WHEN A WOMAN RUNS FOR A “MAN’S JOB”
“Like Glenn Close, she should’ve stayed in the bathtub.”
“Iron my shirt!”
“Senator Clinton, when she’s feeling down, launches attacks.” –Obama
“Let’s not forget, and I’ll be brutal: the reason she’s a U.S. Senator, the reason she’s a candidate for president, the reason she’s a front runner is her husband messed around. That’s how she got to be senator for New York. We keep forgetting it. She didn’t win there on her merit.”
“They fined CBS a million dollars for Janet Jackson’s nipple. Think what they could get for Hillary Clinton’s cunt!”
“Somebody who can take her into a room, and only he comes out.”
