Bernie zeros in on Hillary's 'butt'

CONCORD, N.H. — As he filed Thursday to run in New Hampshire’s Democratic contest for president, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) fielded a colorful question from someone crammed into the secretary of state’s office here: “You ready to kick some Republican butt, Bernie?”

“There’s some earlier butt we have to deal with,” the Vermont senator replied, in a less-than-graceful reference to the Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The remark, which prompted some nervous laughter in a room packed with reporters and supporters, comes as Clinton’s camp has already suggested that Sanders and his team are treating her in a sexist fashion — a notion Sanders has vigorously denied. Thursday’s comment seemed likely to provide additional fodder.

There had been controversy of another sort prior to Sanders’s filing Thursday, with some questioning whether the longest-serving independent in Congress would be eligible to run as a Democrat in the nation’s first primary state.

106. You nailed it

Of all the increasingly absurd criticisms of Sanders by Clinton supporters this one leads the pack thus far. Is it, I wonder, a sign that these Clintonistas are nervous about Senator Sanders chances? Is it that some are simply far too childish in their approach to actual grown up political discussion?

Our elections have become absurd, whichever party one supports I fear. Perhaps it is attributable to the length of the process, campaigning for years, spending money like water, becoming, over time, repetitious and running out of things to say. I do prefer to believe that silly childish accusations like the one that heads this thread come from a small minority of aggressive and thoughtless folks.

That was very inelegant. A lot of ways to say you're going to have to fight hard first to win the nomination. That wasn't one of them. Foot.In.Mouth.

And by the way, I'd find it to be a gaffe if he even had said it about another Democratic opponent who was male. You can kick butt, but you don't say you have to deal with a "butt."

A presidential candidate can probably get away with saying "Kick some butt!" I wouldn't advise it though - you're going to offend people and you want to avoid that when running for president.

Turning the phrase into "There's some earlier butt we have to deal with" sounds awkward and leaves that word "butt" just hanging there.

Stupid thing to say.

I want to refrain from yelling at my allies, and I count you among my allies because of your many posts about the educational system.

I would ask you this: Will Bernie Sanders be better for the educational system, and he pledged that he would not privatize it, or will Hillary Clinton be better?

A real shame, since we could have used an advocate against corporate privatization over the last 20 years.

If he'd been out in front on that issue for many years, the endorsements with education unions would have reflected that.

As an educator, I would hope that means something.

My sister has a Master's in Early Education. She knows exactly the threat that charter schools have become.

I speak from a place that gives a good goddamn, not just to blow smoke on DU and score a point.

86. If Bernie had done anything of substance, he'd have won the confidence of the education unions.

HRC has been a lifelong proponent of early childhood education and child health care and has created policy in this area. She has stated that she believes that teachers are part of the education solution, and she wants to limit testing.

If Bernie had thrown himself into the fray of opposing education reform as a visible ally before he decided to run for higher office, he'd be in a stronger position vis a vis education. But he didn't.

"Kick some butt" is a common expression used to refer to giving all of one's effort to defeating someone-- or something.

Bernie has stated unequivocally that he is opposed to the TPP, and will do what he can to stop it, and the TPP is very much in the news now. Obama has also stated that he intends to sign TPP "sometime after January" so yeah, defeating TPP would be higher on Bernie's list right now than defeating Republicans.

Last edited Fri Nov 6, 2015, 01:23 AM - Edit history (1)

Does mentioning a candidate's butt imply sexism when it happens to be a female butt? How does that work? Are you saying that referring to kicking a man's butt is OK but when it is a woman it is sexist? Seems to me that treating a woman's metaphorical butt the same as a man's metaphorical butt is the opposite of sexism.

This may be the most ludicrous complaint in the history of American politics.

92. Get it? Republican candidates have male butts, so you can figuratively kick them.

Hillary Clinton has a female butt, so you can only kick it literally, not figuratively, which somehow makes you sexist because you said "butt" while discussing a female, so you must have meant you want to kick her literal, actual female butt.

And only a sexist would use the same expression for winning a campaign against a male candidate that he uses for winning a campaign against a female candidate.

93. Oh, for the love of Was kicking "Republican butt" misandrist and misogynistic?

Keep this up and we are going back to 1955 as far as employers being willing to hire women. All they are going to see walking through the door are potential EEOC complaints and lawsuits. Actually, much worse than 1955 because there was no EEOC then and the law was not as favorable to women as it is now.

Remember the Civil Rights Act? They included women in it only because they thought including women would surely kill the bill, that Congress would be more willing to give equal rights to people of color than it would be to give them to women! Under one measure, they could have been right: The Fourteenth Amendment got ratified. The ERA got killed. No one back then moved out of the neighborhood when (hetero) women moved in, but no one wanted them in the business district unless they could type at least 60 words a minute and take shorthand, and Congress didn't even have bathrooms for them.

168. Yes I am and I am exercising that position on you

 

And no you don't stand by your statement, up thread you tried to deny even making it to another poster.

115. LOL. I don't think sexism is the cause of that

but simply repeating the word as used in the question to refer to other candidates.

But it is the type of thing Obama would have handled better.

128. Words of wisdom by that great socialist thinker and the savior of us all

 

Bernie Sanders...“There’s some earlier butt we have to deal with,”


Sounds like a quote right out of a republican clown car debate.

135. Trying to make this statement a big issue is what is right out of the republican clown car.

The right wing always blows up the littlest things into huge "scandals." It looks like the Hillary fanatics are taking a page right out of the republicans playbook.

140. I'm not sure what your point is

Does she not have a butt or is she somehow exempt from having it figuratively kicked in an election?

Make up your mind, dude. Is she a strong independent woman or is she a member of a protected class? You may think she can have it both ways but the voters won't.

144. Thank god he didn't zoom in on Hillary's 'butt'

Zero is nothing. Which is what Bernie did in regards to anybody's butt. Zero. Nothing. Nada. Zip

155. As the article said-it was a less than graceful comment from Sanders.

But it happens. Joe Biden is still the King of less than graceful comments IMHO.

163. This has to be one of the fucking dumbest ginned up 'controversies' yet.

The M$M is pathetic and open in it's attempt to create strife within the Democratic Party.

Shame on those buying this garbage.

179. Is this what counts as hard-hitting journalism from the once mighty Washington Post?

How utterly depressing.

Well, at least we all have a clearer understanding as to who all the "poutraged emoprogs" are... such delicate little micro-aggrieved flowers.

181. I see, NOW he's a Democrat. Isn't that special?

As for the butt kicking, I don't find it sexist, only a bit crass. Besides, if anyone is going to do some butt kicking I doubt that it's him.
