Shortly before the Ohio and Texas primaries, Tina Fey offered a raucous endorsement of Hillary Clinton that ended with the slogan, “Bitch is the new black.” Her friend and colleague Tracy Morgan has a few things to say about that.

I am appauld as usual by th erethoric coming from ‘Feminists’ - Clarification..Feminist= Revenge at all costs, Equal Rights advocates= Choosing the RIGHT person for the Job. I’m sick by NOWs Myopic vision. Reverse Sexism is STILL Sexism.
I am Against Hillary (this 2x Bill supporter) for what she has Done AND NOT done while in the Senate and the Armed Services Committee. she has failed at those Duties- I have no intention of Promoting Her.
Of course if Blacks are vting for Obama for the same twisted reason -becasues he’s black, they too are in error. First he is Half Black ( why does even one ‘drop’ of Black ancestory determine someones Race- He’s Bi racial). I am supporting Him becaue of his vision, insight, foresight and Oversight ablities.
Of course if you realize Hillary is merely Dick in Drag, you could consider her Bi gender.

What? Intelligence and sense of humor are required to watch SNL? I thought a frontal lobe lobotomy was required.

Truth is both were funny. And smarter than anything coming from Capitol Hill in far too long. Wanna see a nation turn on a hundred-dollar-bill and have fun doing it? Tina Fey and Tracy Morgan got my vote.

Did you watch Tinas video? She admitted to being a bitch. So it’s ok for a women to proudly proclaim she’s a bitch, but when a man addresses her after she’s announced that, it’s sexist? Anyways, it’s SNL, a sense of humor and a little bit of intelligence is necessary. smile

your contract that sending your children to Iraq was mandatory? Afterall what’s good for GE, is good for GE.

Your gal Hillary loves the war/fraud and by the way she and little chucky schummer voted for Mulkasey ‘Mr. waterboard’.

-and can you pls. take the glasses off, intelligence is on the inside and you’re all about the outside, which is why Hillary is your gal. Her fake smile like your pretentious glasses are stage props.

Just a little aside here, but I thought referring to her as a “bitch” was a sexist slur?

I hate SNL a lot. The show hasn’t run a decent sketch in over a decade, and, moreover, I don’t like television to begin with. Miss Fey does express exactly the reasons most people are voting for Hillary, though. Many people, regardless of what they say, want a dual presidency. They feel nostalgic for the 90s.

Let me tell you, though, voting for a Clinton will not be akin to getting a Alice in Chains Reunion show or watching a ‘Kids in the Hall’ tribute marathon. Nostalgia is not a measure of political substance. Stop depending on elected officials to make decisions for you and get involved in the process!

Tracy’s response was a little amusing, and he is right in the end because Barack will be the next president of the United States of America. Hillary’s going to have to live with that fact, and her supporters will have to fall under Obama because a Republican presidency this year is VERY unlikely and anyone voting for McCain is VERY disillusioned.
