Hey, Hillary: Smile, Girl

At one time, this would have been a great topic in one of the feminist groups. Unfortunately, that ship has sailed, so I share this perspective with my fellow Hillary supporters who are feminists, or at least allies.

You know, the world would be a happier place if a girl would just smile more.

Just ask the guys on Twitter.

Now, by "girl," I mean a former U.S. senator and secretary of state who is likely to be the first female president of these allegedly united states.

As for "the world," let's narrow it down. We're talking mean men who apparently spend much of their day breathing into paper bags because they're not even allowed to ask a secretary to grab them a cuppa joe anymore without someone from HR signing them up for diversity training.

What? No more office wife? Evidence of hell in a handbasket right there. Just ask them.

So now we've got this Hillary woman going all presidential on us. She's everywhere. Giving speeches. Declaring victories. Starring in one town hall after another. How much suffering must a good ol' boy endure?

"God," they pray, "pick another name."

On Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton did what even Hillary Clinton thought she wouldn't do: She swept the primaries. Missouri (barely), Illinois, North Carolina, Florida — she won them and my home state of Ohio, which is in the Eastern time zone, people. Boy am I tired of that question.

Clinton strolled her conquering self across the stage in Florida as results poured in, and she delivered a victory speech while some of the white guys in TV-land offered their critiques via Twitter.

2. Morning joke made a fool of himself over his comments...

He has stopped propping up Donald so has to hit on Hillary


....MSNBC's Joe Scarborough: "Smile. You just had a big night."

Because nothing says "commander in chief" like a girlish grin for the camera.

Fox News' Brit Hume: "Hillary having a big night in the primaries. So she's shouting angrily in her victory speech. Supporters loving it. What's she mad at?"

Wouldn't that be great after decades of flinging stuff at her we just give it back with dividends!! Let's best the heck out of these *******!

15. This is awesome

I especially love the ending:

"One grandmother barreling her way toward the presidency is bound to work up all kinds of other women who’ve had it up to here with the catcall mentality of men who measure our worth by our ability to make them feel better about their limited view of us.

“Where will it all end?” they wonder.

At the White House, I’d guess.

I’m smiling as I say that. Does that help?"
