Memo to Joy Behar: It was never hers

May 24, 2008

A couple of days ago, I read a piece by Alessandra Stanley titled “Clinton fades away on television.” I could comment on the mainstream media’s failure to cover those it does not favor, but I’ve already beat that dead horse over the coverage (not) afforded to Ron Paul.

No, in this short missive, I simply want to comment on a quote from “The View.” Whoopi Goldberg asked her co-hosts to describe Hillary Clinton’s “historic battle for the Democratic nomination.” Joy, you replied “a man took it away from a woman. Then they yelled at her for complaining about it.”

In those few words Joy, you’ve demonstrated that you are either a fool, or delusional. How can anyone ever take you seriously when you profess a belief that the Democrat Party nomination – and by extension, the Presidency – was Hillary Clinton’s birthright? Campaigns are won or lost; not pre-ordained. 

Please understand that I think Hillary should see her campaign through to the convention. As of the time of this writing, it appears that Barak Obama has the momentum, but the contest is not over. However, if Hillary doesn’t win, it won’t be because a man stole something from her. Remember Joy, you have to possess a thing in order for it to be taken from you.

Until next time,
