conducted 4 years ago, and Hillary and Barack were not in the picture, I wonder if those African American v. Female numbers would be any different.

Well I guess now we have ageism too. I wonder what the specific concerns about his age are. Health issues? Mental faculties? If it was his 90 whatever year old mother running, that I could understand.
