Hillary Sexism Watch, #109

And on and on and on it goes… Here is GOP Consultant Alex Castellanos, who also featured in #96 of this series, yesterday comparing Hillary Clinton (as she was in parts #87 and #90 of this series) to Glenn Close's character in Fatal Attraction:

Castellanos: [My advice to the Obama campaign would be] make nice with Hillary. And that would be almost impossible to do. I think the specter of Hillary Clinton hangs over this convention like Glenn Close with a knife in Fatal Attraction. She's just not happy.
Yeah, I know he's a Republican. And I know it's Fox News. (UPDATE: It was CNN. Even better.) But it's nonetheless fooking amazing that these kinds of viciously misogynist statements can still be made in public without hardly anyone batting an eye.

And that anyone who does is simply presumed to be a Clinton partisan. As if the commentary isn't objectionable just on its own.
