Democrats are treating a couple of their own female candidates shabbily, but media aren’t inclined to talk about it. Aren’t Dems the protectors of women?
Sometimes I bump into a story begging to be covered and then I wonder why no one does. Usually it’s because the political powers that be don’t want it covered.
If you don’t believe me, consider this:
“Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) requested two buy modafinil online sun pharma listed on the report, ‘Archdiocesan Priests with Substantiated Allegations of Sexual Misconduct with Minors.’ The report was issued by the Office of the Chancellor, Archdiocese of Chicago.”
I wrote that in 2008, ahead of the presidential election. Bet you never heard a word about it from your favorite TV pundit. I’m not over it yet.
Anyway. About those female Dem candidates.
For starters, the Democrat gubernatorial wannabe Nan Rich is like the most ignored human being in Dem politics in Florida right now.
Rich isn’t included on polls, and Dems asked Charlie Crist to represent them at the Gridiron Club dinner in March in Washington. Rich served in the Florida State Senate—she’s not a newcomer to politics. And, horror of horrors! Emily’s List, a list that touts getting ‘progressive’ women elected (think no-limits abortion types), didn’t even include Rich on their list.
Moving along, let’s talk about buy modafinil singapore. The Democratic Congressional Committee recently ran a primary poll on Massachusett’s 6th district congressional race, and they left DeFranco off the poll. This is the second time they’ve snubbed her although she’s a viable candidate who proved her street creds on petition signatures. A conservative blogger told her story—imagine that.
Chances are you never heard of either of these women. The buy modafinil paypal even intrigued a blogger at Dem influencer The Daily Kos.
Here’s one highly entertaining theory a Kos reader named doc2 put forth about Nan Rich being ignored for former Republican turned NPA turned Democrat Charlie Crist:
“he’s liberal, and popular. (0+ / 0-)
And probably gay. What more can we want? Nan Rich is a nobody in the state of Florida. She’s an old woman who is a complete unknown.”
“Old woman”? How’s that for respect from your fellow Dem?
DeFranco issued a press release, and she held nothing back:
“The Democratic Party holds itself out as the champion of women, but in a blatantly sexist move, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee commissioned a poll in our race and omitted Marisa’s name from the poll. Yes, the party that has howled about the “War on Women” left Marisa out of the poll even though she is the only candidate to date who has qualified for the ballot in the 6th District of Massachusetts. Keeping a candidate out of a poll effectively mutes her voice and keeps voters in the dark as to their choices in a race….”
buy modafinil europe has the scoop on DeFranco.
