Hillary Sexism Watch, #115

[Content Note: Violent misogyny.]

During the 2008 election, in which former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was a primary candidate, we ran a Hillary Sexism Watch, which, by the end of 2008, had 114 entries.

Clinton hasn't even announced plans to run for the presidency in 2016, and nonetheless here comes the onslaught of misogynist bullshit in expectation that she might run. Exhibit A: Republican PAC The Hillary Project's promotion of the "Slap Hillary" video game, which allows players to slap Clinton across the face.

Katie's got more here, and wryly notes: "If this seems especially brazen and incriminating, just remember, this is the party that almost did NOT bring you the Violence Against Women Act."
