Hillary! Dissed by Rutgers’ “Ho” Team

They know a spade when they see one….
Newsday.com: Rutgers team skips Clinton meeting

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. — Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton finally dropped by Rutgers to meet with the school’s women’s basketball coach — but the players themselves skipped the half-hour meeting, citing their studies and Imus fatigue.

That didn’t seem a problem when Oprah beckoned….

I like this:

Put me in the camp of those who implore Sen. Hillary Clinton to give it back — “it” being the reported $800,000 that’s sitting in her presidential campaign coffers thanks to a fundraiser hosted in her honor March 31 in the Pinecrest, Fla., home of a huge Clinton fan who refers to himself as Timbaland.

In response to my questions, Clinton campaign spokesman Blake Zeff said in an e-mail this week that it cost $1,000 just to get into Timbaland’s fundraiser, that about 200 guests were on hand and that the senator was accompanied by former president Bill Clinton.

You would not be reading about Clinton or about Timbaland — who entered this vale of tears 36 years ago in Norfolk under the name Timothy Mosley — were it not for the fact that he is a well-heeled hip-hop producer and noted performer of the kind of misogynistic and denigrating lyrics that informed Don Imus’s derogatory comments about the Rutgers women’s basketball team.

Mrs. Clinton, you may recall, took umbrage at Imus’s remarks, branding them “small-minded bigotry and coarse sexism.” His words, she said in an e-mail to supporters, “showed a disregard for basic decency and were disrespectful and degrading to African Americans and women everywhere.”

Good for her, I say, except it must be asked why she was down in Florida making nice to — and pocketing big bucks from — a rapper whose obscenity-laced lyrics praise violence, perpetuate racist stereotypes and demean black women.
